Fun For Friday - Idiosyncrasies


It's that time of week again! I don't know about you, but sometimes I find myself doing things that even I think are a little odd. I think we all have those little idiosyncrasies that make us unique. If you've been reading my blog for a long time, then you might recall that I've mentioned some of these before. So, I do apologize if I'm being repetitive. But, I thought that I'd share some simple, random idiosyncrasies I have.


  • I count. I'm not a math person, but I count, maybe it's a throwback to ballet days. But if I'm running sometimes I randomly start counting and there are certain hills that I count my steps to the top.
  • I'm an expired license spotter. Not as cool as a storm spotter/tracker mind you, but it's a gift I have, well for AR plates anyway. Here they alternate the expiring year with either read, blue, or yellow. So it's easy to spot an expired tag based on color ;-) Jason thinks I'm nuts by the way.
  • I hoard toilet paper. I like to have a minimum of 4 rolls in each bathroom, preferably more.
  • I hoard canned goods. Maybe I'm a hoarder at heart, but I want at least 2 of each of my staple items like 2 red beans, 2 chickpeas, 2 diced tomatoes, etc.
  • I always pull out toilet paper before actually "going" when I'm in a public restroom. This could be a smart thing of course. I definitely know if there's TP or not, so I'm not stuck hoping someone next to me will hand me some TP ;-)
  • I dislike doing dishes, but I'd rather wash by hand than unload the dishwasher. 
  • I'm lazy. I know you don't believe me, but I really am lazy at heart. Maybe that's why I just keep going, because if I stop, I might not get going again. Actually, I get bored really quickly, so that's really more likely the reason of not sitting still. 
  • I love to read, but haven't read a fiction book in a couple of months because I'm trying to make myself make use of my Kindle. But I'm very tactile and want to touch a book, hold the book in my hand and thumb through the pages before deciding if it's one I want to read. I feel totally lost trying to search for an e-book. 
  • Speaking of tactile, when I go into a clothing store, my fingers seek out the fabrics. I almost don't even realize that I'm gently rubbing the various fabrics between my fingers as I pass by the racks of clothing. 
  • I am always cold except when I'm working out or sleeping. When I'm sleeping, I would be very content with the air set at 60 degrees (or lower) and a fan blowing on me. I freeze Jason out at night. 
Ok, your turn!

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.

Are you a quote person? I'd love to hear your favorite quote.





And I can't forget Way to Go Wednesday. Here are my shout outs for the week. Who do you want to give a shout out to?

Kat from Sneakers and Fingerpaints just passed her NASM exam.

Lisa's (RunWiki) husband completed a 27 mile endurance swim.

Carla (aka MizFit) gave away her Strength (A must-read post)

Mrs. StuftMama herself is back to running - slowly but surely after a run-stopping injury.
