Is it just me or did something recently change with Instagram? It stopped giving me the most recent posts in my feed and instead shows me random posts from random times. I do not like it at all which must explain why I stopped scrolling through my feed.
Don’t think I didn’t notice that the sun is rising later and later with each day that passes. It’s not that I don’t wake up anyway, because I do, it’s the whole waiting to run until it’s light enough that gets me. I don’t run in the dark. Treadmill mornings are approaching aren’t they, this summer is going way too fast.
In happier news, I love my new pair of Energy Boosts. I ran in them both Monday and Tuesday morning and then went back to my usual running shoe rotation plan yesterday which means I get to wear my Boosts again today for my 8 mile run.
There’s nothing like running in a fresh pair of your favorite running shoes!
I realized that I have a free pass for a SoulCycle class waiting to be used. They gave me the free pass back in June when I took my first SoulCycle class. I can’t decide when I want to use it. Maybe one morning next week before my son is back from camp.
Speaking of my son, I spoke to him Tuesday night on the phone. He asked what was going on at home and the only thing I could come up with was telling him that I am still finding chia seeds in the kitchen from when I dropped the chia seeds bag on the pantry floor. At least he knows he is missing nothing important, you know?
Aside from still vacuuming chia seeds in my kitchen (seriously, I am) I have been busy cleaning and organizing drawers, cabinets and closets. I am on a mission to do one a day before my son gets home so that I feel refreshed and ready to go for the school year.
Have I ever told you about the ball bin I have in my laundry closet?
It used to be just the bin I used to store cleaning supplies but then it slowly became the place I stash the balls that get confiscated when my son is caught throwing or bouncing a ball in the house.
This process started years ago. I would grab the annoying ball and tuck it away in this laundry closet bin on a high shelf so that my son couldn’t find it. I now discovered, under all of the cleaning paraphernalia, the ball collection has grown in a ridiculous way.
Please don’t tell my son where all of the balls have been hidden. I really don’t think he knows about this. As a side note, what’s with the random Brittany Spears CD? I don’t know how it ended up in this bin.
Thankfully I get to view photos online each day of my son happily bouncing balls somewhere other than here. I love that he is wearing a sweatshirt. My favorite summer camp days were the days that were cool enough to wear a sweatshirt with shorts to camp!
I tried a new nail salon yesterday. Nail salons are a dime a dozen in my area but a really good one is a gem of a find.
I think I liked this place. Not only was the manicure and pedicure EXCELLENT, they had tons of colors to choose from and the bottles were all new.
Oh, and they offered lollipops. You gotta stand out in this area if you are going to become the go-to referred by everyone nail salon and little things like lollipops will make you a little bit more memorable.
Totally random questions:
Did you happen to catch The Hills marathon the other night on MTV?
School supplies: Were you the type who liked individual binders, one for each subject, or were you the kid who bought one giant binder to hold all of your subjects?
Have you ever forgotten you had a half eaten gel from your run in your pocket only to find it after you washed your running clothes? Yes, this happened to me this week.
