It’s been one of those days.
It started out good enough – I subbed the 6:30 a.m. Friday hot vinyasa class at Y2 (which I always take) because my teacher was out of town. And although I honestly missed practicing, I loved teaching the yogis that I usually practice beside.
I had a client meeting this morning and arrived at work around 10:30. And then things went downhill. It started to pour down rain and storm. Which usually wouldn’t be a big deal but I had plans to meet a friend downtown for lunch to talk about yoga teacher training.
Noon rolled around and the rain hadn’t let up so I grabbed an umbrella and headed out. The series of events that followed are pretty much laughable now.
I parked in a deck downtown and thought I could make it to the restaurant without going outside (through inside building tunnels). Well, I didn’t park in the right place and ended up having to walk two blocks and never finding the restaurant. I.was.drenched. Torrential rain. I walked back to my car and proceeded to have a knock down, drag out fight with the deck attendant. I didn’t have any cash and their credit card machines weren’t working. All you need to know is that the end result was me getting out for free. 😉
I drove off in search of the restaurant, rain pouring down, and proceeded to get rear ended. Yep. I can’t make these things up. I called Brandon in a panic and he came to meet me (he works really close by). Luckily, there wasn’t much damage to either of our cars so we cancelled the 911 call.
I mean, seriously. Look at this rain we got! It was only three hours of really intense rain but it caused crazy flooding. I went home to change after the lunch fiasco (needless to say I never made it to the restaurant and felt so bad about standing my friend up :() and our power was out.
I stopped at Berrybrook Farm on my way back to the office and picked up some lentil vegetable soup and a kombucha. The rainy, gross day had me craving a warm, comforting lunch.
I’m home now and truly feeling the TGIF vibe. Honestly, I have to just laugh at the day that I had at this point. I’m lucky that no one (and no car) was hurt in the accident. Brandon and I are off to dinner and a movie and I’m looking forward to an extra sweaty and extra hard yoga class tomorrow morning. It’s going to be a fun weekend!
What do you guys have planned for the weekend?
