So i did absolutely nothing yesterday, but here are some other notables from the weekend.
Waffles got to have her "Birthday Party" at Krisers. Seriously, i recommend you register your dog's birthday. She got a homemade PB cupcake and a huge packet of treat samples. Sadly, she was so excited by everyone pampering her, that she got explosive diarrhea, and we had to return home in shame. I also learned i am not ready to deal with children. I hear they poop and vomit on things all the time.
Luckily, she rebounded quickly, and was soon able to eat her pupcake.
Matt and I also decided to go for a run. It reminded me how fun Matt is to run with. When neither of us is training for anything. I hope he will run with me again soon (HINT HINT, I KNOW YOU READ MY BLOG!)
I also tried out My Brooks PureCadence's. It's too soon to know if they are the shoe for me, but I had no problems on the run. And, Matt also runs in PureCadence, so we got to be "that couple"
And Sunday, we indulged our OCD, and cleaned the apartment like there had been an Ebola outbreak. The inside of the couch was vacuumed, the fridge was scrubbed, and every piece of furniture was moved and cleaned behind. The only problem was, when Matt moved my 8 year old Ikea dresser so that we could sweep behind it, the whole freaking thing collapsed. It was completely unsalvageable. Oh well. I suppose 8 years for Ikea furniture is really like 50 years. You served me well, old friend.....
This dresser collapse forced Matt and I to go through all our clothes and consolidate. Needless to say, about half our wardrobe is en route to salvation army. We managed to fit all our clothes into Matt's dresser, with the exception of one last Ikea drawer of running clothes, which Waffles managed to up-cycle into a new puppy bed for herself.
I realized that this clean sweep was just another way for me to avoid dealing with the unavoidable approach of Christmas. It's coming, and there is no amount of cleaning I can do to avoid it. I should probably start my Christmas shopping.....
On a side note, i apologize that I have been completely alienating myself from all forms of social media lately. I am seriously the grinchiest grinch that ever grinched. I assure you, i will return to my booze-fueled, marathon running self in a couple weeks. Until then, Bah Humbug.
