What is it about long weekends that make the week before and after the holiday seem to last forever. It’s only Monday, but it’s lasted three days somehow.
For the 4th, we just stayed home (was there really any other place to go?), grilled out a few times, cleaned up some of the mess in different rooms, and hung some more photos and artwork and stuff. We’ve been in this house for over a year and we’re still not organized. For shame.
We also watched Hamilton, much like just about everyone else in the United States. Still as fantastic as when we saw it live, and the original cast is amazing. If you haven’t seen it, what are you waiting for? If you’re worried you won’t like it, just stop. You’ll love it. It’s awesome.
Other than that, it was a quiet weekend. We decided to cut out HBO, so that saves $14.99/month. We had just finished The Sopranos, so timing worked out well. If we want to watch something else, we can get it back in a few months. I subscribe to entirely too much stuff. Hulu live TV, ESPN+, Disney+, Netflix, the New York Times, the Washington Post, SiriusXM satellite radio, Amazon Prime. It’s insane, and I need to be mindful of that. Every little bit adds up.
My plans for the week:
Run 4x. Ran this morning, so three more to go!
Do two other workouts. Probably a Peloton class and strength training.
Continue researching business ideas. I make little progress on my $1500 goal, but gotta keep trying.
Get halfway through my book. I made very little progress on this one over the long weekend, so time to buckle down!
Keep groceries close to $100. It’s my turn this week. Let’s hope!
Hope everyone has a great start to the week!
