Another hot one

I WAY didn’t get up to run this morning.  I didn’t get up until almost 0740.  I did have a little bit of time to chat with Ryan while I was getting ready though, and that’s always a nice way to start my day!  After breakfast I headed to the band hall for formation and a long day of not much.  I had a few little supply things to do but that was it.  I finally got a stapler and tape dispenser and sticky notes for my office.  After lunch was more of the same, and then I got my horn out for an hour and did some playing.  It’s still not pretty, and today was kind of frustrating because I didn’t really hear any improvement.  But I know it will take time and I’ll get it back eventually.  I just need to remember baby steps.

After work I accepted my punishment (given by me) for not getting up and going running this morning.  Thursdays are one of my nights where I go home and shower and have lots of time to stitch.  Well, I came home and changed into PTs and went for a 2.74 mile run (in just over 30 minutes).  At least it had cooled off to 113 (from 116).  After I got back, I changed shirts since you can’t wear sweaty PTs in the chow hall and grabbed my weapon and headed to dinner.  I had lasagne and applesauce and a Gatorade.  Then it was back for a shower and hair-down time and stitching.  I did manage to get an hour and a half in, but I could have had over 2 hours if I had gotten up this morning.  Oh well!  I also had nice chats with Ryan, D, R, and

.  Now I’m finishing up e-mail and message boards and heading to bed.  I will get up in the morning to run as I’m meeting up with a friend (not NJ) at 0530.
