you can’t leave dessert around and expect me not to eat it.

I made little individual chocolate cakes from an old family recipe for Christmas dessert. There are three or four left because I live with men. I realize that’s sexist but every woman I know appreciates the beauty of a tiny little individual dessert and those little guys would have disappeared within a day or two. Breakfast, snack, lunch, snack, dinner….please, I don’t understand how four days later they are STILL THERE> I also made little cheesecakes and I ate a few but politely left some for Sean. Then yesterday I said…pfft…fool. I am eating one. You cannot just leave it there and expect it to not get eaten. It will go to waste.

It’s all kind of painful to watch. #allthedesserts #amateur

About a month ago one of our employees brought in a camera they found in our parking lot and it took me until yesterday to say to myself…huh…I should put that SD card in my computer and see if I recognize anyone in the pictures. Don’t judge me too harshly. I haven’t had a lot of time this past month.

For some reason…my head was thinking it belonged to one of the 487,000 kids that troops through the parking lot after school. We had found it on a weekday and not on a weekend (thus…church). But of course, school kids probably would just use their smart phone, duh

I plugged that sucker in and BAM. I have a pretty good idea who it belongs to. It’s a really nice camera so I’m glad I took the time to do this and I wish I had figured it out a month ago.

I talked to Catherine the other day and was having issues with my phone. I think it was being fine, the issues were probably user error. I’m sure you’re shocked. So she was telling me all about her phone love. ::sarcasm::

I’m walkin’ through Target and right out of the blue I hear her say…

“I mean, I had to teach the phone ‘pernicious’!”

shutthefrontdoor you did NOT. 

How many of you actually use the word “pernicious” in a text conversation? I’m just curious.

I told her she practically had to teach ME the word pernicious.

That’s an exaggeration. I know what it means. But talk about expecting a lot from your phone. Mine struggles with “that”. I need to up my phone standards big-time.

When I type up my bulletins and newsletters for work they are seen by anywhere from 75 to 125 people. That’s a lot of people that will critique what I’ve done. The person I work with corrects commas and quotation marks all the time but seems to miss that the date is off or it’s the wrong Bible verse marked. Between the two of us we seem to catch each other’s misses.  I have the habit of moving on auto pilot so I don’t actually read it, I just cut and paste. Then when it’s done between the two of us we’ve finished it, checked it over and are confident it is right.

And I print it with that “this is an ‘A’ paper kind of attitude!

sigh.

I used to.

After church on Sunday I get back bulletins with pen marks on them … frequently in red… that show me all the mistakes.

Suddenly my ‘A’  feels like a B-.

Sends me straight back to the 9th grade when I had history with that teacher that used to look over my shoulder as I was writing the answer and then he’d stand up and say as loud as he seemed to be able to, “you’re Wrooong!” with a flourish.

Gee I loved him.

I mean in the grand scheme of things it doesn’t really matter except it does to my perfectionist self. When I go to church I can’t even look at the bulletin because I see all the mistakes. It’s so frustrating.

Two people looked it over carefully and declared it done!

I can never go to college.

Yesterday I got a run in first thing in the morning (it was short, don’t get too excited) but after work I had the house to myself long enough to get some strength training in. That’s just not a bad thing at all!

I have to run to work this morning but I’m hoping to get a run in tonight because it felt so good and my runs are slloooow. I keep moving though because I need to.

I know it’s not exciting to read about someone who isn’t training right now or doing hills or intervals or running 7 minute miles (or ever has) but this is real life. Sometimes recovery takes time. Sometimes Celiac bites you in the ass and sometimes work takes priority for a little while. But eventually I always cycle back around because I’m always running. It’s who I am.

I’m still reviewing what I’d like to do for 2018. I know I never actually decided but that doesn’t mean I stopped looking it means I don’t know how to narrow it down. #alltheraces #allthedestinations #solittletime #denverlooksgood

I'll be back one day!

Run on…

  1. You went to college. You did fine. College students today can barely write or spell. You will ace everything.
