like a lightbulb in a dark room
cleared to run & sick

Tomorrow I should be ok. But today sucked. sick all day. I also realized I am looking to sign up for a race a week away after being on my ass for two months. 

Alright lets go body! one week!

I GOT CLEARED TO RUN!!

THREE VISITS IN & I’M CLEARED TO RUN & TRY SWIMMING & BIKING. 

If this works out I will be allowed to return to training & even TRI on the 7th in Williamsburg!!

MY DREAMS DID NOT DIE THIS CAN STILL BE MY YEAR!!

Tomatoes from Steve’s house. His mother moved to Florida & the tomatoes took over. Idk how a blind woman grows tomatoes like this but I left about half the stuff on the vine & asked Steve to watch it. 
These things are huge. I removed the rotting ones, and cut off the broken branches, a lot of the green ones are from branches that were broken because the tomatoes were too big to support.
I read that they will still ripen (but not taste as fantastic) when picked green. I’m mostly picking them now because Steve won’t & I don’t want to fight the bugs & critters about it later. If I lived closer to Steve I would watch them & pick them fresh, but I almost paid $40 for a missed PT appointment today because it took so long to get home.

Anyway, look at these giant fucking tomatoes my blind mother-in-law grew.

Not a hair blog

Sorry for all the hair stuff. (Not really, I have great hair)

I started PT on Monday so I should be getting back into my regularly scheduled programming in a few weeks. Today is my second appointment.

I DID get the car on Saturday, if you pay attention I said earlier that we had canceled, but he called me that morning & we picked up the last Subaru Impreza on the lot. Its my favorite colors, black exterior with beige interior/black accents. I’ll post pictures later still, its been a busy week (I’ve already run a tank of gas through it).

Anyway, thanks for sticking through the slow bits guys.

Three days is the max for that braid apparently. But now I have these curls.

People are like ‘oh your still wearing the braid’, its been like 3 days…

I wear a French braid for a week. The same one. I braid my hair on Sunday & I won’t touch it till Friday & nobody cares.

Someone else braids my hair all fancy & I want to keep it as long as possible & people are freaking out.

Bitch I feel like a Viking Warrior. I will wear this hairstyle until my hair falls out in a braided wig & then I will wear the wig. 

I love this braid. It feels great. I feel powerful and men fear me.
These are probably attributes I have without the braid but I feel the braid compliments them nicely. 

Yes. I’m going to keep the braid for at least one more day.

Bath Sheets

If you do not know what a bath sheet is, they are $20 at Bed Bath & Beyond and you need to know.. 

Seriously have been wanting them forever but always thought ‘nahhh those are expensive’

I bought two. 

I fucking love giant towels..

I had this theme of ‘Disappointed Renaissance Children’ But only these two girls came out well enough to be worthwhile. I have other pictures of them sometimes in the same frame, but these two are the best. 

I really wish I had gotten better pictures of the other children. So many kids were dressed up and by noon (the fair opens at 10 am) they were DONE. Not impressed with belly dancers, bagpipe players, or singing sirens, these girls remained stoic through the performances.

quietlywaitinonnothin:

I took the flowers out tonight & have no plans to put them back, but the braid is cool.

& will remain in my hair until it looks like I was dragged across town in a barrel filled with nails pulled by two white horses. 

I love the last picture. I think it looks like viking woman hair (is VIKING still a TV show or is that over?)

Renaissance Fair Maryland

Honestly I just finished uploading the pictures to Facebook & the idea of loading them up here is exhausting.

I’ll do it tomorrow.

I did get my hair braided, its fantastic. It better last 3 fuckin days tho my friend paid 30bucks to get it done.

The weekend (because mine starts Thursday night)

All my homework is done.

Went out for coffee with a friend I haven’t actually seen in a while.

Brother went to a pool party, I said fine take the car. He didn’t even bring a towel, seat is soaked. He doesn’t really get the ‘sharing’ thing. He will learn. Not to much longer now. Ok, I can deal with this.

Stayed at friends house, but kinda got sick. Bad food. But OK just need bathrooms nearby today.

Woke up with spiders in the bed. Yes, plural. Anyway I wasn’t going back to sleep. It was 6am anyway.

Took the new metro line into DC to see Martha. Martha is a passenger pigeon, she’s been dead since 1914, but I’ve read about her since I was little so to me it was a big deal. But yes, I took a day trip to a major metropolitan area to see a dead bird. I’m actually pretty proud of it. (Pics to come tomorrow)

Walked a lot, visited my friends workplace, got behind the scenes tour (more pictures). Mrs.Post was a pretty cool lady & her house was great. Lots o Russia.

Hip is killing me. PT on Monday. Good.

No car, had several appointments set up for Saturday at dealerships but finances say wait till after labor day. OK. Maybe I can get a green one then.

Mom is forever going to have a cane now. Her spinal tap didn’t go well &didn’t help. She will forever lean to the right. Ok,we can deal with that.

Sleeping at Steve’s (hopefully without spiders). He’s still injured but getting better. Looking toward the MoCo Epic in October then possibly surgery? Scary but, ok, I can deal with that.

Ok, I can deal with that.

Ok I can deal with that.

Alright, I’ll deal with that too.

Sums up my new plans for the weekend.

Another week of class coming up, let’s see what life has in store!!

I can deal with that!

#Tbt my mum at my age.

This was the scene on my way to class this morning. I wanted so bad to be running. (This is part of my local trail system in between me & school)
PT starts on Monday hopefully I can get this fixed before all the white stuff falls out of the sky. I hate when the white stuff falls out of the sky.
