Happy Thursday! It kind of feels like a Friday because it’s the last day of school before spring break. Time to celebrate with a glass of wine!
I usually work over spring break, but this year I am taking off next Wednesday through Friday to finish up packing and get ready for the actual move. Maybe I will even relax a little—> doubtful. I seem to find myself more busy on days off. Spring break just puts me in a good mood because, well, spring. and break. Hopefully it will actually feel like spring!
This picture was from last Easter when my in-laws visited and we all stayed at my parents’ house for the weekend. This year we are waiting on “Baby Shannon” to arrive! She is due tomorrow!
Um, speaking of babies, does someone want to please explain to me why I suddenly started getting E-mails to “Sean” from Pampers talking about week 26 of pregnancy? I’ve also gotten E-mails from Listerine to “Sean”. Is there really someone named Sean with a similar E-mail address to “Runningoutofwine@gmail? Seems like a tough name to mistaken, but who knows. I should probably unsubscribe but I always forget. There are actually about 15 E-mails I should unsubscribe to but I just allow them to fill my mailbox everyday. Maybe that will be on my “to-do” list on one of the days I am off next week.
Oh, so something I have been meaning to mention but kept forgetting about:
In the process of moving I went through all my clothes and got rid of anything I haven’t worn lately- (no use bringing it to a new house). Just as I was doing this I saw that Sue posted about Thred Up. Have you ever heard of this? I hadn’t until she shared it on her blog. You can order a bag from them, and mail them clothes that you don’t want. They accept certain brand name items and you will earn a percent of their value. I filled my bag with things from The Loft, Gap, and J Crew and earned $22! Not bad for things I was gonna throw out anyway!
Ok and one other random thing that I just need to share….
So lately my iPhone has been doing this weird thing where if I try to put it on silence by moving the little switch on the side down, it jumps back and forth between being on silent and on sound (as if something is wrong with the switch). So sometimes when I go to take a picture and I think it is on silent, it makes a noise. There are plenty of times when I take pictures in public and purposely silence it because I don’t want other people to know I’m taking a picture. It hasn’t make a noise in front of anyone yet, but it’s only a matter of time.
And finally- let’s talk running for a minute. Because…I ran this week! I think I mentioned that last week I ran 2.5 miles on the Alter-G. Well long story (which I will tell you all another day) short is I started feeling much better on Monday and went out and ran a mile. OMG it was hard. It hasn’t been that long since I ran (3 weeks I think) and I have kept up with some cardio, but I really felt like I was a new runner starting from scratch. I am crossing my fingers that my progress continues so that I can start running again a few days a week and gradually feel normal again. There’s lots more to say about the whole PT journey and I think I will share that next week after I have had some more time to see how things are going.
What’s the weirdest E-mail you’ve ever gotten?
When is the next time you are taking off from work or going away?
What was the longest amount of time you took off from running and how long did it take you to feel normal again?
