Rambling On 3

I really like these brain clearing posts.  Or maybe I’ve just been so scattered lately that they help me loosen some knots in my brain.    😛

Happy Friday!!!

I was supposed to run a half marathon this weekend but the Slacker in me forgot to take into account the extra time needed to get every runner security clearance to run on a army base.  Slacker fail.    But then with all the rain that is predicted to fall over the next 5 days maybe that was a good thing?

My road to work is open and it is freaking awesome.    It’s still under construction in the mornings and there are little mountains of dirt everywhere- they removed 20,000 tons of rock and dirt from the hillside!!- but it’s open!!  That was the longest month.  That longer drive was really getting to me.

So Monday was interesting.  I was on the street side of the building when I heard a loud noise outside.  We all looked outside to see what was going on.  A truck had just driven over a big dip in the street and looked to be dragging something under it.  Had it lost part of its engine?    It slowed then blew through the intersection without stopping.  By now we are all staring out the windows, then my coworker looked out the door and it all became clear.  Dude has slammed into her parked car, tore it up and continued driving!   He was dragging pieces of her car!  WTF dude?!

I went for a run on Tuesday.  Wasn’t the best but I mean come on…look at this…just awesome.


I redesigned my blog.   Still working out a few kinks.  But be honest, how do you read this?  Phone? Laptop?  WordPress app?  Bloglovin?

I’ve had to reassess my training for a few reasons.  More on that in my weekly recap but I think finally admitting it has lessen my stress level a bit.

It’s a 3 day weekend, woo hoo!!!!   Is it sad that I am looking forward to sleep the most?  Then running?

Do you have a 3 day weekend?  What are you doing?

How do you read blogs?

Ever observe something crazy?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The Slacker in the Sisterhood ~

It’s Monday!! And the first one back from vacation.   Note to self, never go back on a Monday.  Overall it wasn’t bad, one person called in sick but we made it work.  After work, we all hung out and ate pizza and decorated for Christmas.  We hung so many lights, going up and down the ladder felt like a workout.  There are garlands wrapped around the beams and lovely silver bells hanging down as well.   Snowflakes and lights fill the windows.  There is a little more to finish up tomorrow and then the tree comes on Friday!!  It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas!  Well as long as you don’t go outside, it was a lovely 70+ degrees today with a bright shining sun.

Today was also my mother’s birthday so I then rushed home with flowers for her.  She wanted a cake…oops. Tomorrow the plan is to take her and my pops to dinner for their birthdays (his is Wednesday).

There is a decided lack of running in my schedule right now but I have chosen no to stress about it.  I am calling it a rest period.   I am going on day 5, let’s see how long til I get twitchy.   After the last race, I was tired, so I figured a little rest won’t hurt.   But it will only be a little one!!!!!  I promise, help hold me accountable people!!

In brighter news, I was recently nominated for the Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award.  Say that 5 times fast.   The nomination came from the wonderful TIA and the awesome Tartan Jogger.  Thanks Ladies!  I won’t lie, sometimes these awards confuse me.  They are amazing to get, don’t get me wrong, they sometimes bring back memories of signing yearbooks and never knowing what to write.  “Have a bitchin’ summer” anyone?

So the rules are as follows (I think)- Thank the blogger who nominated you, answer some questions, nominate 10-12 other bloggers and notify them on their blogs.  Easy enough right?  So Q&A time-

Favorite color– Alternates between purple and grey, depends on my mood.

Favorite animal- Cats-  they are self-sufficient enough for my admittedly Slacker self, and slightly anti-social like me, ha!

Favorite non-alcoholic drink– Diet Coke, seriously I’m addicted.

Facebook or Twitter– I’m still working out Twitter (17 followers, woo hoo 😦 ), so Facebook.

Favorite pattern–  Ummm, help?  Chevron?

Favorite number– 394, anyone know why?

Favorite Flower– Rose, is it narcissistic if that’s also my middle name?

What is your passion–  Still looking for it, but when I do, I will shout it from the rooftops.

So next- my nominees in no particular order-

Running From it all

Attempted Runner

Bayrunner Jamie

Princess and the Jog

Don’t Blink. Just Run

I Thought they said RUM

See This Girl Run

Lucy on the Lookout

Hmmm, just noticed a lack of female bloggers I follow.  I need to find more!!!!   Any suggestions?  I would have nominated TIA and Tartan Jogger, but someone beat me to it!  🙂

Ok, I totally admit that I am a Slacker, and I am going to do my best to notify everyone on their blogs, (yearbooks again) however, if I do not in the next 24 hours, and any of my nominees read this before I do, please don’t wait for me, enjoy your shout out!!!!!  Also if you have previously been nominated just use this as confirmation that you rock.

Hope everyone had a good Monday!

Any Reindeer or Jingle Runs in the future?
