I took a sick day off work today, based on the logic that I have more sick days per year than personal days. I call them mental health days. Anyway. I slept a grand total of ten minutes later than usual… and decided not to run, because even though I think my knee is better, I’m afraid of injuring it again. Which is a weird fear, since I didn’t hurt it running in the first place, but whatever, it’s not the end of the world if I don’t run — I just like to know that if I wanted to, I could. Instead, I made cottage cheese oatmeal pancakes.
And then I somehow totally miscalculated how much time I would need to get to the gym and Ouidad, because I left home an hour earlier than I needed to. Um.
Let’s not discuss how much this cost. There is a reason why I get my hair done so infrequently! It’s quite a nasty cycle: I get a cut / highlight, I style it properly for a few weeks, I get annoyed because it never looks quite right when I do it on my own, I start pulling it back / using other products, which in turn cause buildup so I have to wash it more frequently, which dries out my hair, making it more difficult to deal with… and then it eventually gets too long to pull it up, at which point I know it is high time I take care of it. :p
That’s at the end of the day, after it went through a total wringer. Because today was the Yankee game!
It was made even more awesome since we got to see history…
(That isn’t my picture — but it totally exacerbated my already-powerful case of camera envy!)
I immediately called my dad to tell him that A-Rod had hit his 600th career home run, and my dad had to wonder, “Would he have done that if I’d been there?! Oh, well, I’m happy for you that you got to see it.” Hey… you had your chance. 😉
Final score — I was a happy camper. 😀
It was definitely a better way to spend a day than working. There aren’t even the words to compare. Even if my Google Reader is currently exploding, as well as my head, it was so worth it.
Random photo, just because it was also quite lovely:
Savory oats. I have figured out why I didn’t like it quite as much the first time I made it; it’s because I didn’t use Frank’s then, and apparently, that is essential. I used Yves Meatless Ground Round Original this time instead of Lightlife Smart Ground Original, but I can’t say I definitively prefer one over the other!
Hope you’ve all had a fabulous Hump Day and will have an even better Thursday… it’s back to normal life for me. *sniff* But right now I need to go tackle my Reader…
“A baseball game is simply a nervous breakdown divided into nine innings.”
(Yeah, yeah, yeah… that’s only true if my team loses)
