Since I have no long run scheduled for tomorrow, I’m left with some time on my hands. Granted, I could spend my time doing housework (it’s currently impossible to walk across the playroom and the dining room rug crunches when you step on it) or reading (I have a HUGE pile of books and magazines to read right now) or even just relaxing. Instead, I have a big day of shopping planned.
Beer Geek and I are buying a Mac tomorrow. I am SO excited! We’ve been discussing this for years and he’s finally willing to take the plunge. While there, I hope to join the rest of modern society and also get an ipod. I’m not planning to run with it, but I want to put a docking station in the kitchen so I can listen to music when I’m cooking. (What? You thought I’d change my running style? Maybe someday.)
Then I get to shop for my second least favorite thing: shorts (my least favorite, as you might guess, is a bathing suit.) I have two sets of shorts right now: the ones I bought after Jones was born that are now 7 years old and falling apart from so much use and the ones I bought after Shoo was born that, well, don’t fit. I was super skinny after Shoo was born, thanks to multiple food allergies on his part that had my diet down to four foods at one point. I’m back to my normal weight, plus despite the fact that I run long distances, my thigh muscles are more similar in size and shape to a sprinter, ie pretty darn bulky. I’m just hoping that there are some new styles out this year. Last year’s options were bermudas (by the time those fit my thighs, I can fit two of me in the waist band) and short shorts (um, I’m a late 30s mom of two. I’m sooo NOT wearing short shorts). So, wish me luck as we are going to Key West in April, so I absolutely need to find some.
After the torture, I mean, short shopping, I’m planning to finish my purchases for the beer basket. I have the 12 beers and a few cool trinkets, so I just need to find a basket and a few things to pull it all together. I’ll post a picture and a list of the contents once I get it all pulled together.
Oh, and while I’m throwing money around, I’m also planning to throw some towards the Arthritis Society in support of Reese’s Run!
