I don’t do resolutions. Too wishy-washy. But this year I think my goal will be to not get shot. This goal gets harder every year.
I have not celebrated NYE in several years. By several, I mean at least 8. Maybe more. For someone who doesn’t drink and never has, I tend to have terrible New Years. One year I was pulled over for rolling through a stop sign at 1 in the a.m. I didn’t get a ticket but the cop later told my mother that I smelled like alcohol. I was raging mad because I never drank. Another year my friend locked me out of his house because I left for an hour to hang out with my boyfriend. That same friend ruined another NYE by being all grabby grabby with all of his girlfriends, including me. I can only be smacked on the butt so many times before I explode.
This year was also pretty bad, but on a lesser scale. I went to my coworkers house for a little get together. Brought along Red and RKY. Things were going fine until we there for about an hour and a half and I suddenly could not stop coughing. Then my eyes got really itchy and the left one started to swell. I kind of forgot about my terrible allergy to cats and petted both of hers several times. We left and the sneezing and wheezing started. I came home and immediately downed some Benadryl which knocked me out around 10 p.m.
Today I am lamenting because the display on my treadmill isn’t working. I ran 14 on it this past weekend, then 10 yesterday, and was working on 8 today when it suddenly went blank around mile 7. I did the typical unplug and plug it back in, etc. and nothing worked. I have spent a lot of the morning googling solutions, so I do have a few things to try when I get home. The belt still works, but it has been really clunky lately. I will probably attempt to run in the cold, but when that inevitably fails, I will use a stop watch and set the speed at 8 so I can calculate my distances. Oh weather, please get warmer.
