The Good, the Bad, and the Gross

Good: Awesomely successful fund-raiser on Friday night.
Bad: Stayed up all night until 8:00 the next morning.
Gross: The women who think it's okay to not wear a bra, in public.

Good: Slept until 2:00 p.m. Saturday and then went to have dinner and margaritas on a patio.
Bad: No chemistry with the doctor. (Though the jury is still out on whether or not this is actually a bad thing. Friendship, fun, blah blah, you know.)
Gross: The kooky guy that put his foot on the table mere inches from my plate to show us his ankle bracelet collection. Seventeen years of collecting! Can ya believe it!

Good: Beautiful day at the parent's house today.
Bad: My mother making me look at craft books with her for an hour.
Gross: Macramae.

Good: Steaks on the grill.
Bad: Neighbor leaning over the fence and yelling: "How are you, dear? Married yet?"
Gross: A fly landing and getting stuck in your ice cream. Gag.

Good: A walk with the dog in the park.
Bad: I can't think of anything bad about this.
Gross: People who don't pick up after their dogs.

Good: Coming home and cooking new, experimental recipes. (Added bonus: lunches for the week.)
Bad: Peanut butter cupcakes. Taste great, look like the park where people don't pick up after their dogs. Will have to try again.
Gross: Tofu Shirataki Noodles. I tried, I really did. But they are disgusting, in a gelatinous, don't-heat-me-unless-you-want-a-blob-of-noddles-for-dinner sort of way.

Good: I GET TO RETURN TO RUNNING THIS WEEK! The ankle and the knee are cooperating and seem to be healing. Doctor agrees. Tomorrow: elliptical machine, Tuesday: 3 miles, Wednesday: Conquer the world! Positive thinking.
Bad: Fear that I may not be better yet. Bad thoughts. Bad.
Gross: When people talk about knee surgery.

Good: Recapping a good weekend.
Bad: The weekend is always too short.
Gross: Tofu Shirataki Noodles. Gag! Seriously. They are that bad. Trust me.

Looks like the good outweighed the bad. And the gross was pretty funny so...that was good too. :)

I won't pain you with my knee surgery stories, but I will say that your neighbor and mine may be distant relatives... they seem to have the same line.

Overall it sounds like a good weekend. I can't stress this enough, don't over do it. Now I'm going to say something very unpopular, you should stay on the machine for a week or two before running. Lots of motion, low impact, low stress is the key.

Though, I'm not doctor, I only play one on the Internet.

RGF- Yeah, noodles bad.

GG- My life is often funny. I'll agree with that.

Sizz- Don't do it. Just because something is "only 20 calories" doesn't mean it should be eaten.

Celina- I know! Do they honestly think I would keep it a secret?

Bre- They are all over. It's madness!

JACC- After the time I spent on the elliptical today, I think you're right.
