>In which a change in routine is a good thing

>I got a call yesterday from my real estate agent, letting me know that there was a great property on the market that I should come take a look at. The price, the location and a lot of other factors meant this one wouldn’t be on the market long so it would be better to act sooner rather than later. I was able to juggle some things, not take a lunch break and head out to see the property yesterday afternoon. Which, I will admit the house was nice but it’s not what I’m looking for. For one thing, there’s a lack of storage space (only one closet in between two bedrooms) and the other is it’s located on a road that could be widened in the near future thus meaning I’d have traffic coming right past my front porch.

All this is to say I got out of my normal afternoon routine of leave work, go and work head, head home and then eat dinner. Yesterday I went wacky wild and left work, headed home, ate dinner and then worked out. Seems the Smyrna Y is open until 10 p.m. weeknights with the indoor pool open until 9:30.

So, I decided to head up there and give it a chance later in the evening. And I’ve got to admit, it was a pretty pleasant experience. The Y was less crowded around 8 p.m. (honestly, the nursery closed for the night) and I was able to work out while enjoying a new episode of Scrubs (before I hit the pool that is).

The only negative was–well, I was watching a new episode of Scrubs and I’m sure the people around me were a bit worried about the guy on the elliptical trainer who was trying his hardest not to laugh out loud at some of the jokes on last night’s show.

I wrapped things up with some laps in the pool, took a shower to rinse the chlorine off, went home and unwound watching the new Veronica Mars on tape. Yeah, I know–it’s hard to unwind watching Veronica Mars since it requires that you pay attention to every single detail but it worked for me.
