Front Porch Adventures

Yesterday did SOOOOOO not go as planned. But that's a Monday for you, right?
Also, I COULD be being a little bit dramatic but...nahhhh totally not.

First, I worked for 10 whole hours.
11 if you count the commute.
Let's not talk about it.

I was super stressed out when I got home and ALL I wanted to do was go for a nice long 3 mile run.
Yes, 3 miles seems long to me right now, don't judge.

So I got home, put on my running clothes and I was on my way out the door when it started raining! Keep in mind, it had been SUNNY ALL DAY LONG. At first I didn't even care, it's just a little rain, and I WAS GOING TO RUN ANYWAY, DANG IT! (where is that motivation normally? seriously, I was determined to go for a run!) but my mom informed me that it was actually a big ole thunderstorm rolling in.

UGH. Lightning = treadmill. It can rain on me all day but I really didn't feel like getting struck by lightning. That's not on my list of things to do before I die.

Me and the treadmill are no longer friends. I have absolutely no idea how I basically trained for a half marathon on that thing. I ran a 10 miler on it once....and yesterday I was ready to poke my eyes out after 2 miles.

After my lame 2.2 mile run (it was all I could handle) I had planned to go to the grocery since it never got done this weekend with all that sleeping I did. But I checked facebook during my cool-down on the 'mill and all the statuses suggested that there were tornadoes everywhere.

So I decided I didn't want to be stuck at Wal-Mart with all the People of Wal-Mart if one of those tornadoes decided to touch down.

So then I got home and the garage door wouldn't open and I was all like Why did B lock me out of the garage?! I didn't do anything to him what a butthead!!!! until I noticed the neighbors were chillin' in their car in their driveway too. Unfortunately for them, they had legit locked themselves out of their house because for some reason they don't carry a house key with them, they just go in through the garage... except you can't do that when the power is out!

Our power never goes out since everything is underground! But it did. For like 6 hours. And since we are all spoiled civilians we had no idea what to do with ourselves. We were forced outside where the light was, so we spent some quality family time on the front porch.

Lola got a mani/pedi -- or wait, would it just be a pedi?

She did really good until the last 2 nails and then decided she was done. The last 2 took longer than all the others combined.

And Kosmo waited his turn.. patiently. He knew what was comin'.

Afterwards 2 good doggies got treats.

And THAT was our terribly exciting Monday evening.

I missed The Bachelorette. Lame.

At least I didn't make it to the grocery...everything might have spoiled. But dang, now I still have to go to the grocery :(

Needless to say, the diet will start tomorrow. Wednesday seems like a fantasticly random day to start a 7-day diet, don't you think?

At least I did make it to bed by 10.... pretty sure I was in bed at 9:15. One plus of the power being out, I guess.

Maybe Tuesday will be more exciting and productive... let's hope.
