Friday Five Short Week

Did everyone have a happy and safe 4th?  It got pretty warm here, but I did get out to see my neighborhood bike parade.  Each year they encourage everyone to decorate their bikes, and give prizes after the parade.  I don't have a bike, but went anyway to watch and socialize.  They were giving away snow cones and otter pops, and the adults chatted.  Someone mentioned we should get the 5th off as well.  Yes!  It's hard to stay up for fireworks at 10pm when I need to be at work the next day.  And let me tell you, traffic was quite light heading into work yesterday.  Moreso than normal summer traffic.


I finally decided to try a wireless headphone, and I bought Aftershokz Titanium wireless through REI.  I had a membership dividend to use, and I hadn't yet decided what to use it on.  Between that, and the lower price at REI, I got it for $40 off the vendor price.  Sweet!  They should be delivered early next week, and I will certainly post about them once I've had a chance to test them out.

  2. I have heard many people liking the After Shocks. I think for me I would not like that they sit above the ears. I'm curious to see what you think of them.

    1. I'm curious too. After a while my ears are tired of the buds.

  3. I was lucky because Thursday is my normal day off and I had already planned Friday off. I was supposed to meet up with my high school friends for kayaking but that kind of fell through.

    I love those AfterShokz headphones. You'll have to let me know what you think!

    1. I should take the day off next year. I think the 4th will be on a Thursday, so 4-day weekend!

  6. Yes to the lighter traffic on Thursday morning for work! I agree about needing a two day holiday for the 4th! :) Glad y’all had a good one. Can’t wait to hear about the headphones. I’m in the market for a pair.

    1. Summer traffic has been light in general. I like it since it doesn't take me as long to get home.

  7. Traffic was so light on Thursday and Friday of this week! I'm looking forward to hearing your thoughts on the headphones.

  8. Having the 4th of July mid-week totally messed with my mind. I kept thinking Wednesday was Saturday, so Thursday at work seemed like Monday all day. I kept asking co-workers if they had a good weekend LOL

    1. It was definitely weird. Most holidays give us a 3-day weekend.
