Just a Little

Three miles is not much to add, but I talked the hubs into running with me, and it was the first run since being sick (I wanted to die sickness) and some puppy chow, but at least I made it. And I need to get back into the swing of things, swimsuit season is quickly approaching.

We looked for tickets to Australia and found some for around 800.00! Woo Hoo! Now we just have to book those, and then from there to Bali. Right now we are thinking it is going to be about $ 2,000 less than we originally thought! So excited, I wasn't sure it was really going to work out! I do love having the summers off!

Physically Impossible

I am a firm believer that it is an impossiblity to lose weight while puppy chow is in the house. Unless of course, you hate chocolate or are tragically allergic to peanuts.

Unfortunately for me, after I have snacked on half of the bag, I just cant see the point in going to the gym, as I don't believe 5 miles of running would equal out that kind of damage. So I decided to skip the workout, finish the bag, and start fresh tomorrow.

Whoever made this for us for valentines day, please resist the urge to be so sweet next year, a card will sufice!

I am feeling better. A mild cough after an outdoor run on Wednesday quickly turned into the flu or some other horrible virus. I have lived on the couch since Wednesday night. Literally. Not moving further than to check my temp and remedicate. I was meant to go to professional development on Friday but had to cancel. I was hoping by Saturday my 102 temp would be down and I would be able to run in my early morning race, but alas it was not meant to be and my husband and I instead at ice cream for dinner on the couch for Valentine's Day, which was actually my highlight of the weekend.

As I was still miserable last night, I called my boss to let her know I would be taking the day. I was so surprised when she seemed highly annoyed that I was calling in sick, which I have never done in four years, until now. I have always hated the catch up that comes with having a substitute.

So now I was sitting on the couch feeling miserable AND guilty for taking a day off work! I sat wondering if I was being a baby, and if I should just suck it up. But really more hurt that I was left feeling irresponsible for being sick.

The Newest Trend

I feel like a grandma! I have taken up crocheting. All for a good cause of course, I am making a beanie for my friend's baby shower. It is going to be an adorable soft white hat, with the cutest coral/pink flower on the side. I had been thinking of needing to do something while watching my weekly shows (I can't help it, I am addicted and my husband works till ten most nights), so I was not mindlessly sitting. Sewing needed a room, not a couch, so it was between knitting and crocheting. At this point I didnt even know how to spell the word "crochet", but MeeMa told me that knitting was harder, and took longer to fix a mistake, so I quickly decided which would be my new hobby. I had my mom show me how on Thursday, and all weekend I practiced my single stitch and double stitch. Okay, not all weekend. I did manage to see He's Just Not That Into You- which I thought was great. But I actually sat on the couch and crocheted while hanging out with friends. Friends that I had driven three hours to see for the weekend. I kept thinking I needed to put it down, and act my age, but I was obsessed with mastering it. I told my mom how I felt 80, and she informed me that it is a new trend, coming back in... hmmm my mom (who is a grandma) is telling me about the upcoming trends? of crocheting?? I think I need to get out more!
