Tuesday Tangents and how not to get killed on a treadmill

So MacGyver and I put in a new floor in our home gym and we also bought some additional equipment and now we have all kinds of machines up there.   Then we ordered a mini split system so it’s not so hot up there.  Do you know what all that means?

It means I worked out 6 days last week.  Six days of weight training.  Don’t get me wrong, I would still rather be running but since I have 3 more weeks til I can do that I’m trying to develop the very good habit of weight training in the meantime.   Maybe it will last this time….

weights oh joyI wasn’t able to work out yesterday and believe it or not, I actually wanted to.  I would have rather done almost anything that what I was doing yesterday.

summonsIt really wasn’t all that bad though.  The parties ended up settling and I got to go home without serving and I’m good for another year.  YAY.

Did y’all see the video of the man running on the treadmill in the gym who almost got run over?

It kills me how she goes back to get in her car like, well this parking space sucks, I’m outta here.  And she looks like she has no concern at all for that man she almost killed.  Crazy. And where are her shoes?

This is precisely why I have a home gym and I run on my treadmill at home.  People are crazy y’all.

What’s the weirdest thing you’ve ever seen happen on a treadmill?

Have you ever had to serve jury duty?  I’ve done 7 tours so far.

Tuesday Tangents, man flu…oh boy

MacGyver woke up this morning feeling a little under the weather.  Well, actually, he came home yesterday feeling a little under the weather and continues to feel bad today.  It’s nothing major, he’s just a little run down and feels crappy but in man speak, he’s practically dying.

And I’m over here like,

Stay out of my space bitch

I was sitting here in my little bubble just minding my own business doing some data entry and watching the lovely Tom Payne on Kelly and Ryan.  I got up to go to the bathroom and came back literally 2 minutes later and the lovely Tom Payne had turned into a long bearded fat man with a bow and arrow in the middle of a field somewhere in the mid west.

What is this crap?  Why am I forced to watch hunting shows and gear heads all day?  I hope this is a one day thing or this illness of his may quickly turn fatal.

I went to the dollar store last night because well, I go there practically every day but that’s not the point, the point is I got the cutest little dish towel.

Who says you can’t find quality at the dollar tree, that right there is a gem.

It looks like we’re going to be spared from any major wind or rain from Hurricane Michael and I have to say, I’m extremely grateful.  There is nothing worse than picking up storm debris including trees that weigh a shit ton.  No thank you.

I am saying prayers for all of those who will be affected and I hope that if you are told to evacuate you’ll heed the warning and do so.  Things can be replaced but you only get one life so cherish it and get the hell out of dodge.

hurricane michael

The only good that has come from this hurricane is the temperature change.  It has been so much cooler the past few days.  I have been loving it.  I’ve even waited to run until quite a bit later in the morning and it wasn’t bad at all.  It’s still humid as all hell but it’s nicer.  I sure am looking forward to winter, all three days of it.

When you get sick are you a baby or a soldier?
