how are you today? I hope you had an awesome week.
I was thinking of not doing a Weekly Wrap, because last week was both exhausting AND unproductive. Really, by Wednesday, I wanted to crawl in bed and stay there the rest of the week!
This week linking up with Holly and Tricia.
On Tuesday I had planned to meet my friend Melissa at a Cardio Funk at the Y, I had promised her a while back that I would be joining her there, but many other things kept getting on the way. But on my way there after work, the rain slowed down everybody and traffic was madness. I didn't make it to the class! I was mad. I did weights at home instead.
On Wednesday, I was meeting Roger for hill training, I even left work early, then this happened...
This was my second blown tire in a month! I was already having a bad day, when I found out that my sister's and Mom's Christmas presents had been sent to the wrong address, and the flat tire sent me in a downward spiral of misery. After changing the tire, and driving it to the mechanic, I went home and we had margaritas. Roger made us some delicious blackberry margaritas, he is an excellent drink mixer.
When so many annoying things are happening to me, I start to wonder what am I doing to others? part of me knows that is not how life works, but other part of be believes that bad things happen to those who are awful to others. So I started to be extra nice to others around me.
On Thursday, we were on our way to pick up sandwiches for dinner, and saw that Santa was out meeting kids in the neighborhood! So we got out for a picture.
On Friday, I helped out at my son's Holiday shop and helped kids put their family gifts in shinny bags. It was great!
On Saturday, we stayed at my parents and helped decorating the Christmas tree. I was so tired of being cooped up inside, and started to feel really angry at everything. So, before going to bed, I mapped out a quick short 5 mile run around my parents and lay my clothes out to run early the next morning.
Sunday Morning, I was getting ready to head out, and my brother asked if he could come with me, but that he only wanted to do 3 miles. I agreed and we went running. I felt so much better after the short run!! All the stress of the week, the blow tire, the shipping mistakes, the stress all felt more bearable after the run.
By the way, My entire family says that if I shaved my head, I would look like this brother. He is a twin, but Sister #3 says that I look more like him than his twin. He sent me a Snapchat of him with the "Red Ridding hood" filter, and he looks like me!
|My brother... looking like me.|
At this point, my only hope is that the elf IS inside the book pack, but between the darkness, the cold and the anxiety of not finding the elf in the first try, I missed him. There is no other explanation. I am also scared that the elf is possessed and is at this very moment strangling Roger at his desk. Let me go text him to make sure he is alive.
How was your week?
Where do you think that Possessed Elf is?
Do I need to offer to buy a replacement?
Or, can I just ignored that the whole thing happened and deny the existence of the Elf?
Do you thin my brother looks like me?
Did you go visit Santa Yet?
Did you wrap your gifts ?
