John was travelling, so he was not there when I got home. But he left all of my favorite things - a card, chocolates from Stam, flowers, Fruity Pebbles, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, Bombay Sapphire gin and 1800 tequila. I did not open the 1800, but gin and tonic was my drink of the night.
And the next day, I slept in, walked to the grocery store, and cooked myself breakfast. All things that I have not done since I've been studying. Yes, that is biscuits and gravy. I deserve it, damn it all.
Since Sunday, I'm now officially whipping my body back into shape. John and I rode 10 miles on Monday after I spent the majority of the day working on the landscaping. Tonight, I did 17. It feels so good to be without pressure. Sunshine, free time, and fresh spring air has me in a better mood than I have been in months.
