Thursday - Short Run and US "Turkey Day"

I had a terrible sleep last night. I'm behind in some work I need to get done. I guess that was on my mind. The dog barking in the background for an hour didn't help the situation.

i tossed and turned for a while, then got up and did some work for about an hour and a half. The mistake I made was going back to bed and sleeping for a bit before I got up again to run. I felt really crappy when I woke up that time. The only good part was that I got some work done. I don't know if my customer will even notice, but at least I know it's done and it's right!

Lynne was already out running when I got up. She came back just as I was heading out the door.

I took my time running into San Antonia, and then kicked it up a notch on the way back. I had an average pace of 6:20 at the half way mark, but ended with a 6:03.

I can't wait to see how the pace changes when the chiropractor loosens up this hip next Monday.

We made an appointment on Monday with a realtor to show us some rental properties here. We were to meet at 10:00 am and he was to have a list of places to show us. We walked in his door at 9:59, and was met by one of his co-workers who explained that Jorge had car trouble but would be in later. He was going to take us out.

We looked at a place at the other side of town that, if we were interested in buying would have been great. It needed all new furniture and a paint job. The back garden was gorgeous. 2 bedrooms, 2 baths, bright big kitchen. $750.00 a month rent. Yup, if we were buying it would be great; but we;re not buying. We have no interest in buying furniture or decorating a rental property.

He took us over to another location, but the owner said we couldn't see it until after Dec 1. He drove us back to the office and told us Jorge was there now.

Yup, he was, but was finishing off a deal with some other clients whom I suspect were the reason he couldn't meet us. He kept us waiting for 15 minutes, (a life time in my world) and then explained he'd make some calls and set some appointments. (I thought that was what he was going to do between the time we first met him and then came back of our appointment.) Lynne and I left and did a little grocery shopping and went back in 30 minutes to meet him again.

He explained where a property was, what the unit number is,a and who we should meet in an hour or so.

We'll go look this afternoon but, I think Jorge translates from Spanish to English to be "Turkey". I guess, as it's Turkey Day in the US, we had to have some turkey in our life today too.

We're done with Jorge!
