Seriously frustrated.

I can’t even.


Anyway, it’s been a bit since I posted, circumstances and such.  Friday I really had nothing to post.  I spent the day doing stuff in Kansas City, which was really nice.  They have a liquor store with a bourbon selection about triple anything in town.  I have a BOBS this week, so I picked something up I am pretty sure nobody has tried, and MAYBE a thing or two for myself.  >_>

Spent the rest of the day shopping with the wife, and it was really nice except for the rain.  I was OK with it though because there was no lightning in the forecast so my swim was safe.  Right?

Wrong.  Got to the pool, and there was a sign on the door.  Closed for a private party.  Grrr.

Oh well, can’t control that.  Saturday came along and I was feeling really motivated.  It was pouring outside though, so I did my hour run on the treadmill.  It’s a great tool for times like this, but it is sooooooo boring to run that way.  It was that or get soaked through and deal with 20 mph winds to boot.  So I did the treadmill.


Later that evening I was feeling extra motivated, so I did my bike workout for Sunday.  I finished after 11PM, but I was thrilled to have gotten it done.  It would make Sunday an easy day, and all I would have is my swim.  I was determined to do a great swim to make up for Friday.

However, I am well aware of Murphy and his damned laws.  I got my swimsuit on and was preparing to go when I had this funny feeling I should check the pool hours today.  99 times out of 100 that just confirms the pool is open and its fine.  However, wouldn’t you know it?  Today the pool is closed for a swim meet.


I mean, the WHOLE day.  not even any evening hours.  All my good intentions, poof.  I should have waited to do that bike, because now I have nothing.

Sometimes all you can do is laugh.  Oh, and have a drink of the bourbon I bought Friday.

Ah well.  Have a good rest of your weekend!  Cheers!
