Not So Fun Facts Friday

Fun Friday?
Rest day at last. I am definitely enjoying the day of rest. However, my morning certainly made me think twice about throwing in a boxing or kickboxing DVD.

I went out to start my car to let it warm up at about 6:30. Heath was finishing eating and Maddie was outside going potty (she inhales her food in seconds). I hear gears grinding and tires squealing, so I rushed to the back door already knowing what to expect - my car had been stolen. Yep, gone. Thankfully there was nothing of any value in there. It's a convertible, so I never keep anything in there that would tempt someone to try to break in.

I called the cops and all that fun stuff. Oh, something of value....my keys. To the house, pass to the gym, AND keys to get into my office are now gone. So how does the morning get better? I have to climb the wall to get into my office - it's sort of a cubicle, but the "walls" are higher than most cubes, but they don't go to the ceiling. Thankfully no one else was in the office yet to see me scaling the wall.

Oh and the day gets better of course. It started snowing, really snowing. As of yesterday, they were only calling for trace amounts up to maybe 1 inch. I didn't wear rain boots, I had on cute tall boots with heels. I was also going to hit up the grocery store at lunch because we're seriously low in the food department.

So to set it up in terms of "Fun" Facts, here is how my day went down:
  • My car was stolen
  • Had to climb up on cabinets then over a wall to get into office (thankful no one was there to see)
  • Snowed so everyone left work early
  • Snow also meant no grocery trip as planned (or maybe it was the no car)
  • I couldn't leave work as I had no car and had to wait for Jason
  • Paid $100 to change locks on the house
  • Didn't wear appropriate shoes and forgot a hat or umbrella 
But, I shall try to find the humor or positives: 
  • Scaling walls of office cube is kind of funny, especially in knee-high, high-heeled boots. In retrospect I should have removed the boots first. 
  • It's amazing how high it seemed at the ceiling looking down; I started to panic a bit. 
  • The snow was pretty at least. 
  • I did finally get to go home a little after 12pm when we had to meet the locksmith. 
  • I also have some amazing blog friends who checked in on me. Love you guys!!
 Here are a couple of pictures from our conference room window (10th floor) taken around 11 am. The roads don't look terrible, but they were starting to get slushy. It was really the bridges and overpasses that were causing the biggest traffic issues.
 

The snow stopped briefly only to start coming down hard again. It's supposed to be in the 40's tomorrow though, so it'll all be gone thankfully.

Plantar Fasciitis Woes & Way to Go Wednesday Shout Outs

I wanted to thank everyone again for your many congratulations on completing and getting a PR at my recent half marathon. The support and words mean so much to me.

My legs feel absolutely fine after the race. I could have run yesterday if it weren't for my left foot. So right now I'm trying to heal my left foot. I mentioned that I've been having problems with plantar fasciitis in that foot and that it was the cause of much pain during the race. Since the race, I've been unable to walk on it very well. Lots of hobbling going on.

I've been icing it and trying to keep it elevated. But, I noticed that it's started to get some bruising, not horrible, but worrisome. Not sure if it's better or worse for it to be discolored vs red and swollen. However, this could be indicitive of a tear.
But, my bigger concern with the bruising is that indication that there's been bleeding. Being on Xarelto for the blood clot means my blood doesn't clot very well these days…

PJs n Pizza Recap

What Happened Last Night?
This morning I woke up first at 6:20 when Maddie decided she wanted out of her kennel and to be downstairs. The second time was 8:09 when Heath decided he wanted out of his kennel and downstairs to eat. I won't like, I would like to (needed to) have slept another two hours. It was a little slow going after last night.

Sign of a good party would be my first tweet of the day:  I'm thinking there is a bird in the house...what the hell happened last night???

Yep, found bird poop where bird poop most definitely should not be. Still have not found said bird however.

It should go without saying that last night was a total blast. It was so fun having everyone just be relaxed and comfy in jammies. I am not known for letting loose often, but I definitely went with it last night. There was a bit (lot) of wine consumed, pizza devoured and even some dancing.












Let's Have Coffee

If you're a regular blog reader, I'm sure you've seen similar posts, scenarios if you will, about what we might chat about or what I might say if we sat down and had coffee together.

I think these can be fun. Maybe fun isn't the right word choice exactly. But maybe it is? They're transparent, showing who the blogger really is ... if they're being honest of course. It's not often you truly get to sit down with the person behind the blog.


If we were to have coffee together ...

I would first let you know that I'm not a super fan of coffee. I drink mine with hot cocoa and it's mostly out of habit rather than the need for caffeine. I could forgo it on the weekends entirely.

Since we're talking coffee, I would also let you know that I've never ordered coffee from Starbucks and only once from a true coffee shop. I've only been into 2 Starbucks shops - the original in Seattle and one in town where I ordered a bottle of tea when meeting a friend. …
