The temperature has warmed up a bit lately, but I am still feeling cold. My office is always freezing. I keep saying I will buy a space heater, but I really dont want to spend the money. I am also feeling pretty tired this morning. More so than normal. Not sure why that is because I went to bed at normal time. I skipped office PT this morning - I keep doing this and no one has said anything to me... But my gym bag is packed so I plan to get in a run after work. I am just feeling blah this morning. I accomplished pretty much all of my work yesterday so I dont really have anything going on today - I plan to get in a bunch of studying during the day since I scheduled my military education test (the first one) for next Tuesday. We have a three-day weekend so I should be able to get in a bunch of studying. I am tempted to take leave tomorrow and give myself a 4-day weekend, but I cant really justify why I should take a day off, other than the fact that I dont really have any work going on right now...

I finally called the Building Department today to get my pergola inspected. No lie. Tomorrow is the absolute last day I can get it inspected before my permit expires. The thing has been finished since August (minus some painting that stil needs to be done). Lazy much? I couldnt even remember where I put the building plans and had to scramble this morning to find them. So the inspectors are coming tomorrow. They could have come today, but I didnt leave my plans out for them. If you dont leave them your plans they wont inspect it (even though they have your plans on file - but whatever). The thing has been standing for quite a few months so I cant imagine there are any problems with it. It has held up through the storms we've had recently, so I think it's solid.

Last night after work I got in 25 minutes on the elliptical. I wasnt really feeling it, but I pushed through, and I was glad I did. I had my ipod on shuffle and I wasnt as pleased with the songs that came on like I normally am. I think its about time I put together some new playlists and download some new songs. After the gym I went home and made a Hungry Girl recipe - the Spicy Chicken Crunchtastic Supreme - its a knockoff of a Taco Bell Crunch Supreme thing. But obviously healthier. It was pretty yummy and really easy to make so I will probably do that again tonight. And definitely tastier than taco bell, especially because I used my homemade taco seasoning!

    I am so feeling it also. I skipped spin last night and was downright angry this morning for no reason. I am so sick of this cold snap! Next week is supposed to be better but at -9, I can't think that positively. My space heater under my desk is on all the time. I am taking tomorrow afternoon off and we are headed to Palisade for the wine tours Sunday/Monday. Ususally the Grand Junction area is much warmer, only supposed to be 21 on Sunday. I need some Miami!!!! Good luck with the inspection and keep warm!
