Here is the completely unnecessary background story:
So on Friday, my training was to run 7.1 miles. I had the whole season of Rizzoli and Isles on DVR. But I turned on my cable and it didn’t work. I had to get a new cable box which meant a clean DVR. So I decided to buy the season online, because I can think of few things worse than running 7.1 miles without destraction. But then my Blue-ray didn’t work so I couldn’t watch it on my TV. So I balanced my Ipad on the treadmill for 7.1 miles. And I tried not to run too loudly.
Oh. And background, background story: My husband thinks the microwave is broken but it works for me which makes me think it likes me more.
And before I went running I was on an ichat for 40 minutes to be told to plug my blue-ray into a different TV (which we don’t have.) I was told this twice and then the helpful person ended the conversation. And then I called and was told it was broken. After 40 more minutes. So I was in a bad mood. And that was BEFORE I started running.
And then I watched Rizzoli and Isles and Rizzoli’s mom told her to think of 3 good things for every bad thing she thought.
And this is what I thought:
- I don’t have to run 8 miles for one more week.
- I have chocolate in my freezer.
- TV shows solve most of life’s dilemmas in less than 45 minutes.
You should try this next time you have a bad thought. It really works. Until the microwave won’t pop a simple bag of popcorn.
