Trying to live a healthier lifestyle; a more active lifestyle.
It’s days like these I need a bf, to clean off my driveway and sidewalk. I have to work tonight and don’t have time between jobs! Help!

Is it sad that I might give up the Drumstick Dash for the Turkey Trot next year just for the sake of getting a medal? (kind of serious) I didn’t realize that race was also a 10K!
No, if I’m going to pay for a race, there better be a nice medal at the end to show off. Yeah, you should do it next year, besides, sometimes you need a change of venue, different course. They need a little work on some logistics. Hopefully next year is better.
As you could see, I just posted about my Thanksgiving day run this morning. There was a little tumblr slacking all weekend. But I was busy!
Did the run, jetted home, showered and jetted up to my parent’s for the day (which translates to the next three days). Had a little post run beer and football before Thanksgiving meal. There were only six of us eating, Mom, Dad, Uncle Lefty, Aunt Purple, Uncle Packer, and myself. Small quiet lunch. After the uncles and aunt left Brother and family came over for a little while. Sister and niece left to go plan out their Black Friday shopping, so Brother and nephew stayed and hung out. Got to play transformers and a Real Steele game with my nephew. We had fun!
Mom and I had planned to go out shopping early, but not super crazy early. We had planned on leaving by 7am. I got up and changed, headed up stairs to the kitchen, then mom said she had an appointment at 9:30, went back to bed. Mom got into something earlier in the week and had been having an asthma attack ever since, so she needed to go. We didn’t leave until after noon. Went to Target, Walmart, then our must go-to Bath & Body Works, checked out a clothing store and got a couple sweaters, then kohl’s. Friday night was the State Championship for my nieces high school football team. We got down close to the field to watch her cheer. So excited for her to have that experience!
Helped Dad put up some Christmas lights. But we messed up which string of lights goes where and he had to redo some of them after I left. Met Mom in White Bear Lake to go look at another store I wanted to look at, Primp. Found a dress, something the Jenny from a year ago would have felt way uncomfortable in. I hope to wear it soon for maybe a possible date. Went out to dinner with one of my aunts and her man and met up with some of their friends. We went to Woody’s in Bayport, then Smalley’s Caribbean Barbecue. Hot wings were tempting, but I stayed away from those after watching the others suffer.
I had to work yesterday, 10-4. Felt like the day was creeping by because I had plans for the night I was pretty excited about. All I will say is it went as well as I was hoping, as well as I thought it was going to go.
That was a super long weekend. Felt weird to be going back to work this morning.
