Oh so wet Wednesday

It's nonstop rain out there!  My puppy does need to be walked as much as I have been because she's been kind of crazy the past day since we can't get out much.  I'm wondering if I get her to hop the halls on her hind legs that that might be exhausting enough.  I'm going to parkour today and looking forward to the class. This is the more respectable class, instructor closer to my age and father but we do real parkour.  

I had the most frustrating experience at Massage Envy yesterday!  My appointment was supposed to be 8:30 and everyone else's therapist came to get them.  At 8:45, I went to the front desk to ask and was told my massage therapist was late because she was stuck in traffic but would be there soon. Yeah, thanks for telling me.  So, at 9:00 I went back to the front desk and the manager says she'll give her a call. I was told she said she could give me my whole hour because she had no one after me (Um, thanks, but what about MY schedule???). I finally asked if they had another person on who might be able to take me and thankfully there was. But, why wasn't that offered first? And, why don't they fire this person because it sounds like it's not an uncommon thing? I'd complain but I think it was the manager who handled it that way!

The rain has finally stopped here. The sun is supposed to come out and it's going to be cool but sunny today. I am totally ready for some sunshine. 

Jean, I hate when people are late; especially if you have an appointment with them. I don't get why people think nothing of letting you sit and wait when they full well know most people live by schedules. 

I am going to attempt to jog a few miles today and then weight lift later this evening. 

Since it is so cool out I think I'm going to bake a chicken for dinner and serve it with rice and some veggies.

My dogs keep tracking in their wet paws.  :P  Can you get him a fetch toy for the house?  That might keep him busy.  I think the last thing you need for destressing before a massage is the annoyance of the therapist being late!  UGH.  Karla, its cloudy YUCK for weather here...at least we don't have the tornadoes!  Did you hear about the house that exploded from a gas leak on Saturday?  I met some people that live in that neighborhood, and the house is completely GONE, with nearby neighbors living in hotels because their homes are not structurally safe, now.  The explosion was felt 15 miles away. :O

I woke up with a sneezing fit from allergies.  I had a PHENOMENAL time dancing last night!  My feet just HURT, though, since cowboy boots are not ergonomically comfortable!  But they sure do look good.  :P  Tonight is a rest night since my other dancing partner is on vacation this week.  I had some conflicts with my manager yesterday, but I am going to chalk it up to his super-sized ego...he is the McDonalds of managers.  :(  Life goes forward.

I couldn't get my post to 'take' yesterday...I copied it to email to save it and today, magically, it worked! Hope this one saves on its own! Jean, I hope you wore out the dog and not the other way around! Karla, glad you are getting sunshine, I heard the rain covered 2000 miles! But all we are is wet - the tornado scenes are just so sad....FSN, do others have the same issues with your manager as you do? Any hope of banding together? I had a lovely day..had my hair made a little more blonde ( and a little less gray), did laundry, cooked...gym was foam rolling, lifting for legs, abs, then 10 tough minutes on the Stairmaster....toughest thing in the gym for me but great calories for time.

I was saying if the definition of insanity is doing the same thing twice and expecting a different result, then anyone who is on a computer is insane.  I've had the same problems getting on and getting odd messages, even if mine has posted.  I haven't been on a stairmaster in so long! I used to be able to stay on, on the highest level, for an hour (major cheating though by putting some weight on my arms, which I know now but didn't then). It seems so unnecessarily exhausting to me these days to do that much.

SJ, yes, others on my team have the same "issues" with the manager.  I think I just need to keep the mantra that when other people treat you badly, it's more a reflection on THEM and not me.  I just need to hyperfocus on doing a good job, and stop letting others judgements define me.  I give too much power to those "above" me, and I need to stop doing that.
