I’ve actually been home for a few days now haha! On Wednesday my brother drove me home to Kansas, then back to Illinois. And then yesterday my mom, dad, and brother stopped here on their way to Colorado.
Basically what I’m saying is I’ve been kinda busy!
Between helping my dad get things cleaned up at the house in Illinois, traveling back to Kansas and getting the house back in order and taking care of all my responsibilities that had kinda put on the back burner while I was gone, then entertaining my family while they were here at my house, I haven’t had a lot of time to blog or keep up with my other social media accounts. It’s all good though, I think a little break from social media can be a good thing every once in a while. 😉
So anyway, I didn’t get a lot of running done this week. Like I said, I’ve been kinda busy. Plus on Thursday I think I might have been suffering from heat exhaustion. I ran 2 miles in the morning, then spent 2 hours in bed because standing up made me dizzy. I guess all that hard work in the sun really did me in. And then running kinda hard definitely didn’t help. So ever since then I’ve been trying to stay cool and hydrated. And I actually feel a lot better today!
But then yesterday I had another unfortunate foot incident. Remember last September when my toe got really fucked up after some drunken shenanigans? And now it looks like I’m going to lose the toenail on that toe again? Yeah well yesterday while trying to put Dean up because my dogs don’t get along with my parents’ dog, I ran into a framed poster we have hanging in the hallway and it ended up falling on my foot. The same foot that’s having toe issues. Fun times. It bruised and swelled up almost immediately, but after icing it off and on for a few hours yesterday it actually doesn’t hurt too much today. I’m still going to rest it though. More foot issues are the absolute last thing I need right now…
On the bright side of things, Luke and I kinda went on a little shopping spree yesterday before my parents and brother got here, and we both ended up getting some neat things. 🙂 First we went to Dick’s, where I got two new Nike sports bras that I definitely needed! They say that your bras shouldn’t celebrate a birthday (meaning that you’re supposed to replace them every year), but I’ve been wearing my favorite sports bra for at least 3 years now. Oops. And they were on sale which was a huge bonus!! I also got a tube of Nuun so that I don’t end up feeling like crap after being in the heat again (at least hopefully) and another tank top, because one cannot have too many tank tops. 😉
Then we went to Hottopic because we’re both apparently still 17 haha. Actually, Luke just wanted a new earring and I wanted some more Green Day t-shirts because I’m running dangerously low (and by that I mean I only had 3 before our Hottopic trip 😉 ). Unfortunate for me, they had ONE freaking Green Day shirt in my size, so of course I got it. Luke got the earring he wanted and since body jewelry was buy one get one for $5 I got a new set of nose rings. I’ve been wearing the same nose ring for 7 years now, so I suppose it was time for a change haha. Plus one of them in the pack I got was purple, and I thought that was super spiffy!! 🙂
And to finish off my little shopping spree, I ordered a little over $50 worth of Honey Stinger stuff last night! In all fairness, I wanted to get free shipping!! Plus with half marathon training coming up, I figured three boxes of waffles (along with a few other things) was a good idea. I got a box each of two of my favorite flavors; ginger snap and chocolate. Along with a box of the new gluten free mint chocolate waffles. I’m not gluten intolerant or anything, I just really wanted to try that flavor! Eventually I’m going to try the vanilla chocolate as well! 🙂
Also, if you fuel with Honey Stinger like I do, you might want to take advantage of their Memorial Day sale! Everything on their site is 25% off when you use the code FREEDOM at checkout. 👍🏻😄
So yeah, I’ve definitely been a busy bee but aside from a few little incidents, I’d say life is pretty great right now! I guess now that it’s almost June, I need to start getting prepared for our trip to Florida with Luke’s family. That’s the first week of July so it’s coming up pretty quickly! But I guess I’ll talk more about that later. I’m done droning on about random things for now.
I hope you have a great Saturday!
