Weekending...

I feel like I have not had a long weekend in ages, and now this one is already over. Today was a huge success by my very low standards, but I think even normal people might think it was a success. I got up moderately early and went biking with my dad. We were investigating biking to work, which is around 9 miles from the house. It was deadly hot out, even before noon, with a heat advisory issued bright and early. We toughed it out and got to our workplace in around 35 minutes with a stop at a stoplight and lots of hills. So we figured to allow an hour from the house to actually being at work, in work clothes and actually working. I think that's a reasonable amount of time since I normally allow 30 minutes for driving, parking, and getting to my desk. My cross training day is Monday on the schedule, and then I have been cross training on Fridays as well, so maybe I'll do the biking to work thing one of those days. More likely Friday because there are fewer people in the office so I'm less likely to nasally offend people.

Then I had a 'tea party' at the house of my high school English teacher. She has alumni get-togethers every year, I just have not attended since the first year after high school... 7 years ago! Yikes. Most of the attendees were YOUNG, 18 and 19, but I did get the chance to reconnect with a couple of classmates my age. And eat some fantastic finger sandwiches. Delightful. I am not super psyched about work tomorrow, but it will be good to get back in the groove of waking up early after this lazy weekend...
