I’m bad at titling posts that have a lot of tangents. Sorry ’bout it. My brain doesn’t function on a high enough level to pull my day together into one cohesive storyline. Everything comes out all jumbled up and way more complicated than it needs to me. Pretty much explains my blog in a nutshell. Instead of trying to make this make sense, I’m just going to start typing.
Last night I got high on spray paint. But, like, not on purpose. Except kind of on purpose, because I didn’t open the garage door to use it. Y’all, it was cold outside. Warmth trumps safety. Today, I did err on the side of caution and get Ryne to use the drill for me. I know how to use it and everything, but the farther I stay away from power tools the better. Together, we created this beautiful masterpiece.
I know I said I wasn’t going to get a bib/medal display, but I lied. I decided I do in fact prefer that they not be mangled up in tangled up knots in the craft room. I don’t have a ton of them, but they deserve a special spot I suppose. It’s chalkboard. Mainly so I can draw funny pictures on it randomly and hopefully update some PRs. I would also like to note that I have since erased the race distances and corrected the order. I’m not the best with numbers, but I’m pretty sure a 10k is longer than 5 miles.
I think I might make a few of these for Christmas gifts, but I don’t know if that it too reminiscent of macaroni glued onto construction paper. I mean, do people still like homemade gifts? I’m seriously asking. Let me know.
Okay. So, moving on. I ran three miles tonight and watched Elf. That is tied with the Grinch for my favorite Christmas movie. PS: Can you find the Grinch reference in this post? I mean, other than the ones in this paragraph, obviously.
Yes, I did buy a shelf for the “new” gym TV. Thanks for noticing. The only problem is it’s practically hanging by a thread. I didn’t read the weight limit when I bought it. Minor detail. We also cleaned the gym and I am so relieved there isn’t a before picture anywhere because it was actually disgusting. See my race medals over in the corner? They’re on the display but they are not on the wall. We’ll probably get around to that next December. By the way, it bothers me that there is a rogue post it note in this photo. Thought that needed to be said.
Tomorrow I’m taking the day off of work because our babysitter isn’t keeping any kids this week. Random days off are kind of cool, but I have no idea what we’ll be getting into. I really want to win the title of Cool Parent, so I’m trying to think of some extra exciting things to do with Maddux. It’s kind of easy to do that, though, when your kid thinks riding with the sun roof open is the epitome of fun.
Anyway, see y’all tomorrow!
