Crotch Hands…

25 Aug

Oh gee whiz.  Stupid Garmin refuses to upload successfully to my laptop.  I’ve been trying since about 3:15pm.   

Up at 6:30 for work.  Wearing a watermelon tulip shirt, a green skirt from Urban Outfitters and Target white eyelet wedges.  I hate to iron but I had to iron this outfit — it was unavoidable.

 

Wicked Witch Way.  That’s where you’ll find Momma…

Like I said, work was slow; therefore, very boring…

Came home and my daughter had packed up everything and left for college.  So sad.  I know I have to focus on her happiness and let my selfishness go…

To help with my blues, started my run at approximately 1:40pm and completed 9.86 miles.  I was so rushed because my little guy had a doctor’s appointment and my middle son had a soccer game at 5pm. 

Bruce was bored.  Afterall, they didn’t have a TV in the examination room at the doctor’s for him to hook the Playstation up to.  Caught him touching the floor lamp.  Gross.  Yuck.  I immediately told him “hands off” because that’s what the doctor uses to look at ladies’ crotches.  Oh, he didn’t like that.  He didn’t like that I went there.   I told him I was trying to be effective and I knew he wouldn’t touch the lamp again if he associated it with something unspeakable.  He was still disgusted.

I made Bruce take a picture of me by the ear diagram.  NO reason, just because.  Brucee was not happy of having to take a picture of me because his greatest fear came true…the doctor walked in and B still had the camera in hand.  My poor son.  I’m weird, he’s not.

 

As we were walking to check out, Brucee took a shot of antibacterial soap.  He then proudly exclaimed, “No crotch hands for me”!  Awesome, this kid is awesome. 

My day ended nicely by seeing Roo Dog score a goal at his soccer game (along with another three attempts on goal). 

Bought new landline phones tonight (to replace the others destroyed by July 28th’s storm).  I seriously don’t think I can ever get rid of my home telephone.   We’ve been together forever.  I OWN that #.  NO ONE else can have it. 

RANDOM… Cannot wait to see the movie, “Our Idiot Brother”.  I love all movies but my favorites are comedies and horrors.

Struggled today…

21 Jun

Overall, I’m doing this blog to give myself incentive from yet another angle to keep up my running.  I want to increase my mileage and if all goes well, maybe do a 1/2 marathon.  It’s too soon to say if I could actually pull it off so I’m not getting my hopes up.   I know, I said no timed, organized races but I change my mind all the time.  Never say never and….Insane in da membrane…Crazy Insane, Got No Brain…

Anywho….Set my alarm for 5:30am and blew it off again.  That was my mistake and I’ll explain later.  Had to be to work at 8am.  Made an unsuspecting coworker take my picture…

I got a lot of strange looks from other coworkers.  What’s the big whoop?  What can I say?  I love my tulip shirt.  It’s an oldie but a goodie that I purchased last year.  I got my crackle high heals when I was in Mexico.  I won’t take a close-up picture of those because I’m in major need of a pedi. 

Didn’t make my usual oatmeal which is fine because I have a supply of Slimfast meal bars in my drawer which has a tiny warning on the box which says,  “Excess Consumption May Have A Laxative Effect.”  I don’t know about you but that warning scares the bejesus out of me.  I don’t overdo it with the bars but it still frightens me.

Okay, thought I’d share a little of my work cubicle with you.  I have a “Michigan Turd Burd” at my desk.   I bought it as a “secret santa” gift for a coworker who didn’t appreciate it.  I could tell she was going to toss it as soon as my back was turned so I offered to take it back.  The Burd and I have been together ever since (talking maybe 12 years?!).

He doesn’t smell.  They treated him with something.  When I bump him, he bobs. 

When I got home, I had great plans to run my block 2 times which would give me 7.2 miles.  I threw a bottle of water at the end of my driveway thinking I’d grab a drink after one lap and keep going.  Well, it was extremely humid and 83 degrees.  I ran one time around, drank a little water and took off for another lap.  I made it to the top of the hill and thought I was going to throw-up or faint so I turned around and finished with a total of 4 miles.   Disappointed.  I really need to do my run early when I know the days are going to be hot. 

Very svetty…

 Somebody needs to weed, eh?  My yard’s huge and that job would be mine. 

I signed up for a 6pm Good Form Running clinic at my favorite footwear and apparel store who specialize in running and walking.   I ran w/my shoes and barefoot while they videotaped.  In slow motion, they showed us both a 2004 race with Olympic runners and they showed us ourselves running about 20 yards.  It was interesting to see how I look when I run.  With time, I’m hoping to have better form as I don’t need any injuries.  I’m glad I went.  I’m signing up for the 2nd course that they offer. 

To finish up my night, watched a little Tosh.0 with the kiddies.  Not a good show for a 13 year old.  I should know better…
