Tuesday tangents

I just got back from walking the dogs and taking a five mile walk myself and now I’m sitting here watching the CSI van roll by.  Nothing tragic to report just another robbery in the neighborhood.  Another vehicle break in.

It’s so annoying to watch helplessly as my little neighborhood just repeatedly gets targeted over and over again and all we can do is just sit here like targets and it’s all because of the way we are zoned.  Just to give you a basic idea, my house is county but the house directly across the street is city and the house next door to it is county and the house directly behind it is city.  It’s a ridiculous mess and when a crime occurs such as a minor break in and the police are called, the 911 operator has no idea who to direct the call to and God forbid we have an emergency.  I’m so afraid that one day I’ll have a need to call for medical services and they won’t know who to dispatch and the outcome will be determined by the mere seconds it takes for them to decide….I shudder to think about it….

On the other hand we sort of have it made because we are zoned county so we can have small farm animals and fires, so there’s that.

I ended up with a migraine yesterday but not because I ran.  I know this because I have been keeping really good records and I hate that I have to do this but it’s become necessary, otherwise I wouldn’t know what went wrong because Topamax does help with migraines but for memory, not so much.  Anyhow, I took a peek at Saturday and Sundays diet notes and then I looked over what I drank and I was a little shocked to see that I didn’t drink very much at all.  Bad girl!

Migraine mystery solved.  Also, Topamax and too little water is a no no since it can cause kidney stones so I won’t be making that mistake again.  We learn from our mistakes right?  I wish I would have caught it earlier instead of losing half a day to a migraine but it wasn’t so bad.  I made a fort blanket in the media room with the dogs and we chilled out for a while. I feel all better today.

I’ve got a visitor coming tomorrow and so do the dogs….

How much water do you drink in a day?

  1. Ugh..migraine but at least you know it was not from running! I am trying so hard to drink more water…I drink all decaf drinks but mostly everything but water (decaf coffee, decaf tea, ice drinks….). Trying to get better but man, I do not love just plain water.

    • Me too, and I know that is a horrible horrible thing to say but I have always hated plain water. Always. Just never crave it. Even when I’m so dehydrated I just want to die, I crave juices. Crazy I know but that’s just me.

      • …and it’s me, too. Decaf black iced tea with a bit of sweetener tastes AMAZING after my workouts (especially running). I drink it right out of the carafe (it’s just me and Rick and he’s one of “those” that pretty much drinks one cup of coffee then water the rest of the day….ugh, drives me crazy. LOL)
