Lazy, rainy Sunday

I didn’t want to get out of bed this morning. I was very comfortable and wanted to sleep in some. I guess I did sleep in a little bit. I think I finally got up around 8:30 AM. Kelly and I had breakfast and finished up some laundry, and then we headed out to do some grocery shopping, stopping at Target and the grocery store.

Kelly headed home early today in order to avoid being caught out on the roads when the rain started, and to have time to go to the gym. I spent my entire afternoon in the productive activity of watching episode after episode from season 6 of The West Wing. I could have spent that time cleaning up the place, which has gotten to be a bit of mess. But why bother, right? There’s always tomorrow.

I spoke to he11o_sunshine on the phone this afternoon. I also called Mom to wish her a Happy Mother’s Day. (Did you know that today is the 100th anniversary of the Mother’s Day holiday?) And I called vickyandnorm to congratulate Norm on his graduating from UConn yesterday and obtaining his Ph.D. Now I’m packing my lunch and heading off to bed. I’m back to the gym in the morning, and this week, I’m back to strength training in addition to cardio.
