Not that I'm in a rut or anything

It's Wednesday.
Could've sworn I just did Wednesday last week. Only back from vacation one week and I'm in a rut.

Exercise du jour: 2 miles jogging. Which I also did last week. Geez.
Could really use some gratuitous excitement here. Instead, I'm off to work. Will try to get the damn exercise done some damn time during the damn day. Check back later... much later...
Done! Amazing how running changes the mood. I forgot to bring my workout clothes with me to work, so at first I thought I'd have to put jogging off. But since this was my day for working late, I knew 'later' would translate to 'never'. And I refused to admit the possibility of never.
It's amazing how everything that went wrong turned out ending right:
I went across the street and bought new workout clothes -- which turned out to be 40% off.
It was too hot to run on the track -- but the shady forest trail was green, leafy and cool, perfect for running in my geeky new clothes.
In fact, it was quite a nice little run. I went back to work and sat through all the dull, late-hour meetings feeling positively good about life.

Thanks to XKCD for the cartoon.

You'll get there. Put on the running shoes. Walk to the door. Open door. RUN!

(Uh, perhaps I should add, Lock door behind you? But you get the idea...)

Some days are like that... Again I say, you'll get there.

Want to bottle raise a kitten or two? At least it would shake up the ol' routine. Nothing like getting up in the middle of the night or having to do the kitten shuffle to keep from stepping on them to keep things lively.

Looks like someone took a picture of my morning commute.
