Woke up at 8:50. The latest I could sleep in and still make breakfast before it closed at 9:00! Strategic move.
Grabbed some breakfast, took a shower, and just chilled in the hotel. We finally had a weather day!!! Light rain, low clouds at 2000 feet. Perfect! I finally had a day off...after flying more than 20 days in a row. I was pretty excited.
And I did absolutely nothing!!!! Which made it even better.
Matt finally woke up around 10:30, and we ended up goin' to Waffle House for lunch. I grabbed a bowl of chili for 3 bucks. Hard to beat. A couple of people came in with applications...not necessarily the most savvy of lookers, and it just made me think. I am just incredibly grateful to have this job. I have to be. It's such a blessing.
We came back to the hotel and had nothing but time on our hands. I checked out some stocks, moved some money around, and just enjoyed not being a in a tiny chair a mile above the earth. You have to learn to appreciate these times off. You never know when you'll get another.
Later in the afternoon, I worked out for about an hour. I finally weighed myself (in the fitness room) for the first time this season. I have already gained 10 pounds!!! In just a lil' over two months!!! It made working out that much easier. It's so easy to gain weight. GRR!!! I ran a couple of miles, did some push-ups, and powered up the stair climber. I honestly can't even remember the last time I sweated. Needless to say, it felt good. Incredibly painful. But good.
I went for the hot tub and then the pool...and then the hot tub again after my exercise.
For supper, Matt and I headed back over to IHOP. I managed to spend nearly $15 there. I wasn't too excited about that.
I read a little more in Sully's book...I'm enjoying it. Finally went to bed around 1:15 A.M. My three or four cups of sweet tea (with one AFTER 8:00!) were runnin' through my veins. Just before bed, though, I realized that I had transferred too much money over to my stocks...I wasn't goin' to have enough to pay my credit card due on Monday. I was so mad! A bone-headed move on my part. I called both my bank and the broker, but they were both closed. GRR!
Tomorrow is goin' to be another non-flying day. Forecast is for 2500 here...and overcast 1500 with rain down around Longview in our next project.
