Hi there! I’m back in Fort Lauderdale 🙂
Coming home from a super relaxing vacation is never easy, but it definitely helped that Adam and I got home on Saturday morning. It was so nice to know we still had a full weekend ahead to get caught up on everything we missed while we were exploring the Caribbean!
Our first stop of the morning was HOME so that we could drop our luggage off. Cecil was still at my mom’s house at this point so we wandered around aimlessly saying “it feels so weird that Cecil isn’t here” over and over again. Okay, so it wasn’t quite that bad! 🙂
We took some time to unpack and then we headed out for breakfast since we had no food in the house.
We had not been to an IHOP in forever. I would really like to know who eats red velvet pancakes for breakfast because that just sounds really extreme. I went for a plain omelet and Adam had the chicken fajita omelet. We are clearly not extreme people.
On the way home after breakfast we stopped at the pet store to buy Cecil a new carrot. When we were cat sitting Georgie he became obsessed with licking the carrot and Cecil was not happy about that so he needed a new one.
After the pet store we still had some time to kill before I was meeting my mom to pick up Cecil so I decided to go to the Apple store to buy a new laptop.
I have had the same Macbook Pro for seven years and have been thinking about upgrading for the last couple of months. While we were on the cruise I head about Apple’s recycle program which allows you to get a gift card when you turn in an old laptop — that was the info I needed to finally do it.
I packed up my Macbook Pro in its box and headed over to the mall to turn it in. Unfortunately I learned that they only accept iPhone and iPad recyclables in-store and I would need to mail my laptop in.
I still really wanted the new laptop so I bought it anyway. I have a Macbook Air from work that I really like so I decided to get a Macbook Air for at home too. The new Macbook Pros are really nice but they are overkill for what I need right now.
After picking up my laptop I headed over to my mom’s to get Cecil! I think he missed Adam and I while we were away because he stuck to our sides for the rest of the day.
I did fit in a short little run on Saturday but it was one of those awful runs. My legs felt like cement and I just didn’t get my mind into the run either. I think it was because I was really tired. The last night on the cruise ship I barely slept (idk why I just couldn’t fall asleep).
It felt good to be back into a normal routine but other than that I was glad when the run was over. I think it was also humid as hell because a storm was rolling in!
Now it’s time to go back to work… where’s the coffee? 🙂
CONGRATS to all of the London marathoners!
Anyone use Apple’s recycling program? Thoughts?
What’s your best tip for getting through a run that you’re just not into?
