My coffee cup and laptop made out this morning, and now Iâ€™m getting the blue screen of death.
I would be more upset if I didnâ€™t constantly back-up my laptop AND if I didnâ€™t have a netbook to blog on. I try not to sweat it when stuff like this happensâ€¦ it was clearly an accident.
One of my greatest life lessons was when I was 18 and crashed my motherâ€™s car. I was in an empty parking lot and my mom was following me in my car (canâ€™t remember why we were driving each otherâ€™s cars). I made a quick U-turn without looking and slammed into a concrete pole, pretty much totaling the carâ€¦ two days before my mom was moving from Florida to Tennessee. I was SO upset and sobbed hysterically, but my mom didnâ€™t even yell at me! She knew I already felt bad enough. It taught me a great lesson about not freaking out when material things get trashedâ€¦ it happens.
Pre-laptop melt down, I went on a lovely 5.0 mile run. I really need new shoes and are getting horrible shin splints on my right leg. 🙁 I ordered some today!
- Distance: 5.0 miles
- Duration: 49:22
- Mile 1: 9:51
- Mile 2: 9:37
- Mile 3: 9:57
- Mile 4: 9:57
- Mile 5: 10:03
Post-run, I made lunch:
The star of the show was definitely CAPERS! Iâ€™ve never purchased capers before but love their salty taste at restaurants. It definitely spiced up this regular old quinoa bowl.
In the mix:
- Roasted zucchini, squash, mushrooms, and broccoli
- Kidney beans
Just had some Reseeâ€™s for dessert!
Hope youâ€™re having a good Monday, too! 🙂
