I felt terrible that Amanda, (our Thinking Out Loud host) had to deal with major website issues this week. I tried my best to help her through the disaster (when your site is going nutty it is truly a disaster) but I am borderline useless around computers. At least I think I am, sometimes I do shock myself when I hear words like migration, widgets and VPS coming from my mouth.
I don’t totally understand what I am saying but really, does anyone? Including the tech people, do they even know? Based on Amanda’s experiences this week, it doesn’t sound as though they do.
I have two cans of Trader Joe’s organic pumpkin sitting behind the peanut butter in my pantry. Was I saving them for something that I forgot to make?
I purposely bought my new Thorlo socks in pink not only because I like the color but because the bright pink helps the socks to stick out in the pile of laundry sitting in the dryer. I am the worst at removing the clothes from the dryer. I prefer picking what I need out of the dryer on an as needed basis, leaving the rest in the machine for another time.
The dark, dreary and snowy days of winter often leave me craving a good hockey game. I sometimes find myself with the feeling of wanting to go to an Islanders game at the Coliseum, walking through the parking lot really quickly because it’s freezing outside, seeing my former college to the left, the start line of the Long Island Half Marathon up ahead and then sitting in the familiar seats with the smell of the pretzels mixed with popcorn mixed with beer. But I can no longer have this experience since my team left me and moved to Brooklyn. It’s not the same going to Brooklyn. It’s just not. Makes me sad.
#TBT to when I was Newsday famous with my top story trending Islanders article last spring. That’s my not-so-little-anymore boy in the picture with Sparky! Click the image if you missed my article and care to read my thoughts on the Islanders move to Brooklyn.
I am considering a midday run one of these days. Otherwise, I will never run outside again. Well, at least not in the near future. While I did get outside yesterday morning for a 5 mile run, it’s going to be so bitter cold now that the temps combined with the ice on the ground is not going to work early in the day at all.
Can I do a midday run? Midday as in 10:00 am or 11:00 am? I really don’t know. I like running early and getting it out-of-the-way. I feel my best running in the early morning and I never know what my day will bring, if I will even have the time to spare. But I may give it a try. Just once.
It’s been six months now since I had greek yogurt. Pretty sure that going this long without tasting plain greek yogurt means that should I ever decide to go back to eating it, I will need an adjustment period back to the taste and texture.
I just don’t like tea. I can’t drink caffeinated tea at all, especially green tea, because it makes me dizzy. And decaf tea? It’s not my cup of tea (ha, I am so funny. Well, I think so anyway). Coffee is more my cup of tea. While I do slightly enjoy Yogi’s Kava Stress Relief tea variety, I really prefer coffee as my hot beverage of choice.
We are still listening to my old CD’s in the car like I told you last week! This week my son has picked my Billy Joel Greatist Hits Volume III.
It warms my heart that his favorite song is We Didn’t Start The Fire.
Tell me if you think these are the reasons why he likes this song so much:
When I was pregnant with him, I used to play We Didn’t Start The Fire in my car (from this actual CD!) everyday under the assumption that he could hear it and it would make my baby smart since it’s all about history. He actually LOVES history since he is a little boy. And is quite smart too 🙂
When he was a newborn and cried all night long (literally – all night), I would sing this song as I paced the house with him in order to stay awake and sort of focused. The words were engaging to me. Maybe he remembers the tune? Is it possible he heard me through his screams?
It’s almost Friday, I am ready. Long weekend ahead!Totally thinking out loud today #thinkingoutloud #billyjoel #running #isles @ny_islanders @runwithspoons Click To Tweet

Does your laundry sit too long in the dryer?
Is it getting bitter cold where you live right now? What temperature is your cut off for running outside?
