Today I’m joining Amanda’s Thinking Out Loud link-up for the first time, whoop whoop! The timing couldn’t be better, I’ve got a lot of random thoughts running throughout my mind…
Thought #2: The article “16 Signs You’re A Little (Or A Lot) Type A” via Huffington Post couldn’t be more accurate. I shared it on Facebook and was surprised (maybe I shouldn’t have been?) that a handful of others could relate. I wonder if “Type A” personalities are more attracted to others with “Type A” personalities? With the exception of spouses… Ryan is the totally opposite, he’s a more of a “Type Z,” ha!
Thought #3: The dance group that we watched Sunday morning at the NBC4 Health & Fitness Expo did a snazzy routine to the song Timber and every time I’ve heard it since, I just wanna dance. But for the sake of my own reputation, I hold back the urge… Unless I’m in my car because no one can see you dancing in your car, except when you’re stopped at a red light. Rrrighhht.
Thought #4: I went to the dermatologist for another round of laser treatment on my melanoma scars yesterday morning. It isn’t the worst pain that I’ve ever felt, but it definitely isn’t pleasant. I’ve heard it described as feeling like someone is snapping a rubber band on your skin.
Thought #5: When you order a drink with whipped cream, do you:
a) Eat the whipped cream first?
b) Swirl the whipped cream into the drink?
c) Save the whipped cream for last?
d) What are you talking about? I don’t order whipped cream on my drinks.
For whatever reason, my momma and I always enjoy watching people drink their drinks at Starbucks. She prefers to scoop off the whipped cream first, but I prefer swirling it into my drink – it makes the drink super creamy!
Thought #6: Monday is Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. which means this weekend is a 3-day weekend. I don’t have any grand plans, but I’m really looking forward to a totally relaxing day… Maybe a yoga class? A trip to the nail salon? A haircut? Watching hours of Netflix? Some baking? Yes, yes, yes, yes.
Thought #7: I registered for another spring race. Last fall I registered to run the Parks 10K, but due to various reasons I couldn’t run so they issued me a credit to use towards a future race. I’ll be running the Reston 10 Miler on March 2nd – it works perfectly because I have 11 miles planned for that weekend!
Thought #8: This week I’ve been addicted to Cheesy Sweet Open-Faced Wafflewiches. Salty, sweet, creamy, crunchy… Perfection. Too bad I ate the last two waffles for breakfast this morning.
Thought #9: I’m still teaching everyday at my former elementary school and I’m loving it – the students are wonderful! In the mornings I’m with 4th graders and in the afternoons I’m with 3rd graders. We’re currently working on multiplication in both grades and I’ve tried almost every tip/trick in the book but it’s still not sticking… We completed a multiplication table earlier this week and it was the first time they noticed any patterns. Small steps are better than no steps.
Thought #10: Plot twist!
Question: Do you have a “Type A” personality?
Question: Whipped cream – enjoy it first, swirl it in, or save it for last?
