Today was supposed to be our cleaning day, and to that end, I think we did a pretty good job. I cleaned two of the three bathrooms today ( I would have cleaned all three but I forgot about the last one and never got back to it). I vacuumed downstairs. Kelly put away all of the holiday decorations and did laundry. And we tried to stay warm.
We did go out for a short walk early this afternoon. Ultimately, I cut it short, however, because it really was cold out today.
At 2:30 PM, I played Tiger Woods 2009 online with John from work. We played Doral and he ended up beating me 66-56 over 18 holes. I couldn’t seem to put well, but otherwise, I played very good. We both aced the #5 par 3. And I had a couple of eagles, including a par 4 eagle. But I just couldn’t get the putting under control and that’s what cost me. Still, it was a lot of fun, and the first time I’ve ever played online.
I did some writing this afternoon, about 600 words of "Rescue", but I thought what I wrote was pretty bad. You know when it’s good and you know when it’s bad. This was just one of those times when it was definitely not good. I am generally even tempered and not sensitive about my writing, even when it is not great, but this was just bad, plain and simple. I kept writing for the sake of getting words on the page, which is what everyone says to do, but they were just words, and not very good ones I’m afraid. On the rare times when this happens, it tends to mess with my attitude for the rest of the day and I’m afraid I wasn’t in the best of moods thereafter.
Kelly and I went out to Sports Authority so that she could pick up some Under Armor for our trip to New York City next weekend. The temperatures are not expected to get out of the twenties.
My new Oakley sunglasses that Kelly got me as a Christmas present have some kind of defect with one of the arms and I have to take it in to see if I can get it exchanged. (According to the receipt, this should be no problem.) We’ll see how that goes.
