What month is it anyway?

By , April 16, 2018 6:25 am

For a while, I haven’t kept straight what the month or date is (somehow I’ve been fine on day of week, though). I’m not sure why that’s happening, BUT THIS BIZARRO WEATHER SURE DOESN’T HELP (says almost everyone in the US this weekend)! Crazy winds, and rain, then freezing rain, and snow. Wheeeeeeeeee! It’s April, right?!

Our pond is VERY high. Luckily, when it gets high, it floods in the woods, and not toward the house!

It was a perfect weekend for horrible weather though – we didn’t have a lot planned, and we both have slight colds, so a reason to stay home and relax was welcomed.


But! Friday night I had plans, and yay, felt well enough to go out! I took Bobbi out for an early birthday celebration. We hit up HuHot, and saw Ready Player One in 3D.

We weren’t looking for 3D tickets, but the show time that worked was in 3D so that’s what we did. I usually don’t care for 3D, but am actually glad we saw this in 3D – it was well done and added a lot to the experience! Now, I just need to find a BuzzFeed article that explains ALL the pop culture references in the movie that I missed (probably a lot).

We had a fun evening and it was great to catch up. I say this EVERY TIME I spend one-on-one time with a girlfriend, but we don’t see each other that often, and it’s a real treat when we do. It’s like a long, intense (in a good way, ha) therapy session!

And… I didn’t do much else the rest of the weekend, but you can keep reading if you want!


On Saturday morning I did my long run at the track and skipped an outdoor charity event I wanted to attend, but was worried it would make my cold worse. Ugh.

We did however, venture out later in the day for groceries, and it was still miserable, with sideways rain from high winds. That, paired with Aldi being out of a few crucial items, and my cold, made me a bit moody. Ugh.


All night Saturday, we listened to freezing rain hit the house. I woke up worried the roads would be treacherous and I’d have to cancel fitness boxing, but the roads were okay! Phew!

After class I got a pedicure, in case it’s warm in Texas this upcoming weekend, and anyone has to witness seeing my exposed toes. Ha.

We had lunch then took naps! YASSSSSSSSSSSSSSS.

Then I ran on the treadmill. And took a bath. And helped make dinner. And did some chores.

Truly lazy day. Okay, weekend, whatever! I need them AT LEAST once a month!

    Lazy days are so important! I’m glad you liked Ready Player One, I really enjoyed the book and am looking forward to the movie.

      They are!

      I am curious to hear what you think of the book compared to the movie! I read the book synopsis after seeing the movie, and they are a bit different!

    That weather. RIDICULOUS. It was super windy and cold here over the weekend – I swear, April has been colder than November!

    • kilax says:

      It’s been like November here, too. And it’s kind of crazy how long the cold is lasting, here. I thought it would have snapped by now. Sigh. I like winter, and even I am a bit annoyed.

    The pond looks so pretty with all the brush cleared and the snow.

    Your Sunday was my Saturday. I did my long run had a big breakfast and then napped for hours…..the best!

    • kilax says:

      It was gorgeous!!! And today it’s partially frozen again. Man this weather is strange.

      Ahh, that is the best. I hope you didn’t feel all stiff when you woke up though?!

  4. I am SO. OVER. this weather!!!! I don’t mind the cold, really, but this snow nonsense has GOT to stop. It’s the middle of April, dang it! The literal middle of April!! It should not still be snowing!! All I want is to be able to go for a run not wearing my warmest winter running jacket. Why is that so much to ask?! I can only think of two runs in this ENTIRE training cycle (which started 10 weeks ago) where I haven’t had to wear my warmest jacket. WTF. And I swear, if it’s suddenly 65 and sunny on race day (which, honestly, feels like it would just be par for the course at this point), I am going to be RAGEY. Hahaha. *shakes fist at sky*

    I am curious, though: how has the cold weather impacted your seasonal blues? Has it been any easier to handle this spring since it’s been so wintery? Or is it the light that gets to you the most?

    • kilax says:

      I was thinking the same thing about wearing my winter jacket for most of my damn runs. Like, I’ve been wearing it so much, that it’s starting to smell, even though I wash it so much, cause it gets used TOO MUCH. I wore it for today’s run too! Oh, and you know it’s going to be warm AND humid on race day. Okay, maybe not humid. Ha. Gawd. And the snow IS annoying, because it makes it more dangerous to run outside. Like you, I can handle the cold.

      The cold lasting so long makes is making my seasonal blues stay away. So it has been easier to handle! But I wonder now, if we do just go straight to HOT, if that will mess me up! I am doing better with the light. Thank you for asking!!!! :-* How is it affecting you besides ALL THE (understandable) RAGE?!

      • I’ve been doing pretty good, actually! I really think it’s the daylight that gets me the most, though. The cold compounds my misery, but I think not seeing the sun is the root of my issues. Even though I haven’t seen the sun much lately, at least it’s bright outside when I leave for work and when I get home now, which makes a big difference for me, I’ve noticed.

          I am glad you are doing well! It feels like we are gaining morning and nighttime hours so fast, so at least the weather can’t mess with that!!!! ha!

    That’s definitely winter weather, but in mid-April? Ugh! I’m glad the weather didn’t prevent you from doing your weekend activities. I agree that hanging out 1-1 with friends feels like a rare treat these days (and somehow different from working out together). I didn’t realize you say RP1–I’ll ask you for your review of it later today!

    • kilax says:

      Yeah, I know we are the same in that we value our “family” time most weeknights, and outings with friends are more on the rare side (which is fine)! I much prefer the 1-1 time over group time – I’d just rather have that focus with one person that spread it out over a group (if that makes any sense…).

      I liked it! You saw it, right?

    I asked the same weather question on Friday and today (Tuesday). Snow in the spring is something that happens every year here, but something I will never get used to.
