My travels today were much smoother than Friday’s, and for that I am grateful. I wasn’t up for another day of delays.
Ariel and I took today easy, which was a lovely way to end our weekend together. We went to bed late last night (I actually stayed up reading Harry Potter for about an hour after we decided we were too tired to finish watching standup comedy on Netflix), and I didn’t set an alarm. I first rolled over around 8:15 am, then I repositioned myself and didn’t wake again until 11:15. Ariel had already gone to church, so I climbed back into bed and read some more Harry Potter until she came home.
We hung around in our pajamas while talking and drinking coffee after she came home, then we went to her gym to get a workout in because I still needed one more RunBet run for the week. Then, we changed clothes and went for a 3:00 lunch, where I enjoyed a particularly delicious cheeseburger with chorizo on top and a cocktail with good conversation. Then, we grabbed drinks from Starbucks, and it was time for me to finish packing and get out of town.
I had such a wonderful time celebrating Ariel and meeting her New York people, but it was also nice to spend today together doing friend stuff since we don’t do that nearly as often as I would like. The shower was great fun, today was a fabulous day of friendship, and tomorrow will mark the beginning of a marvelous (but looking quite busy!) week. I’m ready to make it a good one.
Something that made today great: I was going to pick spending the day with my best friend again, but it might be consider cheating to pick the same thing two days in a row. So, I’ll pick sleeping in (see below).
Time I woke up: 11:15 am
