Quit your whining and deal
Yesterday morning started off great. Bam and I watched the NYC Marathon online. Then Mike woke up and turned it on tv as well. Somehow he knew this was like the Superbowl for runners.
The homestretch Lelisa Desisa went for the lead, then Wilson Kipsang looked over at him like dude, you’re really gonna make me work this, uh? Then kicked it into high gear and went for the win with the time of 2:10:59. That finish was freaking amazing!! Somehow I went to work with a runners high just watching it.
I was of course cheering for Meb who took 4th, but he put up a good fight. I can’t even wrap my head around how fast these guys are. It’s truly fascinating.
In other news, just in case some of you think we live a fairytale life, here is prof that it in fact, is far from the truth. I am going to share a few things life has recently thrown our way so you can laugh with us.
- It rained over the weekend which was very much welcomed to our drought stricken state. It was all fun and games until Mike opened the convertible and found the floor covered in about 4 inches of water and the electrical system compromised. After some investigating, the cause was and acorn got stuck in the drain. A FREAKING ACORN!
- The hip specialist I was refered to in San Francisco is supposed to be the best. I want the best. Well, I wanted the best until I read his stellar reviews on Yelp. One person said their surgery bill was $55,000 and he doesn’t take insurance. This hip better shape up and work right.
- Mike needs shoulder surgery. On both shoulders.
- We took Bam to the Vet yesterday to get a spot that randomly appeared and grew a little over the weekend. Edit: the first test didn’t show any abnormal cells, but they won’t know if it’s cancer until it’s removed and biopsied later this week. We are now kicking ourselves in the butt for saying ‘we don’t need pet insurance, Bam is so healthy’ as we eat Ramen noodle soup for the next couple months.
Oh yeah, there’s more, but I’ll stop here because no matter how bad you think you have it, there is always someone who has it way worse than you.
So quit your whining and deal.
