We slept through the night which is nice because James usually gets up and flops around like a fish in the middle of the night sometimes and I want to wring his neck.
We both got up around 7:00. James took a shower and I went to the basement to watch some Saved by the Bell on TBS and do some cardio on the elliptical. I haven't worked out at all in ages. I've been sick for quite some time this winter and I didn't really feel up to it before yesterday. I could only do about 10 minutes which I know sucks but I figure I'll be able to ramp it up. I'll do 15 minutes tonight and 20 the next day 25 the next and so on... There was a time in my life where I'd work out for an hour and do 500 crunches daily. I wonder if I'll ever be able to do that again. This was of course when I wasn't working and had the luxury of time on my hands!
I took a shower and got dressed and came downstairs to find that James had prepared bacon-egg and cheese muffin sandwiches. We each had 1.5. Phew! Boy am I ever glad I spent those 10 minutes on the elliptical. HAH!
We then carpooled into work. Well, I went into work and James went to the Southway Inn for a leadership course he's taking through work. He's there today as well. I can't remember if it's on tomorrow as well or not... hmmmm...
Work was ok same old same old. We all attended a webinar during lunch and we feasted on some Gabriel's pizza - only the best pizza in Ottawa! So that was a bonus.
James picked me up from work around 4:30 and we went to Carleton for our French course at 5:30.
Class was pretty good. It's always such a hassle to go after 8 hours of work to a class but once you're there it's fun and somewhat entertaining because we all suck and we all try and speak French and make fools of ourselves. It's great! In all fairness though I've noticed a definite improvement in both my and James' French so I'm pleased that we're actually getting something out of it. Every week someone will do a presentation on a topic related to French culture. So it could be pretty much anything. This week we had presentations on French Cinema, the cemetary in Paris where Jim Morrison's tomb is and Andre Boisclair who leads the Quebec provincial party is young, hot, homosexual and is fond of cocaine... oh did I mention he's hot! James did his presentation on the French national soccer team. I'll be doing mine on Asterix. I think mine is on the 15th. Crap is that next week?!?! Nevermind, I see I have 2 more weeks, phew!
After the presentation in French class we practiced our dialogue. We went through a conversation talking about what our favourite restaurants are. This was such a bad idea as we were both so hungry at this point. After class James convinced me we absolutely had to go to Kanata so we could have ribs at Baton Rouge. In his defence though I didn't put up that much of a fight. So we both had a dinner of ribs and all-dressed baked potato (mmmm sooo good!) at Baton Rouge for dinner at around 9:00 PM. In hindsight this was not such a good idea since it was quite a late dinner and I think was the reason why we both had trouble sleeping last night.
After dinner we came home watched some HGTV and James fell asleep on my lap so I woke him up and we went upstairs, brushed our teeth and went to bed.
So I guess that wraps up our Wednesday. Not super exciting but somewhat eventful.
