Where the Hell is 5am!

Oh big plans of waking bright eyed and bushy tailed at 5am...where did you go. Why do you keep me thinking my alarm clock is some complicated contraption that just needs to be hit really hard to stop killing me.

Sigh.

Maybe tomorrow but the last two days I haven't gotten up till after 6:30. Maybe it's cause I am not going to bed till 11. I know better as I know going to bed at this time does not lead to a bright eyed 5am Leah.

I am up to my ears in a todo list and so I plan on working pretty late tonight and then Jason and I are going to go to the gym that is on site here. There is one treadmill, so I will run first and he will work out and then we'll switch. Takes twice as long...but this gym is like 30 bucks a year....so I can't complain.

Last night we got home to a freezing apartment and opted to hang out at a local coffee shop reading till the guy came to fix the heat. When we got home he was just finishing up and we got a spiffy new digital thermastat which should be awesome, but is keeping our apartment at 62 degrees...which although chilly.....is actually fine by me since heat isn't free. That's what electric blankets are for :-) After doing ab work and some pushups we both showered and then headed out to meet the cousin and her hubby for dinner at Penny's Noodle Shop. The walk there and back was probably a bit over 3 miles, so that counts as some good cross training I would say....especially considering there was snow to walk through.

Alright, onto a long day at work and then a long night at the gym....three weeks (!!!!) till our vacation.
