Obviously, I used the jumbo sized muffin tin. Normal sized muffins are so boring. I plan to run today, but I'm not out of the baking woods, yet. I already have a loaf of raisin bread in the oven as of 7am this morning. I have issues.
Saturday morning, since I wasn't planning on running, I scheduled an appointment with the Red Cross vampires. I used to give blood all the time when I wasn't endurance running. Running three miles the day after donating blood isn't a big deal. Trying to run 10 might kill you, though.
I showed up at 9am and was by far the youngest person in the place. I was also one of the only women there. I got a lot of strange looks. Apparently, if you're younger than 75, you aren't expected to show up to a blood drive until afternoon.
After donating, I grocery shopped and then headed to get my hair high lighted and cut. I asked my hair stylist about cutting it super short. I've been seeing the same stylist since college. She has helped me out with some emergency hair issues (like when I dyed my hair brown and then wanted to go back to my natural color and it turned orange...I'm not allowed to dye my hair on my own anymore), so I pretty much let her make all of my hair decisions.
She told me that curly hair should stay long in the summer to avoid becoming huge and frizzy with the humidity, but that she'll cut it all off for me in the fall. I'm excited and terrified.
Apparently, that was all of the excitement I could take for the day. When I came home, I immediately fell asleep on the couch and then dozed on and off for the rest of the day. I guess I'm not used to donating blood anymore because it completely wiped me out. Mike went to a friend's bbq while I slept. When I finally woke up and he was still gone, I took the opportunity to rent a chick flick (Safe Haven) and have a girly night with Bungee. It was glorious.
Sunday, Mike and I were up early and there were forecasts for rain later in the day, so we decided to have an early morning hike at the nearby trails.
How do you deal with stress?
