Last night I closed my computer still not knowing if I was going to run. Well, long story short, Maddux decided that I was not going to get the chance to decide. Kids. They rule the roost, that’s for sure. Speaking of roosts, do turkeys live in those? Follow up question, is this even a turkey? Love it. Abstract art at its finest.
Today was our last day of four-year-old kindergarten until next week. Thanksgiving break, yo! I’m so excited to spend some extra time around the house. I might actually accomplish some things I’ve been putting off in regards to cleaning and decorating. I doubt it, though, because Thanksgiving pretty much gives me a week long food hangover. Totally worth it, but still. I’m currently debating on whether or not I will run a local Thanksgiving 5k. It’s actually on Thanksgiving, so I mean, I might want to lounge around in my pajamas watching the parade instead. These are the types of serious life decisions I will be making over the course of the week. That and which side do I want thirds of the most, and how formal I want to go in regards to my attire.
We’re also planning to have a small “Friendsgiving” this weekend, so that should be fun. I don’t eat turkey, so I’m considering switching my main dish to red wine. I think that’s a fair trade. Our friends are seriously hilarious, so it should be a good time. I’m pretty sure everyone reverts to 17 when they’re with their high school friends. It’s a fact. Speaking of high school, have y’all read this? If you were in school in the early 2000s, this is scarily accurate.
I feel like this post is already full on random tangents, so I should just add some more in and call it a day.
- This weekend at the mall, two teenaged boys asked to take a picture with me. I’m so freaking naive, I said “sure!” before even considering the possible outcomes. I didn’t know them, it was a weird request, and I’m pretty much the most gullible person you’ve ever met. It was a perfect storm of stupidity. Basically, what I’m saying is if you see my picture on the internet, let me know.
- I really appreciate all of the feedback on yesterday’s post about blogging and eating disorders. I was pretty nervous to post it, but I’m not sure why. I guess it’s embarrassing to admit that I once fell prey to the ridiculousness that is restrictive eating. Now that I think about it, I’m not surprised I fell for something. Refer to my previous tangent. I’m not the brightest bulb, I suppose.
- The concept of time is nuts. Maddux can sit and watch an entire movie, yet five minutes in the car is pure torture for him. Things you love doing never seem to last long enough, and things you hate drag on for eternity. I need a fast forward button when it comes to things like cleaning the baseboards (ha! like I do that all the time), washing dishes, and ironing clothes. Those three things make me want to pull my hair out.
- I did finally run this afternoon. I ran last night’s three miles today. If that even makes sense. It was awesome. I got to watch Channing Tatum save the White House, which was as sexy as it sounds. I will always love the cardio cinema room. I swear it’s 10,000 times easier to run when they are playing action movies. Oh, and I changed into my gym clothes before I even left work so that I couldn’t talk myself out of going. It was a good look. Teacher sweater and all.
- I ate the best, veggie-less comfort food dinner tonight. Oh, and that was after making a pit stop at Starbucks with Maddux at 5 o’clock. I ordered a coffee and got a sandwich for him to snack on. He didn’t want it, so naturally I scarfed it down. I’m happy to report that I was still able to eat my actual dinner around 8 pm. Yeah, we keep Zax sauces in the house. That’s not weird.
Well five is a good enough number to stop on. I think we’re going to pop “Elf” in and drink the ever classy Rolling Rocks we have in the fridge. I had one at dinner, so I think it’s appropriate to keep that momentum going for at least a few more minutes. Then I’ll probably be in bed by 10. Wildin’ out!
