Five Things Friday

1.   Back during the summer, I bought a few winter things on clearance from Road Runner Sports.  One of them was this shirt.  Of course it didn’t get cold enough to wear it until November, and then it sat in a heap on the laundry room floor with all my other running gear waiting to be washed until sometime in December.  And it came out of the wash like this!  It disintegrated!  I know it was just a fluke as I’ve ordered tons of stuff from RRS, but WOW.

2.   On a similar note, I ordered some really cool bookends from Amazon to use in my kitchen with all my cookbooks.  They arrived broken.  Heavy-ass wrought iron and UPS broke it.

3.   I’ve had a nasty head cold this week.  I had fever with it the first couple of days, so that kind of cut into my running a bit.  I’m all for running through anything above the neck but not when fever is involved.  Thankfully it seems to be subsiding pretty quickly.  Usually when I get a winter cold it hangs around for freaking ever.  I attribute its early exit to my recent discovery and use of essential oils.

4.   Work is reallllllllly looking up right now.  I’m finally getting a replacement for the employee that was reassigned back in November, so my life is about to get a LOT simpler.  You know.  Once I get her trained the way I want her.

5.   On the running front, I’m on par for 100 miles this month for the first time since December 2012!  I was on the road to it in November and then work happened and derailed me a bit.  Starting The Goofy Runner has given me the motivation I need to keep moving!!!

    1. There are several ways to use them. Some of them are topical, some are ingested, some are used with a diffuser, and some can be used all of those ways. I’m excited to be learning about it!

    1. It won’t be bad! I’ll probably end January with my sponsors donating $17-$18 apiece. Which excites me SO MUCH! When you multiply that by 10 sponsors, that will completely cover the cost of the initial vetting for one dog through the rescue package that the vet offers!


  1. Woo hoo on your almost 100 miles this month! Yay!

    I hope you are feeling better by now! 🙂 And yay for the new employee! How long will it take to train them?

    That stinks about the bookends. 😦 Are they replacing them? I suppose it’s tricky since it’s not Amazon’s fault!


    1. I’m feeling muuuuuuuuuch better. Just still pretty snotty. haha The new girl is catching on pretty quickly, so hopefully she’ll be a good one! Yes, the seller is replacing them! I bought them on Amazon, but it was sold and shipped by a third party. I returned them last Monday, had my refund on Wednesday, and the replacements were delivered yesterday! The bad thing is that I had them shipped to my office and won’t be back to work till Tuesday to get them! Doh!
