It finally dawned on me to buy an air purifier. Took me a year and a half but suddenly I gained some smarts! My old apartment was not only bigger but was near the top floor. I could keep windows open often and didn’t have to worry about scary individuals trying to get in and steal Simon.
Now that I am on the ground floor, I barely open my windows. I keep my fans on to at least help with some air movement but I have my doubts this is helping much. You know how people say you don’t realize the smell of your own house? I’m kind of paranoid about this. I burn candles as much as possible but with a small living space and a cat I’m assuming I could do better in the smelly good department.
Off to amazon! I swear, amazon prime is the greatest thing ever! Since I hate going to the grocery store with a *fiery passion this allows me to pick up those pesky items rather than trudging to the store where I am likely to find other things to purchase. Although I do order a lot from amazon, 1) with prime I don’t have to pay shipping 2) it gets here in TWO DAYS and 3) when I see the price of things I find I am much more mindful of the money I am spending. Typically, I’ll wait to order it to make sure I want to spend the money. I highly recommend it and I even hate paying subscription fees!
I found two that I really liked – one mini ionizer (super cute!) and one regular. I tried to figure out which one is better since they are both approximately $50. Or do I want both? Again, my apartment is barely 500 sq feet so do I need both? Or if I buy just one, will that be enough to take care of any cat litter box odors if it isn’t in the same room? Please help me purchase!! Just think – you can (sort of) spend money and it’s not even your own!
Other than this thrilling business, I didn’t run yesterday. My lungs are a bit crabby right now with a cough. Two rest days in a row should help the healing. In Spirit of the Marathon Deena Kastor was saying how she runs an average of 140 miles per week! NUTZO! I did the math – with a calculator of course and it’s 20 miles per day. This doesn’t allot for a rest day but I have no idea if she takes one every week. My goal for the month of Nov is 180, which will be my highest ever, at least since I started tracking a few years ago. I realize she is a pro athlete but somewhere along the line I didn’t compute how many miles in a week it would take to achieve this. It’s amazing!
*I’m not a total brat in regards to not wanting to go to the grocery store. For 9 years part of my job was to go to the grocery store 2-3 times per week. It’s just not my favorite thing…
**Any advice on the air purifier?!
