Day off yesterday! Super productive, too. I received my bridesmaid dress (thankfully). They attempted to deliver it on Friday but since I was at work, I missed the opportunity. In the past, this has been an issue--to receive deliveries--and so I planned my day knowing I would be home from 10-3, to ensure a dress being delivered to me. If only the delivery would have been at 9:30, 10:00, even 11:15. I could have still went to yoga had that happened. It arrived at 11:45. No yoga. Regardless, now I have the dress. I was starting to get worried since the wedding is in September. I ordered the dress in March. Now that I have it, I can relax. I texted my friend that I had it, too. She seemed relieved.
Anyways, no yoga. I did a strength training video instead. I considered going for a run but it was hot. My bike tires are flat and so a ride was out of the question. On that note, I made an appointment to have my bike tuned up. There is a clicking that occurs between gears when I am riding. It is somewhat annoying. I have a free tune up if I use it within the first 90 days of owning it. If only I could have managed to arrange it for today. I could ride to work today instead of driving.
I forgot to mention that I did not drive, anywhere, yesterday. It was delightful. Productive day continued. Dress arrived, video used, bike maintenance arranged, and I spoke to the physicians group that is handling my bill. What a process that is. I paid the ambulance bill, surgeon and e.r. visit. A month after the fact, I receive the balance of the bill from the surgeon. Confused since I thought I had taken care of that when I went in for my follow up visit. I search for a number to call to figure out what is due and when it is due. I leave messages at the hospital with their billing department on three separate occasions. Not once, do they call me back. Eventually, I call the surgeon's office and their receptionist is able to direct me to the accurate number.
From here, I have made three calls to ensure some sort of closure. Still waiting to hear back about what is due from me and how to proceed. I just want it to be over with.
Afterwards, I attempted to reschedule a day drinking venture with my friend, Kristina. We have meet for wine on a few occasions and this time, we were planning on taking the light rail into Phoenix and exploring a few of those bars. Unfortunately, she had to back out of our plan. Instead of staying home in the sweltering afternoon heat, I headed towards Mill to enjoy wine solo. It was Shari's birthday and I wanted to celebrate with her in spirit. A few glasses of wine later and I made my home. Freaking hot. I was hoping to make it to 9 pm before turning on my a/c. That hour took forever. I almost didn't make it. I guess I had forgotten how hot it can be from 6-9 pm since typically I am working or out with friends. Ridiculous heat. Seriously. It is effing stifling. One more month in my current place and then hopefully, some relief.
Yes, yesterday was productive. Today, I hope to figure out my camera, hit up a yoga class and go running with Jeff later. I need to start training for the marathon in Vegas. I think part of my problem is mental. I know it is hot and I have a difficult time running in the heat. Or, better yet, I have had a problem running in the immense heat. Not anymore. Today is a new day and I will enjoy running in 100+ heat.
