Thursday things

Good Morning.  But is it really?  I guess maybe if I felt better it would be but I don’t therefore, everything sucks.  The flu is no joke and I’m sure those of you who have had it already know.  For those of you who haven’t, I will describe how it feels in memes.

the fluthe flu part 2the flu part 3Yep, that sums it up.

In his defense, MacGyver did make me lunch for the past two days but he must have forgotten to do the dishes afterward because I found them in the sink a few hours later.

He’s also been walking the dogs in the morning but he claims they don’t want to walk with him and that they just run right back into the house to me.

yeah sureI’m taking the appropriate measures to sterilize everything in my house so that MacGyver doesn’t catch this and we don’t give it back and forth to each other. I’m wiping down everything with lysol cleaner and bleach.  I’m even cleaning the cleaning things.

clean the cleanHopefully I am almost at the end of this thing because we’re expecting a cool down this weekend and the temperatures are going to be perfect for running and I am not going to miss it!

shalane flanaganBesides, Shalane Flanagan liked my comment on her instagram so we’re practically friends now and maybe she will come and run with me.

Anybody got any home remedies that will help knock this out any sooner, you know, in case Shalane calls?

Urban Exploring, because I need to know whats in that vacant house!

I am addicted to those urban exploring videos on Youtube.  Do you know what I’m talking about?  In these videos people visit abandoned properties and film what’s inside.  That sounds boring but it’s not.

I particularly like this one couple, Rick and Bekah, because they film everything they see and they mostly visit really old houses with great architecture.  The only thing that kills me is that Rick and Bekah are close to the kid’s age and in their commentary they refer to anything older than 30 years old as an antique.

It’s a good thing they haven’t seen me in one of those houses!

Well, in Rick and Bekah years anyway.

The kid is coming to visit this Saturday and he’ll be here for a week.  While he is here we are going to visit the cabin and take a drive down to West Palm.  I am searching all over the internet for something we can visit to do some urban exploring.  I’ve found a few places near the cabin, we just have to convince MacGyver it’s a good idea.

nope

Maybe if we show him some of the videos where they find old muscle cars still inside the garage…

Have you ever gone urban exploring?

Have you seen the videos?

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?
