Too early for u-turns

by Meghann on July 20, 2012

You know it’s going to be a long day when you accidentally drive to the air force base on the way to swim practice at 6:30 in the morning. Whoops.

In my defense, the base was only about 1/2 a mile from the pool and I simply kept going straight instead of making my usual right turn. However, it was a little scary when I came up on a huge security gate area that was surrounded by armored cars. The traffic started closing in on me and I kept thinking “where am I?!” I knew there was a base in Tampa, but I had never actually driven to it. Well, now I can say that I have. It’s supposed to be a beautiful base, too bad I paid my visit while the skies were still dark.

Luckily the guards were really nice and let me do a u-turn out of the place. Once I turned around, I was able to get my bearings and eventually passed the place I was supposed to turn again. One more u-turn later… I made it to the pool.

There were just 3 of us today, so the workout was kept pretty easy.

12 x 100’s? Yawn. It was a lot of back and forth mixed with a lot of waiting. Not my favorite workout to date.

I ended up having to skip the cool down. Derek is having some repair work done on his car over the weekend, and it was my job to pick him up from the car place and take him to work. His car won’t be ready until Monday, so we will be a one-car family through the weekend. We actually planned it this way because we knew it would be easier to coordinate our schedules over the weekend, rather than the work week. We tend to mostly stick together and just drive over car over the weekends anyways, so it really just works out better this way.

I was starving by the time I arrived home, and more than ready for breakfast.


This morning’s pick was a bowl of yogurt, granola, and 1/2 a mango. Delish.


  • plain yogurt: $0.60 ($3.39 for container)
  • mango: $0.50 ($1 each)
  • granola: $0.40 ($2.50 for box)
  • Total: $1.50

One last note…

My heart and thoughts are with everyone affected by the shooting in Colorado last night. What possesses someone to take others’ lives so cruelly like that, I’ll never know. Please remember to hug your loved ones tonight and remind them how much you love and appreciate them, you never know what tomorrow might bring.
