Woke up a wee bit sore from yesterday’s 5 mile run, but only had 3 scheduled for the day. So I decided to take it easy & took Leonardo out on the trail for a recovery run. We made better time today, as we only had one couple stop us to chat. We were out there early enough when the temps were still quite low – in the 50’s. I still managed to break a solid sweat, so it was good.
I had tons of energy left when we got home, so I did my 100 pushup challenge, then popped in a Tae Bo Advanced tape & did that for an hour. I was done in, but decided to sneak in a few crunches on the ball. Yeah. Should have stopped while I was ahead…
Murphy’s Law Day
So I have Pergo floors… with a healthy dose of doggie tracked in dirt in the back room. I didn’t think about it, just laid back on the ball & started to do the first crunch. The ball spun out from underneath me, causing my ass to hit the floor, along with my good hand. Now the wrist & palm base of my GOOD hand is all swollen & bruised. Just fantastic. *sigh* It’s bad enough the hand that was sliced open a month ago isn’t looking as good as I’d like (it really should have had internal stitches as well) – it’s gaping, red & today, swollen again. <grrr>
Iced the left hand, grabbed a shower, but was still late to meet a friend at the bookstore. Arrived at the bookstore only to discover that I had left my wallet at home. She was shopping elsewhere at the mall, so texted me back & said to go ahead & get it, she’d wait. Get my wallet & back to the bookstore I go. Found several things that I just HAD to get… new 2009 calendars (a Great Dane and Harry Potter & HBP – yum), Kanye West’s brand new CD – awesome, books for me as well as a book for each of the boys. Waited in line for 15 minutes, only to find after the cashier rang me up that I had no freaking checks left in the checkbook. Put it all on hold, had coffee & a low fat roll with the BFF in the coffee shop. We decided to meet up at Target after I hit the ATM & bought my bookstore selections.
On the drive, I listen to the new CD… I already loved the first release off it, “Love Lockdown”, so I knew I’d like it. First pass through on the CD, this one also caught my ear…
I arrive at Target & start wandering. Found a great sweater for the youngest manlet for $4 & a nice wallet (except it’s pink, ugh) for $9… texting the BFF all the while. “where r u?” “clothing”… I go there. She’s not to be found. She texts me again “going next door”. “where?” “shoes”… I head straight for the shoes. She’s not there. Sinking feeling… as my phone rings… it’s the BFF. I ask her “WHICH Target did you go to???” Yup. She had gone to a totally different Target. ROFL!
Haven’t knit yet today, but I am totally heading that way once I’m done blogging! I need to de-stress. LOL! Still working on the candle flame shawl, though I’m eyeballing some other patterns for the next projects… undecided yet, but the brain is whirling with ideas, anyway. Still totally want to do up a new pattern for Draco. ;)
Today’s Ravelry Search
So maybe a search like this will turn around my day today, hmm? One can always hope, anyway!
Happy Monday, all!
