Today was a nice, simple Saturday. I was beyond exhausted after the craziness of Irma and work. I ran a little over three miles last night, which marked the 5th straight day of running for the Piggie and I. We haven’t ran outside since before our Norway trip, so it’s been a bit taxing for me as we recreate our running habit. Like many in S. Florida, I’ve been fighting off a cold/sinus bug since the storm. Consequently, I slept like a baby until almost 11:00 am and it felt amazeballs. My sinuses, however, do not feel amazeballs.
I had the distinct honor and privilege of grocery shopping once I finally got out of bed. I’m not even being sarcastic here. I got to have a normal, sort of, Target run today. This trip wasn’t an emergency hurricane sustenance run, but a get our normal Target stuff run. Except it wasn’t our normal Target run because they still haven’t been able to restock their perishables fully. I got as much as I could at Target, and more (thanks Target), but have to make a trip to Publix and BJ’s to get our perishables.
I was loving my newly found freedom to be out and about.. After being caged up for the weekend, which felt like years, it was awesome to be out and about. I made a Kohl’s run. I had to pick up some new sheets for our bed. There is nothing more tedious or boring than shopping for sheets. In addition, to the boring sheets I had to buy I had to pick up some casual shoes with better support for my foot. Who knows what I did to it, but it hurt like a mother pucker this morning. I obviously had to buy a pair in both black and brown. A girl has to have options. Nevertheless, it should be an interesting run tomorrow….
Dinner tonight came courtesy of Goalielocks, who found a recipe for cheeseburgers made from chuck roast online. Goalielocks cut up the chuck roast, grounded it up and formed the patties. I have to say I was impressed with his ingenuity and his drive to make these tasty and flavorful burgers. Moreover, I’m happy to see another one of my boy’s cooking independently – their wives will thank me later. As for the burger, it was delicious. Goalielocks really impressed me with his culinary skills, however, it looks like a burger bomb went off in my kitchen. Baby steps…..
