I started running next to him and telling him to suck it up and come on... This went on for a minute or two until he looked at me and said the code word..
Side note-- We have a code word, whenever the other one is getting out of line, taking a joke a little to far, or the other one really needs something. I blogged about the code word before, but it was like a year ago. SO here is your recap. Don't ask about the code word, it is a word we haven't told anyone hence why it is our code word. We may use it the next time we are at your house when we really want to leave and can't come out and say it.
Well he used the all powerful code word which meant he was pretty serious and strugglin so I slowed down and ran with him until mile 11 or so and he told me to go on he could finish on his own.
Needless to say we both finished and trained much better for the next race..
So a few weeks ago we were hanging out with our friends Amanda & Chad and we got to talking to them about it and it has been on my mind. Does anyone else do this or are we the only crazies?
What about when you and hubs are ready to leave? How do you give the lets roll signal?
Also on my mind if my complete and utter failure last night. I tried to sew again... alone.. and it was an awful experience.
It started when Kelly and I tried to go for a run. My shins are still hurting and as soon as we took off I felt like I was running in place. It was like I wasn't even moving! Each step made me almost limp. By the time I hit mile 1 I was hobbeling and super upset. I love running and when things like this get in the way it really really bothers me. So please keep me and my shin's in your prayers.
I really think I was distraught about the shin thing and not really focusing on what I was doing, but I knew that I wanted to stop thinking about it, so I thought I would give sewing a chance to take my mind off of it. Well I was out of it and completley forgot all the things Jdawg taught us about sewing.
First off I couldn't get my lines straight. (anyone out there that sews.. how do you make sure the lines you are tracing are straight and not slanted up or down?) Then instead of leaving an inch or so around the lines to be able to have room to sew.. I just went ahead and cut on the lines. My burp cloth has now turned in to a wash cloth.
I go in to where my sewing machine is and try to start stitching my little wash cloth back together again. Then I realize I don't have a desk or table for me to sew on. Our Dinning room table is a bar height table and I can't reach the foot peddle if I sit there..Our desk has the computer on it, and our kitchen table is still in the process of being refinished. (oh and anyone that knows where I can find fun and funky chairs for my kitchen table let me know I want a hodge podge of chairs) So in order to satisfy my craving for being able to do at least one thing productive last night I decide to make due and use the dresser! wow.
this is how I looked hunched over my dresser.
So then to top it all off I was still in my own little zone and realized I never put the foot down on the sewing machine. So there I was "sewing" away and I wasn't even making lines! When I walked out off the bedroom Kelly was like let me see what you made.. I proceeded to act like a 2 year old and threw it on the ground. I think I even stomped whined something about being horrible, but I can't be sure.
