Today has been…hectic. One of those days where I wonder how the heck women can work full-time, have kids, AND a hobby (especially if that hobby is running/triathlon!). This post is also going to come cross complainy-pants, just so you know! It ends with some sweet (pun intended) pictures though!
I went to work today, chaperoned the after school acitivity and was home by 4. At which point I tidied up then hit the grocery store. Unfortunately, in a typical ThatRunnerChick moment, I forgot my debit card and had to be that girl paring down my groceries to fit into the cash budget I had ($14.75).
I guess I didnt really need those tomatoes anyways.
Came home, fried up an egg to eat (my first time frying an egg, btw), grabbed the dogs and drove to the vet (Im so messed up I just typed drived instead of drove!!!)
I was supposed to run 85 minutes tonight, but after getting home at 7:15 and sitting in our 58 degree house for 6 minutes, that was the literally that last thing I wanted to do. Most times I can push myself to run and once I start I really enjoy it. Not tonight. Too cold/cranky/tired. So I gave up the ghost, and decided to do what any sane person would do when they ip a run (dont worry, I just moved it to later in the week): Bake cookies from scratch.
Dont fear though, I am no longer seemingly cranky (ie stressed). Not having to do my run when I dont want to tends to do that.
And the fact I have an awesome husband, 2 adorable dogs, a warm house, and a fulfilling job that I look forward to every day. Just the usual.
Oh, and the cookies helped too! And coming at you with a 10 mile run under my belt to make up for todays slacking!!
What does the phrase “give up the ghost” even mean? I just wanted to use it and it sounded right in that sentence. Did it make sense?!
