  • Early day... Run day... Maybe heat day?

    2/12/2020 9:29:03 AM, by ROSENJ1965

    The heating & plumbing guy didn't make it yesterday. He called about 8pm to ask if today @ 10am would be okay. He sounded so beat and afraid I'd yell at him. I didn't, of course. Things happen and it's still unseasonably warm in Philly, so I knew we would survive another night. I told him that would... Read more

    Here is an image of me with makeup on. I don't usually wear makeup but I had a doctor appointment today and decided I might as well put that stuff on. All went well but I have some work to do. For instance, I need to get some prescriptions filled and schedule a mammogram. Typical. Of course, I... Read more

    Made it to the Planet Fitness and got in my run. Well, half my run. I got worried leaving the condo alone sans heat with a little heater running (BFF was home, but not sure he was awake yet), so I cut the run in half and headed back. I ended up showering at home in the "just warm enough" water - but... Read more

    Constant rain this morning and chilly enough that I'm thinking running in it and then having a coldish shower after isn't going to be ideal. Yesterday I gave into that since it was my normal "day off" anyway - I even fought my way through the worst of the blahs and "I want to eat all the things... Read more
