As for my door, maintenance has a master key along with management to my apartment. But I have claustrophobia really bad. As a result, my door is never locked. Just thinking about it brings on a sense of panic.
I've heard multiple stories of people who live in apartment buildings (or were going back to a friend's apartment) waking up in the wrong apartment after having too much to drink. One woke up on the couch before the apartment's resident woke up and snuck out without anyone being the wiser, and the other woke up laying on the floor of the bathroom with someone pounding on the door. Luckily for her, the guy in the apartment was just concerned that she was ok. Anyway, that's what you not locking your door made me think of :)

This is what I did this morning: neither of my critters seemed too impressed, but it's pretty hard to impress a cat. I'm only going to be here for half a month before I move to a new city, but my kitties aren't used to being locked in, so I just didn't want to do that to them even for a few weeks. Especially when the weather is so nice!

Thursday afternoon I water walked for 75 minutes in the pool, then went to aqua chi class for 45 minutes. When I woke up friday morning I felt like a truck ran over me. ai trudged through work with a terrible headache & stomachache. I went to bed at 4:30 pm & woke up at 8:30 am. Today I am still feeling a little sluggish. Walking in the pool did not seem to be that much of a work out. It was easy with no sweating I feel like I have drank 2 gallons of water since then, food has no appeal for a change.

Perhaps because we're couch potato - desk job people, we find that prolonged moderately heavy exercise acts as an appetite suppressant.

::shrug:: I'm a server and a lot of times when I get off work and I'm physically exhausted nothing sounds good to eat even though I can tell my body needs energy. Don't know the science of it or anything but I know the same thing happens to me, and I'm VERY active. When I'm not running around carrying heavy trays at work, I'm disc golfing, rock climbing, hiking, etc.

I am sitting here working on my embroidery. I am going to have to stop for a short while. I keep nodding off sitting up. Not a good thing. I woke up real early this morning and have kept myself busy doing little things around the apartment. Tiem for a break.

I'm having a cup of tea and watching the petals blow off my hawthorne blossoms. It looks like a swirling snowstorm.

I think I'm going to read a book. I've been watching a lot of netflix lately instead of reading, but I don't have wifi right now, so back to the pages. Probably good for me. Only thing about Netflix is that I can get stuff done around the house while I watch my shows pretty hard to do that while staring at a book lol

Just came back from a four-wheeler ride to the back area of our property. Glenn and I and the dog, Harley, rode out to feed the fish in the pond and to enjoy the outdoors.

It's not oppressively hot today and we had a good ride. Even though we've only had an inch of rain in the last two months, the wildflowers are growing and blooming like crazy. All sorts of colors and shapes.

Glenn and I sat on the pond bank for a little while and watched the fish and observed our goofy dog play like a puppy. We were visited by bunches of beautiful electric blue dragonflies. Some of them even sat on my shoulder and arms.

Harley had a good swim in the pond and the fish were gluttons. The water churned with their active feeding.

It was amazing to see how the pond has gone down due to the dryness. It's a two-acre pond and the water level has exposed three feet of the perimeter already. If things continue as they have over the last several weeks, it'll be down another foot in no time.
