Three Things Thursday

1. This government shutdown SUCKS. Since I work at a gym on an air reserve base, I am out of work until this crap is resolved. And I hate feeling so powerless about it.

The only thing I can control is my attitude. I've been trying to put on my happy pants, and most of the time I can. But yesterday they wouldn't zip until I let out a couple grumpy tweets.

The other way our small running group on base is "fighting back" is by continuing to meet up at 3:15 outside the sad, locked gym. Tuesday we ran two mile repeats (7:08 and 7:07- still so happy about that). Today might get rained out, but we'll see.

2. I've been catching up with some cross stitch projects. I love crafts like this that force me to slow down. Sometimes it does get tedious, but for the most part, it is nice to be able to be calm and present, one tiny x at a time.
 I plan on framing it with some green fabric and hanging it... somewhere. I wanted to turn it into a decorative pillow, but I asked the Husbeast if he would remember to NEVER put his head on it, and he answered honestly and said no. Pillows will be used as pillows. Wallhanging it is, then.

3. And then there's this:
Twice in the past week, I joined the Husbeast at an outdoor shooting range and got to play with some of his toys. What can I say, I had a blast (haha, bad pun). Don't ask me to tell you the specs, though, because about 30 seconds after I'm told, I forget. Even though I don't remember the name/model/number stuff, I'm still a pretty good shot- good enough my husband praises the tight groupings I get with both rifles and hand guns.

YOUR TURN: tell me something random. an unexpected hobby, favorite food you've eaten today, anything!


  1. I run my first marathon on Sunday. :)

  2. Ooo, I want to go to an outdoor range like that!

    Sorry you are off work! I am too... ugh.
