now you don’t
This was The Very Hungry Catepillar that has been living Chez Sato since early December. Thing 2 brought him home from a one-year old’s birthday party that she had attended. (She also brought home his smaller cousin, the table decoration). All I know is that the mother of said 1 year old must have been pretty pleased with Thing 2 asked if she could take this one. It
is was enormous.
The Mister was coming home today, and I felt the need to de-clutter. Something about the cold and being stuck inside staring at all my
crap possessions (and those of the Things) was making me crazy! TVHC was the first casualty. (Let me tell you, the green balloons, well those popped easily. The RED one, boy that was LOUD!).
The funny thing? Noone’s said a word yet about TVHC’s absence. Which means I could have done this weeks ago. We don’t live in a large house. TVHC used up some valuable square footage.
Other stuff that didn’t survive? Old Christmas cards. Some non-functioning headphones. The Halloween candy (from 2011!).
But I’ll admit, I popped a very stale piece of bazooka gum into my mouth as I headed out for my last long run before Surf City (8 miles). Today marks the start of my taper week, and I’m glad about that. I need some rest. I’ll do stretching and strengthening tomorrow, have acupuncture on Tuesday, and I may try to see my ART/Graston guy on Wednesday. Fly to SoCal on Thursday (I’ll do laps on the plane, I promise!). Plus some good eating. Today’s run went well, and I’m going to chalk that up to the food I’ve been eating.
