. . . .would you?
I’m Thinking Out Loud about going back in time, although there’s always a tradeoff, isn’t there? So many things in my life I love right now would not have been in my life back then. I’ve always been fascinated by time travel: I love the tv show “Quantum Leap” and “The Time Traveler’s Wife” is one of my favorite books (too bad the movie was rather disappointing).
That is how many emails it takes to put me over my mailbox limit. At one time I think I had it cleaned out to maybe 100. Sigh.
Apparently cleaning my home isn’t the only thing I don’t like to do.
Careful what you say
Just last week my husband asked me if I was still happy with my 16 yr old car. It has less than 60,000 miles on it and it runs great, so the answer was yes.
In fact, I bragged about it at my Weight Watchers meeting the next day.
The check engine light came on as I headed home that day.
Thankfully not something serious and my husband was able to reset it (did you know there are readers for those warning lights that give you the ability to reset them?).
And Speaking of Clothes . . .
Yup, after sharing my one sale purchase from The Gap last week, I went in search of that dress at the other Gap. I didn’t find it.
But I didn’t walk away empty handed.
In fact, the sweater on the right cost me $2.50 and the coat on the left cost me $15. Every Mr. Judy was impressed.
Of course he said a real deal would have been if they paid me to take the clothes off their hands.
Yet I found myself wishing Monday that I could go back in time 9 years — to a time when all four of our animals were still with us and still healthy. I just miss them.
But if I went back in time, I wouldn’t be a runner, I wouldn’t have run halfs in 9 states (and one other country), I wouldn’t have made some of the awesome friends I’ve made since I started running and blogging.
Best running blogs
Seriously, I have no earthly clue how I made the list of 100 Best Running Blogs, which includes some blogs I’ve been following for years, long before I ever started to blog. But thank you!
There are many great running blogs on this list, and I’m not just saying that because I made the list — as I said, some I have been reading for years. So if you’re looking for some new blogs to read, you might check some of these out.
I never find money on the run. Never. I think I’m just too unobservant.
Darlene and Barbara spotted at nickel on the ground at the Celebrate Life Half. Yet I was the one who picked it up.
Then just a few days later I found this quarter in this box of Brooks (which I did not buy, by the way).
You know, they say things run in threes . . . maybe I ought to buy a lotto ticket?
Gizmo is a very determined cat
He’s really a sweetheart, but when he wants something, he goes after it. He has to climb over the mountain of old running shoes, the couple of boxes of out of season clothes, and the in-rotation running shoes to get at his crate we keep in the bedroom.
Now if only he would cooperate like that when it’s time to go to the vet.
Going through her paces
Whenever I take Lola to the vet, we go through some training. She gets treats, so she has a somewhat good association with the vet. The little video above was taken from our last vet visit.
Chester always knew training was coming when we got into the room, so he’d just start offering tricks. Lola is usually too busy sniffing around for errant treats. But she’s happy to perform for treats.
How much money have you found on the run?
I’m linking up with Amanda at Running with Spoons for her:
