Fun fact: I can’t cook spaghetti in less than 3 pots/pans.
one for the meat
one for the sauce/tomatoes/mushrooms
one for the noodles.
Then I combine them all together in the noodle pot.
I know, it makes no sense. Chris doesn’t understand it. But, he’s not the one cooking, so he doesn’t have to understand it. amiright?
When I got home from work today I had super great intentions of running a lovely 6 miler on the treadmill. But, sometimes the best of intentions just don’t work out.
I made dinner so we didn’t end up eating at 9pm, like last night and then changed into my running clothes, hopped on the treadmilly and started doing my thang. I stopped to stretch after a mile and then my phone rang, and it was all downhill from there.
My Mom called, and the conversation went like this:
Mom: “Did you run a redlight?”
me: “no, why?”
Mom: “I got a citation in the mail and it shows your car running a redlight.”
oops. Chris drives my car more than me, and I didn’t remember running a red light so I was guessing that it was him. – When he got home we looked @ a calendar to see what date it was and we figured out that we were coming home from Honeymoon Island. – After more discussion Chris remembers accidently running the light and saying, “ut oh, I think I saw a flash. there must have been a camera.” … and then that was the last we thought about it. until today.
So. don’t run red lights. #1 it’s dangerous as hell for everyone involved. Chris didn’t intentionally run the red light, and is a pretty safe driver. #2 it’s expensive as hell. $158 for the ticket.
We deserve it. No doubt about that. We are pro red light camera’s. I think they are a good way to deter people from running red lights. Obviously it can still happen, but I think it’s a good deterrent.
Do you have red light cameras where you live? What was the last traffic ticket you received?
So after all this I really didn’t feel like getting back on the treadmill and finishing the last 5 miles. Oh well. it happens. I’m not beating myself up over it. Tomorrow I’m planning a short/easy run and then Saturday I am planning on doing 8 miles. (slightly nervous about that!)
Happy Labor Day Weekend, y’all !!
