Square Life Round World

I'm navigating through this round world while living a square life, and it fits exactly as it should.

Into and Over It Part Two, Over It

on February 14, 2014

In case you missed Part One, in which I covered what I’m into lately, you can find it here.  Go ahead.  Take a moment.  Catch yourself up.  All caught up?  Here are some of the things I’m totally and completely over.

Over it

Winter–To be fair, we haven’t had any real winter weather to speak of here.  The ice that caused my St. Jude Half Marathon to be cancelled and just one little dusting of snow is about it.  Yet, I’m totally and completely over winter!  My skin is itchy and dry.  Some days I just can’t get warm.  I don’t like being cold, and I don’t like having to bundle up to avoid it.  Bring on flip flop weather!  Please!

This is all the snow we've had but I'm still over winter.

Rachel from Biggest Loser–I admit it.  I was just as shocked as the next person at her frail, skin-and-bones physique.  At the same time, I’ve heard enough about it.  I’m over it!

Traveling–This is a shocker for all who know me.  I love traveling and am always up for a trip.  With three pretty big trips in just a few months, two of them within two weeks of each other, I want to stay put for a while, as does my dog and my bank account.  That being said, I’m sure I’ll be getting over being over traveling pretty soon as I’m already starting to feel a tiny twinge of wanderlust.

I want to stay on the ground for a bit.

5ks–Another shocker!  I still love running and races, just not really 5ks anymore, especially local ones.  Don’t get me wrong!  There are some great charities doing 5ks as fund-raisers.  I want them to have successful events.  It’s just not a distance that I enjoy, and, well, I’m over them.  I’m not saying I’ll never do another one.  I’m relatively certain I’ll do one before the year is over.  At the moment, I’m a bit disinterested.

My Old Glasses–If you saw part one, you know that I broke my glasses a few weeks ago.  I don’t want to have to depend on my contacts for every single waking hour, so I used duct tape to hold them together.  For obvious reasons, I’m really over them.

I kind of can't believe I'm sharing this pic but you can see why I'm over them.

Paying Someone to Do My Yard–I’ve always had a problem with paying someone to do something I’m capable of doing myself.  It’s not really about the money.  It’s more about being thankful that I can and using my abilities.  Last year, however, I got completely behind and overwhelmed with the yard work for the first time ever.  So, I hired it done.  I’m hoping to stay on top of it this year.

Sure, it looks nice when it's professionally done, but I'd really like to go back to doing it myself.

Yogurt Shops–They are popping up on every street corner lately, and they are all just alike.  You self-serve your yogurt, which I find a bit icky to start with.  Dispensers are sticky, and, well, I have no idea whose hands have touched the dispenser.  Call me a germophobe, but I don’t like it.  Then, you add in whatever toppings you want, again self-serve.  Again, there’s the potential for yucky germs having touched the toppings.  Plus, if I want a treat, I want real ice cream!  To me, frozen yogurt is just a way to trick yourself into thinking you had something healthy.  Chances are, by the time you fill the container up and top it with all kinds of junk, you would have been better off just having ice cream anyway.  Ok, getting off my yogurt soap box now!

Valentine’s Day–I’m aware it’s today.  Painfully aware!  Call me cynical, and maybe I’m just bitter because I won’t be getting flowers and candy.  I have gotten flowers and candy in the past, though, and even then I was over it.  There is just so much pressure to the day.  And for what?  Show your loved ones you care all year-long not just one day.  Of course, I might change my tune if someone wanted to offer up a bottle of Pinot Noir from Oregon or Washington (you get this if you read part one).

So over Valentine's Day!

So over Valentine’s Day!
