I’m the neighborhood dealer, shhhhh

Earlier in the week I got an email from Brooks Running regarding a sale.  Obviously, it was a must read.  Let’s face it, anytime running clothes are on sale, you got my interest.

So I went to the Brook’s site and perused the sale items and this one thing caught my eye…

brooks jumper

Are you thinking what I’m thinking?

Who runs in a jumper???  No, really, who?  I was perplexed.  I’ve got quite a few jumpers and I like them but they’re a pain in the ass when you need to go to the bathroom.  I couldn’t imagine what would happen if I was out running in a jumper and I had to ‘go’.  How on Earth would I get home after I ripped the thing off in desperation.  I’d have to call MacGyver to come pick me up.  No, this would not work for me.

And then I noticed there were two reviews so I HAD to read them.  The first reviewer admitted she rarely worked out and basically this was just a casual outfit for her but she recommended it.  The second reviewer said she was an avid runner and wanted something to run to the gym but said the jumper didn’t look good on her and it was better for lounging.  Yet, both reviewers recommended it.  That is some serious customer loyalty Brooks, but at 66 bucks On Sale, I’ll pass.


Yesterday I had a few spare minutes so I decided it was a good time to paint our new bedroom doors. Since there were no rain clouds in the sky and it was a warm day I figured the front yard would be a good spot and they’d dry quickly. It was a bad idea.

First, it was balls hot and I couldn’t see straight with the sweat running down into my eyes which means I missed a few spots. Secondly, there were random bugs flying about. I didn’t realize how much random bugs like the color white but I can assure you, they do. What I can also assure you of is that every night when I lie in bed and stare at that door, the site of those bugs under my otherwise beautiful paint job is going to drive my OCD brain freaking insane.

And last but most certainly not least were the birds. Apparently the woodpecker and the peacock heard on the street that I was the bread and seed dealer so they came around to score. Even though I wasn’t holdin they didn’t want to leave without a fix. In case you didn’t know, seed withdrawal is a bitch.

My Peacock

Yo peacock, here’s some granola. Now, do me a solid and hit the street.

And since we’re on the subject of the bedroom project I should just go ahead and mention that so far, I’ve changed my mind on the décor at least 4 times. It’s caused quite a bit of a kerfuffle. MacGyver and I are sort of at a standoff until I make up my mind on the final details but every time I come up with an idea, he hems and haws about it and comes up with reasons why he doesn’t like my idea.

So I’ve decided to do the only reasonable thing. In order to get this project back on track somebody needs to take the bull by the horns and git er done. That’s why when MacGyver goes to work, I’m just gonna go right ahead and do it my way.

And with that, I’d better get busy.

Would you wear a jumper to go running?
Would you pay 66 dollars for a running jumper?
What are you doing this weekend?
