Runners: Open Thread

First things first. Runners: when at all possible, especially on busy streets, we are to run facing traffic, not with it. There were scads of runners out this morning, far more than our running club, and many of them were just running wherever they seemed to feel like it. Dude, no wonder drivers seem to …

Lazy-dazy afternoon

They’re clarifying the amount of snow that our particular patch of Wisconsin will get, as opposed to the rest of southeast Wisconsin, and it’s looking a little more like 1-3 inches. Much more tolerable. And it’s to start in the afternoon, so my run is probably safe. Not that I’d have skipped it or taken …

See? Told you.

Remember when I put up the picture of snow in late March from last year, to remind myself what was possible? … WINTER STORM POSSIBLE LATE SATURDAY AFTERNOON THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT… CURRENT INDICATIONS SUGGEST SNOWFALL ACCUMULATIONS WILL RANGE FROM 6 TO 9 INCHES ACROSS MUCH OF SOUTHEAST WISCONSIN…IN ADDITION… NORTHEAST WINDS WILL STRENGTHEN TO 15 …

The plumber is on his way.

“Ummmm…we were having stick races down the drain. But it was a long, long time ago!” “Yeah! Not last night; we were sleeping then!” 🙄 I hope this is cheap, or at least not too bad. Tried plunging it, fishing down it – couldn’t even feel the obstruction. Drano is a laugh, since whatever’s clogging …

Also

After talking to Eric just now, we decided that 13.1 Chicago probably isn’t economically feasible, considering the travel, hotel, food, etc. Naturally, I immediately start looking at Madison. 😆 (The half, of course.)

How is it only 2?

Lots o’ crap buzzing around my head – things to do, things to check off my list, things to bite heads from…oh, wait, I probably should have skipped that last one. 🙄 Just feeling grouchy today, for reasons that are almost certainly hormonal and will pass. One thing in particular that’s been rubbing at me …

I needed this.

Every so often, running, good nutrition, and adequate sleep just stops cutting it. I feel grouchy, touched out, exhausted, and snappish in the extreme, and no amount of my usual self-maintenance gets me better than a baseline “meh.” I need recharged, to have my wells refilled. So the opportunity arose this morning to do that, …

What have I accomplished today?

– 1 2 loads of laundry, from hamper to folded in drawers. – Unloaded dishwasher, reloaded and run again – Tidied living room – Baked teeny-tiny cupcakes: – Prepped dinner – Ran 5 miles and change – With Gabe: played with shaving cream, read stories, stamped, played with blocks, etc. Hmmm. Somehow it felt like …

Runners: Open Thread

I’d write more today, but I am utterly spent, having completed a day of running and then running around, candies and cooking, mothering and trying hard to keep from acting the child myself. One of those days. So let’s let it suffice to say that today’s run = good, and I’ve found a new favorite …

More alert today

I did get to bed early last night, and despite getting my run in at 4:30 this morning, I still feel more awake. 🙂 Last night’s concert was okay. The violin teacher amazes me at every turn. She had instructed all the children that if they reached a part of a song that they couldn’t …
