Ever had a case of the yawns?  I was yawning all day on Thursday.  I just couldn’t seem to stop.

My Nissan would not let me lock my keys in my car.  I can officially confirm that my Ford is not that smart.  Neither am I.   Lesson learned the hard way.

Speaking of my Ford- I joke that it’s the gutless wonder. Yet, somehow this week, every time I got behind someone- on the freeway, the scenic route, etc., cars kept moving over. Do I look scary???😂

I finished my Person of Interest binge on Netflix. I started a few months ago but took a break when the last season started because I knew what was coming. I won’t lie- I acted like a 5 year old and hid the screen with my hand during part of the series finale. 😂 Still can’t handle it.

Now I need something new to watch.

This week has been odd with the exercise. Makes me wonder how the weekend is going to go.

All the schools have officially started again out here which means my commute has become a little more time consuming. 3 school zones in 3 different cities.😒

But in awesome news- the weather forecast is in the 80’s for the next week!!! Party!!!

What are you up to this weekend?

Is it Friday yet? And now it is because I didn’t finish this when I started it.  Oops.  But yay!

Nothing makes a lazy runner stretch more than the first twinge of an injury.

Right?

I’ve been having some back issues and I was hoping they would clear up with the new bed.  Yeah, that hasn’t happened yet.   I realize it hasn’t even been 2 weeks but still.  I think the movie theater chairs really pissed it off.    Monday saw the yoga app being used and more stretching on Tuesday.    Sitting on tennis balls, foam rolling, you name it.  Grrr.

This week has been odd.  I feel run over but not exhausted.   I don’t even know how that makes sense.   It’s been odd adjusting to my boss being gone and as a result, I’ve been a little absent this week.  Ok, if I’m honest- the last month.   I am going to get back to a normal schedule- I miss you guys!

We now get to wear jeans on Fridays and I think I am the only one going wah.  I have to wear pants?  But I don’t like pants.  😛  It’s ok, I can deal with it once a week.  😀

With San Jose in 2 weeks, I would really like to pull off a 10 miler this weekend.  Fingers crossed!!!

In other news, Fall is definitely in the air!!

What are you up to this weekend?

What’s up people?  Happy Fri-yay!

I’ve only been back at work for 4 days and I am only treading water.   I was prepared for July to be crazy but that crazy started 3 weeks early.   I came back from vacation to find hundreds of emails and that the next 4 weeks are full of trainings and meetings.  I need more hours in the day.  And more caffeine.  Some of these meetings are 8 hours long.   I apologize now if I start making no sense over the next few weeks.  😛

Speaking of long meetings?  Any tips for staying awake?  I have troubles in enclosed spaces and after a few hours a meeting room becomes a small space.

Can I just say that I’m loving the extendable visors in my new car?  It’s the little things right?

There should be a bullshit detector at the DMV.  I have to renew my license this year and my last few have all been by mail.  My picture and information haven’t been updated since I was 19.😯  My weight was wrong then- 40 pounds more than what I really weighed at the time- and I didn’t bother to correct it today.   She asked if it had changed and even though I know full well I weigh 30 lbs more than it says- I said it’s all good.  

How old is your driver’s license picture?

Happy Friday Eve!

Nope, it’s Friday now.  😛

I am so looking forward to a 3 day weekend.  I have so many things I need to do.  My car has reached a ridiculous level of dirty again.    And I probably should get in a long run.   Seems like a smart thing to do with a race next week.

So I bought a new sports bra.  Realized it was past time to replace some of mine but the store had very few in my size.  Guess it’s a popular size?  The only color they had was white, kind of boring but whatever.   Then I wore it.  Makes no sense but I felt weird having my straps show.  Purple, coral or flowers and I have no problem but something about the white made me want to cover it up!  That doesn’t even make sense!


My stomach has been an asshat of a different level this week.   I was having a pretty good month- still sick everyday but having a good month- but this week the right side has been hurting abnormally.  Not cool.  I’m pretty good at ignoring pain and it’s nothing too severe but it’s not a normal spot.  Boo.

I’m debating seeing a movie this weekend.   I’m on the fence about the new Pirates movie and can’t decide if it’s worth the expense.  Part of me also wants to go car shopping.   nothing wrong with my car, I’ve just had it for 3 years.  That sounds bad I know but this is car number 10… no 9.  Crap, I’ve lost count.

Random- Did you know that Luffa’s are a vegetable?  I had no idea.  I feel like I know nothing now.    So you shower with a vegetable?  Huh?

What are your plans this weekend?

What up Friday?!  Woot Woot!

Ok, that was cheesy.  Sorry, it’s been an odd week.

So today is St. Patrick’s Day but it seems like everyone partied last weekend?  I was a little stumped by some things I saw on social media.  Then again, I’m kind of homebody so maybe I was the only clueless one.   I mean I can understand why you wouldn’t want to race the morning after St. Patrick’s Day.  Just ouch.

A sinkhole opened in work town!  Holy crap!  It’s a small one but seriously those things only happen on tv in other places.  So weird.   And freaky.

Speaking of freaky, have seen that Kripsy Kreme is making green donuts for today?   Ummm, I think they went too far.

Part of me wants to run a 5K this weekend.  Part of me wants to sleep in.  Am I really that lazy?    Or that I doubt my follow through for running another 8 miles after that to finish my long run.

What are you doing this weekend?

Anyone racing?  Any parties?

Anyone sleeping in? 😛
