I don't have a cohesive blog post today. Just a bunch of random things going on :)
1. I bought a bike lock!
It is still raining, so I haven't gone to pick up my new bike from Canadian Tire. I did, however, go to a bike store on my way home and pick up a Kryptonite Keeper lock. I had heard Kryponite was the bees-knees for affordable, but tough, bike locks. Toronto kind of has a problem with bike thefts (I don't know if it is better or worse than other cities, just I hear a lot of stories) so I wanted a good lock. Canadian Tire doesn't sell this brand, however, so I decided to pick it up before getting my bike. I also picked up a red/pink coloured bell!
2. I got a bike parking spot!
Even cheaper than my new lock and bell is my new bike parking spot. My condo building starting offering an indoor area to lock up your bikes and it is only $30 a year so I was happy to find out they still had spots available when I went to inquire. I hope to have it all in order before getting the bike, but if not at least I have a good lock for keeping it outside
As I mentioned on Monday, my DCP treatment caused my thumb to break out in blisters.
It was almost a week ago, but they still haven't healed completely (I kept it bandaged). I have no idea what the blisters on the back of my head look like, but they definitely feel a bit rough still. I called the clinic and they said not to come in this week and let it heal a few more days. Then next week they will decrease my dosage to prevent a repeat. So now I'm not supposed to leave early from work on Thursday. Should I mention it at work? Nah..... ;)
4. Waffles, Omelettes, and Toasties....Oh My!
I bought a Big Boss Grill from a Dealfind for the office. My boss wants my coworker and I to eat better lunches, but our options were limited with just a microwave so I bought this grill! It is a griddle, grill, omelette maker, waffle iron, sandwich maker, and donut maker. So far this week I have eaten an omelette, waffles, and a pressed sandwich. Each was more heavenly than the last and I don't think I can ever go back to my Easy Mac cups from Shopper's.
5. Rain, rain, go away
In addition to not being able to pick up my bike from the store, this rain is seriously depressing me in these "warmer" days. I bought a running rain jacket with a birthday gift card to Winner's, but I really don't want to run in the rain. So I have been back in the gym on the treadmill. I am happy to report that I think I have gotten my running mojo back after a bad week last week (even if it is on the treadmill). Also, in rain-talk, I need to buy some rainboots. My current boots are poorly made and have different sized leg holes and one is too tight to fit my leg with skinny jeans on. This is what happens when you buy the cheapest boots you can find...
6. Bathroom update
I still haven't ordered the vanity top for my bathroom sink. I blame the rain. Who wants to TTC to the middle of nowhere in Toronto to find a Home Depot and order a vanity top? Not me. Plus I am terrified of giving the wrong measurements. Sigh
Is it Friday yet??
