Looking at the Bright Side

Call me Alexander. I'm having a case of "the Mondays."

 But the more I hang out in my pity party I am forced to look on the bright side.

- I have completed countless running races, including two marathons.
- I have completed countless triathlons including 5 half ironmans and 2 full ironmans.
- I own my own company.
- I have a great husband. (should probably make that bullet #1)
- I volunteer.
- i have a roof over my head and food in my belly.
- I have good fashion sense.

I mean check that out. It's good to be me.

Oh my Aching Back

I have always had some back pain.
Recently it got worse.
Once the pain started going down my leg, I decided it was time to go see my doc.
Turns out I have a herniated/pinched disc.

But I am stubborn.

so this Sunday I will still be participating in Tough Mudder.
Yes, I am nuts.

Please do not tell my mom I am doing this. haha.

My Life in Design Sales

Yesterday I ran around town updating libraries.
I went to XXX Architecture to take stock of what they actually had in theirs since I had never been there.
I was so happy I found a GREAT party spot on the street in a TWO hour zone! High five!
I walked around the car and got some things out of the trunk…and some home made pumpkin bread to reel them in.
Did my thing. Ran into a girl from another design firm there.
An hour later I am back at my car.
I see a bring green something on my windshield.
Surely it can’t be a parking ticket! I am in a TWO hour zone and have only been here for ONE hour.
I am so mad I get in my car and pick up my phone to call and complain as I open it and it reads ..”parking in less than 15 feet from a fire hydrant”
I get out and look.
And oh yes, RIGHT next to my driver side door is a damn silver fire hydrant.
All I got to say is, Aren’t these things supposed to be red?

the funniest part to me -- the parking ticket included not one, but two pictures of my car illegally parked. 
so much for finding rock star parking.
