I just had one of those moments where you not only realize today is Thursday but you realize tomorrow is already Friday!
If you are a really fast eater who is looking to slow down, try holding your fork or spoon with your less dominant hand.
I burned my left hand the other night while taking something out of the oven which left me standing with my left hand under running water and only my right hand free to feed myself. I am normally a fast eater and also a lefty who is capable of doing many things with her right hand but clearly eating is not one of them.
When you can’t stand the clothes in your closet, you reinvent your look by getting a fresh head of highlights and new black boots for the winter season.
I am all out of place and looking lost in the running store the other night before dinner. I saw my reflection in the mirror and I was like, who the heck is that?!
I felt like an imposter if you want to know the truth. As if I didn’t belong in the running store, as if I needed to shout to the employees I am really a runner! I don’t know who dressed me today!
I did spot some winter workout long sleeve tops that I may need which reminded me that I am super late on this year’s winter workout apparel favorites post but hear me out — I haven’t bought anything new and it’s hardly been cold here (see above photo for the evidence as I am wearing a black sweater over my shirt instead of a winter coat) so I have yet to be wearing my winter running stuff enough to talk to you about it.
Is it just me or do you find yourself taking secret selfies in front of random mirrors several times in the days following a hair cut or highlight session?
I heard this song yesterday during my run and I think I need to add it immediately to my playlist.
Please tell me you remember this song from Footloose? From the scene where Kevin Bacon was racing on the tractor?
Good thing I don’t live near a farm because I would live in fear that my son would think to go racing on tractors with his friends when I am not around to keep him off of such a contraption.
Instead I live my life more like Back to the Future these days, completely in fear of being taken out by a hoverboard.
I still can’t believe I bought this silly thing for my son and to make it worse, he makes me ride it around the house so he can take videos and pictures on his phone of how pathetic I am.
I can run, I can’t roll. This thing is hard!
And because we all enjoy an after hours text from my son, here’s a string of them from the other night:
Lesson for all of us – no matter how many times we try to tell someone how to do something, they aren’t going to do it that way until they feel that way is their way. The change has to come from them when they are ready.
I reluctantly gave up on torturing us both about his homework (read: I yell about it until I am too tired and go to bed).
If he wanted to be a night owl about his homework, that was his problem to figure out. As smart as he is, he needed to learn that homework needs attention, at a normal hour, in order to get done effectively.
Last week I said his after hours texts are his to do list, now I think they have become a diary and confessional.Thinking Out Loud #selfies #lefty #hoverboard #thinkingoutloud @runwithspoons Click To Tweet
Be sure to check out what everyone else is thinking about today 🙂
Are you a lefty or a righty?
Fast or slow eater?
