Not all weekends can be Nonstop Geriatric Fun.

Aside from having wine slushies, there was a fair amount packed into last weekend. I did a full (and somewhat miserable, the other guy in the studio room probably thought I was dying) shoulder workout Saturday morning, then returned home and had an amazing breakfast burrito, cleaned the kitchen, and napped. Having a twinge of lower back pain that I surely exaggerated plus B needing to fill in for someone's shift meant I was in bed early that evening. On Sunday I went back to the gym for a lower-impact workout, then was at Pret trying to stop sweating* when Blake texted asking about my location. I marched up to Duplex again to have brunch with he, Mattie, Joe, Peter, and Peter's current person interest, Trey. Not a bad time, and lovely pancakes! Most of us regrouped at JR's for a drink after that, though it wasn't super populated and the music kept skipping.

Another productive thing that came of my weekend: I revived my long-dormant planning blog! I reclaimed the URL and put in some recent content with photos. While I don't yet have any particularly deep or insightful recent posts, there are good starting points and I have more drafts in process. Having had something nutty like 13 blogs over my adult life, I'm not pressuring myself to make that one perfect. As long as it includes somewhat current content and it contributes to my professional presence**, I am satisfied.

*Literally. It was 99 degrees, and after cardio I conveniently continue sweating for a while.

**Though it feels a little artificial, this truly does help keep me in a secure place career-wise within DC's planning world.

Frankly I am not anticipating more than an entry a month, so it will be easy reading! :)
