1- TX. Thinking about TX readers who are still going through power outages and cold. NYT Article with links on how to help HERE. I just donated to Feeding Texas via the ActBlue link. (If anyone has personal recommendations on which organizations, I will take them — otherwise I’ll just pick one by end of day. #satisficer)
Addendum: Donated to Feeding Texas via the NYT link.
2- DR! I went to my PCP for the first time in >2 yrs because I needed an RX for a mammogram (my first) because . . . well, I’m >40. Nice to verify good blood pressure etc too.
3- I did book my ticket for NC. My sister is excited. I am excited. I’m sure my niece will even be excited! She is nearly 13 months and I have never met her. Truly a pandemic baby and my sister has made it through the first year of motherhood with almost no outside support. I don’t think we will be doing family air travel any time soon, but this trip feels important and I am glad to be going.
4- Current read: Emma Straub’s All Adults Here. So far I like it, but not as much as the last 2 books I read (esp Oona Out of Order!). I’m averaging about a novel a week these days. (10 days if I love it less, 5 days if I’m super into it).
5- Speedwork. Today’s run: 10 minute warmup / 3 x (30 sec fast / 30 sec recover) / 3 x (45 sec fast / 45 sec recover) / 3 x (60 sec fast / 60 sec recover) / cool down. I like these types of workouts, they go by very quickly!
(Note: I accidentally programmed the intervals for 30 minutes instead of 30 seconds and had to just use my stopwatch! Oops. Garmin fail. But it’s done!)
Honey Os and oranges and a happy 3 year old.
