Tank: F21 (4.80 if I remember correctly)
Shorts: American Eagle Outfitters (I picked these up because the shorts were buy one for 10 so either these ones cost 10 or they cost 25 if you average the 2. Either way they were 100% worth it.)
Shoes: Kohl's (form 2010. Think around $30)
Jacket: NY&Co (before May 2008)
Sunglasses: Found between my baking sheets in my kitchen
If I have to say so myself, I'd say I did a pretty good job balancing my camera on a pole and getting these pictures at the wrong part of the day.
Dave woke me up again when he was getting ready for work. He blasts Howard so he can hear it wherever but that means I hear it. He will talk to me too. But I actually fell back to sleep after all the noise stopped. My alarm went off at 8:30 and I hit snooze. I stayed in bed in a daze until about 9. I was thinking about going for a run right away but didn't. I ended up checking my email. By that point it was 9:30 and I figured I better get a move on it to do my errands.
When I was getting dressed I heard one guy out on the scaffolding say to the other guy "Whoa I just got lightheaded there!" Then they went about doing what they were doing. A few minutes later they were covering our windows with plastic to paint. I was surprised to hear the guy say he was lightheaded and then continue to work. I was also surprised to hear them talk in English. Most days they are talking to each other only in Spanish.
In the Post Office parking lot, I looked up smog test on google maps and it said Pep Boys right near our house did them so I went there. I got there and they do not do them. I looked up smog test again and this time called the place to be sure all was good. I drove to Smog Me. That place was on the same road as the Post Office! I drove all kids of extra. At least everything was only about 1.2 miles away. Coming home I messed up too but I just missed taking a road that is more of a hypotenuse. At least now I'm all set for the DMV on Wednesday.
Poly was quite the annoying cat. She wanted attention but really she wanted attention from Dave and he's not around so she has to be annoying about it.
I did some emails and decided to quit slacking and just go for a run even though it was lunch and I hadn't eaten yet and it was sunny out.
I ran 3.1 miles. It wasn't so bad. It got easier. My goal was 9:45 pace. I had a lot of bonus seconds. My first split was the slowest. That involved crossing the street and I didn't stop the timer properly. I was going to run 3 but ended up turning around a little earlier than I planned because a truck was blocking the road. That meant I was getting back to the apartment prior to 3.0. Since I was running extra, I figured why not run a little more extra and run a 5k. My first split was 2:15 but my next 3 all were 2:11 (this is what pops up on the Garmin so the splits are always rounded down like a 2:11.9 will still show up as a 2:11 so I have to account for this when I make my bonus second goals and stuff). Then my 5th split was 2:15 again. I wondered if I would have 3 at 2:11 again but I didn't. I had one at 2:09 then 2 at 2:11. I still found that odd. Then the first split of my third mile was 2:15 again. This seemed a bit odd. But instead of 2:11 or even 2:09 I had 2:04s and a 2:09. (I guess I'll add a screen capture with the data to make it easier.) I don't usually notice a theme to my splits but that doesn't necessarily mean I don't have one. I also don't usually beat my goal pace by a minute.
There were lots of nice heels. I wanted some but I used self control. I found 1 pair of sandals that weren't thongs in flats. So basically I had no choices. Well they had the 1 style in both tan and black. But you could see too much base that was brown with the black ones so I went with tan.
I'm pretty sure Dave and I watched TV or maybe we planned on it but then he was trying to get the computer to work to record TV so I spent time on my computer or a mixture of both. All my days blend together now that I don't have a job. I did want to cross a few more things off my to do list so I cleaned the salt water taffy out of my purse. It just came out with hot water. I was surprised at how easy it was. If I would have known that I would have done it sooner.
