1. Yesterday, Shoo and I went to pick out the beer for the regional beer basket that I always donate to Jones’ school auction. I never remember to take a list of breweries with me and the individual beers are organized by type, not brewery or region. Add in a little help from Shoo and it was a bit frustrating. How did I handle it? By buying one of everything. Ok, not quite, but between buying a ton of Virginia, Maryland, and Pennsylvania beers and buying every beer that Shoo thought was pretty, I ended up with 36 beers instead of the 12 I went to get. Here are the 12 that I’m actually putting in the basket. The rest will eventually end up in my belly. ;o)
2. I was going to start sending out my stickers this morning. I pulled out the cards I bought specifically for that reason and discovered that the stickers are too big. We all know I’m horrible about putting stuff in the mail. Did I really need another reason for delay? This works to your benefit though – if you want one and haven’t told me, shoot me an email at mom2shoo at gmail.com. I’m hopeful that I’ll resolve the issue some time in 2011. ;o)
3. On Tuesday, I met my trainer at his gym. He had me doing lunges and step overs with the Bosu ball. Then he threw in planks with leg lifts while balancing with my elbows on the ball. Then we moved on to upper body, where he nearly killed me by making me do bench presses with my shoulders on a stability ball. The end result? My a$$ really wishes I lived in a ranch style house and I can’t lift my arms above my head. Yeah, it’s all good.
Today I’d really like to get in my long run since I’m racing on Saturday. Unfortunately, it’s pouring rain. I’m not sure I’m up for 12 miles in the rain. My current plan is to run as long as I can stand it outside and then finish up on the treadmill. Fun times ahead…
