Crossed Wires.

So…today was enlightening.

Not that I didn’t already have several examples of how my brain gets it’s wires crossed when my thyroid numbers are off…but it was damn funny finding these examples so right there in my face saying ~your deck of cards is not quite full.

I keep a white board calendar on my door with our rough schedule on it.

Here is a photo of a portion of August…>hint, it has nothing to do with anyone’s name< Points if you see the problem…


Best part?  NO ONE NOTICED. Clearly I’m not the only one off. ::hehe::

About two minutes after I spot this genius move…I head to the fridge to make scrambled eggs.

I have plenty…I have two dozen eggs in the fridge so I grab one and pull it out and…huh. It seems awfully light.



Yes Folks. I put an empty container in the refrigerator. I believe that was yesterday.

Or last week. I don’t remember. Does it matter? It’s empty and I’m not a teenager. So there’s no excuse beyond faulty wiring.



My co workers know that every single morning when I go to work I will approach  my computer, type in my user name and then pause…stare at the computer and say “what the hell is my password?” (I try to mutter it so I’m not irritating every single day).

It usually comes to me then. Apparently I can’t remember it until I say that. I swear every single morning…blank. No password. I use that password probably 87 times a day.

I do math good.


Achilles update: not feeling too bad.  I’m still pretty tired so I didn’t yoga today. But my Achilles are feeling pretty good and I’ll foam roll tonight before bed and maybe yoga, too.

I think the yoga seems to be helping more than the foam rolling but I don’t want to stop either.

Causes of Achilles tendinitis
Tight or fatigued calf muscles, which transfer too much of the burden of running to the Achilles, can be brought on by not stretching the calves properly, increasing mileage too quickly or simply overtraining. Excessive hill running or speedwork, both of which stress the Achilles more than other types of running, can also cause tendinitis. Inflexible running shoes, which force the Achilles to twist, cause some cases. Runners who overpronate (their feet rotate too far inward on impact) are most susceptible to Achilles tendinitis.
Prevention and treatment of Achilles tendinitis
If you start experiencing Achilles pain, stop running. Take aspirin or ibuprofen, and ice the area for 15 to 20 minutes several times a day until the inflammation subsides. Self-massage may also help.
Another great stretch for the Achilles is also the simplest. Stand on the balls of your feet on stairs, a curb or a low rung of a ladder, with your legs straight. Drop both heels down and hold for a count of 10. To increase the intensity of the stretch, keep one foot flat and lower the other heel. Then switch legs. ~source
I really just think I have incredibly tight muscles and it takes serious dedication to keep them from tightening up and causing injury. I thought I was stretching enough and apparently I was not. Also…I overpronate. So…there’s that.
If you aren’t connected to me on Facebook, then you might have missed the little announcement earlier this morning that the Fabulous Miss G ran FOUR MILES this morning without stopping and by herself!!  
I did kind of freak out. Because I’m so proud of how far she’s come and how strong she is. Girl is brave.
I was so bummed to not be able to run with her for this but she was just having so much fun I sat in the car (it’s really dark when we run so I’m there for moral support and company is safer) and watched her head around the park and after the second time she said she felt great and was going around again.
I know, right??
Well okay then… she just totally amazed me today.
There’s no stopping her now.
Girl is out of control.
Run on…

  1. I do not math well but I did see that there seemed to be a particular non sequential element to your calendar. I get that . I made the same mistake in a paper agenda and carried it foreward two more months. I have no excuse.

  2. Yep. That’s it exactly. It’s been that way all month. Honestly not my best move. And that would suck to carry it through that far! I Blame it on the kids.
