Today the sales rep from Elliot's lab was in, she's a sweet woman I have known for 5 years so when she mentioned how our usage of their lab had grown, I told her, "You have the cutest guy doing the pickups. Or at least you did!" She smiled and joked that they need to consider putting him back on the run and I heartily agreed that it would make good business sense. All in jest of course, but it was fun to joke about it. After she left, I started thinking, what if she goes back and tells him I said that? I panicked a little and then I realized it would probably make him feel good. I don't know if the rep really spends too much time at the lab anyway. She probably forgot about it before she stopped at her next shop.
Tonight when I got home, it was 80 degrees and very humid, and I decided to push myself to do a 5K to prep for when I walk it on June 24. I felt pretty good doing it, despite the fact that my shoes are giving me a blister on the bottom of my foot-I suspect they may be 1/2 size too big and my foot slides too much. I'll search for a solution and wait patiently for a callus to form. 3/4 of the way through I started to get so freaking hot, sweat started dripping off of me but I was in a zone. I finished in exactly 1 hour including cool down. Talk about water consumption! I definitely torched some calories tonight. I will be in good shape for my walk, I hope it doesn't get rained out!
I got checked out a few times while walking tonight which kinda makes me laugh and kinda makes me feel good. The funny thing is, guys who drive a big truck (and a lot of them around here do) have to duck their head down in order to see past their rear-view mirror, which makes them look like they have no neck! It's pretty funny looking!
My husband and I have been laughing more and joking more and just closer in general and it feels so good and right. I think, when the dust settles on this little time in my life, I will have learned some valuable lessons and come out the other side happier. What more could anyone want? Well, maybe a flirty red shirt for good measure!
