It is 9 in the morning and I should already be at the gym lifting chest/triceps. But I'm not. I'm still here on my couch with my coffee and my cuddly puppy. I am enjoying this so much I've decided to procrastinate even longer by typing out this blog post instead of getting my ass off the couch and to the gym.
My poor Jetta took a turn for the worst this week. On Wednesday, my busiest of all days, my car decided it didn't want to work anymore as I was driving to the gym. The check engine lights started flashing and things went downhill from there. Luckily, I live very close to a Volkswagon dealership so I just turned around and drove straight there. My poor car will be there at least until Monday getting fixed. Since I am going to be spending a fortune, they were kind enough to let me borrow a loaner car in the meantime. I am currently driving an executive edition CC. Let me just say, this car is awesome. If I weren't weighing the pros of buying an American made car (ie: less expensive repairs...damn you German engineering) I would consider buying this car.
Matt had a Change of Command Ceremony on Wednesday. I was supposed to be there, so naturally my car chose that day to stop working. It all worked out though because I made it, in time, looking pretty. Unfortunately, I missed my coffee date with Amy though. Anyway, I kind of love some of the Army traditions and symbolism involved in a change of command. There were speeches, the passing of the guidon, and some formation type stuff. They even gave me flowers (which surprised me because I am not a spouse). I am (not so) patiently waiting for the pictures to be posted on Facebook. The soldier taking the photos showed me on the camera that looks like it will be a really nice photo. I want it. And I will continue to stalk the Facebook page until it appears.
Times like these, when I'm typing a lot of my phone, makes me miss my BlackBerry. The iPhone is fine. I use a lot of apps that I couldn't get on the BlackBerry (I'm looking at you Instagram), but I hate typing on this thing. I have to go back and fix at least one mistake per sentence. I'm fully aware that is probably a result if user error, but it doesn't make it any less annoying. If I were to tweet that, I would probably hashtag it #firstworldproblems.
Tomorrow is the start of National Athletic Training Month! I have a special post planned out about athletic training, and more specifically, the job setting I currently work in. Industrial athletic training is a little known setting and I'm super excited about bringing a little more exposure to it. So you should be excited too. At least pretend. Thanks. :)
Well, I suppose I can't procrastinate any longer. Off to the gym...
