October came in warm and sunny and full of stress, at least for the first part of the day. This week is bringing in the 4th quarter at work, a three month period that’s known for being hectic. I suppose I’m being warned to prepare; much like winter, fourth quarter is coming.
The day as a whole wasn’t bad though. I was feeling down this morning, but Forsh brought me surprise Noodles and Co. for lunch, which was pretty legit! I decided to use half my lunch to do a zombie mission. I didn’t get the half hour because I stopped to talk to people, but I did get my first zombie chase, so that was pretty exciting. I tried a new accelerometer setting and was apparently walking fast enough to trigger it. I was only doing a supply mission, so I was kind of surprised when the voice told me zombies were 100 feet away. You’ll be happy to know I was able to escape, though I think anyone watching me probably thought I was nuts. I got about sixteen minutes of good walking, and I think I’m going to try to fit a lunch walk in most days until the snow and ice hit.
Jon and I decided to skip the gym tonight. This means we’ll miss our gym goal for the week, but we’ll be doing a lot of walking this coming weekend in OKC. We’ll do the gym tomorrow and then Thursday night after we get to Rose Hill, we’re going to walk around and do some geocaching. It just felt like a good night for a rest.
We picked up Wendy’s for dinner. That apple pecan salad…it’s going to happen again.
Being home early meant I had some time and an excuse to clean for some extra activity, so we put away laundry and cleaned some of the living room and bathroom. Not a whole lot, but enough to make a difference. We also packed our weekend suitcase so we won’t be running around tomorrow night trying to get that done. I finished a movie called Dread, which managed to disturb me, and started watching The Doors. I also did some knitting and finished a boot cuff. I was going to try to do more, but my wrist started hurting. I thought it was carpal tunnel acting up, but I’m able to type just fine, so maybe it was just fatigue.
We put on the Scentsy burners tonight and our apartment smells like Christmas. I’m going to shower and get some sleep in hopes of being perky tomorrow.
