That’s it. I’m getting a new pair of tennis shoes. Maybe two. I need a pair that I can keep in my gym bag because apparently I can’t rely on myself to remember to put them in if I’m not wearing them. I skipped the gym yesterday, using the excuse that I was playing hockey so I didn’t need to go (I really should have gone anyway.), so I definitely have to go today. I went out to my car, grabbed my backpack and made the 2 1/2 minute walk to the gym. When I got to the dressing room I realized that in my desire to look a little more spiffy today, I didn’t wear my tennis shoes, and also neglected to make sure they went into my gym bag.
I also had another “ARGH” moment today, this morning at about 5:30, in fact. I half-woke to a thunderstorm sometime between 5 and 5:30 this morning, which was nice because I love thunderstorms and the sound of rain when I’m sleeping. I continued to snooze in a half-dreamlike state until there was a loud CRACK outside. I was startled, but still pretty drowsy and slightly unaware of whether I was dreaming or awake. My mind began to mix the storm sounds in with a nightmare — I was dreaming about code, and how I could change it to make the thunder less loud without making it go away completely. I’m crazy.
