Nothing Special, Really

When The Cat Is Away...

Wac's gone for the weekend, back in Cali for her sister's baby shower.

To the right of me is a Jack In The Box cup, to the left of me a pizza box (not a full one, just for two slices). I only got socially dressed today so I could gamble away $30 that I shouldn't at the casino. Luckily, I am good at poker compared to the others who play there & took 2nd place for $260.

Bachelor life, revisited. Tomorrow (or later today, depending on how picky you want to be) will mostly consist of watching football. In Wac's absence, I don't have to be concerned with her preference of only one football game at home on Sundays.

But bachelor life is different this go-around. Through nothing but self-motivation, I threw on my running clothes this morning (hence the prior use of the phrase "socially dressed"; I technically got dressed twice today) for a 2.3 mile run with the first 3\4 mile being a near non-stop incline. As far as tomorrow (again, referring to Sunday here), I might be a bad Steelers fan and skip the first half so I can run 3.5 miles.

I can't say that I've fully caught the running bug, but lately I find myself starting to enjoy running more. It helped that I was able to do the 2.8 mile run last Sunday with little trouble. Wac tried to take me on a 4 mile run Wednesday night; I made it over 2 miles before I had to call it quits due to chafing (my blog so, no, it's not TMI). That was disappointing because I felt like I could have done the whole thing.

My pace probably wouldn't even break speed records for snails but slowing my pace down a bit seems to really help. If it means that I have to lumber across the finish line in January, then lumber I shall. I think the big victory here, though, is that I'm enjoying it all, which is something I wasn't able to say a couple of months ago.

Choosing running over football tomorrow might make me a bad bachelor but whatever.

Besides, Wac doesn't come back until Monday; I can still save the strippers & coke bonanza for Sunday night.

  • I keep waiting for your triumphant post job offer blog entitled "Yes I can!" but it has not come.

    Are you still in a wait and see period for this latest interview?

    We're keeping our fingers crossed over here. I really think it's just a matter of time. It sounds like you are doing all the right things.

    Hope the strippers and blow went well last nite.

    I'm going to MNF tonight. Hoping for at least a 1 point Cards victory. Not drinking the kool aid just yet.
