Easter Weekend Shenanigans

Woohoo! I’m finally able to really use my right hand again!!! πŸ˜„πŸ˜„πŸ˜„

I got bit by a dog on Monday while Luke, the dogs, and I were in Illinois visiting our families. Yeah, it was totally my fault and I have hard feelings towards the dog. I shouldn’t have grabbed her when she bolted out the door…

But I’ll get to that story eventually! First let’s talk about all of the fun Luke and I managed to squeeze into our small amount of time in Illinois! πŸ˜‰

So, early last week Luke found out he got Easter Sunday off of work, so on a whim he kinda decided to take a vacation day for the following Monday so we could go visit our families. He had to work on Saturday though, so we’re only going up have a very small amount of time there, but we sure managed to use that time well!

On Saturday I spent the day doing laundry, dishes, bathing the dogs, packing for our trip, and just getting everything ready in general for us to be gone for a few days. I’m pretty sure I went over all of that in this post. πŸ˜‰Β Anyway, Saturday evening when Luke got home from work I was ready to go! He quickly changed, we packed the car, loaded up the dogs and started making our way to Illinois. It takes about 5 hours to get from our house to Luke’s dad’s in Illinois. It’s a boring drive, but it’s a lot better than the 11 hours that it takes to get to my mom and dad’s in Longmont Colorado! πŸ˜‰ Finn sure got comfy on our way there haha.

 

We got to Luke’s dad’s house around 11:30 Saturday night and as per our new tradition that we started on Christmas, Luke, his dad, oldest brother, and myself stayed up until 2:30 am playing Cards Against Humanity haha. Luke’s dad bought an expansion pack so we had all sorts of new cards to play with. It was a lot of fun. What wasn’t fun was sleeping on their pullout couch. It doesn’t feel very sturdy, sinks in, and there’s not a lot of room. Luke and I fit on it fine, but when you have 3 dogs trying to also sleep on it, well, things get kinda crowded. I think I ended up getting like 2 hours of sleep that night. Fun! πŸ˜‰

 

The next morning Luke’s youngest brother woke us up by coming into the living room where we were sleeping, and slowly getting closer and closer the the pullout couch. He’d take a step, stop, look at us for a little bit, then take another step, stop, you get the picture. That freaked Finn out. He forced his way in between Luke and I and was growling at Luke’s brother. After a few minutes of that we had to get up and let all of the dogs outside. Not long after that Luke’s dad and step mom came downstairs and started making breakfast. It seems like they like to do biscuits and gravy for holiday breakfasts but they know I’m not a fan, so they made me a nice sausage, egg, and cheese sandwich instead. πŸ™‚ So we ate, talked, Luke took a shower, his youngest brother explained pokemon to me while Luke’s dad and I were trying to talk about other stuff (haha sorry dude, but I could absolutely school you on pokemon! Next time we go there I’ll have to bring my DS and battle him. πŸ˜‰ ). And all the while Finn stood on a wood pile, looking longingly inside at us hahaha.

This is the correct way to bathroom selfie, right? Haha just messing around after our 5 hour car ride.

The next morning Luke’s youngest brother woke us up by coming into the living room where we were sleeping, and slowly getting closer and closer the the pullout couch.

After Luke had showered and ate we drove to my old house so we could do some target practice. My mom and dad haven’t sold it yet so we’re still able to go there, although I don’t like going. The farm is sold so all of the land belongs to someone else now. And they’ve changed a lot of things and it just makes me sad. Haha the whole time we were there Luke kept telling me one day we’ll have our own land to do what we want with.

img_0697-1

My hand prints and my brother’s footprints (that you can barely see) in our old driveway. Crazy to think it was 18 years ago when we did that…

Anyway, Luke and I set up our target, technically on the people who bought the farm’s property, but they weren’t there so no big deal haha. πŸ˜‰ And did a little bit of shooting. It was cold and windy so we didn’t stay long, but it’s been a looooong time since I’ve shot a gun. Glad to see I can still hit a target! πŸ™‚

 

After we had our fun we drove to my grandma’s new house. She had a little Easter party so my great Aunt and Uncle (my Auntie and Uncle Pa. πŸ™‚ ), my mom, brother, and Uncle Ken (my mom’s brother) were all there. Luke said hi to everyone but had to leave because he had to go to his Grandma Becky’s Easter lunch. I was right about my grandma and Uncle Ken cooking though! They made an amazing ham, German green beans, cauliflower, potato salad, and my grandma made the BEST desserts; peach cobbler and a cheesecake. It was a fantastic lunch! After we’d all eaten my Aunt Lori showed up (she’s my Auntie and Uncle Pa’s daughter). So we all got to visit for a while. It started sleeting though, so my Auntie, Uncle Pa, and Aunt Lori had to leave before the weather got too bad. After they had gone my Grandma, Uncle, and I watched the Jesus Christ Super Star thing that was on TV. I’ve never actually seen Jesus Christ Super Star before, but I really enjoyed it! And Alice Cooper being in it was pretty spiffy too! And after that we were all pretty tired so we all went to bed.

So I spent my Easter shooting, eating, and hanging out with family. It was nice. πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

Monday morning Luke was up bright and early! Half an hour earlier than me, which doesn’t often happen haha. But we had things we wanted to do and we had to leave later that day, so getting up early made sense. πŸ™‚

First Luke and his brother came and picked up me and my brother and we drove back to the old house so our brothers could do a little bit of shooting. Again we didn’t spend a lot of time there. It was even colder and now it was wet and icy from the sleet the night before. We all had fun though. Luke’s brother doesn’t exactly get to shoot a lot so he was happy to get to, even though I kept having to remind him of gun safety. πŸ˜‰ And my brother got to show off a little bit and I never had to yell at him haha. But remember that both of us have been shooting basically since we could walk. πŸ˜‰

This photo is actually from Sunday, but whatever. πŸ˜‰

After our second round of target practice, we drove back to Luke’s dad’s, picked up his youngest brother and went to the St. Louis City Museum. I haven’t been there since Iw as in like, second grade, and everyone else had never been, so we figured it would be fun to do something different. If you’ve never been to the City Museum, it’s basically a art exhibit/giant playground. With just a tiny bit of actual museum stuff thrown into the mix. The outdoor stuff was still all closed because it’s still too cold out, but there was still plenty to do inside! We played on skate ramps, climbed a crazy amount of stairs, went down a 10 story slide, climbed on stuff, explored an indoor cave, and ate overpriced pizza. It was a lot of fun. πŸ™‚

 

After the City museum we dropped my brother off at my grandma’s, dropped Luke’s younger brother off at his house, then Luke, his other brother, and I went to Barns and Noble, and then to Luke’s Grandma Wilma’s house. That’s when I got bit by the dog. When we got there her dogs bolted out the door, she said they’d run away, so I grabbed one of them, and she got scared, and bit my right hand a couple of times. Totally my fault. I shouldn’t of grabbed her like that. But she left one pretty decent puncture in my wrist, a few scratches, and my whole hand was swollen. Luke’s grandma cleaned up the wound, and put some antibacterial stuff on it along with a band aid. It hurt like hell but we figured it didn’t require a hospital visit. But anyway, we hung out with her for a while, but it was getting to be around 3:30 pm and Luke and I still needed to drive home. So we left her house, went to Luke’s dad’s said goodbye to everyone there, got Lily and Luke’s stuff. Drove to my Grandma’s, got Finn and Dean, and my stuff, said by to everyone there, got into the car, and began our journey home.

The drive home was slightly more miserable than the drive there. Our car doesn’t have any heat and it was cold and rainy out, so we got to spend 5 hours shivering. It definitely wasn’t as bad as our drive to Colorado over Thanksgiving though! The temperatures were in the negatives for a lot of that drive! This time it was above freezing at least. And we made it home around 9:15 pm without any real issues, so that was good. πŸ™‚

img_0744-1

Haha so yeah, like I said, we squeezed in quite a lot in the short amount of time we had there! Of course I ended up getting hurt, but at least it was during our last few hours there haha. And my hand is healing up quite nicely at this point! It’s still kinda sore and a little bit swollen, but I can actually use it again which is nice! Although after typing all of this it’s kinda hurting again. πŸ˜‰ And I’ve been able to keep the wound clean and it seems to be healing very well, so I’ll gladly take it! Cat bites tend to get infected more than dogs bites do, but still, you can never be too careful about that kind of thing. And I only missed out on a few days of running, and that was mostly just because we were traveling. But I’ll talk about that in my weekly recap on Sunday.

Whew! Alrighty then! I didn’t think this post was going to be so long haha. But I guess I should have seen that coming. We did do a lot of stuff. But, that is all for now!

I hope everyone is having a fantastic Friday!!

You’re very injury prone friend,

March 1st, 2018

The last few days have been kinda boring here in Colorado. Mostly because my dad and brother have to work, but also because my stomach has been kinda bothering me. Probably because I’ve lived off of Chinese food and pizza since Tuesday… As fun as that sounds it’s not doing my body any good. Haha my options were very limited though. But my dad and I went to the store last night and got stuff to make smoothies, Super Hero muffins, and all sort of good stuff like that. 😁

So I ended up spending quite a bit of time in the kitchen, but first I had to get a run in! πŸ˜‰ I hadn’t run in 2 days, so I figured I should today. I didn’t feel like going far though so “short and speedy” was the name of the game today. Although I’m not sure of you could actually call what I did speedy haha. Dealing with the elevation is still pretty tough (I’ve been told it can take several months to actually acclimate to it, and I’m definitely not going to be here for that long), so I just went with what felt hard and did 2 miles of intervals. So the elevation seems to wear me out pretty quick and like I said, I’m not feeling great from all of the junk food, so I ate a Honey Stinger waffle before this run. Not something I’d typically do before such a short run, but I like to think it helped. πŸ˜‰

 

 

 

After I got done with my run I showered and realized just how tired I was. Haha have I mentioned that the elevation wears me out? πŸ˜‰ So I napped for a little bit and then began my cooking/cleaning adventures. This morning my dad had started making this vegetable and chicken soup. It’s got butter nut squash, cauliflower, sweet potatoes, onions, beets, and obviously chicken in it. Super healthy, very tasty, but not very visually appealing haha. But anyway, I finished making that. All I had to do was run it through the blender, so I had the easy job. It took FOREVER though. Plus it was a super messy process, so cleaning up once I was done took a while too. I also made Super Hero muffins for my dad to try! Well, it’s more like a Super Hero cake, since they don’t have a muffin tin. But still just as tasty! Also less visually appealing than actual muffins though haha. πŸ˜‰

 

Other than running, napping, and cooking, I also spend quite a bit of time doing laundry, walking Niko, playing with Bella, and cleaning up around the apartment. So basically normal everyday things that I’d usually do at home and for different dogs/people haha. But it’s more exciting because it’s all in Colorado, right? πŸ˜‰

Anyway, earlier today I told my dad about a whisky 5k that’s held in Martin City (which is in the KC area where I live). He told me that’s literally the perfect 5k for him, since he loves whisky and his last name is Martin (and mine was too, before I got married haha). And every finisher gets a medal and a pint glass and since my dad kinda collects pint glasses (and other fancy glasses), I told him that we were gonna have to do it together. So we are! I’m so freaking stoked!! This’ll be his first official 5k and the first time I’ve had someone to run with during a race! It’s gonna be so much fun! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

img_0116

My dad’s gonna have to get a real pair of running shoes though. On Thanksgiving when we ran around the lake near his apartment he did it in work boots. Yeah, he said that wasn’t fun haha. I told him to go to a specialty running store and have them help him find a pair, so hopefully he has a chance to do that. I mean, he’s only got 10 days to get that done haha.

Whew! I’m super duper stoked right now!

I hope you’ve had a good Thursday!

February 27th, 2018

Last night I had an interesting experience with Niko. I have been sleeping on the couch in the living room and Niko usually sleeps on the floor out there. So last night before I went to bed, I’d gotten up to get a drink of water, and while I was up I noticed Niko’s water bowl was empty so I filled that up as well. While I was doing that he started eating out of his food bowl and growling at me. So at that point I was like “oh shit”. Because his particular breed is very aggressive and can be quite vicious. I mean, he is a Russian bear dog after all (also known as a Caucasian Shepard and Caucasian ovcharka). Plus that dog only weighs 28 pounds less than I do, and has teeth meant for ripping, tearing, and killing. So obviously I was pretty nervous.

I don’t usually get too worried when a dog gets aggressive, but look at this thing! He was literally bred to be a killing machine! Don’t get me wrong though, he can be very sweet and I don’t mind being around him or handling him when he’s in a good mood.

After a minute or so he got tired of me being so close to his food dish so he picked it up and moved it to the living room. I tired talking to him nicely, was being very calm, and moving slowly, but every time I took a step from the kitchen into the living room he’d start growling and barking at me. And I didn’t want to take any chances because of the reasons I’ve stated above.

Luckily after about 5 minutes of being stuck in the kitchen my brother came out of his bedroom to use the bathroom, so one he was done I yelled down the hallway for him to come help me haha. And of course Niko didn’t care if he walked into the living room (although my dad said usually it’s my brother that he growls at). My brother walked in there, pet him, gave him a treat, and took his food bowl away, but Niko still wouldn’t let me into the living room. So I gave him a treat, but he still wasn’t having it. He got pissy every time I tried to leave the kitchen. So eventually my brother just let me sleep in his room and he slept in the living room with Niko. Haha but of course this morning Niko came barging into my brother’s room and wanted to be my friend again. Probably because he wanted me to take him outside hahaha. He’s a very moody dog.

img_9887-1.jpg

But anyway, he’s fine with me again today haha.

So I am freaking sore from running in the ice/snow yesterday. Probably because I haven’t really done much running since I hurt my toe. Although that’s doing a lot better now. And the elevation here is wearing me out haha. So I figured today would be a good day for a rest day. Plus my dad and brother had to work today and my mom’s not really into hiking or outdoors stuff. So I guess it kinda worked out to not really do much today.

It was super nice outside today thought. So later in the morning I ended up walking 2 miles on the trail near my parents’ apartment. It’s so pretty out there it’s the views of Longs Peak and the lake. Plus unlike my mom, sitting inside all day isn’t an option. So my little walk made me feel better. 😊

Anyway, last night we went to Walmart and had quite the debacle. We got all of our food/groceries and we went to the checkout, got everything scanned/bagged but then both my mom’s and brothers’s checks got declined (apparently that happens a lot with they’re bank). We couldn’t get ahold of my dad, so we drove back to their apartment, but he didn’t want to go to Walmart (he had worked all day), so we never got our groceries. Last night for dinner I had a cream cheese/apricot preserve sandwich. Not bad, but Luke felt bad for me so he had an order of Pad Tia sent to me for lunch. He is literally the best. πŸ˜„

I suppose that pretty much sums up my day. Haha it was kinda really boring. Hopefully tomorrow will be more eventful. πŸ˜‰

Happy Tuesday!

February 26th, 2018

It was another beautiful day here in Colorado!!

My dad and brother both had to work today, so I mostly hung out with my mom. But of course I had to run first. πŸ˜‰

img_9976

Breakfast, because I was too lazy to make Manything. πŸ˜‰

So McIntosh Lake is basically across the street from my parents’ apartment and it’s got a gravel trail that goes all the way around it, so that’s where I ran today. Well, it was more of a run/walk/slipping/sliding kinda thing. It was around 42 degrees and all of the snow was melting, pretty packed down and icy. So that made things a little bit difficult. Plus the elevation is killer! Haha remember I’ve lived in the Midwest my whole life. πŸ˜‰ I was pretty wiped out after the 3 miles I did, but the views of Longs Peak definitely made it worth it!

After that fun adventure I showered, made some grits (oh man it’s been a while since I’ve eaten grits haha), napped for a little bit (haha the elevation seriously wears me out!), and then took the dogs out for a little bit.

Later in the afternoon my dad and brother got home so we hung out for a little bit and then my mom and I went to Walmart. Fun times haha.

But yeah, that’s pretty much all we did today.

Happy Monday from Longmont Colorado!

February 25th, 2018

Alrighty! I wanted to have this post up yesterday, but I had my weekly recap and I was pretty tired last night haha. So anyway, here are all of the fun adventures we had yesterday.

Yesterday I was the first person awake. I tend to be up relatively early anyway, but Kansas is also an hour ahead of Colorado, so when I got up at 7:30 in the morning it was really 8:30 in the time zone I live in. Haha so technically I did sleep in. πŸ˜‰ So I just kinda hung out and played with the dogs until around 9:30 when my dad and brother finally got up. I took my dad’s dog Niko outside while he made bacon and eggs for breakfast. πŸ™‚

After we ate my dad and brother had to move some stuff from the trailer to their garage, so while they did that I drank some coffee, took Niko out again, and then got dressed. Once they were finished my mom got up and got dressed and around 11 ish me and my mom and dad set off to go to the Rocky Mountain National Park. My dad wanted me to see theΒ alluvial fan, so that’s where he took us.

img_9940

It was super cold, crazy windy, and none of us were properly prepared for that. So my mom waited in the car while my dad and I quickly hiked to theΒ alluvial fan. It was mostly frozen, but we could still see some water moving under the ice which was super neat. Oh, and speaking of ice, my dad slipped on it and fell and literally right after he got up I also slipped and fell on the ice. Haha luckily neither of us got hurt.

We looked around a little bit, he told me about the damn that broke and some of the stuff that happened after that (that’s why I like hanging out with my dad, I always learn new things πŸ™‚ ), and then we quickly made our way back to his truck. After that we drove around the park for a little bit and on our way out we ended up seeing a small herd of elk. This was my first time seeing elk in real life, so I was obviously pretty excited haha! I hoped out of the truck and I was able to get really close to them, because they’re really used to seeing people so that was really neat! I also hung out of the window of the truck and took a few photos too.

By the time we left the park it was a little after 1 pm we were all starving, so went out to eat. I ate a whole french dip sandwich. I was impressed with myself haha. After that we did a little bit of shopping and my dad bought me this super awesome shirt. πŸ™‚

We headed home after our little shopping trip, and got back a little after 3:30 pm. I guess all of that sight seeing, eating, and shopping wore us all out! My dad went to take a nap after we got home and me and my mom kinda just hung out with my brother for a little bit, but eventually we ended up taking Niko for a walk on a trail that goes around a lake that’s near their apartment. My mom and Niko didn’t make it very far haha, they ended up turning around going back home with out me. I walked for about a mile and then turned around and walked the mile back home. It was really pretty out there, with the sun starting to set and all of the snow on the ground. πŸ™‚ It also felt really good to walk around a little bit after being in the truck for so long on Saturday.

Once I got home I showered, ate dinner, and just chilled for the rest of the night. I was pretty worn out after all of the days adventures. And probably after traveling to Colorado in the first place haha.

Whew, but that pretty much covers yesterday’s adventures!

Stay tuned for more Colorado fun! I’m sure there will be more. πŸ™‚

Another Long Drive To Colorado

(I wrote this whole post on my phone, so the photos are probably going to end up being stacked and weird, instead of in nice little collages. Sorry about that.)

Alrighty! Like I said this morning, I ended up going to Colorado with my dad! He was in Illinois taking care of some stuff and stopped by my house last night on his way back home. He asked me if I was going with him, and obviously I did! 😊

So we left my house this morning a little before 10 am, after making sure all of the stuff on his trailer was secure. Haha and of course I’m repping all of my Honey Stinger gear. πŸ˜‰ I’ve also got some waffles packed for any running/hiking/adventuring that we end up doing.

So he drove for a while, stopped to get gas, saw a herd of zebras at one point (I’m not even kidding! It was crazy seeing a bunch of zebras in the middle of nowhere Kansas is) and we decided we were going to stop at Toto’s Tacos and a Wizard of Oz museum that we had tried to go to last time we went to Colorado together, but both were closed. It took us about an hour to get there, but we finally got our Toto’s Tacos and got to wander around the museum for a while.

^^ That is a guaco taco. It had so much guacamole on it. It was amazing!

After we had our full of the Wizard of Oz museum, we went to the historic Beecher Bible and Rifle Church. Haha we actually went there the last time we made this trip together, but it’s a cool church so we went back again. πŸ˜„

After that we did more driving. Well, my dad did all of the driving. I’m just along for the ride haha, but in all fairness, he’s driving a company truck so I can’t drive it. We spent a few hours looking at the rural scenery and pointing out neat stuff to each other. But around 4 ish we had to stop at a gas station so my dad could nap for a bit. We were both pretty tired at that point (although I didn’t nap haha). Me because riding in a car makes me super tired, and him because he did a lot of work in Illinois. But we were back on the road around 5 pm.

Around 6:40 we stopped in Wakeeney (I probably spelled that wrong) Kansas to get gas, snacks, and to go to a park with an old plane in it. Haha last time my dad and I made this trip together he made me get in it, so obviously I had to do it again. πŸ˜‰ Yeah, I definitely wasn’t supposed to be climbing in it haha.

After that little adventure we decided we were going to take the scenic route to my dad’s apartment. It added about an extra hour to the trip, and it was already pretty dark, but neither of us were in a hurry to get anywhere. πŸ˜„

After we stopped there we only stopped one more time for gas. Other than that we just continued onto Longmont Colorado. We finally got there at about 11:40 pm (12:40 pm in central time, which is the time zone we started the day in haha), ate a little bit, talked to my mom and brother,and now we’re getting ready for bed! I’m very ready for bed haha.

Your travel worn friend,

Ice Ice Baby

Yesterday the high was 51 degrees and my backyard was a huge, gross, muddy mess. Which means my dogs turned into nasty mud monsters, and were literally covered head to toe in mud. Fun times. πŸ˜‰

img_8851.jpg

You can’t really tell in the photo, but trust me Finn (pictured here) and Dean are so bad that they’ve been sleeping in the computer room to keep mud out of our bedroom. Lily doesn’t spend as much time outside as them, so she’s not really that bad. πŸ™‚

This morning when I woke up, it was pouring down rain, which gradually turned into snow/ice. Ah the joy’s of living in the Midwest haha. But on the bright side, all of the mud in my backyard is frozen, so at least that’s something.

Now, I know it sounds like I’m complaining but I’m kinda not hahaha. Well, I am complaining about the mud, but that’s beside the point. πŸ˜‰ But if you’ve been following me for a while now you probably know that I’m actually a big fan of winter weather. But the problem is ice tends to be a little more dangerous than snow. So with that in mind I tried to get out and get a run done before the rain really turned into ice and before the roads started to freeze over. I was not successful haha.

img_8869

I also realized that most of my winter running gear is super dark. That’s not really a big deal if it’s sunny and clear out, but it was super grey and rainy/icy today. So I had to wear my blaze orange hat over my winter hat. Haha I’m probablyΒ  the coolest runner you”ll see today. πŸ˜‰

Anyway, after I got geared up I spent 10 minutes on my stationary bike just to warm up a little bit, got out the door and immediately slipped on the ice on my front porch. That was when I knew I was in for an interesting run! If you can really call it a run that is! I spent most of my time slipping and sliding all over the place, walking over really icy spots, and stopping for cars. Haha it was kinda fun though, battling the ice and eventually the crazy gusts of wind. AlthoughΒ  thanks to the wind a basketball hoop that’s at the end of a street and therefore right next to the road almost fell right on top of me. That could have been bad. Luckily I got out of the way in time. πŸ™‚ And the whole time I was out there the temperture kept dropping and the road just got worse and worse, so by the time I made it to my driveway I called it good and quit, instead of making a point to hit exactly 4 miles like I usually would. Haha but I mean, that’s close enough. πŸ˜‰

img_8868

After my run I warmed up with some coffee, quickly cleaned my bathroom, and then warmed up even more with a nice, hot shower. I swear nothing beats a really hot shower after a cold, wet run. It felt amazing. πŸ™‚ After that I enjoyed a delicious bacon, egg, and cheese sandwich, and now here we are! Feeling like a total bad ass for braving the ice, cold, and wind. Super cozy in a pair of fuzzy socks and my Longview Half hoodie. And just feeling all together awesome. Today is a good day. πŸ™‚

If you’re experiencing ice/snow/crazy winter weather, have fun but stay safe out there! Ice is no joke!!

Happy Thursday!

I may or may not have had a mouthful of delicious sandwich when I took this photo.Β
