Finally! I’m back!
It’s been a long but very productive day.
It was actually kind of nice to not have access to the computer for the first part of the day. It cut into my "sitting around and drinking coffee while reading blogs time" and helped to get my butt out the door for a run.
AND I NEEDED THIS RUN.
Last night I realized that I registered for the wrong Praxis test that I need to take in January for teaching certification. I was trying to change it online and because I’m impulsive and was not thinking clearly, I ended up cancelling the test by accident. I should have just waited until today when I could talk to a representative. BUT NO. I was panicking and felt that I needed to do it IMMEDIATELY.
So now the website tells me that I will only get back $30 of the $120 I spent to register.
I called today but they can’t see it in their system yet, so I need to stew over my stupidity for another few days.
There was crying.
And pillow punching.
I just threw $90 into the toilet. Great.
I really have an issue with being 5 steps ahead of myself sometimes and not being able to see the bigger picture. I felt totally overwhelmed when I realized I registered for the wrong test, that I honed in on that and couldn’t think straight. Lesson learned. I just really hope they will be understanding enough to give me more than the $30 refund. (Since I will be rescheduling a test on the SAME day and SAME time).
Run was good- 5 miles/49 minutes.
After my run, I hit up Trader Joe’s for a few things. Including some corn on the cob which was rotten and I need to take it back. Gross!
Lunch was a loaded sweet potato with black beans, cheese, corn and bean salsa, and greek yogurt.
Pre salsa & yogurt
With all the fixins
Dinner was turkey burgers w/pepperjack cheese (grilled the outside in the cold and rain but it was worth it) along with zucchini fries, carrot sticks, and one of those little persian cucumbers.
Side Note: This picture only shows a small portion of the zucchini fries that I actually consumed. SO ADDICTING AND DELICIOUS!
Now I’m going to unwind a little and catch up on some blog reading!
Are you impulsive when you are feeling anxious?
Have you ever lost money on something stupid and just felt sick over it?
Do you grill in the winter?
