26 hours

Rachel Breidster: Is picking up where she left off yesterday. She also hates writing about herself in the third person and will cease to do so, effective immediately. :)

I: met with the inspector yesterday promptly at 12:30 and he seemed more than happy with the work that was done to the porch. I followed up his visit with a phone call to the bank that went well, and am hopeful that I will get my money back in 7-10 days.

I: had the most delicious lunch ever at Java Jazz cafe in Delmar. Hadn't eaten there in years and had this amazing hummus, avocado, lettuce, tomato, tabouli wrap. So good!

I: can't believe I admitted that when I was in fifth grade I used to pray that I would wake up and look like my barbie doll. Granted the tv show only airs in Albany County, but still, sort of can't believe I would admit that. On the other hand, I am pretty psyched that I am happy enough with where I am now that I wouldn't think twice about saying something like that on air.

I: really wish it would stop raining. This shit is so lame.

I: just got back from getting an amazing massage to address my hamstring and back pain which has been mildly crippling. I wish I could have spent two hours. Or maybe even three.

I: am still in a fair amount of back and rib pain when I'm sitting down and sometimes wish I didn't have such a "desk job."

I: just got the estimate for the spray foam insulation and almost crapped my pants. It seemed like sucha good idea yesterday. And now it seems terrifying. Time to start tallying up costs.

I: am super excited to see a friend for some catching up this afternoon. :) There will be purchasing of socks, running tights, possibly some new heels, and items for the halloween costume. :)

FB statuses

I mostly work alone. I have some interaction over my cubicle wall with my badass admin who I adore, but for the most part, I spend large chunks of time by myself. During that time, myriad thoughts run through my head- some of which end up as facebook statuses, because due to the nature of my job, I have no one to say them to. Sometimes I wish I could change my status every time I have a new stream of thoughts, but I don't like to do that. So instead, I'm trying to breathe new life back into my blog by making a running tally of my thoughts throughout the day here. Think of it as the FB statuses that never had their chance to shine. . . until now!

Rachel Breidster: Is seriously going through withdrawal from taking a rest day from the gym in the middle of the week. She usually only "rests" on the weekends and feels like she's missing out on a lot of fun and good fitness by taking a rest day. On the other hand, she knows it's healthier and is determined to stay away from that gym today!

Rachel Breidster: Thinks one of the best things that can happen when you turn on your car is that Paul Simon is playing on the radio. Paul Simon is (not surprisingly in my car CD player right now, but it gives me a bit more hope for humanity when djs decide to put it on for the world to hear. Little mother and child reunion anyone?

Rachel Breidster: Doesn't understand why people cut you off making left turns when it's raining outside. Frankly, she doesn't understand why people ever do this (actually, she's pretty sure she understands it- drivers are self-centered idiots who are so arrogant they think everyone else should compensate for their careless and reckless behaviors), but especially in the rain. When the car with the right of way slams on its brakes to avoid hitting you while you're making the left turn you don't really have the time for, you do realize that car will just skid when it's pouring right? Great, now it's raining and your car is crashed. Brilliant.

Rachel Breidster: Thinks she thinks too much.

Rachel Breidster: Is so thrilled that the heat is finally on at the office. She was starting to think that hypothermia was unavoidable!

Rachel Breidster: Decided to wear a red shirt today and stop being afraid to clash her clothing with her hair. The pink has been in her hair for nearly 3 weeks and you can't just eliminate all red and orange from your wardrobe just because you've got some badass pink hair. And, she's glad she did it. Red is almost as fabulous a color as pink!

Rachel Breidster: Just got really exciting news from her boss and feels all warm and fuzzy inside. :)

Rachel Breidster: Has gone way too long without seeing her nephews and really wishes she could see them sooner.

Rachel Breidster: Is getting a massage tonight in hopes that her aching back and hampstrings will be better for her to run this half marathon over the weekend. On that note, Rachel is terrified of running a half marathon this weekend and hopes the blogs she read about training for distance through crossfit were correct. She also hopes it's not cold or rainy, because she seriously might chicken out and quit.

Rachel Breidster: Will update her blog tomorrow with highlights of the previous 24 hour's "status thoughts."
