How are you guys? Better buckle up for this recap because it is action PACKED.
I can’t even include Friday because I went home after work and vegetated. Talked myself out of going to the gym, ate snacks, went to bed early.
Saturday morning, I headed out for a run and actually felt pretty good, probably because I didn’t run very fast. It was quiet and sunny and cool, and I set a time instead of following one of my usual routes so I could see something different.
Later that day I drove to my parents’ house in Michigan, where I spent the evening doing my taxes. Boredom, frustration, etc. ensued.
I started my Easter Sunday with a walk to Starbucks, Northville’s main/only attraction for teens. Starbucks + hanging around downtown = my middle school years.
The summer before 9th grade, I helped supervise day camps at the theater with the ‘Peter Cottontail’ sign for $50 a week so that my parents would let me try out for a soccer team based in another city that fall. It was super awkward because I can’t sing, and I got screamed at and fired two weeks in for wearing flip flops onstage (we were supposed to wear closed-toe shoes). Still scarred, Mom.
We met my Aunt Nicole, Uncle Dave, and cousins Fred and Claire at my grandparents’ house for lunch that afternoon.
I got on the road Columbus from there. The highlight of my drive was, as always, construction traffic. Below you have a car seeing the backup, turning around, and driving the wrong way back up the middle of the ramp.
And now I must return to work! Happy Monday.
