I got my car back yesterday morning. It now has a new AC breaker switch, new dry belts and new struts (whatever those are). I just drive it, I don't know what makes it work.
This week has been a little different, which means my workouts have been less intense. I seem to hit these moods or these times right before vacation, but when I need a break, I need a break. I've already done the whole "let's not listen to the injuries and push through them, otherwise the Sergeant major of a coach will yell at me to get going" phase. I did that in high school and college. But now I can listen.
Not to mention Pure Barre kicked my muscles and my hamstrings were still tight on Wednesday, after the class was on Sunday. Yeah, I'd say the class worked on those. I even found a knot in my right periformis. Please tell me this will work and help me strength train.
I'm starting to mentally put together my packing list for Napa. The trip's coming up fast, and I started my countdown at 90 days out. This got here fast! I'll be gone a week so double-digit shirts will work, right? I seriously need to start setting aside what I want to bring and make sure it all fits in my suitcase. The one positive? Buying liquids in San Francisco, so I only need an emergency bottle of contact solution.
If y'all have seen the news about replacing Andrew Jackson on the $20-bill, I voted for my pick on Tuesday. For those who don't know, there's a campaign to replace Andrew Jackson with a woman, and we're down to the final 4 candidates. I chose Wilma Mankiller who was the "first elected female chief of a Native nation in modern times". Poetic justice. Jackson is famous for signing the removal of the Native Americans and forcing them along the Trail of Tears. A huge portion of that native population were the Cherokee, so not only a female Native American and a Cherokee to boot replacing him on the $20? I like that idea, plus I'm (small) part Cherokee.
Thinking out loud with Amanda.
