Happy Friday!

So that 2018 plan post is going to have to be next week. I had such big plans for it, wrote a great one in my head while on a run last week but can’t quite get it right in print.😛. Which is partly why I’ve been so quiet this week.

Another reason is that I’ve been freakin’ tired. Like in bed every night before 11:30 and dozing off in the chair well before that. For this night owl, that’s highly abnormal. But considering everybody and their brother I see has some kind of flu/ plague, I won’t complain about a little extra tiredness. Knocks on wood.

It took until Wednesday for me to be able to lift my left arm above neck level, so running has been a little absent. Kind of hard to run when you can’t put on a sports bra.😒

I think I like my bed but again, knocking on wood.  Then again, I’m stuck with this one so I better learn to like it!

I have lots of miles to make up this weekend, but I also have a 3 day weekend to look forward too, so yay!

What are you doing this weekend?

Happy Friday!

Let’s add sickness to injury, cuz’ that’s fun right?? Grrr.

One of my customers told me he’s disappointed in me because it’s almost the middle of December and my hair is still blonde. 😛  I told him I understood.  He’s probably not the only one.  Normally by now I would be on “Fall” color #2.  I’ve just gotten lazy.  That would require so much work.  I told him he would have to settle for me taking scissors to it on a random basis.  Like Tuesday.  I think it may be crooked right now.  😛

Winter has arrived in full force.  I can’t find my gloves.  Well, I found one.

Confession- I have not run in 7 days and today isn’t likely either.  And I had to count that on my fingers.  Double Grrrr.

But really, anything I have to complain about is pittance compared to the fires burning South of me.  Thomas- you can stop growing anytime now- ok? Thanks.  In all seriousness, my thoughts and prayers are with everyone effected and serious thanks to all the fire fighters and volunteers.      Oh and just to mention- the Thomas fire is about 150 miles south of me so other than some smoke in work town, everything is fine here.

That’s all for now- tell me something good!

The airline freak out edition.

Ok, freak out is too strong of a description.

People, I haven’t been on a plane since the 90’s, saying things have changed would be an understatement.  So can I pick your brains?

So, yeah no real tickets anymore?  I either print it at home or once I get to the airport?  That’s so odd.

Can you really not lock your luggage anymore?

And what’s with the no assigned seats?

I mean for crying out loud, the last time I flew it was on an airline called Ryan International and my flight number was 007.  Doesn’t even sound legit but I had an assigned seat.  I was also flying over the ocean so maybe that makes a difference who knows.

Can I take food? Like my drink mix and some gummy bears? Or is that a bad idea? A bottle of water?

Or medications? I can throw them all in a jumble in one container right? I don’t have to lug 4 pill bottles around with me do I?  

How about a tennis ball?  My back sure would appreciate it.  😛

I know nothing!

You should check in the day before? Well, that’s just stressful.  I don’t really have internet or printer access or work so that means I can’t until I get home.  Among everything else I need to do before leaving for the airport Friday morning.

Oh and that airport is still a good 3 hours away from here.

Am I missing anything?

Any helpful flying tips?

I need a vacation.  On a beach.  Swinging in a hammock.

Have I said that before?

Our little county boasted the hottest point of the country on Tuesday- 108.  Say what? No, just no.  The break room air is on the fritz so it’s a balmy 84* in there.  🤣

I think something about the heat- work town broke 100 a few times- made this week seem super long.  Either that or I was just feeling a little cranky.   I tried to just ignore it and move it but I was just blech.  I’m still not feeling great either and 2 more employees were down sick as well so maybe there’s just something going round.

Squeezing in 29 before Vegas is looking less likely.  Not only am I just tired but in truth my budget doesn’t really want to include a hotel right now.  Entry fee? Fine.  Hotel cost- not so much.  My race account is looking a little sad.  Plus I want to have money to have fun in Las Vegas.

Vegas!  It’s almost here!  How is that possible?  I’m not ready yet!  How do you mentally prepare for Las Vegas?  Help!😛

Heck, Halloween snuck up on me.  How is almost November?

How is it only Thursday?  I feel like it should already be Sunday.

Maybe it’s just been one of those weeks.

I went to a long overdue eye appointment this week.  Holy crap, I can see again!  I didn’t realize how much I was squinting until I didn’t have to anymore.   I can see clearly now the squint is gone, hehe.   And good lord, my eye sight is bad.  🤓

Lately, I’ve been on a Battlestar Galactica kick.  It’s my newest binge.  I watched it years ago but now thanks to Hulu, I’m rediscovering it all over again.  It holds up.   The commercials are about to drive me batty though.  The commercial free version is looking better.

I had this idea to make Las Vegas half marathon #30… except I am one short.  So half #29 anyone?  Any ideas?

I just went on a book buying spree on Thrift Books.  Did I need 4 new books?  Nah…but I love their prices!  Downside is they are coming from 4 different warehouses so now I just have to wait.  Wonder which one will show up first.

On the upshot, I’ve been dizzy spell free so far this week- knock on wood- and gotten in 2 runs.  Let’s keep it going.

How has your week been?
