Run!

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?

Merry merry Christmas Eve Eve

Merry Christmas Eve eve!!!!  For those of you already at Christmas Eve, I am envious!

Thank you WordPress for the slew of fake likes.  That was fun.  I used to like hearing the WordPress notification chime on my phone.  After the other nights post, I almost began to dread it.  Less than 2 seconds after I posted, someone had liked it.  I was skeptic, so I looked into it.   Turns out it’s not legit, nor were 9 or 10 that followed.  (I did get a few real ones, thanks guys!)  I have to admit, I don’t get the point.   Its supposed to be about clicks, but they don’t even do a great job of making it look realistic?

Sunday’s shopping trip was pretty good.  The crowds were not insane and weather was freakishly warm- 70º!!!  I was able to finish my shopping and my wrapping on Sunday 🙂  Today was pretty good at work too.  Other than that same piece of equipment that crapped out a on Friday the 13th, died again.  When we left for the day it was still not working.  😦  Hopefully the tech guy will be out early in the morning tomorrow.

I really had planned on running this evening, but somehow I forgot caffeine today.    All day.  I fell asleep on my lunch in the break room.   I have been trying to transition from Diet soda to coffee.  I eliminated the diet soda entirely 2 weeks ago and replaced it with a 12oz real soda.  I would also try to choke down a coffee.  It’s not going so well, still can’t stand the taste.  Then this weekend, I bought some tea thinking I would try that.  I noticed today that I stupidly bought caffeine free.   Today, I some forgot to get a soda, and never managed to drink my coffee.  By 2:00, my head was pounding and then the nap.  Oops.

Tomorrow at work, we are having a breakfast potluck and an ugly sweater contest.    I don’t one so I decided to make one.  Hmmm, this is not my strongest talent.  The cat also discovered tinsel for the first time and it was apparently better than catnip.   It turned into a tug of war for the garland.

Ugly in progress..oh and it jingles too!

Living in central California, I long ago gave up on snow for Christmas, but fog or clouds would be awesome!!  I am not a fan of bright sunny Christmas’s.  Fingers crossed!!!!

Wishing everyone who is traveling, safe journeys!

Is everyone ready for Christmas?!!
