The Doctor will not see you now

I love sitting in the lazy boy working while the doggies sleep beside me on the sofa and Woody falls asleep on my lap.  Yeah, I know that I probably should refrain from touching and holding him too much but he’s just so damn cute.

Remember how I complained about the 96 degree temperature we had on Tuesday?  Well, maybe I should have kept my mouth shut because yesterday’s it was 98 degrees and it seemed like a punishment for all my bitching so I’m keeping my mouth shut today.  Besides, I’m still running so as long as my legs aren’t broken, I will not complain.

Fine, hot as hades

In my quest to find out why the hell my eye continues to twitch, I recently read an article about magnesium deficiency and how people with celiac disease and gluten sensitivities are more prone to it, hmmmmm. Interesting.

So, I don’t know if it will help or not but since I’m not really willing to ingest Xanax, as suggested by my doctor, I figure trying magnesium supplements for a few weeks couldn’t hurt me either.  And running.  Running cures everything.  EVERYTHING!

Gone Running

The Doctor can’t see you now, she’s gone running, with a lab, a dachshund and a woodpecker.  Oh my.

How does your day look so far?  Hot or Cold?  Sun or Snow?

Retirement Tennis sounds sexy to me

My Mom is here!  And she has offered to help me take some photos so that I can show you a great product I have a limited discount for.  I’m going to show you those tomorrow.  Let’s hope they turn out.  My Mom is not exactly Herb Ritts.  Unless you’re a family member you probably don’t get that joke to put that into perspective, if you said to my mom, hey could you take a picture of me in front of the Grand Canyon?  She would take the picture and you might get a picture of a cloud and a tiny bit of your cowlick.  Yeah, she’s that good.  But hey, we got all night and I got lot’s of space on the iPhone so stay tuned for that big discount tomorrow.

Over the weekend I went running on the Legacy Trail in Nokomis through Osprey to Sarasota.  It’s a beautiful trail and I will never get tired of running it.  Never.  I’ve seen bobcats and a panther and alligators and all kinds of wildlife not to mention all the runners, walkers and bikers I’ve met.

During my long run this weekend there was a group of bikers and runners headed up by an older couple wearing some official looking gear, carrying all kinds of official looking equipment.  As I ran by the gentleman said to me, ‘great form, keep it up’.  It really made my day and seem to make the miles fly by.  That’s one of the reasons I love running down there.  It’s also one of the reasons that MacGyver and I eventually plan to retire there.  It’s one of a ton of things to do.  If you happen to see that gentleman at the eye doctor this week, tell him I said thanks.

Anyway, MacGyver and I were talking the other night and I said I was really excited about the day we retire and we can actually run and bike and swim and fish and anything else we want to do without having to worry about a schedule.  He agreed.  We also agree that we’ve chosen the perfect area to retire to.  And as it we needed any proof at all, the news came on and we saw this:

So see, we could also play tennis!

Where do plan to retire to?

Thursday things Organizing and the Eggcorsist.

Over the weekend MacGyver and I went to a few neighborhood garage sales because that’s just what we do.  Anyways, we came upon this lady just standing in the street holding a baby and looking quite perplexed.  At first I was a little worried about her but then when I asked her if she was okay, she said that she was and that she was just confused.  I asked her why and she just pointed an said she had no idea how to pose her Granddaughter.

That was the point I looked over and saw the scariest lawn of my life.

Disturbing!

Somebunny threw up Easter eggs all over the yard!  What the Hell happened?  They need an Eggcorsist.  I mean seriously, who decorates like that?  It was crazy.  They had thousands of eggs everywhere and at least 10 blown up bunnies and super sized eggs.  It scared me.

When we got in the car and drove off MacGyver said I’m glad you only decorate like that at Christmas.

What?  I do no such thing!

And then MacGyver said that six Christmas trees and 10,000 twinkle lights may just be a bit over the top and that’s all he was saying but for the record, I don’t go all that crazy at Christmas time and I hardly decorate at all for any other holidays so there!

Anywho….

Have you been buying a ton of Easter candy?  Surprisingly I’ve been really good this year.  I’ve only purchased Reeses peanut butter eggs but that’s a staple.   MacGyver asked me to get Peeps one day but I refused.

Don’t be a Monster!

In honor of Easter and sibling’s day which was Monday and my recent trip to Tennessee and one of my favorite things, bunny ears, here’s a couple of pictures from my Tennessee trip.  (Happy sibling’s day to my brother too!)

Me and Angie

MacGyver took this picture and I had no idea that my sister was doing this.

He immediately took a second picture.

Me and Ang

And she had no idea that I was doing this, but isn’t it funny how sisters think alike.

Before we went to Tennessee MacGyver and I bought new flooring for our Den/Tv/Theatre/hangout room.  Currently it has some stanky green carpet, and I hate it.  The dogs love it, hence the reason I hate it.  It collects dog hair and it smells.  I am constantly cleaning it and it consumes far too much of my time.

In fact in keeping with same theme I’ve been purging many things in my house that take up too much time, i.e. dust bunny nic knacks, and my mom is coming to town soon and we’ll be having a major garage sale.  Somebody is going to make out like a bandit because I’m getting too damn lazy to clean.  The man cave is chock full of my shit.

Last night I had to clean out the den so we could begin the task of replacing the flooring which meant I had to clean out my she shed to have a place to store stuff.  That’s when I located some things I didn’t know I had, Easter decorations, and I hauled them straight up to the garage sale pile.

Easter Decorations

And then I turned around and came right back downstairs because there was no room.  I’ll put them up for sale right after Easter.  Or after I finish the 12 step in Over Decorators Anonymous.

Do you tend to overdecorate?
