I feel so much more relaxed this way and I just seem more awake for some reason even though its earlier.
Trying to pick up a couch for the apartment this week - found one we really like and is super comfortable for $500 which is not bad at all. Couldn't believe how expensive some couches were though.
Good morning all! I hear ya on the prices of a couch, Stigy. Wife and I bought a leather sectional last year and it wasn't exactly cheap.
I started my exercise routine this morning. Some of you may remember that I've mentioned bikeriding before. It's very difficult to get motivated to do it when I get home from work so I got up early and went for a ride this morning. A storm front came through last night and temps are supposed to be in the 80's for the next few days. It was a beautiful, cool, sunny, and NOT HUMID
day and the bikeride was wonderful. I got up at 6:00 AM but was only able to ride about 7 miles due to the time. I'll get better/faster as I get used to the morning routine.
Speaking of storm fronts, we got some thunderstorms last night. Of course, since it's NC, they were cleassified as Severe. The majority of them formed just south of us so we didn't get the worst of it, but the thunder still upset my poor dog Molly, who's terrified of them. We put on her Thundershirt and my wife snapped a pic with her iSheep device. It's not the clearest pic as Molly wouldn't sit still, but she's so cute in her Thundershirt!
