Chicago Running Blog Lyfe Thinking Out Loud

Currently Thinking (Out Loud)

Sure, some people do the good old Currently (books, music, etc), but if you want the real nonsense that goes on inside of this gourd of mine, well, you asked for it.

A thank you to Ms. Amanda, our ever spoonful hostess.

Currently, I am sitting in my office listening to band, table, pipe, and GOD KNOWS WHAT ELSE (sorry, had to shout about the noise) saws going on the other side of my normally completely quiet office. As Heather said (so perfectly) “How rude.”

Currently, my never-closed office door is shut, my Pandora is on full, and yet I still feel like they are hammering on my skull. HOW RUDE.

Currently, I am thinking back to this morning (being Wednesday when I am writing this), and how ironic it is to me that I was tired after an easy C1 class on Monday (having not practiced in a week), took a full rest day on Tuesday (with Remicade, I decided to just bask in the laze), and that how the first day back at running is always so much harder to me than if I were to run for 27 days in a row. You spend the first miles getting the kinks out, getting the lead out, and then by the time that you are finally feeling a little bit with it, you finish so as not to hurt anything. And yet, you don’t really want to go any further, and it took all of your brain power just to do those miles. And you have 20 more to do come race day. GULP.

Currently, I am thinking about how obsessed I am with Elsa’s dress and Olaf the snowman. Yes, folks, we finally watched Frozen last night. It was great fun, and I looooove me some Olaf. Even if he basically was an unnecessary character. But I’m glad that he was there.

And Sven the reindeer? Mom, he is Galen. I promise. In the same way that Pegasus and Donkey are Brian, Sven is Galen. Also? My husband is a ninny: I totally called what would happen (each and every event, seriously) and he kept saying, “nooooo, it won’t” and then “well, I didn’t see that coming.” Has he never seen a Disney movie before???? Amateur.

Psst. Also, last nights Gluten Free Quinoa Chicken Parm was maybe my best yet. Seriously. FIST PUMP.

Currently, I am happy to have some real work to dig my teeth into. I am basically coming up with a marketing strategy based on demographic information from our clients (so that we can demonstrate market appropriateness when shopping ourselves to potential corporate clients and also know where to focus our energies in the future). So, basically, as I told Cailtin yesterday, “not my jurisdiction but sure why not.” It sounds important at least.

Game on.

Game on.

Currently, I am wishing that the Chicago Association of Realtors would hurry the F up and go through my unit tests so that I can take the final exam. It took them a week to do 1. I have 5, at this rate, I might be taking my exam the same time as my marathon. That would BLOW.

Currently, I am wishing that Laura was still coming in tonight, but I understand that family comes first. But I’m still pouting over here. I could have made her some Chix Parm. I was also thinking we could go to Vora…. le sigh.

Currently, I am hoping that Alex and I aren’t making any of the Renter’s Mistakes in this article. I don’t think that we are, but still…

Currently, I am also wishing that I could find some $$ so that I could go up and meet Ange for the Championships weekend at Spruce Meadows in a month, but right now I am thinking that a staycation might be more likely to happen than even a mini vacation.

Currently, In addition to Calgary, I really want to go to Berlin and poke around. We just finished PBS’s Nazi Superweapons and the last one was on Fortress Berlin. I’ve read some about Berlin, so I am aware of all the periods of building that exist within the city, and I would love to go and explore.

Currently, I am liking the whole Alex and me continuing to have time together bit. As long as he continues to clean and do the laundry, that is 😉

DO MY BIDDING FOOL

Currently, I am being lazy and avoiding walking up the stairs, but I should probably go do that (which is a work thing) instead of blogging.

Currently, I am just now noticing that the construction quieted down a ton. No wonder I could hear myself think.

Currently, I am wondering if I took my pills. I honestly can’t reme——–

Dammit.

I was wrong.

Do you ever find yourself comparing your animals to Disney characters?

CAN YOU HEAR ME OVER THE SOUND OF THIS CONSTRUCTION????

Tell me one thought that you are having right now.
