In case anybody was wondering, I have not been running since last Tuesday. Excuses are tiresome, so I offer none. I finally ran again today. Sort of.
I had planned to run, but as the day wore on, my bunions kept telling me it was going to rain. My bunions are usually a day ahead of events, so I suspect it will rain tomorrow. Why is that a problem? You see, Steven (my husband) plans to mow the lawn tomorrow. It totally needs it. He can’t do it tonight; he works too late. I really, really wanted the front lawn mowed. It was beginning to look like we were some skanky rental property (please note: I am NOT saying that ALL rental properties are skanky; some are delightfully maintained. I’m saying our front lawn was starting to look like one of the skanky ones).
To run or to mow? I’ve done both at least once. I was in much better shape at the time, running faithfully. I ran then thought, “Why waste the sweat?” I got Steven to start the power mower for me and I mowed that damn lawn.
Ah yes, that is a point I should mention. I am unable to start the power mower. For me to mow without Steve, I would have to use the non-power mower (I can’t call it a push mower, because we push the power mower), which I purchased for just such a situation.
This is getting to be a long story, and not very interesting. In my defense, I did mow AND run. Sadly, I only mowed the front lawn and I only ran for 16 minutes. In my defense, non-power mowers take a lot of effort. I mowed first so I did not have much oomph left for running. Now I am just about as tired as I usually am when I make a Tired Tuesday post.
So I’m afraid this is it for today. It’s too bad, because I thought of some pretty amusing stuff while I was mowing and running. If I can remember them, maybe I’ll include them in tomorrow’s blog post. As always, I hope you’ll stay tuned.
