Happy Saturday! This post is publishing WAY before I get up today. It’s been a long hard week and I’m sleeping in. Anyways, I’m joining up with my friends Deborah, Coco, and Lynda for a virtual coffee date.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that this week was a week of crazy ups and downs. My kids finally went back to school after missing 8! school days (ok, one was a planned teacher work day). I love my children, but it was great to finally get back to a routine. We went a bit feral while they were home – staying up past midnight and sleeping until noon. Yeah, it was good to get back on track.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you one of the downs of the week was that Ella (the cat) stopped eating on Monday and on Wednesday the vet found a mass in her stomach that is likely cancer. Other signs indicated it had been affecting her insides for a while, but she did an amazing job hiding it from us. I was so afraid that this update was going to be about losing her, but yesterday, after I spent many hours rubbing wet cat food on her lips to get her interested in food, she started eating again. She’s eating Baby Cat food (not kitten food, mind you, but Royal Canin Baby Cat dry food designed for kittens transitioning to solid food), but I’m just happy she’s eating.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that one of the ups of the week was meeting Deb for lunch. I haven’t been able to run with MRTT much since fall, so we don’t see each other often. It was great to chat with her, but sorry no pictures – my red eyes from all the crying I did last week did not need to be immortalized. We had a nice time and the salad I had at Mad Fox Brewpub was just amazing! I can’t wait until I go there and can have it again LOL, although I joked with the owner that every time I like something they take it off the menu. Apparently if I like it, no one else does.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I’m excited to be a Feetures Socks Ambassador! I love love love their socks, especially the wool ones in the winter. I can’t wait to represent them at races and on social media. This was definitely one of the high points of a less than stellar week.
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that Nektar Naturals is doing the sweetest thing (see how I did that LOL) for Valentine’s Day. You should head on over and send a sweet to your sweet – you give them the address and a some sentiments to include and they send your Valentine a cute note and a small packet of Nektar Honey Crystals. It’s FREE so do it! (And I’ve been given some of their honey crystals and they are tasty!)
If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that while I didn’t run much last week because of the cat, I did manage to get out one night for a run and it was warm enough for a skirt. Gotta love it when it’s nice enough to have bare legs in February. Thankfully? I balanced my lack of running with a lack of eating and lost 5 pounds last week. I wouldn’t recommend that particular diet though.
Finally, if we were having coffee, I’d tell you that the Tuesdays on the Run topic for this week is “scenes from your run”. Show me the beautiful places (or mundane places) you run. Perhaps needing to share some pictures with you all will actually get me back out there running.
So, we’ll see you there, right???
Happy Saturday! What would you share with me if we were having coffee???
