Today’s workout according to my training plan called for 4 miles. I set my alarm last night for 5AM and laid my clothes out. Well, throughout the night I remember waking up multiple times and looking at the clock at 11:30, 2AM, then pretty much every hour on the hour after that for some reason. So I wasn’t feeling my best my alarm went off at 5 and Carl was already up and out the door. I decided to hit snooze and ditch the 4 mile run today and hope for a better night’s rest tonight and rise & shine tomorrow. That old saying came to mind while laying in bed thinking about running: “Some days you’re the statue, and some days you’re the pigeon.” I definitely felt like the statue today.
Carl looks like a total goob. That is seriously an 8-year-old-meeting-a-baseball-celeb-grin. LoL.
*Attention Deficit Disorder kicking in* I’m totally digging this old nail polish I dug out of my nail polish/utensils box last night.
Something else I am in love with today:

I’m enjoying the strawberry banana flavor today mixed with DOLE® Orange Strawberry Banana Juice=perfection.
Next order of business: Carl’s B-day presents. I have found two things to surprise him with. These too cute cufflinks–not only made from a REAL baseball, but a baseball used in a MLB game by the Cincinnati Reds=Carl’s fav team!!! How cool is that?!? I found them via Etsy searching simply “baseball” and these little beauties popped up! They come with a Certificate of Authenticity which lists the specific date and game the baseball was used as well as the original MLB Authentication number from the ball they used to create your pair of cufflinks. I’m pretty excited to see what he thinks of these!
I also was drawn to this print in an 8×10 that I will frame for Carl to hang in his office. He hasn’t decorated his office at all so I thought this would make a good first-pic to adorn his bare walls. **How funny that RIGHT after I ordered this, Carl texted me telling me that he was thinking about making the pic of us with Bobby V the first pic to frame and put on his desk!!** However, he then asks me if I know how to “get it printed on photo paper and look legit”–I say yes, I will take care of it-so another little gift he can expect for Valentine’s day 🙂
That about sums it up for today. Guess I better get back to work for 3 more hours. Better luck sleeping tonight and waking up early to run tomorrow!
