I am heading to Florida on Friday for two work events this weekend. Yes, I’m going to Florida, but I’ll be there for work. I have very little time to actually enjoy what Florida has to offer, but at least I’ll have warm weather to enjoy!
I am probably most excited to get up on Saturday and get a run in. I am only going to run six or seven miles, but there is a great park only miles from my mom’s house and it is beautiful to run there. I ran there last year at this time and loved it! The park has a long causeway that ends at a small oval shaped beach. It is surrounded by beautiful water views. If I lived by the water, I would run there every single day. I also found this article on the 30 Convincing Reasons to Start Running Now. I especially love #14, run outside, which I will essentially accomplish on Saturday with my run in Florida. #19, run with your dog, Bo loves to run with me! Finally, #26, it is a great stress reliever, thankfully. I can’t even begin to tell you how a run has helped me not hit someone in the face with a hammer.
I had to have a plumber come out yesterday. I have had a plumber out for three years in a row now for the laundry room plumbing. In 2013, Jeff and I had just returned from a mini-vacation when we discovered the drain pipe had frozen. In 2014, the drain was fine, but the hot and cold water pipes froze. This year, our hat trick, really was fun. The drain pipe AND both water pipes froze. Yup. The plumber charged me an arm, a leg and a kidney. He had to open up the drywall even more to gain access to the spot in the drain pipe where it froze. He gave me a few tips and I think I’ll be able to handle this on my own if it happens again.
Our pipes are on an exterior wall and there is plenty of insulation surrounding them. The way they are situated, there is a lot of cold air that gets to them. I need to do a MUCH better job at watching the weather forecast. When it his 25* I need to put the washer hoses on a slow drip. Just another reason why being an adult is stupid.
Why do you think that being an adult is stupid?
A few additional thoughts on that include paying bills, not being able to take a mid-day nap, working during the summer and not being able to eat whatever I want and not gain any weight.
