Good morning. Happy marathon Monday! In case you weren’t aware, this morning is the 121st running of the Boston Marathon. MacGyver and I are in Nokomis and had planned on taking the day off so he could take a day to fish and I could watch the marathon. In case you want to watch it live online, you can do so here.
We came down here on Friday night after a really long work week and on Saturday morning I got up early and went out for a long run.
After I finished running MacGyver wanted to take the boat over and test out the new motor but I had some things that had to be done around the house and I also had some work that had to be finished before I could begin the vacation so I stayed here and powered through everything. I don’t know why but for some reason we never have to do anything to the lawn here and yet it always looks great. The flowers and the plants are always healthy and bloom year after year with little to no maintenance.
Check out my lillies.
I started out with about 12 bulbs 3 years ago and this year we have about a hundred lillies! It’s insane and they’re gorgeous.
I get carried away working in the lawn down here, I just love it but that’s probably why I didn’t notice that I was feeling sort of sick, until much later, when MacGyver got back and he and I went out to get some groceries for Easter dinner.
Since we were smoking a ton of meats on the Traeger, MacGyver and I decided to grab some fast food for dinner but I wasn’t all that hungry so I just got some fries and I hardly ate them. Sometime later that night I woke up with the most sour of stomachs ever and my stomach decided to hand back everything I had given it for the last 48 hours! And it wasn’t pretty.
This wasn’t the first time. This has happened a few times this week. Apparently I am not fixed. I am still broken. It may have something to do with the little bit of sugar I let slip in over the last few weeks or the fact that I ingested a bit of gluten knowing I shouldn’t have or my doctor could be right and I could be lactose intolerant and it could have been the ice cream or yogurt on the few occasions that I had them but whatever it was, I am not completely fixed. Not just yet. And I didn’t run on Easter because I was very dehydrated.
Actually, I didn’t even get out of bed until 9:30.
And then we went to MacGyver’s parents to eat and spent the day enjoying the new motor.
I guess if you have to be sick to your stomach on Easter, then you might as well have a view like this:
Thankfully I’m feeling much better today and I was able to run six miles this morning and now I’m off to watch a marathon.
How did you spend your Easter Weekend?
