Well, that headline pretty much says it all; do we really need the actual post? Of course we do! At least, I do. It turns out to be Tired Tuesday after all, but I will attempt to type a few moderately amusing paragraphs.
I knew all day that I was going to run. I did not even feel that I had to talk myself into it; I was looking forward to it! I think I mentioned that running has all of a sudden gotten fun again. Naturally by the end of the day I had to remind myself that I did NOT need to be talked into running. After all, I’m not a maniac. I even multi-tasked by putting a load of laundry into wash while I ran.
Alas, the run was not as much fun as I had anticipated. It was not a bad run. I enjoyed more the parts in the shade, especially when the breeze was blowing. It was a beautiful sunny day, such as many people adore. I confess to being more fond of a cloudy, gloomy sky. No matter. It was neither as hot nor as humid as yesterday, so I contented myself with that. I did not run as far as I had run on Sunday; I was one minute shy of my next longest time. It was quite the effort going for that long. I mean, most of the run was not at all bad, but the longer I ran, the worser I felt (my computer seems to think “worser” is not a word, but it is exactly what I mean to say). Well, I won’t get into a blow by blow of how I started out unhappy, got a little happier, then got progressively less happy and on down into relative misery (or have I said too much already?), because this is not a real Running Commentary post.
After getting the laundry into the dryer, hanging the non-dryables, taking my shower, drinking my recovery beverage, and checking my email, I reminded Steven that we had to go vote in the local elections. He nicely fixed dinner first.
Everybody in Herkimer, NY had to go to the VFW to vote. I felt lucky to find a parking space right in front of the building. Additionally, there were no lines. Score! I was happy that Steven knew what district we are in, because I can never remember. What cracked me up was that after we filled out our ballots we were to fold them and put them in this plastic tool box with a slit cut in the lid. I love living in a small village!
Civic duty done, we returned home to vegetate in front of the television. As soon as I finish this blog post. I hope to crochet and watch Dateline. Happy Tuesday, everybody.
