Back to gratitude 1/19/2017
Thursday, January 19, 2017
I am grateful that I love to walk. I feel awful if I can't get in 10,000 steps a day. This morning was a trial though. I typically park about a 3/4 mile from my building. Today was no exception. The forecast called for rain but it was pretty clear when I got out of my car to get to my building. Suddenly the sky opened up and it poured. Then it hailed. My parking lot turned into a river. My sneakers and pants got drenched.
I'm so glad that I keep a backup pair of shoes at the office and that I had I workout clothes with me. I had to change out of my slacks. Every part of them was soaked. My sneakers were no protection for socks underneath. I think my underwear is even a little damp.
Now it's back to partly cloudy again and the sun is trying to come out. I'm at my desk typing this blog in my workout clothes and backup shoes. The rest of what I put on this morning is trying to dry with a heater in an empty cubicle.
My mantra when it rains and I'm far from home or work or my car is always "It's only water" but this time it was a lot more.
