Week 51/ Vacation Week 2

And just like 16 days have passed.  For the first time, I feel like I need more time.  Mostly because I feel like I accomplished next to nothing.  Unless there are awards given for the number of Hallmark movies watched.   😛

In fact, since I was still sick most of this week, let’s bullet-ize this recap for expediency.  Is that a word? Bullet-ize?  Oh well, I’m using it anyways.

  • I slept… a lot.
  • Watched all the Hallmark Christmas movies…and Lifetime ones too.
  • I coughed a lot.
  • Finished all 11 seasons of Bones.  Ok, I did start this in the summer but still.
  • Watched all second season of Fuller House.
  • Still not a huge fan of food, well, sometimes I am and sometimes I’m not.
  • Rode the stationary bike once for a slow 6.5 miles.
  • Watched Battleship for the 100th time.  It’s my stress movie. More on that below.
  • Had my office Christmas party on Friday evening.  Filet Mignon, yum.
  • I managed a little bit of yoga to try and loosen up.  Ha!
  • Saw Rogue One on Thursday!!!!!!
  • I had an MRI on Friday and I freaked the frak out.   Like full on panic attack freak out. 
  • Went for one really short run on Saturday.  Man that was hard! My legs were so confused.
  • Finished most of my Christmas shopping on Sunday.  I think.  I feel like I bought nothing.  😢

So, yeah, a stellar week of vacation.    This didn’t serve to improve my opinion of vacations any.   Waking on Tuesday to the news that the company I work for is being sold was also not something I was expecting.   My boss texted me but even knowing, seeing the headline was not something I was prepared for.  The next few months will be interesting.    I’m going to put a smile on my face and do my best to be positive.  Fingers crossed.

2.5 miles was all I ran this week but that’s 2.5 miles more than last week.    That said, I can see I’m not going to be running any double digit long runs any time soon.   Which means Carlsbad in January might not be the best idea.  Boo.  Good thing I haven’t registered for it yet!  I’m not closing the door on it yet, but I think the smart thing would be to not run it.

How was your week?

Do you have a go to stress movie or show?

Am I the only one behind for Christmas?

  1. Will you be looking for a new job? Sheesh, right before the end of the year to get news like that…hope you feel better! You look super cute in your sunglasses if that helps 😀 ❤


    • I’m trying to remain optimistic right now, they’re a company from out of the area so there’s not a huge staff overlap. At least not customer facing like my position. But it’s definitely going to be an interesting month or so while we figure things out.
      Thank you, 🙂


  2. I love Bones! I watch reruns of it on my down time. 🙂 I did a clothing swap over the weekend, which was a blast and ran the San Diego Holiday Half. I froze my butt off that morning. Haha Have a great week!


    • I love Bones and had the idea to re-watch it over the summer but thought it would take me longer to finish! A clothing swap sounds like fun. Congrats on your PR from your race, that’s awesome! It has been so cold lately! And I still don’t feel great so I’ve turned into a big baby about the weather

      • Definitely understand being a baby about the weather. It has been really cold for my city and I find myself wanting to stay in bed a lot longer.


  3. Sorry to hear about your company. Most acquisitions require some employees to stick around so hopefully that works out for you.

    Hey vacation or not, you did a ton of stuff. You were more than busy. There will be plenty of time for running.


    • They are based down near LA so there’s no customer facing overlap so I’m trying to remain optimistic. Fingers crossed!
      I’ve decided December is going to be a very low mileage month. It is what it, right?
