What a Scattered Saturday I had! It included everything but making my blog post (I bet you thought I was going to say “everything but the kitchen sink”)! So here I am, up earlier than usual on a Sunday morning, trying to take up the slack.
I got up earlier than usual yesterday morning, too, with the result that I went running in the dark. I had last run on Thursday, and that run was terrible. It had me questioning my ability to make the Reindeer Run 5K in Little Falls in December. Well, not seriously questioning it. More like questioning how well I was going to run it.
Well, yesterday’s run was AWESOME! I felt my running mojo was BACK! I even added 10 percent to the length of my run, which I had not planned to do till Sunday. I thought it would be a great run to make a Running Commentary post about.
Unfortunately, when I got home, I had a headache. I felt rather ill-used about this, especially since I had purposely NOT tied one on on Friday (despite making my blog post about wine). I had a volunteer commitment at 10 (please be there by 9:30), so this was a problem. I took some OTC painkillers and heated up my face thing. I have this face mask with herbs my Mom got me. You heat it in the microwave and lie down with it. It’s not always the miracle I’m hoping for, but it always feels good.
The headache didn’t entirely leave me, but I was ready at 9 when my friend Kim picked me up to go to the Character Brunch fundraiser for RCIL. I will definitely write more about that later, with pictures!
After I got back home, Steven and I went out to the Waterfront Grille in Herkimer for a late lunch. Another fun time I hope to write more about! Then it was home and on to the Halloween movie watching portion of the day.
Alas, this was when I fell asleep. Not right away, of course. I knitted, finishing a Halloween colored scarf, and enjoyed some Halloween entertainment.
And now I have completed another late blog post. I am quite determined to make my Sunday blog post today. We’ll see how I do.
