Because three things is pretty much all I can muster right now. Why yes, I did just pull the pathetic ‘I’m sick’ card. Yes. Yes, I did.
1. I’m sick.
Craig brought with him one nasty virus. I’m glad he feels comfortable enough to share everything with me, but had he chosen to NOT share his cold germs, I would have been okay with that. I skipped the gym today because I figured it would be prudent to do so. Too bad I didn’t think skipping Tuesday or Wednesday would have been prudent, as well, because I’m pretty sure if I had chosen to skip Tuesday or Wednesday, I probably wouldn’t be in the predicament I currently find myself in. Which leads me to point number two….
2. I’m stupid.
Rest is important and I never quite grasp that fact until it’s too late.
As an aside, I’m starting to mildly panic because I have a half marathon on March 17th and I haven’t really run more than six miles in quite sometime, all of which have been on a treadmill. This half course is slightly hilly and I REALLY need to get myself outside and running real roads and real hills. I was hoping to do that today, but, because I’m stupid and did not rest earlier in the week, I’m currently out of commission.
3. I’m brain dead.
Last night, as I was lying awake on the couch, coughing and cursing Craig for gifting me with this sickness, I decided I should make chili for tonight’s dinner. I gathered the ingredients this morning, only to discover I was out of tomato sauce. Which proved to be not so much of a big deal; since I’m home and not running like I should be, I decided to ride on over to the commissary after I dropped Caroline off at school to pick up some tomato sauce. On the way out of our subdivision, I decided instead to go to Walmart because I also needed pins for a second Valentine themed yarn wreath I’m making.
Guess what I forgot to buy?
I did, however, buy the necessary tomato sauce and also some pineapple cream cheese (yum!) and new pillow cases, which were not on the list. If I had made a list, that is. For if I had been wise enough to make a list, I probably wouldn’t have forgotten the pins.
I’m a mess. But that’s nothing new.
And now I shall drink some tea.
