Most of my posts have gone up in the morning because I get up very early, do whatever workout I’m gonna do, walk to the train, and then arrive at work with about an hour to a half hour before I’m supposed to start. Since there is not much to say about the time spent at my desk, once I get here I use that time to recap my morning and the night before for you all.
Today however, was an anomaly. This is why I am posting this in the evening. My new bed was supposed to be delivered on Sunday but I made a mistake scheduling the delivery and ended up having to have it delivered today. I still got up unreasonably early and went for a quick run, but instead of returning to shower and quickly leave for the office I returned to shower and anxiously wait for delivery. Shockingly, they arrived at 9 am and finished putting it together in time for me to leave by 9:30! Amazing! I was afraid I was going to have to work from home but I was able to leave in time to be only just a little late.
For this reason the blog post had to wait til after work.
I have to say I am thrilled about this new bed. Sleeping well is super important to overall health especially if you are training for something. Having slept on the couch this past weekend and Monday night, I am STOKED to go to bed.
I am also inspired to throw even more stuff away!
