Friday Figgerins

As in… “How do ya figger?” I don’t know why that made me laugh, but it did.

  1. My 10k training was off to a great start but this week didn’t go so well. It has been hot as blazes here in Colorado, and I just couldn’t muster the strength to push a stroller in the heat. Actually, that’s not true: on Wednesday, we set out with every intention of doing a trail run. The trail was very steep, very rutted and very narrow, so 0.59 miles in, we went back to the car and turned it into a small hike instead. It was fun. Anyhow, I was supposed to run 5 miles this Sunday but since I haven’t run much this week, I am making the executive decision to drop it to 3 and call it good.
  2. I am in heaven right now between new episodes of Better Call Saul and American Horror Story. Saul Goodman is my hero. Sometimes when I’m trying to engage with a new client, I imagine him and it makes me smooth and silver-tongued. Andplusalso, did you see grown-up Michael Langdon at the end of episode 1 of AHS? Yowza. I mean, I know he’s the antichrist, but still.
  3. My daughter is currently obsessed with Trolls and while I know a great many parents get annoyed by it, I do not. I dance around the living room with her and sing all the songs. As soon as the movie ends, she wants to watch it again. I can’t blame her: I’m still like that, and I’m old enough to know better. Her bedroom is really dark now that fall is coming, and we went to Target yesterday and got her a Princess Poppy nightlight. She has been taking it everywhere with her and it’s ridiculously adorable. You know what she said last night when we tucked her in? She said, “Can I play with Princess Poppy all night?” We sort of just looked at each other and said, “No honey, Princess Poppy is tired and she wants to go to sleep.” It cracked me up, though.
  4. Our “gentle” potty training method seems to be paying off at least a little bit. I know a lot of people are proponents of the three-day housebreaking method but knowing what I know about Addy, I don’t think it’s a great idea for her.
