Daily Happenings, Running

A Very Monday Like Monday

Happy Tuesday! Thank you for stopping by. How was your Monday? I hope it was better than mine. Have a great day 🙂


The morning started pretty normally with no issues. I had peanut butter cookie dough overnight oats in the fridge. After two weeks without them, I was craving them! They hit the spot and kept me full until lunch at work.


Work was going well…until I spilled my water bottle all over my desk. I really need to keep it higher up so this doesn’t happen. It’s the second time it’s happened to me in recent months too. I only had one paper towel in my desk so instead of awkwardly getting them from the bathroom so I used old papers I had on my desk to wipe it up. I didn’t recycle them but I reused them so it’s still okay for the environment right?


After work, I was excited for an easy 3 mile run. It was another hot day here in central New Jersey, but I made the most of it knowing it’s going to cool down at the end of the week. I listened to Sworn podcast on my run. It looks at different crimes and talks to law enforcement, people that knew the victims, and looks at evidence. As I was running, a guy yells out the window of the truck at me which just made me so mad. I don’t know what he yelled, but I assume it was a crude remark which just annoyed me to no end. I was in a tank top and shorts, leave me alone you gross pig.

Once I was home, stretched, showered and in pjs, I tackled a few cleaning tasks that needed to be done. Normally we’ll clean on the weekends but this past weekend we had so much to do that cleaning didn’t happen. I was still annoyed from spilling my water bottle and the guy from my run but I laughed out loud at this video I saw as I scrolled through Facebook. I’m against animal cruelty but if the mom pig does it to the baby then it’s not as bad right? A mother wouldn’t hurt her baby and it really just put a smile on my face.


Then it was time for dinner. I had minimal work to do since we threw some brats onto our George Foreman. We heated up some leftover rice and paired it all with some salad. Delicious and simple. \

After dinner, I got comfortable on the couch and finished “Secrets of a Charmed Life” by Susan Meissner. If you haven’t read it, go pick it up from your library!! I loved it so much. It’s about two sisters during World War II who are evacuated from London but a war event changes the course of their lives. A history student at Oxford is interviewing a 93 year old woman who lived during the time. It’s suspenseful but not in the typical suspense way since it’s more of an emotionally suspense. I was curious what would happen the whole time and adored the ending. Alex and I watched some “Arrested Development” to wind down and relax then headed to bed.

Question of the day: What’s a high from your Monday?

  1. I feel for you with the spills, I feel like I am forever spilling my water bottle, I actually dropped a gallon of milk a couple weeks ago and it exploded everywhere. 😩 Hope you have a better day today.


  2. I seriously hate when people yell at you when you’re running! It’s often not something very nice/respectful and it also scares the living crap out of me! Or when people beep their horns. So rude! lol Is it bad that the high from my Monday was getting off a three day stretch? haha. And drinking a glass of wine. Hope you have a great week!!


    1. I was pretty invested into my podcast so I have no clue what the guy yelled but I’m 98% sure it was not nice or respectful. Unless I’m in danger please don’t yell or honk your horn at me!
      No that’s not bad at all that that’s your high!! I love having a glass of wine after work on random week nights.
      Thanks for stopping by today Amanda! I hope you have a wonderful day 🙂


  3. Ugh I’m sorry you didn’t have the best Monday 😦 I hate when people yell at me when I’m running!! So rude.

    I’m definitely adding “Secrets of a Charmed Life” to my to-read list!

    Hope you have a good Tuesday.
