Almost called this “Random Friday Sh$t”, but thought that was kind of rude.
Shoo has been biking a LOT lately. Like hours every day. He’s hella skinny, but suddenly he’s got QUADS like Whoa!
I’m not usually a TGIF kind of girl – I like the routine of weekdays, but I swear the last two weeks have been 500 days long. So glad it’s Friday and that the kids start school Tuesday.
Jones is still having a rough time with his throat. He’s tired of all the usual soft stuff and I’m running out of things to suggest. I’d like this to be over now. (I’m sure he’s even more tired of it.)
I hate fake sugar. I’d rather work off the real stuff. I bought a bunch of individual serving jellos and puddings for Jones’ recovery (something I don’t usually buy). Half of what I bought turned out to be sugar free, which was not what I wanted. Does no one eat real sugar anymore?
In less than a month, I have my two weekends of 10ks. Yesterday I tried and failed to run on my treadmill. I’m kind of over this running races undertrained thing.
Shoo’s Godfather and my
boss friend stayed with us for a few days. He and I spent part of each day working together on some projects. I’d forgotten how much I like working with talking to adults during the day. I will definitely have to ponder this during my “year of me” while I try to figure out what I want to be when I my kids grow up.
I never take off my watch or wedding ring. Ever. After 16+ years of wearing the ring, I have a permanent “skinny” spot on my finger. My engagement ring, on the other hand, spends most of its time on my dresser. I just can’t be trusted with expensive things.
I need at least an hour in the morning before I go running. Getting up at 4am to go for a 5am run does not appeal to me at all, so it’s unlikely I’ll ever become a morning runner.
When I was super poor in grad school, I refused to use the air conditioning. In the summer. In North Carolina. I told Beer Geek that if he wanted me to turn on the air when he visited, he had to pay the electric bill. We did and he did and surprise, he married me anyways.
Thanks to Katie for giving my a blog topic when I really have nothing to say since I’m not actually running (or anything else) right now!
