A little too much enthusiasm for a Monday? Perhaps, but only because today is actually my Thursday!
It’s a short week for me because I’m going to Florida on Wednesday! Mini vacation? Don’t mind if I do!
Soaking up some vitamin D is high on my list of priorities! Now, if I can only cram 5 days’ worth of work into 2. Ready? Go!
This weekend was spent doing a little more birthday celebrating–a family dinner on Saturday night, complete with copious amounts of birthday frosting, I mean cake.
I even saved some flowers for all my frosting lovers out there.
No matter how much I’ve eaten, there’s always room for frosting!
Sunday, I had a leisurely brunch with some girlfriends.
Which eventually led to more mimosas in the bar . . .
Several hours later, we were still in the bar, drinking (water for me) and chatting. Love days like that!
This morning, I was up bright and early to squeeze in a run before work. It was drizzly, but not especially cold when I set out, but the storms we got overnight made things a bit dicey. I was either dodging (or basically splashing through) enormous puddles, or trying to avoid the slick patches of ice not melted by the rain.
Apparently, I need to work on my dodging skills a bit, because lo and behold, I found myself fallen down yet again.
The bad news: Yes, I fell down. Again.
The good news: I didn’t get hurt, AND t think I’m getting better at it.
When I started sliding, I kept my center of gravity low and put my arms out like I was surfing, then rolled into the fall. Perhaps I should offer some seminar on how to fall gracefully, because I think I’ve mastered it!
I would be awesome on this show. Even though I find it highly annoying.
So that happened just over a mile in, which made me a little hesitant for the rest of the run, especially since it was so dark that I could barely see! I wound up running a little slower than I’d hoped, but to stay upright, I think it was worth it! I will also blame my pace on the 5 extra pounds of water I was carrying around in EACH shoe. Puddle, much? Yeah.
Fun stuff. But aside from the water-logged shoes and the semi-face plant, it was a decent run.
Then I came into the office and walked right into an opened door on my desk and almost bit it again. My shin has a pretty purple dent in it. Should be lovely this week in Florida when I’m showing off my legs.
Now do you see why I love her so much? More grace in her pinky than I have in my whole body.
Are you clumsy? I am a bull in a china shop pretty much all the time.
