Early Sunday Morning Luck

Well, maybe not so much. I planned on sleeping in. And, for the record, slept through what Tina described as one hell of a thunderstorm. Still, I was up by 7:30 AM. Granted, not early by even my standards, but earlier than I had planned to rise. Which turned out to be a good thing. See, we were out of coffee.

Yes, I know. We should be ashamed of ourselves for allowing such a development. We won’t, obviously. But we should. Now, do you mind? I’m trying to tell a story here.

Anyway, I had to make a run to Target. They have a store brand called “Archer Farms.” The coffee this brand sells is organic and free trade. Also, it’s excellent.  I know this because I’m sipping it as I type this. Finally, it’s cheap. And this morning on sale for $4.99 per 10 ounce bag of grounds.

Well, the store opens at 8:00, which I didn’t really know until I got there. Honestly, I had thought they opened up at 7:00 AM. But, not the case. So, luck was with me. Actually, luck seems to be playing a large part of this morning, from my waking up, to arriving at Target at 7:58 AM, to finding the coffee on sale. And all this while there was a break in the storms. Hell, there was even sunshine.

I know, I’m surprised myself. I just might go buy myself some lottery tickets.

And this, ladies and gentlemen, is why I bought my house.

Alright, Alright!

Shopping it is. Also, it’s frigg’n cold out. I had to turn the heat on so I could shower comfortably. Sheesh! Anyway, you all try not to destroy the place while I am gone.

Seriously. Don’t be dicks.

Testing a Plugin

Trying a new plugin that is supposed to automatically submit my blog posts to Facebook. Hoping it works.

And it didn’t work because I don’t have an https site. Bastards.

What To Do

I’m debating whether I should go running, go shopping, or plop my ass on the couch and veg for the day. To be honest, it’s exhausting! I really hate this adulting thing. Decisions, decisions. I can’t wait for A.I. to finally come online, take over the human race, and make all our decisions for us.

Now if you would get the hell off my lawn it’d be appreciated.

Jet Pack Gone

Well, interestingly enough, now that I’ve deleted the Jet Pack plugin from my blog it seems to run faster. I also deleted my WordPress account, which also seemed to be dragging down my blog. Even my media library, which used to hang up some days and always was slow loading now is lightning fast.

So, to any of my readers out there (which may have dramatically dropped now that I don’t have a subscription option with the removal of Jet Pack) with WordPress blogs who use Jet Pack how does it work for you?

Running

After taking a day off I didn’t do to bad on my run today. I’m still recovering from the 8 miles I ran on Sunday so I am pleasantly surprised I managed a 9 minute 38 second mile. After going 3 miles in roughly 30 minutes I did a .77 mile walk to cool down. I decided to go up on the west side of Norton Park and find my way back home through the woods behind the house. Surprisingly there were only a few mosquitoes.

The Back Woods!

Happy Birthday

Words are insufficient to describe how my life is better with you in it, Tina. You are the reason I wake up in the morning. You are the reason I come home after work. I live for those moments when you experience simple joy; the perfect meal, the beautiful walk, the wonderful movie. And though I may pick on you, and tease you, it is because you are the love of my life.
