Friday Update In Bullets

A couple of edits are at the end of this post-written a few hours later.

○ Eyeballs are still giving me some trouble, but much better than they were on Wednesday.

○ Feet are worse than they were earlier in the week, so I'm on the hunt for those socks that keep your feet flexed. When I run errands today, I'll go to my running store to see if they have any my size in stock. My thank you lap last night was just that--not as painful as last month, but painful enough I stopped at a quarter mile.

○ So busy. I did absolutely nothing Wednesday during the day except rest my eyeballs, but the rest of the past two weeks has been pretty crazy for someone who has a limited amount of spoons available. (If you are unfamiliar with how the terms 'spoonie' and 'spoons' came about, or if you've never heard of this before, here is a great link: Spoon Theory)

○ I have been fielding messages about our boat that is sadly STILL for sale all week. DOZENS of them because we lowered the price.

○ Wednesday night we went over to our elderly friends' home for sub sandwiches and BINGO. They had prizes! We'll have to contribute our own prizes next time! I won chocolate and a scratch-off that was a $4 winner. Fun night, but Doc's short term memory is way gone. He can still diagnose diseases, and talk about his life as a younger man in detail, so his long term memory is still in tact.

Cutest Pirate Puppy Ever

I already knew at this point (2015) that this was the very last race I'd ever run unless I become the Bionic Woman at some point. This is Reno--he now has a gray muzzle and I'm also now gray with blue & purple highlights, but he did so well!! He won the cutest pirate puppy contest, so while I did not run in those boots, I changed into them for our winner photos.

I am beyond thankful that my very last running race was such a fun one for a fantastic cause (Paws Giving Independence) and such a success for my puppy boy. He's now 10, so his running days are behind him as well. ♥
