I can hear my daughter and her two friends in her bedroom. I turn to my husband and say something that I have censored because while it's funny it could also be taken the wrong way and be hurtful even though it's not meant that way.
This makes my husband laugh and declare, "I love you!"
Apparently it's an untypical thing for a woman to say. I will add that to my list of non-womanly traits:
1. I hate shopping
2. I really hate clothes shopping
3. I don't know why anyone needs more than 3 pairs of shoes. 4 max.
4. I really hate talking on the phone.
5. I don't know why anyone needs more than 4 outfits. 5, maybe.
6. I'm not telling you this one because it's none of your business so nyah!
At this moment in time I have a TON of outfits because my friend went through her wardrobe and gave me a bunch of clothes. I currently own more clothes than I think I've ever owned in my life.
Of course, none of the above applies to running stuff. I have 3 prs running shoes
- My old old ones which are now my biking shoes
- My old ones which are my everyday walking-around shoes
- My ones that I run in now
I think it's perfectly obvious to any sane-minded person that I need at least one, if not two more pairs of running shoes.
Furthermore, one can never have too many running capris/skirts/tights/trousers/tops etc. I need more.
I would like to qualify the above statements, "I hate shopping, I really hate clothes shopping", adding the rider "unless it's shopping for running stuff."
Though truth be told I have a limit for that too. But I only reach that limit after several hours rather than five minutes.
This is not what I wanted to write for my first blogpost of 2011
But it's what's in my mind. Therefore, it's what is on the page.
There is one unwomanly trait that I definitely do not have. I definitely do not like watching sports. Boooorrriiing. I couldn't care less about football, American football, rugby, golf, basketball, baseball, or any other thing like unto them.
I AM interested in ultrarunners though. And I do really like freestyle motocross. And I'm vaguely interested in snowboarding. And suchlike stuff.
Alright. I had something else to say. What was it? Oh yes.
My other hip hurts now. WHAT THE HECK?!?!?!?!!!!???!!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!
Hellooooooooo - I believe I have 45 miles planned this upcoming week. I don't have time for this.
So. I think I'll just jump in where I am and see how my body holds out. Hahaha. =D If it complains too vigorously I'll slow down a bit. Or not. We shall see what this week brings. This whole training-for-an-ultra thing is an experiment anyway, just to see if I can do it. I'm learning as I go.
I'm shutting up now. For I must plan my menu for next week. Want to know what it is? =) Me too. I'll let you know when I'm done. Maybe. If I remember.
Oh Oh OH!!! I wanted to tell you this last time I wrote but I couldn't because he hadn't officially been called yet - but my dh has been called as Gospel Doctrine teacher. Yeah, my calling! =) Which means we'll be team teaching WHOOOT! Hopefully this means we will spend many spiritual hours together, not that we'll rip each other's heads off in disagreements on which direction to take the class. Haha! And hopefully this doesn't bruise my fragile ego as he's
