I am a cranky old lady.

I was very, very cranky yesterday after I found out that the backup location for my workouts (main gym is closed this week) turned out not to have any shower facilities. I found this out after my fifteen-minute walk to get there, since they had not seen fit to note the lack of showers on the facility's website. (I couldn't even find a bathroom to change in; there was no changing room. Surely there must have been at least a toilet?  But who knows?)

It made me seriously cranky, did I mention? As in, as I walked home, sans workout and very frustrated, I muttered to myself with a lot of f-words. I really, really hate it when my time is wasted. Especially when I am paying money for gym facilities, and the people I am paying did not uphold their end of the bargain. Not only did they waste my time and my money, they wasted all the willpower I'd expended on trekking to a new location, which was not inconsiderable for me; I am doing okay with gym-going so long as I can keep to a routine, but it takes extra emotional effort to work out when that routine is broken.

I'm still angry about it. I sent them an angry email this morning, delineating exactly how they had wasted my time. I don't expect I'll get a refund for this week, but I bloody well better get an apologetic email.

When I got home, I did some exercises with my 15-pound dumbbells.  It wasn't enough, really, but it was something.  I could've saved myself an hour and done that in the first place.

I needed soothing, so I started reading Dead and Buried by Barbara Hambly - I've been saving the three most recent Benjamin January mysteries for just such an occasion.  I stayed up late reading it.

Now I just need to let go all that anger.  Breathing out....

That is annoying!

Hey, want to do Avengers later this week, or maybe next Monday?

Sometime this week would be better. It will be my third viewing...and I think the last. For now.

My gym isn't bad, though it is occasionally crowded.
