Three Things Thursday

1.  Yesterday:
My mom and I waited until after dinner to go for a bike ride.  It was over 90 degrees here for the second day in a row and it was still pretty hot when we went out at 6:30.  It was good to get a ride in though because on Tuesday the heat totally zapped my motivations and I didn't exercise.  It could have been the same story yesterday, but I'm pleased to say that I got out there.  The only tough part is that when I go with my mom I have to remember to go slower so I don't leave her behind.  I'm used to cycling alone, so it's hard.  It can also be frustrating when you know you're going to stop for ice cream at the end and you just want to get there and she's dragging behind you.  See that, I'm so mean that I care more about ice cream than my own mother!

2.  Today:
This afternoon I have my second dress fitting.  My maid of honor is coming with me and we're going to hang out and grab a bite to eat after.  This is nice because at my first dress fitting I drove the 30 minutes to the shop only to put on the dress and take it off within 15 minutes.  It was kind of silly how short the appointment was.  I'm hoping I get back early enough so I can squeeze in a run after dinner.  We'll see what happens.  If not, I'll just have to do a couple extra laps around the mall.

3.  Tomorrow:
Tomorrow is Friday.  Which is so very welcome because it's a 3 day weekend!  My plans include sleeping, exercising, and generally sitting around and doing nothing.  Tomorrow Patrick returns home from a short trip to Maine that he had to take to finish up his student teaching.  I'll be very happy to see him.  And with any luck, I'll be able to get in a longer bike ride tomorrow.
