Mid Week Musings 6

Yes, I know it’s Friday, but it’s been that kind of week.  For a short week, this has seemed like the longest few days. My brain is all jumbled   As a result, I feel a little scrambled and fried.   So here we go.

I got lost on my way to work today.  Seriously.    It’s not like it’s moved.   The last half of my commute is on a windy, rural highway that is prone to car accidents and landslides.  This morning a car accident shut it down.   We were rerouted and that’s where things went screwy.  It was like follow the leader through the rural side roads and we chose the wrong leader.   Combine that with heavy fog and I had no idea which way was up.  Somehow we ended up making a giant loop and ended right back where I started.   Except I’d never come on the highway from that side so I didn’t immediately recognize it.   I was so freakin’ confused.

We’re getting a Little Ceaser’s in town.  Why is this a problem?  I believe I’ve mentioned I have a minor pizza addiction?  Seriously, most of the employees at my local Domino’s greet me by name.    I don’t even have to check in, I walk in they yell out how much longer I may have to wait.  🙂   So what’s the problem?  This Little Ceaser’s has a drive thru.  Drive thru pizza- say what?!

I’ve done pretty well on cutting way back on soda.    Now I only drink it when I go out or if I am stressed.   Getting lost in my backyard made this a soda day.  🙂

 

Coffee is a morning requirement though😃
 
I’m not a huge fan of Adele.  There I said it.  Hello actually drives me a little crazy.  But this spoof is freakin’ hilarious.  Except now every time I hear the song on the radio I get a craving for some French fries.  😝

I need to run 12 miles this weekend.  If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you know I have a serious mental block with 12.    Big time.  People are out there dropping 20 milers and I have troubles running 12 by myself.   And it’s supposed to pour on Saturday.  Well, maybe.  It keeps changing.   Crazy rain.

Speaking of rain- it rained so hard on Tuesday that branches came down in the parking lot.   I put on my shiny new rain coat and headed out to the clear the lot.  The jacket kept the top of me dry but the bottom of my dress was drenched and I discovered my boots won’t last much longer.   Water got in through where the sole meets the upper and for the second time in days my feet were drenched.

  
I watch all sorts of tv but I’ve never been a fan of anything zombie.   Until Sunday.    I was trolling Netflix for something to watch and somehow I landed on Z Nation.   It has gotten me through 20+ miles on the bike this week so it can’t be that bad right?

All right, think that’s enough rambling for one post.  Happy Friday!!!

Ever been so turned around in a familiar area that you got lost?

What are you watching lately?

  1. I actually don’t really like “Hello” but “When We Were Young” I think is much better!

    I didn’t get lost, but I got confused coming back from a run the other morning. I guess I was just tired and for some reason my street did not look like My street! I have no idea how that even happens, so I completely feel your embarrassment and pain. I really like Empire. I’m excited for when it comes back on TV in a few weeks.

    1. The highway intersection looked like a completely different town- I was so confused! I’ve never watched Empire but have heard good things about it. I will have to see if it’s on Netflix. 🙂

    It’s not a 12 mile run, it’s a simple 6 mile run ..((twice))! You got this! I am currently addicted to the Amazing Race. Doesn’t help that Hulu has 22+ seasons to watch! I may never be done..

    1. I may have to try thinking about it like 2 6 mile runs, that may help, thanks! 22 seasons?! I knew it had been on for a long time but not that long!

    Oh, I’ve totally gotten lost in what should be familiar territory… same reason, rerouting traffic and approaching places from different directions threw me way off! I don’t think I’ve ever had Little Cesear’s pizza but I always liked the little cartoon mascot when I was a kid 🙂 We just finished watching Making a Murderer (which included lots of swearing and yelling at the TV on my part) and I’m also making my way through Call the Midwife, though I’m pretty behind!

    1. I was so freakin’ confused! I even tried using Siri to get me out but he didn’t understand what I was asking. 🙂 I haven’t had Little Ceaser’s in years so it may be better in memories- who knows? Everyone seems to be obsessed with Making a Murderer. I admit I like the crime shows when they are scripted more than real life stories. I like living in my bubble- haha!

  7. LOL, if we were FB friends you’d know that Mr. T is an assistant manager at Little Caesars, and there for awhile, we had pizza all of the time… and nope, never got tired of it!

    1. Oh my goodness- pizza all the time!! I could never work at a pizza place- well maybe I could- I can barely tolerate Taco Bell now and it’s been 6 years since I worked there. 🙂 But that’s good to know that the pizza is good! I still haven’t tried it yet.
