Today, payday, we finally got to take Dan's car for a new car battery. It's been sitting dead in the driveway for 3 days! He's been taking the van to work, and I've just been riding my bike everywhere. (Fortunately, I'm able to do that.) The plan was to go to Sears and drop it off and have lunch together. It turned into "Sears is too expensive, I have a different place I want to go" and then "The other place can't do it because of the way my car is built, we have to go to a different cheaper place" and by the time we actually dropped his car off, it was time for him to go back to work! And I had places I had to be, so I ended up just having my lunch at 3pm. People should not mess with the eating schedules of women who are on Sparkpeople. Just sayin'!!!! I went to my Physics class and I was starving; all I could think about was food, and I know I took rotten notes. :/
Anyway, my walking friend who meets me on Fridays canceled, so I went to the gym and swam laps. I got 1200 yards in 35 minutes! That's about 10 minutes off my last time I did that distance!!! I was in a hurry because I had to be done by a certain time, so I could get my oldest daughter to school on time. So I must've swam a LOT faster! From now on, I'm going to really push the envelope when I go.
I've decided that since I don't get much money, because I'm a leach...I mean, stay-at-home mom...anyway! I've decided that when I clean the old lady's house that I clean every 2 weeks for cash, I would keep that cash for myself and not spend it on my kids. So today I went to the dollar store and I got a lipstick and eye shadow for myself. I can't remember the last time I bought makeup for myself!!! It made me feel so feminine all morning long! Then the car battery stuff happened at lunchtime and hubby didn't even notice that I looked different. *sigh* I guess that was irritating too. :(
At least I'm staying in my calories today. And I swam. And tomorrow will be warm enough for a long bike ride...if I get my homework under control tonight, I'm planning on a nice long ride tomorrow!!! It's not been all bad today, I guess. Spark On.
