I’ve been battling first weeks at work, a week of birthday celebrations and now a week of kitchen sink troubles.
When I fell asleep on Friday night I slept for 12 hours straight. Sounds decadent? I should mention I woke up just after eight on Saturday. Yup. I’m now the girl who falls asleep at eight Friday night instead of having a night out.
I guess at a newly minted 29, I shouldn’t really be compiling about aging yet, but. I do feel tired all the time. A crazy work schedule might have something to with it as well.
This year, I’m not just teaching full time, I’m teaching with a 1.5 load. :o
As I told my friends, that roughly translates to, “See you in spring!”
I’m trying to get back to running post-HM to weeks ago and also trying to keep up with gym classes. But honestly, there are days when after I’m done with work, have all I want to do is crawl under a blanked and sleep.
I’m battling that.
Today though. Plumbing. Holy moses. I’ve spent the entire day on plumbing. I’m the fix-it-yourself girl, incapable of asking for help until I’ve been washing dishes in the bathroom sink for five days. :/
So I’d been seriously trying to unclog the thing since nine am. At around eleven I went to the hardware store to get a drain snake.
(Snakes. It had to be snakes.)
Speaking of snakes, Prisoners with Hugh Jackman was good.
By two I was ready to punch the wall.
Also realised I needed more tools.
So I laced up my speedy shoes.
Yup, I’m running once a week in Mizuno Musha’s now. They feel like Converse compared to the level of support and stability I’m used to… But I love them!
More on that later.
So the trip to the store, which would have annoyed me to know end otherwise became a chance to run instead of punching the wall and cursing. It was also one of the first times I’ve run on a no run planned day and when I’ve run to get somewhere.
I was carrying a small backpack and got to the store and back (all 4.something km of it) in half an hour. Plus. I got home a lot more relaxed than before.
Talk about killing two birds with one stone. (I actually don’t like that expression.)
In the end, nothing worked and I ended up calling a friend of a friend for help and working with him and at almost one in the morning… water’s moving again. :)
I’d rather talk about my awesome birthday party.
Superhero themed with about seven litres of fresh vodka mojitos is a gigantic glass vase. Geeks alert.
But I’m too sleepy.
I’d like to write about a walk around the lake I took with my students a week ago…
Or the September summer in Estonia…
Which only seemed to end today.
But I guess I’m just too sleepy for that.
Awake in five hours. Here we go again! :p
