Sometimes at the dinner table my family does "high-low" where we share with one another the lowest and highest points of our day. I thought we should try that here - it's fun to learn about each other's daily lives.
LOW: When I arrived at my gym last night there was a sign on the door that as of April 1st the gym would be closed, indefinitely. Was this an April Fool's joke? No, it was signed by 2 lawyers and it is legit. What?!
I still have 3 months of membership left that I've already paid for, and I'm told today I'd have to file an insurance claim to get that $ back. More importantly - we're only talking like $30 - this is my favorite gym and so close to my house. It's the place where I reduce stress and get in shape - two needed things in my life. And I think it's the only gym in town with a steam room. I love the steam room!
HIGH: The upside is I worked out hard last night. Feeling that it would be my last opportunity, I cranked up the music in my earphones and ran like crazy on the elliptical machine for 3 miles. Then I hit the weights with a vengeance. I burned calories and reduced lots of stress - woke up today still sore and starving!
Today I had to run a few errands. While out I discovered that my favorite brand of "energy bar" now comes in some new flavors. I eat one of these nearly every day for breakfast, so that excited me. I bought and tried the chocolate-pecan flavor and loved it! (Note to self: tell LeAnn because she loves these bars as much as you do.)
MORE HIGHS: Next I had to stop by a consignment shop where I had left a few items of clothes back in February. My contract was up and they had sold all but one jacket. So I got a check for $25. In my twisted girl-logic I decided that my clothes shopping habit could actually fund itself now that I found this consignment store. (Note to self: Don't think any further about that. A close examining of that logic won't leave you feeling as happy as you are now.)
Then I had to return a blouse at the Belk's department store - due to that clothes shopping habit I mentioned. While there I found a cute pair of casual, low heels on sale for just $10 including tax! (Note to readers: Do not ask why I was shopping in the shoe department when I was there to return a shirt.)
So those are my highs and lows from the last 24 hours - what's been yours?
