Three miles, THREE MILES, I might be a little excited…

You know what feels great?  Running three miles first thing in the morning without having to stop and without any pain.

This is actual footage of me running around Nokomis this morning….

Okay maybe it wasn’t me but I felt like that.  I have to remind myself not to get too excited though because I can’t just jump right back into running every day, so on the days that I do get to, it’s epic.

So, if you didn’t catch it, we’re in Nokomis.  We came down Sunday morning for Easter with family and we were going to go back to Clearwater tonight but it looks like we may be here for a few days.

Last Friday there was a rain storm and a lot of wind and the dead oak tree in our back yard decided it was time to drop a large limb, so it needs some tending to.  And MacGyver is putting a coating on the bottom of the boat and there are many other things to do as well.  Fortunately, I have a lot of work to do so here I am on the computer, you know, working.

I actually do have to get some work done but I wanted to pop in and post a quick hi and say that I hope you enjoyed the holiday.

What did you do this weekend?

WTF Wednesday, I’ve got a craft room…but it’s not called that

I like to start my Wednesday’s with a nice and hearty argument with my insurance company, just for shits and giggles.  Nothing ever gets accomplished but I just can’t let them think I’ve forgotten that they’re screwing around with me.  No sir, not me, I remind them.  Every. Wednesday. Morning.

insurance is ridicSerious.

Anywho…it’s not all insurance sucks and I’m sick of it and sick and tired of feeling like crap around here.  No, we’ve been gettin some shit done.

Example one.  We finished our gym.

our gymAnd I say finished as in MacGyver finished because personally if it were my space and my space alone, I’d have some awesome wall treatments and the mossy oak wall board would disappeared.  But it IS technically his man cave so there’s that.

Speaking of which, I was really a bit tired of not having my own go to space and MacGyver has an entire freaking garage plus a few outbuildings so I convinced him to share some of the upstairs garage with me.  Y’all have no idea just how hard that was but he finally caved and I got myself what I like to call,

The Hormone Hut

the craft room It’s everything and more.  I haven’t completely moved in yet but that’s only because we don’t have wifi up there but it’s coming soon and who knows I might take up permanent residence in the Garage.

Over the weekend my sister in law and my niece and nephew came to town for spring break.  We got to spend a few days with them before they headed down to Englewood to see the grandparents.  Here are a few pics from our adventures.

Clearwater Beach

I started walking this week and if all goes well I may be able to ease back into running next weekend.  I’m pretty excited about it and a bit nervous too.  I mean if it starts hurting again and I have to take more time off it will probably devastate me but I’ll deal with it.  I am antsy to get back out there though especially after watching the Boston Marathon on Monday.  It always motivates me.  It’s so inspiring.  Well there’s that and also I just ordered two new pairs of shoes, four new pairs of shorts an five new tanks in anticipation.  I might be a little excited….

Oh and WTF, here’s a random Squirrel pic for you…. just because:

sammy squirrelWhat’s the longest break from running you’ve ever had?

Do you have a craft room? 

Do you even craft?

Does anybody craft anymore?

Throw Back Thursday, not much has changed.

How’s about a little Throw Back Thursday for ya?

me

That’s me, back in the day.

I used to like to pull my dress up over my head and I wore my drool like a prized diamond necklace.  I was so cool.  How could I not be with that Mohawk/cowlick thingy. And those ears, spoiler alert, I never grew into them.  Surprisingly, not much has changed.

I still like to pull my dress up, only now I wear running shorts under it.  I still rock a Mohawk/cowlick thingy but I’ve learned how to use a lot of product to make it lay down.  I still drool better than pretty much every dog breed on the planet and I still wear some stylish kicks, only these days instead of Mary Jane’s, most days I’m in running shoes.

How much have you changed over the years?
