Getting my watch ready for running today :D
I’m actually FREAKING OUT about this run. Not because I haven’t ran in ages, or been practicing running in the cold. Not because my lungs will probably feel like shit and my legs will turn into jello after. Not because I’m probably gonna be slow and wishing I was dead. I’m freaking out because I’m terrified that during and/or after this 1 mile run I’m going to re-injure myself. I have given myself 8 weeks and 2 days to heal. Over the past week I haven’t experienced any pain with my left foot. My right foot has been ready for ages. I’m just so scared that the moment I start running I’m going to fracture my foot all over again.
Getting my watch ready for running today :D
It seems like every single person I am following is located in a snow globe. I however am not. This is the closest thing we have to snow- frost. The only nice thing about frost is that is sparkles. Otherwise there isn’t even enough to slip on.
Welcome to Georgia.
So way back when, when it was our birthdays, Taylor’s dad got us a gift card to the Lake Lanier Islands Resort. Well four months later and we are finally using it. We booked a night up there in a private villa for New Years Eve. It’s going to be great! We are gonna bring a nice bottle of wine with us, go ice skating, see the Christmas lights, use that bathtub, and celebrate bringing in the New Year together :) We even have enough money left over for a nice dinner, or breakfast in bed ;) I’m super excited- and nice thing is is that we are only 5 minutes away from the boat so it won’t be the end of the world if I forget something.
Hahah, good point! Hopefully there were just buying hot chocolates with their babysitting money, but ya never know. That church did have two coffee shops so they might be starting early.
Co-workers are the best :)
I’m more excited about the cute Christmas Tupperware than the stuff inside.
The ornament I got for the little one. It turned out perfect! I love everyone on Etsy so much 😊
So, I’m not normally one to bring up this topic, as it always turns out to be a heated deabte and I don’t care for that, but I need to rant about this so I’m doing it here. I would put it in a link, but I don’t know how to on my iPhone.
I’m not religious. I don’t believe in God, never have and I never will. Taylor also doesn’t believe, which makes our relationship much less complicated. I don’t care if you believe- I’m not going to try and change your mind, and as long as your believes don’t effect me we can be best friends forever.
So, yesterday evening we went to Taylor’s daughters church to watch her in a play they were putting on with all the kids. She didn’t really have any big role since there were like 100 kids up on stage (it’s a massive church, the kind that looks like a school from the outside or something, not a tiny, traditional church). Anyways, they did a skit with about 4 or 5 girls in it, about ages 11 or 12 (not that age matters, and I could be way off as I suck at guessing ages), and I’m not sure if their attitude was part of the skit or just because of their age, but they went on to talk about how they don’t like people telling them Happy Holidays, and that it is Merry Christmas only. They then went on in their snarky little tones with hands on their hips talking about how they went into a coffee shop and the barista handed them their coffee and said happy holidays, and they proceeded to say that Merry Christmas is all they need and that “we” can’t take that away from them. We then had to watch them sing and dance this out, further pressing the point that saying happy holidays is not right and that it should always be merry Christmas, and pushing the fact that “we” can’t take that away. The guy behind me decided to add a “yea that’s right!” at the end.
Now, I don’t care what you say- Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, Happy Hanukah, whatever. This type of stuff doesn’t bother me. However, when the skit was over, I turned to Taylor and said “it’s called being accepting of everyone”. He looked at me and said, “What about Thanksgiving?”
I’m sorry, but since when is saying Happy Holidays such a terrible thing? I just couldn’t believe I was hearing all this and that these kids are being taught this message. I mean, the point of saying happy holidays is that it includes all holidays around this time (Thanksgiving, New Years, Christmas), and it includes all religions, and those that aren’t religious. I found it very offensive that they were basically talking about how offended they are as Christians to be told Happy Holidays instead of Merry Christmas.
I don’t know. Maybe I am overreacting about all of it, but I was just waiting for somebody at that church to say Merry Christmas to me so I could give them a snarky Happy Holidays back. Like I said, you can say either to me, cause I really don’t care, it just ticked me off that they decided to make it a giant issue to preach about in church and to teach to these kids who should be learning the message of accepting everyone and respecting their views.
NOT EVERYBODY CELEBRATES CHRISTMAS.
Okay, I’m done. It feels good to get this off of my chest. It’s been driving me insane.
It’s pouring outside right now, so I am snuggling with myself in bed while watching Modern Family. Taylor is out helping a friend with some electronic stuff. I just applied for a job at the company I’m currently temping at. I already know i’ll get an interview, just hope I get the job!
Went and saw Out of the Furnace last night. It was slow, and not all that I was expecting, but it was still very good. Very emotional. I was feeling all bummed out afterwards, so we came home and watched Warm Bodies. I lasted like 20 minutes before falling asleep.
I did more Christmas shopping Friday. I’m officially broke. I got Taylor even more stuff, so I have definitely spent way too much money on him. Ain’t he lucky? Also, I hate having to spend money on wrapping paper, and bows, and labels, and bags, and tissue paper, and tape. UGH.
Oh, but Taylor and I have tickets to go see Young the Giant in February! WEEEE! CONCERT :D
Ok, I think I might go back to bed.
I have this issue where I can’t leave target without grabbing as many DVDs as my hands will allow.
THEY WERE ALL SO CHEAP!
You didn’t see the big debut? He got tired of all that beautiful hair, and got his daughter to shave it off.
Just a typical night opening our advent calendars :P
So I haven’t done one of these in while.
This was from our Easter Beach Run in March. 4 very painful miles for me. This was my first ever run barefoot- I don’t even think I had done any training 1/2 miles before this. I got a blister less than 1/2 mile in and it took everything in me to not run into the ocean and give up. It was SO painful, but I kept running, thanks to Taylor, and we finished in a decent time. I still beat my mum and dad, which is all that matters right? :P Taylor had to carry me pretty much the rest of the day, but we got some sweet medals out of it. We plan on doing this one again in 2014!
