****This was actually yesterday's post and I was just too tired to post ****
Today I woke up at 8:30 so that I could go to my GO PEI learn to run group. It is a 10 week program ending with a 5K. I think that will be marvellous. We had a wonderful walk on the boardwalk of North Rustico. I thought I took more pics.
After we were done I went to my brother’s cottage to help him clean up after the installer just put in new windows. They were supposed to come at the beginning of the week but did not get it done until Friday. He was down to the wire because he went back to Japan (Where he lives) early today. Once we were done, I was so exhausted and hungry. Oh yes. I had planned on grabbing a chicken wrap for lunch after the run (but no Double Doubles). Usually everything is closed in Cavendish this time of year but they were doing a “30 days of summer” promotion to extend the summer season ‘til the end of September. I drove through and of course everything was closed. I had a box of bars in my car in case I forgot my lunch when I was working so I would avoid the drive thrus. I had two bars for lunch; One right after my run and another a few hours later. Mom and Dad dropped of Lavinia when they were on their way to a wedding and we were both tired and hungry when we left the cottage. I was thinking we could go to Tim Horton’s and I could then get the chicken wrap.
I dropped some things off for my brother and a sequence of stupid things happened. First of all, I was lazy and drove right down to the porch instead of walking the things down. The second was that I had my sunglasses on and did not take them off. When backing out my peripheral was blocked by my sunglasses and the car was also on an incline and had to gun it a bit to back up. I backed into a tree. Yes I did. I went on for years about my parents backing into my van with their car. “How can you just back into something? Don’t you look where you are going?” Well, it happened to me. Luckily it was so fast that we weren’t really going fast enough for too much damage. The car is fine (because it is my parent’s old one that backed into about three things so you don’t notice), I am fine, Lavinia is fine, I think the tree is fine. The first thing that came to mind after I realized everything was ok was, “I want Chinese Food.” Who does that? Anyway, we did go to Subway. I did get bacon on my sub witch was not the best choice but I suppose my meal was better than Chinese food.
On Saturday nights we have a “sleepover” in my room where we have popcorn and watch tv. I am hoping for a restful day today and I am so thankful that another week of nights has been changed to days. I’m starting to go into Zombie-mode.
**** Update: I did not get a lot of sleep but did have a restful day and am turning in for an early night. I have my lunches done for the week and both Lavinia's lunch and mine are packed and ready to go for the am.****
