1.) TRAFFIC JAMS. Every day there's something different, always at the exact time I have to go to work (even though that time changes every day!). First there was a police chase and a shootout, then tons of construction, then plain old rush hour... it's the only straightforward way to get to work, but I am getting soooo annoyed with I-95!
2.) Leaving Gainesville and therefore not getting enough pool time to train with the intensity I need to for my summer swims. I've been swimming 9x/week (=14+ hrs, around 20,000 yards) which has now been cut down to 4x, 6 hrs, and 14,000 yards. When I'm supposed to be swimming a 12.5-mile (22,000) marathon in 5 weeks. GRRRRR!
3.) Work, calling me and changing my schedule at the last minute, even though they promised they would try not to. This is the reason I have to stop now, to go back to work for the second time today. I got up at 3, started at 4, drove till 2 PM, got home (worn to a frazzle) at 3:30 (BECAUSE OF THE TRAFFIC JAMS), and now have to go back again to start at 8:30. Granted, I then get the next 3 days off, which is wonderful, but I AM VERY VERY TIRED RIGHT NOW.
Anyway, I could go on, but I'll stop there. But, to counterbalance:
10 things that have made me happy lately:
1.) Moose Tracks frozen yogurt.
2.) Renate calling and thanking me for my letter.
3.) Old Navy tank tops.
4.) Sybil - if you haven't read it, you should.
5.) White Oleander coming on TV this weekend.
6.) My swim coach (and a lot of the members) being hard-core Democrats.
7.) The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants being made into a movie.
8.) (Probably) swimming the 50 free and 200 IM at a meet in Brunswick on June 11th.
9.) Ordering Twilight Children (by Torey Hayden) through the Bookmine for almost nothing.
10.) A few of my friends (Nika, Carolyn, Danielle, Renate, and Erin) finally getting back in touch.
