Monday Musings

Does it ever feel like there aren’t enough hours in the day?  That was my Monday.  I have a big presentation I’m working on for next week.  I got to work early so I could leave early to swim, but I just didn’t feel like I was in a place to leave when 3 pm rolled around.  Instead I put the back up plan into effect - the 9 pm swim class in Cochrane.  Except I also had a lot to accomplish at home including laundry.  My tax return (very important). 

And a little bike maintenance. 

The Cervelo went into the shop yesterday for a tune up and won’t be ready for pick up until Wednesday.  I needed to get my road bike ready to ride at spin class tomorrow as it has basically been sitting dormant in my garage since early November.  By the time my tax return was done and filed it was 8:20 pm.  I had 10 minutes to make a decision – swim or fix up the bike.

I opted to fix up the bike as I knew there wouldn’t be enough time to do it before spin class tomorrow.  I still feel guilty about not swimming and there is no time this week to make it up.  Oh well…

All of your comments to my Three Things Thursday post gave me a good chuckle.  22 pairs of shoes at work is a lot, I know!  They all go inside one of the drawers of my large filing cabinet at work, along with some body spray and baby wipes for days when it is a little hot over my lunch time run.  22 pairs of shoes doesn’t even begin to approach the total number of shoes I own though as I haven’t counted how many I have at home!  I blame my genes (my mom loves her shoes too!) and years of watching What Not to Wear while living in close proximity to DSW and an Aldo outlet.

Oh, and Rock Star, they are all briefs.  Every single one of them.

Yes there never are enough hours in the day for me! I have too many projects/hobbies/chores/etc etc!

I agree. There are never enough hours in the day! It's horrible! Don't beat yourself up for not making it to swim... life happens.

I agree with Poindexter.... Besides, if you need to miss a workout, a swim is probably the best choice...

22 pairs of shoes?!?

I agree about there never being enough hours in a day, though, even on vacation!

Sometimes something just has to give. Sounds like a productive day all around even if you couldn't get your swim on.

You made a good call I think. :)

It is so funny -- now when I am running or riding I'm always scouring the ditches looking for underwear --- I haven't found any yet. Hahahahaha!!
