I could talk about my freak occurence at work today......Anybody, looking for a Dentist? Well, Janice says to look elsewhere.....
We are having issues in the basement of our office with water on the ground so the employee bathroom is off limits and employees have to zip out to the lobby if we need to "relieve" ourselves! Now, I might have mentioned (I don't remember) that I am doing this pushup challenge with my gym buddies on Tuesday of next week. I've ALSO been just crazy busy the last few weeks so I've been trying to squeeze in unorthodox workout sessions in whatever environment works. ANYWAY, my latest "thing" is knocking out pushups on the bathroom floor every time I go in there at work. (I WEAR GLOVES but there is really no reasonable way to justify myself here other than to say I have a weak bladder and I end up doing A LOT of pushups in a day-ha!) Soooo..... this afternoon, I'm in the lobby bathroom in pushup position when the door just swings WIDE open and our next patient, the LOVELY Janice, gets full view of me d*mn near laying on the bathroom floor. (I didn't lock it for whatever reason.... perhaps because I wasn't actually going to the bathroom that time or perhaps because I assumed the ridiculously noisy fan would have notified someone that it was in use!!) Now, I think when you open the door on someone, your immediate response is to shut it so she quickly did that. Thoughts immediately began cycling through my head like like "how do I explain being on the bathroom floor and how can I cover this tactfully?" I'm pretty sure thoughts were also going through her head like "WTH is she doing on the bathroom floor and what kind of office is this?" WHAT TO DO???.....Hmmm....I regrouped, opened the door, smiled and sweetly said, "Well Hello Janice, beatiful day out there isn't it! Now that I've removed myself from the floor, let me get you to to a room, stick my filthy fingers in your mouth and take some xrays......" Poor Janice..... (Truthfully, Janice is in her golden years, nearly oblivious to her surroundings and I think she thought she was at the Dairy Queen, not the Dentist anyway)
Other random news:
We leave for Blaine tomorrow for the MN Elite Hockey tournament. Both of my girls were invited to play in this tournament for their respective levels and will play for the North team. It will be a VERY busy weekend with 8 games and skills competitions. I'm thankful to be so busy since I won't be running and I will have less time to obsess over my potential loss of fitness.
My son has agreed to cut his hair. He has decided he would like a mullet. "You know, short on the sides, long in the back Mom" Thankyou very much to the Bantam boys hockey team who is on a mission to bring this hideous style back.
We are heading on a getaway with 2 other couples (no kids) to the Duluth North Shore area NEXT weekend. I am SO excited to
April is my slowest month of the year! I have 3 weeks off of work, Joe is not traveling. My kids are done with hockey until the beginning of May and we get to spend evenings together like a NORMAL family! I will move most of my running back to the morning which will be a bit of a change since I've been going mainly in the evenings these days.
I know I've been a bit absent with the comments lately. I've been doing most of my blog reading on my phone and just haven't had a lot of down time. I'm looking forward to a much more relaxing month ahead. Good luck to all those racing this weekend!!! Hopefully I will be running by my next post!!
Before a quick "cheer me up" cocktail! Thank you so much J:)
