After last week’s truly manic Monday, this week’s drama free Monday was a welcome change. Today was more productive than I had anticipated given it is a holiday week. Thankfully, the day was was pretty smooth. Since I’m exhausted from the busy weekend, it was exactly the kind of day I needed.
My left knee and hip feel like they have a sludge stuck in them causing some pain and friction, hopefully some Aleve will put an end to that nonsense. As I reflect back on the race, I’m still disappointed in my time. Nevertheless, I had to stop running for awhile due to severe pain in my shins. After taking a break for several weeks, my shins are feeling much better. I’m excited to start training in earnest. Unequivocally, I am definitely chasing a new PR.
Meanwhile amidst all the craziness preparing for Sunday’s event, one of our chameleons had gone missing. I am that lucky mom that has both a worm farm and a missing reptile in her house. Are you jealous? Since I was busy sorting shirts and putting packets together, I couldn’t help look for it. Consequently, hubby and Goalielocks looked for an hour to try and find the missing reptile to no avail.
Goalielocks was distraught as the missing chameleon, who escaped when he mistakenly left the cage open, was his little brother’s. Fortunately, the Mayor was at a sleepover that night, so he had no idea his creature had escaped. Moreover, by the time he got home from the race, his legs were so tired that he never went up to Goalielocks’ room to check on the creatures.
Today , Goalielocks’ called me while I was at work his voice was filled with both excitement and relief. He excitedly told me that he had found the missing chameleon climbing in the Mayor’s room. In the background, the Mayor was saying, “wait, what? My chameleon was missing? It was lost? What happened?” Consequently, the Mayor was a little upset that we forgot to tell him his Chameleon had gone missing.
It’s never a dull day in our house. Fortunately, for now, I can remove the chameleon’s from our milk cartons. Not too mention, I don’t have to worry about accidentally stepping on it or it accidentally stepping on me. How was your Monday?
Tonight’s song, in honor of my hubby’s favorite band and it’s co-founder Malcolm Young, is “Thunderstruck” by AC/DC.
