I got an easy 8 miles on the treadmill this morning, finishing up the finales of both The Bachelor and Celebrity Apprentice.  What the heck am I going to watch now??  Ah, don’t worry, I’ve got lots to keep me entertained in the morning.  And, some day soon I might actually get outside before work when it starts getting lighter out!

I saw a great quote on the way to work this morning:

Courage is not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. 

We’ve had some crazy weather here in Ohio.  The temps soared and created a bunch of fog the other morning.  I could barely see to drive to work!  Spring is definitely right around the corner.

Speaking of work, I’ll be so glad when next week is over.  I’ve been leading a nomadic life.  My office at Job A is still in a mess and our desks are not complete.  The desktops are now scheduled to be finished by the end of next week so hopefully next week we’ll have a place to put our stuff.

Job B was relocated on a temporary basis, so I’ve been living out of my backpack.  Literally.  Yep, I still use the same backpack I used in college.  More than anything I think that speaks loads about the quality of this brand of backpack!!

See, I’m all equipped for a technological emergency.  Toothbrush, toothpaste, comb and a spoon for my yogurt 😉  The good, but bad, thing about Job B is that they are always having potlucks.  So much food around all of the time.  I have no control in these situations and I end up snacking a lot!  Not helping the “getting to race weight” situation folks!!  Enough!

Here is further evidence that I am a nomad.  This is what was in my car today…

Part of the excuse here was that I was going to maybe go to the gym after work, so that was taking up space in my front seat too.  But, since I have an obligation to get that school yearbook finished in less than a month, I decided I best spend my time working on that during the chess lessons today.  I did make quite a good deal of progress, so that’s a great thing.

And as always, Thursday is the best day of the week, so woohoo to that!  I just loaded up my iPod with some entertainment for my 18 miler tomorrow.  It will be a mix of new tunes and podcasts.

Fingers crossed it will be a great day tomorrow too!

Q: Do you prefer a backpack, briefcase or large bag for toting your stuff around?

Q: Don’t you agree that potlucks at work should be limited to just once a month??  

A: For the love of our waistlines, yes!!

    1. It’s amazing how much stuff we accumulate over the years. I do remember moving out of my parents house after college with just a tiny truck with a bed and some clothes. But, houses are like purses – the bigger they are, the more stuff they hold!
