I had so much intention to write up those race reports I’m behind on this weekend. I really did. Instead Husband and I finished the basement remodel. It sucked up a good amount of Friday and most of Saturday. And the time we weren’t working in the basement Saturday we were out running errands. I’ve barely even looked at a computer in the last four or five days. For real.
But to give you an idea, here’s our basement before-
Disgusting, dirty, filthy, random hole in the wall that lead to underneath the front stoop, blood red, disturbing looking space under our house. It was gross, you cannot deny that.
And here it is all done.
We finished off half of the available square footage. So we gained about an extra 200sqft in total. We added a second living space, redid the laundry room, and took out the creepy middle of the room basement toilet that was in fact a shit volcano when our sewage backed up a few years ago and replaced it. So we now have a functioning half bathroom too. Rob and I have lived together for four years and this is the first time we’ve ever had two toilets. Yup.
In running news, I’m still experiencing some pain and soreness in my leg after runs. I’m not anywhere near the mileage I need to be and I missed my long Sunday morning because my parents came over to take us out to brunch and I just didn’t have time to run before hand. No matter what time I get home from school today I will head out for at least four miles. I know it’s not much, but my life is crazy right now and I’m really still injured. I just need to accept that Empire State will be a painful sufferfest of a half marathon and get through it.
Also, can I tell you about yesterday? I went to school to do work, my usual Sunday afternoon, sadly. I got there around 2pm. Around 330 I left my room to use the bathroom and did not have my keys around my neck. Annnnd, locked out. I could see into my room, my keys on my desk. My wallet, my car keys, every possible thing I needed to get work done. All of it, locked inside. And I was the one and only sad sack soul at school on a Sunday working. Text Bing, no answer. Text assistant principal, no answer. Those were my only two ways to try and acquire a key. Conceed and call Husband to leave work and come get me.
Only a minute or two before Rob showed up Bing calls me. He had called another teacher who had a building master key and lived right in town to come let me in. So hubby and I tried his break in method until Other Teacher showed up and unlocked my room for me. Then, as a show of my love and appreciation for my fantastic husband who left work to come get me and had offered to drive me back in the morning should we fail to break in, we went to Wegmans and I bought him half moon cookies. And we sat in his car and enjoyed them. Because when life is stressfull taking a cookie break is paramount. True story.
My weekend. Basement reno, brunch, locked out at school, no running. Ughughughughgughguhguhguhgug.
