At 3:30 today I was ready to jump off a bridge. I think I have a serious case of ADHD.. No, seriously, I do. I was so antsy I couldn’t focus on anything for longer than a few minutes. That makes reading operative reports, and consultation notes rather difficult.
I was planning on leaving at 4, but a minor emergency came up, so I ended up staying until after 5 – this did not improve my mood.
Thankfully Chris called and said that he was almost home, which was a MAJOR surprise since he was supposed to be out of town all week this week. He couldn’t have picked a better day to come home! Sorry to get all mushy, but I really needed a hug.
After a quick vent session we changed into running clothes and headed out for a 3 mile run. Yes, WE. Chris has been running for the last few weeks, and he is up to 3 miles – He says he doesn’t care to build up any kind of distance, he is just content being able to run a few miles… we’ll see.
I loved having him out there running with me. It was so fun to have him running by my side – I wasn’t concerned with my pace – I just wanted to run a pace that would make it possible for him to run the entire 3 miles – not because I’m pushy, but because I know he’d be very satisfied knowing that he ran 3 whole miles.
We ended our run at 3 miles, and a 9:20avg ! He even agreed to sign up for a local 5k with me!!!!! After our run we went over some good stretches that he should do after every run to make sure he stays loose and uninjured.
3 miles down, 23 more to go to meet my scheduled 26 miles this week.
what was I thinking when I made that schedule?
I can’t believe I forgot to write about this yesterday: I won’t go into the whole long boring details behind how this happened, I’ll just show you the pictures::::
Chris just got done washing the love bugs off of it – If you don’t know what love bugs are..be thankful, be very very thankful.
It’s a 6 speed, baby!! vroooooom!
Oh yeaahhhh!!! A Nissan 350Z finally found it’s way into my garage, and I am SO STOKED!!!
It’s not new by any stretch of the imagination – but it has SUPER low mileage for the year and it is in immaculate condition..
The story is that a 65 y/o lady drove this car; She took it in to have it serviced and while she was at the dealership she started looking at the new 370Z … either that day or a few days later she ended up trading in the 350Z and bought a new 370Z. I hope to be that lady someday!
It absolutely cracks me up that a 65 y/o lady was driving this car around. That’s one bad Granny!
Needless to say, I’m in LOVE.
If I’m being honest, the functionality of the inside is lacking a little, but what do you expect from a 2 seater car? The cup holders are kind of behind the seats, and there just isn’t much storage. There are a few cubby holes behind the seats, which is great…unless you need something while you’re driving, then it’s kind of inconvenient.
When I saw the cup holders I was a teensy bit afraid that my tervis tumbler wasn’t going to fit – which would be a serious problem since that’s what I drink my coffee out of every morning. Lucky for me (or for the dealership, there is a 3 day return policy) my cup fit nicely. It’s a little difficult to reach for, but I’ll work it out. Sometimes you have to sacrifice a little to have the things you really want, right?
I have a list of things that need to get done:
1. TINT (it’s to hot in FL to be ridin’ around w/o tinted windows
2. new stereo system – a stereo was definitely not a priority when they made this car. My scion had a nice little system in it AND it came with an iPod hookup… I’m spoiled. I NEED some bump in my stereo, and a place to hook up my iPod.
3. new rims… those granny wheels aren’t going to cut it
4. I’m sure there is something else but I can’t think of it right now
If you need me, I’ll be zipping around town in my lil’ car..
