I am the treadmill’s bitch

So today just sucked… It’s a little better now, but it sucked. Nothing sooo horrible happened… I was just in a really negative mood from the time I woke up ….and then work was sort of craptacular, as some big changes were made yesterday, and it’s taking quite a bit of time to really adjust to them… These changes caused us to have to stay late. I left for work around 815am and got home at 815pm. Argh.

When I got home, I decided I need to hit the treadmill and work off some of my rage…and calories (Christmas cookies…yum). Feeling much better now, but maaan, that treadmill bitch slapped me tonight. It’s sooo different from running outdoors… I think it’s more difficult. I have trouble keeping a nice even pace… I’m sure I’ll get used to it eventually.

Shortly after I got off the ‘mill, my brother came home from work and he got on it for a bit… Is it wrong that that sort of bothered me a little? That’s my toy (seriously– it’s my Christmas gift). Running’s my hobby. Dude, go smoke some pot and drink a 6-pack… that’s your hobby. Meh. It’s good for him. I know it’s stupid of me. As long as he’s not on it when I want to use it. It’s bad enough there have been a few times I’ve had to cut my runs short, because he’s having friends over (my treadmill’s in the basement, where he and his friends hang out).

Okay, I’m done with my childish rant. What else is new?

I took yesterday off from work and did all of my holiday baking. I made oatmeal cookies with white chocolate chips and cranberries, chocolate pepermint fudge, and pecan tassies. I also helped mom with some of her baking. Between the two of us, we have 12 different types of cookies. This is actually about normal (if not a little less than normal) for us. And you wonder why we’re a bunch of fatasses. Oh well, Kevin’s family’s getting a tray, I’m bringing a tray to work, mom’s taking a tray to work, my borther may bring one in to work, and then we’ll have some left over for when people come around for the holidays.

Giants totally sucked out this weekend. Once again, I can’t say I’m surprised. They fell apart mid-season and just haven’t been able to get it back together. The coaching is crap, our defense has been pretty bad, our offense isn’t really what it should be… our QB… well, he’s Eli. I don’t know if he’ll ever be great (like Peyton), but with proper coaching, he’d be a HELL of a lot better. Some serious changes need to be made in the off season.

Okay, that’s all for now… Kate needs to sleep.
