This is one of those days…

The world was a beautiful place when I went to bed last night.

wonderful world

Let me back up a little and tell you why.  When we got home yesterday I received a package I had been waiting on and I was super excited to try it out in the morning.

Tyme Iron

Yep, I ordered the Tyme Iron and I could not wait to try it out but it would have to wait til morning.  So, after getting everything put away and spending some time with the family, I went to bed.

At precisely 3:45AM MacGyver woke me up because little Hank was puking on the side of the bed.  My side.

Oh boy

It wasn’t anything serious, he just ate too many jerky treats and his little tummy couldn’t take it.  It was contagious though because after I started cleaning it up, I threw up too.

I finally went back to bed at 4:15.  The alarm went off at 5:45 and I got up to get ready for a run.  I got Hank up to let him out to pee before getting ready and that’s when I realized it was pouring rain.  Literally pouring.

I took that as a sign and decided to go back to bed.  I didn’t realize that MacGyver was up and so he started talking to me.  I’m not fond of chattiness in the morning.  In case you wondered.

please shut up

So at 7AM I gave up and decided to get up and shower.  It was then that I remembered that I had the Tyme Iron and I got super excited again.  I couldn’t wait to try it out.  I quickly read the pamphlet that came with it and it seemed easy enough.  I also watched a quick little video just to make sure I understood how to use it.  Then I got down to business and started curling my hair.

bad hair

It’s going to be a bad hair day

I obviously missed something.  I’m a frizzy mess right now and I don’t even know how it happened.  I guess I need some more video tutorials.

I didn’t have time to fix it either because at precisely 8:40 this morning MacGyver reminded me we had to go to the accountants office to do our last quarter taxes.  Oh yay!

And that is how my day started.  It can only get better from here right?

Do you have the Tyme Iron?  If so, how do I use it?

Do you run when it’s pouring down rain?

Dirty thirty, are you gettin paid?

Hey hey hey.  It’s freakin cold here.  No, I’m talking cold.  When we woke up this morning MacGyver went to look at the outside thermometer and I asked what it said and he said, ‘dirty thirty’.

its cold

I’ve been waiting to use this meme forever!

I ran anyway because that’s how I do.  I ran six miles and MacGyver was all worried that I would get sick or something because he saw on the news that a woman who ran and was generally quite healthy just died from the flu.  He needn’t have worried about that.  I was perfectly fine running in the cold weather until some bitch ran a stop sign and almost hit me!

Crazy driver

Fortunately, I saw her and stopped just a few inches from her speeding car.  She didn’t even notice me.  Stupid woman.

Anywho, once I got home I heard about a new app that actually syncs with your fitness tracker data and pays you to work out.  Really.

It’s called sweatcoin.  I did a little research and it seems like unless you pay for the app your limited on the amount of sweatcoins you can earn each day but the coins add up and you can use them to purchase fitness related items, like fitness classes, fitness clothes or additional trackers.

I’m going to download it this afternoon but I’d like to hear from any of you who have tried it.

Do you use Sweatcoin?

What do you think about it?

What if I could die without these pills, then what people?

A few months ago my doctor switched my thyroid medication from Levothyroxine to Nature Throid.  The changes that happened with my body after the switch were remarkable.  My blood pressure normalized, I didn’t feel the need to take afternoon naps and I felt more like myself than I had in years.

OH MY GOD! This is what normal feels like!

There was just one problem.  When I went to the pharmacy to have the medication filled they informed me that there had been a shortage and they could only partially fill my order.  They explained that this was normal with some medications and that by the time I needed more they should have them in stock.  I left the pharmacy with enough medication for the next 7 weeks.

I ran out of them over the weekend.

oh shit

OH SHIT!

I called the pharmacy that I originally went to and placed the order on their automated system and they said I could pick them up that afternoon.  So, late yesterday I went to pick up the order.  The pharmacist couldn’t find them so he went to the back for at least 10 minutes and then came back up front with nothing in his hands and I just knew.  They didn’t have them.  There is obviously still a shortage.

what the hell

Isn’t that just my luck.  I finally find a medication that is natural and that works for me and that doesn’t cause side effects and then just like that, it’s gone.  The pharmacist recommended that I call other local pharmacies to see if anyone has it in stock.

One day and about 300 phone calls later, I found 73 pills this morning.  At two pills a day, that should last me for almost 5 weeks.

better than nothing

Yes, I guess it is.

Of course based on my experience thus far, I’ll have to pick these up and then continue to make calls every day until I run out.  Otherwise, I will probably never find them again.  Stupid thyroid.  What the heck would I do if I needed these pills to live?  #Frustrating

Do you take any medications daily?  Why?
