How did I let 4 days go by without an update? Bad, bad Brigitte!
This needs a bit of explanation. Thursday was the first really warm day this Spring. It was in the upper 70s and sunny. Contrary to everything I know about myself, I thought this would make a GREAT time to go for a run.
But here’s the thing. The sun is my kryptonite. I overheat like a carburetor. It doesn’t even need to be that hot. So, true to form, I wilted. I had to walk a bit. I think my total run distance was closer to 1.75. bleh
I had the best of intentions on Friday, but I didn’t manage my time well. Lucus came home from work a bit early, so we could beat the weekend crowd on our way to Santa Rosa, where we had tickets to see Mike Birbiglia. I also had a meeting with a potential new client! All told, Lucus and I got caught in traffic and barely had time to eat dinner.
Long story short: My 20 just didn’t happen.
After spending the night in Santa Rosa, we drove to Sonoma to meet the California branch of my family. I was nervous heading over there, but we has a great time. We ended up staying 5 hours!
By the time we got back to Sac, I was wiped. We spent most of those 5 hours socializing in the sun, and it was in the mid-80s. I tried to nap a bit, failed, and basically Lucus and I ended up heating up some leftovers for dinner and watching a movie.
I don’t regret it, though. I had a great time with my California cousins (first cousins twice removed, I think) — and there was no way I was heading back into the heat once I got home.
