You Say “Excuse,” I say, “Reason”

Yes, it’s still Wednesday, and that means it’s time for five things.  As a little background, I gotta tell you, I don’t feel well at all.  Here are five reasons/excuses I haven’t laced up the running shoes yet this year …

1.)  Three Sick Daughters.  All three Sprightly Daughters have been in various stages of illness since, oh, about the first day of Christmas break.  I hear you, that’s them, not me.  Let me explain to those of you without young’uns in the house:  When the little ones are sick, your attention is required all day and all night.  Which means you don’t sleep.  To which I haven’t felt like adding an extra level of exhaustion.

2.)  Pink Eye.  Yeah, I got one.  No, it has nothing to do with any form of exercise.  It just pisses me off.  It’s mostly cleared up, thanks for asking.

3.)  My Back Hurts.  I think it has something to do with number 2, below, but it really hurts.  Doesn’t make me want to run.

2.)  Some Kind of Infection.  I don’t know exactly what, but I got this low-grade fever, body aches, upper respiratory infection thing that’s just making me feel really bad.

1.)  It’s cold outside.  Seriously, I’m not committed enough to running to get up when it’s still dark and 23 degrees outside.  Maybe if I ran more I’d get addicted and have to do it, even in this weather.  Not yet.

I know, wah, wah, poor me.  Seeing the doc in the morning.  I’ll be back to my chipper self soon enough and then I’ll start pounding the pavement.

Just wanted y’all to know I haven’t forgotten about you, I’m just annoyed.

But thanks for reading!
