Technical problems, wedding wishes and pool time – #HASHTAGHUMPDAY

Happy Hump Day, e’rybody! I’ve taken too many weeks away from my favorite link-up, #HASHTAGHUMPDAY. Let’s do this Schmidt! Join me and link up with Laura over at Life With Lolo, for #HASHTAGHUMPDAY!

Today is Day Two of C25K. After the mp3 fail, but considering the massive muscle pain Day One left me in, I imagined Day Two would be more difficult, physically, but at least I’d know exactly where in the program I had to give up. That was optimistic. The iPod was fully functioning, but I’d transferred the podcast from Day One’s broken cheap mp3 player. Result? Instead of the podcast skipping after prompting the fourth interval run, it just stopped. Apparently, the full podcast didn’t transfer over to the iPod. Today, instead of restarting the podcast, I switched to a 130bpm mix from Steady 130 and guessed on the rest of the intervals. In good news, I did eight intervals of running, which is correct! In not-so-good news, I do know the last interval was definitely not the full 60 seconds, and the lengths of intervals 5, 6 and 7 can’t be confirmed. #sittingdownhurts #everythinghurts #technologyfail #storyofmylife

 

 

My replies to comments still don’t seem to be working, which is super-frustrating. I’m tempted to use Disqus, but am afraid that – for a non-Disqus reader – the initial sign-up process will be too annoying/involved. Either way, I’m afraid that I’ve already lost people to the glitch. #Idontdowellwithchange #WordPresspluginfail #peoplethinkIdontcare

 

 

Over the last week I’ve had two dreams that I was working as a bridal consultant, again. The dreams themselves were unremarkable, just the general act of working at the boutique and helping brides find the dress of their dreams. The most notable thing was that when I woke from the dreams, I was very sad. I miss it so much! Yesterday I discovered the stack of bridal magazines from my own wedding. I flipped through them, wishing I could do it all over again. Combine the dreams, the magazines and the fact that Spring 2016 bridal gowns recently walked the runway? One melancholy me. #Iloveweddings #Ilovebridalgowns #Iwantanotherwedding #onceisntenough

The pool is officially open! It actually opened last week, but now that the first game of Pool Basketball has been played, it’s officially official. #poolmakesmehappy #watermakesmehappy #waterbaby #Idratherbeswimming #thisiswhyFlorida

 

 

Coincidentally, once the pool was open, I also received my first sunburn of the summer. It was a non-swimming sunburn, though. It was a crepe-myrtle-removing-orange-tree-planting sunburn. Awesome tank-top lines. #everyyear #itdoesntmatterhowmuchsunscreenIwear #wifebeaterburn

 

 

Hope everyone else is enjoying the week – sans burns and muscle fatigue!

    I think I would miss working at a bridal boutique too, because it would be my dream job! (most days). And I’m super jealous of the pool opening, even if it did mean sunburn, I’d take it!

      It was one of my dream jobs! And maybe that’s part of the sadness – it was the first time I chose to leave a job I really loved doing. I do not wish any sunburns upon you. I wish you warm, sunny, pool weather, but no sunburns. Having one is always worse than you remember!

    oh my god when ross is an 8. hahahahahahahaha last weekend we had a fish fry at my parent’s house + had plenty of grown up beverages then decided it was a SOLID idea to go from the hot tub to the pool where the water COULD NOT have been more than 60 degrees. how we all survived, I don’t know.

      How long were you guys in the pool? Or was it just long enough to realize what a bad idea it had been? And think how much worse it would have been if you HADN’T had those adult beverages!

          Hold the phone! You replied to my reply! Does that mean you got a notification of my reply?? Is it working?? (Hope the weight-limit discovery didn’t cause a strained neck – such a common chicken fight injury)

            oh man I whined for DAYS. so apparently once upon a time I created a WP account, so whenever I read a WP blog, there’s a little toolbar that shows up? so if you reply THEN I make it to a WP blog, I get a notification? I never get the emails though….

      Literally! The dermatologists hate me. And speaking of burns… I discovered a blister burn on my hand the other day. HOW DID I BURN MY HAND BADLY ENOUGH TO BLISTER IT, BUT NOT REMEMBER DOING IT!?

    Its funny I get emailed when you make a new post (but not when I comment). But Im not eve sure if people get notified by mine either, so I may just start writing back by email.

    And I got lake sunburn too.

      You may just have pushed the needle over to Disqus, Stephanie. And no, I hate to tell you, I’ve never gotten a notification that you’ve replied to any of my comments. It seems like such an obvious thing for bloggers to want, it shouldn’t be this complicated! Aloe, girl. Aloe.

    Hahahha that pool gif! Dying! Yay for getting through 8 running intervals! That’s so weird about the podcast though! At least you got through it today! I need to start it up again – I got a summer membership to our local health club which includes an outdoor pool and I plan on being there ALL SUMMER, so naturally this girl needs to get bikini ready (yeah right haha). Also, do you think you’ll go back into bridal consulting? Anywho, love you and I’ll let you know if I receive your reply!

      Outdoor pools are SO much better than indoor pools, it’s not even a competition. You and Noah should definitely spend as much time there as possible. I’d love to find my way back to bridal fashion, but it’s an oddly small society once you’re in the local/regional scene. I’d have to figure out how and where I’d want to get back in. Here’s hoping you see my reply!

Let me know your thoughts on this
