Today was a MUCH better day. Thank goodness!
Late last night, all my stress from yesterday worked itself out. So, I bounced out of bed today feeling quite bridal and ready for my last day at work as a single person.
I bought a cantaloupe and a huge bag of spinach on Saturday and I’m determined to finish them before we leave tomorrow. Guess what was for lunch?
And a giant, unpictured spinach salad.
At lunch, I ran the 0.4 miles to the gym, ran 3 miles on the treadmill at a halfway decent pace, and ran the 0.4 miles back to work. It was sweaty, but a good workout. My gym time this week has really been almost Zen-like—it just feels so good from my head to my toes and so restorative in so many ways. (Aside from the fact that my shoes make my feet and legs and hips hurt. But whatever.)
Love Clif Kid bars.
PACKING. Tomorrow morning I’m going to get my orthotics (yay) early in the morning, then we’re putting all our wedding stuff in the car and making the eight hour trip to Chicago. Tonight…I have to do laundry, check my lists and check them twice, and dump everything into a few suitcases.
I am oddly really excited about the trip. Tim and I always have fun on long car rides—we both like driving on the highway and we don’t even listen to music, we just talk the whole time. It’s wonderful.
I’m not TOTALLY sure how blogging is going to work this weekend—we’re staying at my mom’s house without wireless (sob), but I am going to try to pop into the nearby Starbucks here and there with some quick updates.
The plan right now is to drive tomorrow, and spend Thursday getting our marriage license and meeting with the pastor. On Friday, we drop all our stuff off at the reception venue, have lunch with friends, and get ready for our rehearsal dinner and do all that. Then…Saturday…well, you know what happens!
Hopefully I’ll be able to check in from the road.
What’s your favorite way to travel? Are you a road trip fan?
