WTF Wednesday, What if you naturally fidget, then what?

What’s crack-a-lackin?  Only the best thing ever.  Will and Grace is coming back to TV.  I could just die.  I am probably far too excited for this but I just love this show.

And if Will and Grace wasn’t your thing, maybe Roseanne was.  It’s also coming back.  And the best part is, they’re bringing back the original Becky!

It was 96 degrees here yesterday.  I’m not sure if that was a record or anything for May but it was crazy hot.  I ran anyway because I’m crazy like that.  I didn’t run when it was 96 degree’s though.  I’m crazy, not stupid.  I don’t know how anyone can run when it’s anywhere near that temperature and the sun is beating down on you.  Not even dogs wanna run in that temperature!

Bitch, I said ain’t runnin!

When we were out on the boat over the weekend we were cruising past the Venetian walkway and it must have been around three in the afternoon and I looked over and saw a man and woman running out on the trail with no visible water on their person, none.  They looked to be running at a pretty good pace, if I had to guess I’d say at least an 8 minute mile, if not faster.

True

Maybe they were used to running in this weather but they should’ve had water.  Take a water bottle with you because the water fountains may not always work and an ounce of prevention goes a long way.

Am I the only person in the world who thinks fidget spinners are stupid?

I’m not changing my mind on this one.  These things are a colossal waste of time.  What if you’re a natural fidgeter?  If you have time to play with these things you need to get a job.  I don’t care if you ARE eight years old.

WTF it’s Wednesday!  Go drink some water and throw down the spinner.

Mothers Day Weekend

Woody is part of the family and just goes with the flow.  I’m not even kiddin you, it’s hilarious.  He just rides in the car like one of the family and he sits on the sofa watching TV like one of the gang.

‘Are you sleeping yet?’
‘No, are you?’

The only thing he hasn’t done yet is go on the boat and it’s only a matter of time.  When we go out somewhere and come back home I come in through the door and say hello to the dogs and they’re both barking and whining and Woody is chirping right along with them and when I say ‘Hi Woody’ he sings this little song, it’s adorable.

Woodpecker in a boat

We have this lamp that has a boat and an Ernest Hemmingway type character on it. MacGyver puts the bird in the boat to ‘train’ him.

Over the weekend I ran on the Legacy trail every day and on both Sunday and Monday morning I saw a hawk.  I almost brought it home too.

Hawk

I didn’t.  When it discovered a rabbit that had recently been hit by a car and drug it under a tree to save for dinner I knew that the hawk could fend for itself so I let it be.

We had a nice time in Nokomis and I love spending time down there but I have to say that I really missed the kid this year.  He called me Thursday night and we talked for quite a while and he texted me on Mother’s Day but I really, really miss him.  It’s been about 6 months since I’ve seen him so I think it’s about time for me to schedule a little trip soon.

MacGyver put in a new glass insert into the front door of the Nokomis house for me for Mother’s Day.  It’s really, very pretty and I love it.

This is the view from outside.

And this is the view from inside the house.

 

We spent most of Sunday on the boat and MacGyver smoked a ton of food so that his mom and I wouldn’t have to cook anything for the entire day which was very sweet.  We took the dogs out with us and headed toward the island that we went to last weekend.  The dogs didn’t like the beach part of the trip very much.  The waves were intense and poor Hank got pummeled in the first two minutes and promptly gave up and left the water, Boomer didn’t last much longer either.  They both hightailed it back to the boat.

Boomer

Boomer slept in the back in the shade for most of the ride home. He loves the wind in his hair, diva!

Hank the dachshund

Hank jumps around like a popcorn kernel.

They both preferred the boat ride to the beach or the water on this trip, and Hank would have been happy if we would have caught a fish, but unfortunately the fish weren’t biting.  We did see the most interesting thing I’ve seen on the water in quite some time and I made MacGyver stop so that I could get a picture of it.

Best thing seen on the end of a boat dock EVER!

I think they should have turned it into a tardis and then it would have been even cooler.

You could totally turn that into a tardis right?

We hung out with MacGyver’s parents until quite late on Sunday night so we decided to stay until Monday and then on Monday I got up and ran and MacGyver went to work on the boat.  We were supposed to leave around 1PM and come home so that I could get some work done that afternoon but did I mention that MacGyver went to work on the boat?  Yeah, so instead we left around 2:30ish.

Anywho, we’re home now and things are almost back to quasi normal.  As normal as a two dog, one woodpecker, MacGyver and a running girl household can be anyway.

How was your weekend?

5:38 new running shoes!

MacGyver tends to buy a lot of things at Dicks Sporting Goods mainly because it’s located a few miles from our house and Bass Pro Shops is over a half an hour away.  I don’t mind because he gets a lot of reward points and sometimes when he’s feeling especially nice, he lets me use them.

Earlier in the week Dick’s had a 15 dollars off 75 dollar sale plus free shipping so it was a prime opportunity.  We had to use both of our emails and I had to spend $42 but look what I got, two pairs!

Brooks Launch 4's

I have to admit I was a little disappointed that they didn’t have the new peacock collection.  I mean, don’t get me wrong, I am super happy to have the Launch 4’s and I would never have gotten them for that price anywhere else but the peacock collection is soooo pretty.

Brooks Peacocks

If anyone deserves to have running shoes with peacock designs it’s me!  Right?  I run with peacocks every day.  I should definitely have peacock designs on my shoes.  Maybe I should just go ahead and buy a pair but I’m waiting until I find them on sale.  In the meantime, I’ll just look at the real ones every morning.

Peacocks

I still have that twitch in my eye.  I had thought that maybe it had something to do with my thyroid medication so I stopped taking it for a few weeks.  That was not a smart thing to do.  Mainly because it caused my thyroid to crash hard core and it’s going to take me a few weeks to get it back to normal but also because the damn twitch is still there.  And despite all that, I still wake up every morning at 5:38AM without fail, no matter what.

So, last night I broke down and decided to try a half of one of the xanax pills the doctor gave me.  I was hoping it would help me relax and at least sleep.  MacGyver joked that maybe I would sleep in to 5:40.

Im wide awake

Nope.  5:38 on the dot.  Oh well, time to get the weekend started.

What time do you wake up in the morning?

Do you buy your shoes when you need them or do you buy them when they’re on sale?
