i should be sleeping

Its after midnight and I should be sleeping. But its a full blue moon and my brain is whirling. Today was busy and somewhat annoying but it ended better than it began I guess. I started off weepy and weird and missing a friend and worrying about some very serious family health issues. I’m still all of those things but I don’t have control over … Continue reading i should be sleeping

Yesterday’s workout

Because you care. I decided to give the foot another day off. Plus, I’m scared I will go crazy if I run on it and it acts ugly so I’m delaying expected disappointment. Such a great attitude I have, I know. Anyway, the gym was good for me as it always is. Mind clearing and blood pumping and stress reducing. Good stuff! Tonight…an attempted run … Continue reading Yesterday’s workout

cue annie lenoxx broken glass song

Because I win at life lately, I just spilled a bunch of tea inside the refrigerator and on the floor. Even better, I dropped a glass and it shattered into a million shards of feet shredding danger bits all over the tile floor. I vacuumed but shoes would be a good idea in the kitchen until I can mop and re-vacuum tomorrow. Thought you should … Continue reading cue annie lenoxx broken glass song

training and reading happened, friday plans

Not feeling quite so lame for hitting the snooze button and missing my run this morning because I just did it. Day 1 complete. I’m a hot sweating stinky mess of a girl right now. My training program called for 4 min running/1 min walking for a total of 45 min, plus warm up and cool down. That netted me 3.52 miles. Done and done. … Continue reading training and reading happened, friday plans

1/2 mary and battles with wacky nuts

In a few months I’ll be “running” in my second half marathon. I use the word running loosely because I walked the majority of the one last year and while I plan to run most of this second one, I am not above walking parts of it as well. Ain’t no shame in walking my friends. I have a training plan worked out and will … Continue reading 1/2 mary and battles with wacky nuts

so it goes on the 4th of July

It rained today. I don’t mean it rained for an hour or two, it rained ALL dang day. We didn’t really have solid plans for the 4th anyway but if we had planned on outdoor activities, they weren’t happening. So we ventured to a lazy late breakfast at one of my favorite places that tries a little too hard to be reminiscent of Paris in … Continue reading so it goes on the 4th of July

time spent

Today was pretty great. Hubs was off work too so we took the kiddo to school and spent the day together. We went to the gym and got our sweat on, then rode the motorcycle to a monstrously large parking lot so he could give me riding lessons without endangering others, next was vegetarian sushi for lunch, sweet cece’s for dessert, capped off with a … Continue reading time spent

the latest

I’m more like Melancholy Melanie today rather than Crankypants McGhee. Progress people, it’s a slow thing sometimes. Memorial Day weekend turned out nice. I won’t recap the details but here’s a list of sorts…family walk on greenway, family cookout and subsequent soccer playing, trip to the zoo, puppet making and puppet show, gym, toy mini cooper driving, park, meeting new neighbors who turned out to … Continue reading the latest

I can’t make this stuff up

So now I have food poisoning or some sort of bacteria infection according to the doctor’s best guess. The night of The Stress Fracture Debacle I did the head in the toilet thing for a bit. I thought I had just stressed myself to the point of illness but then other things began to occur (I will spare  you the details) and The Accountant really … Continue reading I can’t make this stuff up

cheapy bleepy i sure am sleepy, plus other stuff

It occurred to me that I need to update my blogroll as some of the ones on the list are defunct, moved, or just plain out of date. That will go on my to-do list. Right after “give the cat a bath”. Meaning, don’t hold your breath, I really should do it but am feeling lazy. What I also am is very freakin’ sleepy. Crazy cool … Continue reading cheapy bleepy i sure am sleepy, plus other stuff

today was tuesday, and this means what?

I dunno what it means but here are some ramblings from my brain…. Sometimes I have trouble keeping my snarky, sarcastic and/or snide comments to myself.  Today was one of those days.  But I managed to keep my mouth shut and not get in trouble.  Sometimes that is just so hard to do.  I think some people would be surprised at what a smartypants I can be.  … Continue reading today was tuesday, and this means what?

namaste

I’ve gone and done it again.  I’ve joined the YMCA.  So you know what that means right?  Yep, it’s yoga time once again folks.  After what I felt was a pretty hard class last week I left feeling fairly pleased with myself and thinking “oh yeah, I got this”.  And then, the soreness hit me.  Like the proverbial ton of bricks.  Ouch-ee-waa-waa.  I’m fine now, it … Continue reading namaste
