Some Days You Have to Laugh

This week was full of those little incidences that you have to just laugh about to keep from getting stressed!!!

Monday – I was hoping to watch some of the Boston Marathon – Screen Shot 2015-04-23 at 8.33.13 PMBut, after spending the morning cleaning the venue, I had enough time to drive home, catch the final 5 minutes of the men’s race, shower and get back to the venue for a meeting.

At the meeting , the couple brought in a baby and a 7 year old girl (she wasn’t in school because she had been sent home earlier that day with pink eye) – the guy told me they were all sick – after I shook hands with everyone!!!Screen Shot 2015-04-23 at 8.48.19 PM

Tuesday – I had my 3 month check with the dermatologist after having some skin cancer removed.  Before I left his office he had used some weird thing to “freeze” about 10 spots off my hands and face and taken a scalpel to a spot on my back to test a “worrisome” spot.

Normally when we have events at the venue I don’t stay.  However, Tuesday evening we had an event that I had to stay for.  Driving home I couldn’t figure out why it seemed like the Topeka drivers were worse than normal.  When I finally got close to home (it is about 20 minutes driving through town) I realized that somehow the know had gotten turned and I was driving without lights on – OOPS!!!

Thursday – I had a full morning of ironing tablecloths lined up.  About 45 minutes into my ironing/book on CD  one of our tenants text me that a squirrel had made a nest inside the wall/ceiling of her apartment.

Not a picture from today - I didn't climb 3 stories up a ladder to see the actual nest!

Almost 2 hours and a full education on squirrels later (thank you Critter Control) I was finally back to ironing for the event that afternoon  – thankfully I finished with over an hour to spare.

See – sometimes it is good to just laugh at all the petty stuff that happens.

What things did you choose to laugh at this week instead of letting them cause you stress?

Happy Friday!!



Today I did a 44, barely!  I did an upright row with the dumbbells at an angle at the top.


I used 12 pound dumbbells and actually struggled with this move.

I think that all week I’ve tried to ignore the ache in my head and just keep going with everything that needed to get done.  Today I can’t ignore it.

My head is throbbing and moving around makes me feel a bit sick so I think I’m done for now!!

Happy Saturday!


Jordan Shared his Sickie Germs with Me!

(Serious issues with my WordPress site today – not making me happy!!!)

Today I did a 43 and that is the extent of my work-out (maybe my entire day!)

I took my BOSU and turned it upside down like this:

upside down - pretty great tool

Then, I used it for one of my favorite moves of all times:  Push-Ups!!!

This was Jordan’s fist demo in awhile (since he was sick and a germ carrier!!!).  I counted each push-up as 1 rep so I did a total of 43 push-ups and 43 jumps!

Yesterday afternoon my throat started hurting (wah, wah…..) and today I can tell I’m not 100%.  Hopefully if I take it easy today (lay around and watch mindless TV!!!), I will be good as new by morning.  Hmmm..maybe I was already a little under the weather yesterday morning and that’s why I struggled so much during my run – That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!!!

Happy Birthday to my sister-in-law and super friend – Stacy!!!!!

Rockin' the Runner T!!!
