It occurred to me that I might have a problem this weekend when I realized that I yell for MacGyver’s assistance anytime I need to get something that would require me having to use a stool or a ladder but I will scale a tree taller than my house all by myself to put up Christmas lights. Every time.
I got about 15 feet up the tree and I was trimming like a boss until I missed a step and fell into the pond. I know, I am graceful like that. It wouldn’t have been so bad except that it was freezing cold out, probably like 50 degrees. I nearly died. Okay not died but I did get very cold and I had to change clothes.
After all that I didn’t feel like working on the pond anymore but I did manage to finish the lanai.
Since it was so cold this weekend I got to do something I’ve been waiting almost a year to do. Last year late in winter MacGyver and I had gone to a pet store and I happened to find a clearance section full of some great things. So Sunday morning when I woke up I decided it was time to take advantage of the cool weather and show off my clearance finds.Do they make chucks in buffalo plaid? If they do I need them.
I spent a lot of the weekend in running clothes. I ran 11 miles on Saturday. You may not have noticed and I really haven’t been all that vocal about it but I’ve been increasing my long runs by a mile every week in the hopes that I’ll be ready to run a half marathon in the next month or so. I think I’m pretty close. I just want to be confident that I can run a full half without suffering from a migraine hence the reason I’m trying to get to 13 or 14 miles before I commit to a race.
There is a method to my madness. My migraines are debilitating and since I don’t take the evil Topiramate anymore, I have to really monitor everything I do. It’s really just that simple but complicated at the same time. I have to make sure I monitor everything from my shoes to my salt tablets but it’s working and that’s all that really matters right?
I felt fine after Saturday’s run so I ran 6 more on Sunday and that brought my total to 17 for the weekend and 32 for the week, 37 if you count the miles I walked.
I only ventured out once other than running and that was for a quick trip to Walmart of Sunday and then late last night MacGyver and I got all settled in and watched The Walking Dead. I have this habit of spinning my Motiv ring around on my finger when I’m nervous or anxious and believe me when I tell you that last nights episode definitely made me anxious. I won’t spoil it for you but when I was watching it and went to spin my ring, that’s when I noticed that tragedy had struck.
My Motiv ring is gone. Forever. MacGyver and I looked everywhere but we couldn’t find it and I am just heartbroken. I plan on heading outside today to look again, probably at lunch time but I’m not holding out much hope. Wish me luck!
Have you ever lost a ring? (I’ve lost many…)
Did you watch The Walking Dead?
