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.
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
