Well, I got a positive pregnancy test this morning…and started bleeding 5 minutes later. 6 miles hurt and I’m refusing to get out of bed until work on Monday because any position besides laying down makes the cramps worse. This is officially getting tiresome.
Sidenote: Someone just Tweeted this link about (in)fertility etiquette and all I can say is OMG, YES! Read it and stop asking married people when they are going to have kids for the love of all that is good and holy.
In other news, the anniversary was very nice, but we were about 40 years too young for the restaurant. I’m pretty sure everyone else there was old enough to at least by our grandparents. The food was decent, but I’m not sure we’ll go back just because the atmosphere didn’t do anything for us. That day for lunch, however, my lab went to The Thurman Cafe (everyone calls it Thurman’s). Thurman’s is famous for the Thurminator, a burger that consists of “Bottom bun, mayo, lettuce, tomato, pickle, banana peppers, 12 ounce burger, bacon, cheddar, another 12 oz burger, sautéed mushrooms & onions, ham, mozzarella & American cheese, top bun served with fries”
I had the blue cheese burger, which was 12 oz of beef covered in blue cheese dressing, lettuce, grilled onions and pickles. I think I technically had two cheat meals on Thursday, but the wait for Thurman’s is at least 40 minutes, so I felt like this may be the only time I got to eat there. Sorry, Rebecca.
On an unrelated note, has anyone ever gotten back pain from their hydration belt? I settled on an Amphipod 2 bottle belt, which I love, but I’ve noticed some crampy feelings right under the belt. I’m not sure if it’s the belt or my bad back, though. I am really tempted to get a Camelback for the summer, because I drank about 15-17oz of fluid on my 6 mile run+8-10oz at the water stop+10-15oz when I finished. I think when I hit 12 miles I’m going to want 3-4 bottles, which is doable since Amphipod allows for expansion (that’s why I bought it).
Delilah got a Carb Boom Vanilla-Orange gel off of my belt last week. I love the gel holders on the outside, but they might be too easy access for her. We seem to be back in the puppy phase (her 4th birthday is August 1) because this week she has eaten a pack of gum, pre-natal vitamins and countless pieces of plastic. She can’t stop chewing on everything she sees, meaning we may have bought wood furniture a little too early. This has led to 2 mornings with hydrogen peroxide induced
I’m just about out of space on WordPress and half out of space on Picassa. Where do you all store your photos for blogging? I need to solve this if you want more dog pictures.
Alright, I’m going to go watch the finale of “Friday Night Lights” (we hardly knew ye) and feel bad for myself (I’m entitled to a little misery time, dangit). What are your plans this weekend? Any other FNL fans out there? What’s the most ridiculous meal you have ever eaten? Bonus points if it has been featured on “Man vs. Food” (the Thurminator has been on that show).
Oh, and I might watch this video about 800 more times. It makes me laugh like an idiot.
