Today started out like any other normal day. Dropped Colin off at school. Had a GREAT run. I was feeling pretty awesome. I picked Colin up from school, went to weight watchers, and then decided to go downtown with the kids. As I was driving downtown I noticed a really weird blurry spot - I thought the windshield was dirty so I kept cleaning it off - but the spot was still there. Then I noticed the spot was moving when I turned my head. Then I noticed the spot was getting bigger and bigger. Before I knew it, I could hardly see anything out of my left eye at all. There was sort of a sparkly rainbow colored arch in my vision but I could not see past it with that one eye. I COMPLETELY freaked out. Luckily I was right near Pete's job, so I called him and he rushed me to the doctor. I TOTALLY thought I was having a stroke or something. As it turns out, I was having migraine aura. It's weird because I didn't have a headache. I felt totally fine with the exception of the fact that my eye didn't work. Eventually my eye got back to normal but now I feel completely exhausted. The doctor gave me orders to stay in bed for the rest of today. (secretly my most favorite bit of doctor advice!) When I got back in the car, my cell rang - it was my regular doctor's nurse. He FINALLY gave me a referral to a neurologist! WHAT A DAY! All joking aside - the last time I was this afraid was when my son was on the NICU as a preemie. I seriously was afraid I was going to crash my car with my children inside! Thank God Pete's job was across the street from where it happened. It was the closest place to even pull over!
Ok - drama aside. Something really funny happened today - ok, at least it's funny in my sick twisted mind! I was walking in the dollar store when these two women walked in. They were talking rather loudly so it's not like I was eavesdropping. I'm sure EVERYONE heard their conversation. Mind you - these were grown women - likely in their late 30's! The one woman said "You know what I hate? When that air slips out from between your butt cheeks." To which the other woman responded "Oh I KNOW and I really hate when it makes that sound or when it smells!.". This was a serious conversation. I was on the other aisle laughing my freaking butt off. I wanted to yell HELLO LADIES!!! Do you not know what a FART is? HAHAHAHA Seriously - you can't make this stuff up!
My run this morning was really great! I ran 3 miles with a mix of flat and hills in 41 minutes 22 seconds. That was while pushing Susie in the jogger! My race on Sunday is on a pretty flat course and I won't be pushing the jogger! Could it be that I will finally break my 40 minute PR for a 5k?!
Thanks for reading! Have a wonderful night! -Monica
