I ran four miles tonight. Outside. I can’t even remember the last time I ran four miles without walk breaks. It felt amazing.
Internet wins and random good things.
Good job, babe. Congrats!! ❤️
It’s almost 4 pm, and I’m just starting to feel functional after having way too much fun last night.
This bottle of tequila was unopened when we arrived. Enough said.
And then also:
We did a pizza tasting. We got pizzas from 8 different places and did the usual blind tasting; then ranked our results. It was really fun, and interesting to see who liked what without having any preconceived notions.
There were also fancy desserts:
We continue to talk about the Napa trip we’ve been wanting to take. Though who knows when we will be able to make that happen given everything. *sigh* I’m really hoping to travel again in 2021. I don’t have time to waste!
Anyhoo – it was another super fun night with our besties. I’m excited for the Halloween party! It will be tiny this year, with just six people instead of the usual 30-40, but I honestly think it will be more fun that way.
I’m off to read. My friend wrote another book, and I’m really enjoying it.
So Jenn says that Dave is not qualified to represent the LBC.
But Dave says all the people on the dance floor agree that he’s well qualified to represent the LBC.
My joints, particularly my knees, really hurt today, and I’m overall kind of bummed about a variety of shitty cancer treatment related side effects. I’m hoping that hanging with C&J tonight will distract me enough that I’ll forget about it for a while.
I cried myself to sleep last night. 2020 is just too much.
I just dropped Bizzy off for playtime and boarding. We’re celebrating J’s birthday tonight, so we will be out super late, and I don’t want him to be neglected. While at the doggie daycare, I felt envious. I’d love to work with pups all day. What a fun and stress free job.
In reality, I could never do that long term. I know myself. Still – it’s fun to day dream.
The weather outside is delightful, and I’m contemplating an outdoor run, though my knees are still swollen so it’s probably not a good idea. Maybe just a walk. That sounds good actually. I’m beginning to think my running days are behind me. Sigh. Maybe I should start hiking? Biking? Maybe I’ll ride Freya’s bike. She never uses it.
I’ve been way in my head recently. I haven’t been talking to friends much. I feel bad about that, but sometimes you have to work on yourself first. I’ve needed a lot of quiet time. I’ve been reading a lot, playing games, and watching things. I’ve even cut back on my drinking. I was exercising a lot more too, until my arthritis flared. I’ll get back to it when it’s over. This is going to be the season of self-care. If not now, when? And since it’s finally getting cooler, I’m going to enjoy a nice bubble bath at some point this week.
Right now I’m cuddled up with my sweet Sansa, and plan to relax with a book. (Duh!) We will be out late tonight, so I have to rest up while I can.
Before the bad news.
