I got three things this weekend that should make my life better. Not that life is bad, it’s just that these things will make it better.
1. I bought a new pair of running shoes:
Why I had to take a picture while wearing them I don’t know because I haven’t actually run in them yet. Anyway, I went running Friday morning and my knee hurt so badly after a mile that I threw my hands in the air and said “FINE! I’ll look into new shoes.” I went to Road Runner and they video tapped my feet while I was running on a treadmill and then we analyzed it. It was so freaking cool. I could have sat all afternoon watching videos of people running on the treadmill. When I ran track in high school I remember my coach asking me a few times if I kicked my ankle when I ran and I thought he was crazy. I mean, really, I think I would know if I kicked myself. After watching the video I can’t believe I didn’t ever trip myself…literally. The guy that was helping me was awesome and gave me a lot of useful information that I took to another store where the shoes were cheaper. Thanks for the help but sorry, I’m not paying over $100 for shoes. I’m not that dedicated – especially since I’m unemployed. So I went to a store where I happen to have a gift card and voila! Supposedly these shoes meet the criteria I need for my foot type. We shall see. All I know is that my knee is badly inflamed and it hurts like the dickens when I run. So…fingers crossed!
2. I bought a bathingsuit top. After all the lame drama, can you believe it’s solid black? I just couldn’t find anything else and I’m not overly happy or satisfied with this one but I was just too wore out to keep searching. But it’s over and done with and now my life can move on.
3. Peggle!! My brother told me about this game only last night and I’m completely and totally hooked. It’s a computer game that’s a cross between pin ball and plinko from the Price is Right. To hear it described it sounds totally lame but it’s freakin awesome. All you do is aim a little ball and shoot it and it hits other balls and bricks and you get points. When you hit all the orange objects you advance to the next level and eventually the next stage. I only have the demo version, because that was free, but I’ve been playing it almost non-stop. Matter of fact I almost didn’t write this post because I’m itching to play. It’s sort of like being a kid who has to do their homework before they can go outside with their friends, only my friend is a unicorn named Bjorn.
And there you have it. The three things I got this weekend to make my life better. Now if I could just find some chocolate…
