Thinking Out Loud – Sometimes


Sometimes my computer screen is so dirty that I think I have typos like extra quotations and periods in sentences when in fact it’s just dirt or  peanut butter.


Sometimes I go to bed excited for the next morning’s run and then wake up to not feel like running. When that happens, I usually run anyway and tell myself to start out super slow and use the exercise as a form of relaxation. This method of mine always works because I end up getting into a groove and going faster without even noticing it gradually happen.

Sometimes when I run I forget I am running and suddenly check back into reality wondering how the heck my legs kept moving so fast and who made them move at all since it couldn’t possibly be me as I forgot I was even doing anything other than thinking.

Sometimes, out of nowhere, I will run out of moisturizer, soap, razors, tampons, shampoo, paper towels and need a haircut (plus highlights) all at the same time.

Lately my skin has been a bit drier than the usual so I picked up this bottle of Alba Botanica Very Emollient Body Lotion which I pump and apply all day long. Love it. 

Sometimes I am hungrier than usual. The other morning I arrived at Pure Barre only thirty minutes after eating my second breakfast and was starving.

Like really starving.

I made it through class with a bottle of water to tide me over and then had no choice but to give in to the Red Mango location that was calling my name a few steps from the Pure Barre studio.

Sometimes you just gotta do what you gotta do.

And, sometimes your son really breaks his thumb at camp even though you are convinced it is just a minor bruise because not every bruise means broken except in our case this week.

Tuesday night was spent at PM Pediatrics having the X-Rays done and thumb wrapped in a splint followed up yesterday morning with an orthopedic appointment where we spent thirty minutes of waiting room time discussing the best place to go for lunch that was in close proximity to the doctor’s office.


We chose Wild Fig which is always a good choice since it is set up cafeteria style allowing you to select what you want in your salad bowl, sandwich or rice plate.

However, if you ask me, Wild Fig doesn’t come close to being as good as Maoz  since Maoz offers a larger variety of awesome salad toppings like their roasted broccoli and cauliflower. Love that.

Sometimes, as a parent, you need to be completely selfless, put aside your feelings and do everything for your child.

Like hold their cup of ice cream still so that they can eat even though it makes you want a bite because you finished yours and still want more but they don’t want to share because they learned from you how to be really selfish when it comes to dessert so you hold out hope that they will get full and leave some over but of course, this time, they lick it clean.

Be sure to check out what everyone else is thinking about today!


Favorite moisturizer?

Ever break a bone as a kid?

    Oh no, sorry about your son’s broken thumb! Champ mama status for holding his ice cream for him, though. I also sometimes have those moments when I forget that I’m running. Kind of disconcerting, but then I start thinking about my brain and how complicated and awesome it is, and that usually carries me through the next couple of miles.

    This is too cute! Especially the last part. I don’t think I’m ready to be selfless with my ice cream yet! Lol! I can’t believe July is over too! It felt like school JUST ended! I don’t want summer to end! I luckily didn’t break anything as a kid but that was mainly because I was practically raised in a bubble!

    Hahahahhahaha that last comment, that is totally my thought process. Whenever my boyfriend eats ice cream, he takes much longer so I end up staring at him, hoping he will give me some of his, he usually does, but I thought I was the only one who did that….or I will offer to take our bowls to the kitchen then get a bit more ice cream on the sly hahha! My damn sweet tooth!

    😆 Seriously lol’ing at the dirty computer screen bit… That was totally me yesterday. I was editing some pictures and there were some spots on them, but when I tried to edit them out, I realized they were just flecks on my screen. And let’s not even get started on how my keyboard looks. You can definitely tell I’m a food blogger 😉 And look at you being a selfless momma! I hope you at least had a cup to enjoy for yourself 😛

      He wouldn’t give me bite. Not one. Usually he will get up to use the bathroom and that’s when I steal a spoonful but that didn’t happen either…Next time I won’t eat my sundae as fast so I can eat it at same time as him lol.

    Poor kiddo!! You are not going to believe this, but I broke my thumb at camp when I was 17. I was a counselor and a gymnastics teacher and totally snapped the thing trying to demo something. It was so bad- I had to have surgery and get a pin put in it! Casts are no fun in the summer 🙁 Hope he heals fast!!
