Fun for Friday - Least Favorite Commercials

Since I worked from home all of December, I got to see some really interesting tv commercials. I'll agree that some commercials can be cute or funny. But, I typically dislike commercials, and these take the cake.

It's not that the product is necessarily bad, it's the commercial. And with these, it's typically making it sound like you cannot possible function without them. I mean, how on earth have people been flipping pancakes or eggs all this time without this gadget? 

Here's my list of least favorite commercials (disclaimer, if you click on the links they often try to not let you close out. Hit the X button rather than hitting ok or anything like that please):

WaxVac - I mean really, who on earth puts a cotton swab in their ear and yells "Ouch!" that loudly?

Forever Lazy - These are like those PJs we wore as kids, the one-piece have to zip out to potty. Only these are more like Snuggies AND they proclaim easy access when you gotta go. Now, I might want a pair of these, I do like my jammies, but the commercial is so far fetched - a college male student studying in them? Right....

Perfect Pancake Maker - Now I agree, I don't flip pancakes all that well, but the way they make it sound, it's absolutely inconceivable to make a pancake without this contraption.

Ped Egg - Ok, it's just a flat out gross commercial. Even if I need my callouses removed, please do not show that to me on tv.

Forever Comfy Gel Cushion Seat Pads - What irks me about this is that they are touting you can sit all day without discomfort. That's fine and all, but people don't need to be sitting for hours upon hours period. Maybe we should be making chairs even more uncomfortable.

Ok, that's it for now. I could go on, but would love to hear from you guys. What are some of your least favorite commercials and why?

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.












Words of Wisdom

After talking about being stressed yesterday, I thought I would take today to re-read and share some quotes that I find inspiring and energizing. I don't often post a lot of quotes, but sometimes, they really can help change your perspective or give you a new outlook on things.
