Today’s post is brought to you by the best cup of coffee I’ve made in weeks. And my strange shirt with deer on it. Oh and my tasty cookie with frosting that I had for breakfast.
I’ve had some interesting happenings this week and I figured saving them for one post was a good idea. That way it seems like I am whining less… hopefully? The other day Simon woke me up at 4:30 am. This is not unusual, however, he comes up and walks by my face and IT SMELLED BAD! Great. TMI but Simon is a long-haired kitty and at times poop gets stuck to his bum. I figured this was the issue and quickly got up and scrubbed his bum.
Later, I came home and found poop on the floor. I do feel sorry for the little guy though because about a 1/2 hour later he puked his guts out. Kitty stomach flu.
(Strange pic ahead!!!) Then my (male) co-workers and I were discussing birth and the placenta. We had a disagreement so I looked up placenta online. And I found this
I showed my other male co-worker and he said at first he thought it was a pastry teddy bear that just needed some powdered sugar. I took so much sick delight in telling him what it really was!
The other night I was attempting to balance my beautiful BLT (minus the L), with a can of pop while getting Simon’s toy for him. In slow motion my BLT hit the carpet. So sad! And no, I don’t do the 10 second rule on carpet especially with a pet. Plus there was the aforementioned poop issue!
There was some stress at work this week hence the cookie for breakfast. Wednesday, I got home and locked the door behind me. It was hermit time. Thursday when I got done at noon(!!), came home, took care of some things and left for a run. 10 big fatty miles! It was a great run that boosted my Dopey training confidence. It was also amazing weather 39* and dry. To not run would be slapping mama nature across the face!
To be honest, I was tempted to hang on the couch again but then two things happened: a) my friend texted and helped kick my butt in gear and b) I realized I didn’t like the underwear I was wearing so I would get to change it after running and then showering. I am absolutely serious.
It’s been a strange week. Monday was the two year mark of my mom’s passing. I wrote a post about it but not sure if I will ever hit publish. It’s easier this year than the last and I have conflicted feelings about this. I know healing is important and I am grateful for it but…
I’m looking forward to heading back to WA on Monday! I’m going to stock up on my favorite blend of coffee, smother my family in x’s and o’s, run and relax.
