Lame is what many blogs turn into during the summer (and perhaps this one is no exception?*)
The training stops, the posts become less frequent and the content becomes uninteresting. Why is that? But I suppose there's always WIAW (is that still a "thing?" Do people actually care what someone ate? I for sure don't. ) and that's the end of my generalized rant about blogging for the year.
L and I went to RPM Italian for my birthday dinner. It was totes delish! And being the "lame" blogger that I am, I only took one photo. And that was of the birthday candle/gelato. It didnt occur to me to take my phone out and document our amazing beet salad, 600 day prosciutto, my ravioli stuffed with sausage & ricotta cheese in a truffle butter sauce complete with fresh shaved black truffles on top. Nope. The only thing on my mind was to enjoy time with L and have the best damn birthday celebration with him. Lame blogger? Possibly. Best partner ever? Absolutely! and only one of those matters to me.

Monday July 8th was one of the best days of my life. Definitely a top 3 day out of the 11325 I've had so far. As much as I'd like to discuss what made it so wonderful, I'll keep those memories to myself, locked away in my heart.
This necklace Kim gave me is so not lame!!
Next dilemma is:
I have 3 runs left for this week- an easy 10 and two easy 5 milers. The thing is, L's cousin is coming to visit and CB should not be left alone with her while Xaar is out for a run. Do I run the 10 miler tonight and the 5's Friday & Saturday (& take CB) or take my chances with leaving CB behind for my 10 on Saturday?**
Hmm. Tough one. I'd say this is such a lame thing to expend brain cells on. Just run.
I just ordered L's birthday presents and they will arrive tomorrow (i thought they would take longer). His birthday isn't for a few more weeks. Should I give him the presents this weekend, or closer to his actual birthday?**
Well, even though your presents can't ever top what he gave you, they are still pretty kick ass. This is also super lame to be worrying about. Have a beer tomorrow and think it over. You'll figure out what's best.***
CB says this post is LAME!
So there you have it. The current mental musings of myself. I'm thankful this weekend will be far from lame, but whether or not any of it makes its way onto this blog remains to be seen.
Happy almost weekend.
*Except I'm not here to do giveaways, get new followers, increase my SEO, or sell my soul/integrity to the devil for shitty product reviews.I'm solely here to write down my heavily filtered thoughts. I could care less if anyone read them. But I am thankful for the friends I've made.
**Yes, I just wrote questions to myself and answered them.
***I don't ever take myself too seriously. If this blog stops being fun, it's going to get canned.
