The other night my son and I went to the movies to see the hockey documentary, Red Army.
I can’t begin to tell you how much I enjoyed it and I also can’t begin to tell you how many times throughout the movie I reached for my phone to text/email/speak to that person I no longer speak to because every scene sparked something for me to tell him.
My brain just kept forgetting that we are operating under the notion of he never existed but that’s just easier said than done!
After going through a divorce which is something you can’t move on from as if the person just didn’t exist (especially when you have a child together, HELLO), I like to think that anyone you weren’t married to (or don’t have a child with) is that much easier to forget as if they were never in your life but that is all nicer in theory than application.
I am rambling about this to you today not just because it’s Thinking Out Loud Thursday but because I am pretty sure that even if you don’t like hockey (which I don’t understand but okay) you have had these moments too where you see something, hear something, breathe something or do something and you reach to tell a certain someone but then realize you no longer speak to that certain someone because that certain someone is now just someone who you used to know.
Yeah, like the song….Now you’re just somebody that I used to know…
It would have been nice the other day if one of the many Poland Spring bottles in my car actually contained water.
I try to remember to bring water with me every day (especially on long run days because gosh I am thirsty in the hours after long runs) but my brain just keeps forgetting the fresh bottle at home.
I make a really good attempt at preparing the water bottle to leave the house with me but what usually happens is that I leave it sitting by the front door instead.
I sometimes hope for a splash of water left at the bottom of one of those bottles in the car but no such luck lately and really, I need to remember to remove those empty bottles not just because I want to recycle them for the sake of humanity or for my five cents but because they roll around and really annoy me while I drive.
Do you use the coconut oil cooking spray from Trader Joe’s and if so, does your bottle get all clogged up every single time?
It never fails that my bottle clogs and I can’t spray at all without taking the little yellow nozzle thing off and do you see the mess all over the top of the bottle? Total disaster this spray, total disaster.
I have been meaning to talk about this with you for too long now because it frustrates me beyond yet I always forget to mention it.
But if it frustrates me so much, why is it that I forget to tell you about it?
Isn’t it funny how that happens, you think something is such a big deal and then it slips your mind completely…
Like the shower. I never want to get out of a hot shower on a cold morning. Making that transition between shutting the water and getting in a towel while shivering is not fun and makes me crazy just thinking about it.
I stand there under the running water, contemplating the right moment to shut if off, knowing there isn’t a right moment and I am going to have to just do it and deal until I get comfortable again.
But then I am out of the shower and immediately focused on something else entirely (like what to wear, that’s a whole other chapter in my insanity).
And then there’s getting out of bed in the morning. Sure, I am a morning person but even morning people don’t want to get up all of the time.
Sometimes I tell myself that if I am still tired after the morning routine (breakfast, blog, Pure Barre, get my son ready for school, run, shower, eat) then I can just work from my bed for the day.
But it never happens. Once I am up, I AM UP, forgetting I was ever tired.
Speaking of bed, do you ever wake up in the middle of the night or in the morning thinking that you are in the bed from your childhood? Or the bed from college or in your bedroom in the house you used to live in?
Isn’t that so weird? Sometimes I wake up expecting the bathroom to be on the other side of the room or to roll into the wall as I used to when I was a kid and then sometimes, I just look around and say, wait, where the heck am I?
If I am lucky, these crazy thoughts wake me up just in time for breakfast.
I really love my first meal of the day. And I really love that you listen to me ramble — you guys are the best!

Do you have empty water bottles rolling around your car?
Ever wake up confused as to where you are?
Talk to me about the coconut oil spray bottle?!
