Lately I keep having to remind myself that it’s really the middle of May. I guess the cooler weather we had earlier this month made me feel like it was still March. The year is just flying by so maybe I’m in denial that we are almost halfway through 2017!
Tomorrow we head to Cleveland for Rob’s marathon. I figured today was a good day to just ramble about what’s been going on lately. It’s been awhile since I’ve done that!
It’s sandal season so time to clean up my feet. You probably know that I’ve been getting lots of dry needling done lately. After the needling I have also been getting stim and ultrasound. This means that lots of people are getting very close to my feet several times a week. I’ve felt like I have actually had to keep my feet looking decent whereas I usually don’t care all that much. It helps that I’m not marathon training, which totally destroys my feet.
I found another pair of sandals that seem to make my feet happy. (But who really knows- they are so temperamental!) I got these at DSW and they have decent support and the thick straps hold my feet in place better than flip flops. Here is the Amazon (affiliate) link: Merrell Around Town Slide Sandal (I’m not really into shoes/fashion at all, I just like to share my shoe finds with you because I know others have feet that are difficult to make happy!)
I got a new car in March and we have a 3 month trial of sires radio. It’s pretty addicting. Very smart to give a free trial for new car purchases because now I can’t imagine not having it. I used to just listen to one radio station and deal with bad songs and commercials. Now, I constantly need to have a good song on otherwise I am scrolling through to find something I like.
Run and 10 DVD
I’ve mentioned that the guy on the Run and 10 DVD is…interesting. One of my favorite quotes is from a core work section of the DVD when we do dead bugs. It goes something like this: “Ok now you’re gonna get on your back and do some deadbugs. See all those dead bugs on the floor eating cookie crumbs? You shouldn’t be eating cookies! That’s why we are doing core work!” You have to hear it to really understand these random things he says.
Both at work and at home technology is driving me crazy. At work we need to now make any documents we post online “accessible” meaning they can be read for anyone with a disability or by a screen reader. I went into this having no idea what I was doing. I’ve learned a lot, but it’s still a really frustrating and time-consuming process. Hopefully as I get used to it will just because second nature. After a long day of dealing with this last Friday I got home and wanted to set up my Tailwind account to schedule pins for the week. I like to schedule pins from group boards to spread them out, but the Tailwind icon wasn’t showing up. I contacted Tailwind and apparently there is a “bug” in the system.
I can’t get through a thinking out loud post without mentioning the weather, right? How did it just jump like 50 degrees? I kind of hope the warm weather is here to stay now. And a break from weeks of rain would be nice too! Oh, but wait, Rob is running a marathon on Sunday so if Cleveland weather would cooperate that would be great. Also, I’d really like it to not be pouring rain when I’m standing outside cheering for 4 hours.
Are you good about keeping up with pedicures in the summer?
Do you have Sirius Radio? What’s your favorite station?
Anyone else experiencing Tailwind issues lately?
