Sum It Up Sunday | Shenanigans Loses It

Sharing is caring!

And by loses it, I mean…. loooosseesssss itttttt.

My Mojo.? My discipline.? My miles.? My ability to clean.? My curler pins.

Not mine.  Because, you know, I lost mine.  Thanks, Amazon, for the picture.

Not mine. Because, you know, I lost mine. Thanks, Amazon, for the picture.

That last one was the icing on the cake, y’all.

Flashback to last week.? I was going along just fine, blogging 3-4 times a week, selling my beloved Jamberry, running 3-4 times a week, and hitting the gym.

Things were grooving and I was feeling pretty good about life!

Then… BAM.? I go out of town.

And had an amazing time. When there’s characters like this in town, how can you NOT have an amazing time?

Jedi Gary Type A 14

Stop me if you’ve heard this one before: A Jedi, a blogger and a Sith Lord walk into a #DisneySide party…

I also learned a ton.? And came back ready to take on THE WORLD!

But something happened.

Um…? nothing happened.

I’m sure you noticed my lack of content on the site this week.? It’s not that I don’t have anything to write about (I have LOADS I need to share with you, I promise!)

It’s that I just can’t seem to get it all on here.? You know that Zoolander scene?

Well, no, they aren’t.

The files are IN my head.? And it’s hard to focus to get them out right now.

So yeah- example A- right NOW I should be writing a post about how much I love DecalGirl Skins (goodness- they rock, and I really do think you guys will love them!) Or I could be drafting a post on the Star Wars Rebels screening I attended today (LOVE LOVE LOVE and can’t WAIT for this one to come out!).

Or hey, there’s that whole “training” thing I should be talking about.


But instead I’m whining to yall about how things are just out of control.

Let’s talk about just HOW out of control.

I looked around the other day and decided my house had given up on me.? I’m not an uber clean freak, but I am one of those “everything has a home- send it to it’s HOME, y’all.”

Nothing- and I mean NOTHING- in my house was in it’s home.

The Laundry?? Yo, the laundry has won.


It’s freakin EVERYWHERE.? I don’t even know where it starts and ends.? It’s all clean- or, well… was.

Probably not now that it’s fallen on the floor and the yellow lab made a nice little nest of it.? Ahem.? He’s not clean either, in case you were wondering.

If I didn’t have kids who emptied and filled the dishwasher, we would be on one of those hoarders shows I bet.

Oh- oh…. Shoes!? Why on earth do we have so many shoes?!

I can’t believe how many pairs of flip flops, tennis shoes, runners, sandals and baseball cleats we own.? And they are all in the middle of the hallway or living room or random stair.

What the HEY, kids.

The straw that broke this Mommy’s back came this morning as I got ready for the screening.? I took a shower, washed and dried my hair really fast, knowing I was putting the curlers in so I could rush out the door and not be late.

Can’t. Find. The Curler Pins.

I took them on the road last week- and know I brought them home.? But they are missing.

Probably hiding somewhere under the mountain of laundry.

Or the hill of laundry.

Or maybe under that little island of laundry over there….

Without curlers- yes, I recognize that I am the last woman under the age of 50 that still uses hot rollers- my hair is just a big frizzball of brown.? It’s not pretty.

I had to go with plan B.? Thankfully, I was able to pull off Plan B.


Luis Marcus, inventor of the bobby pin, I thank you.


It worked, but it was the final push to get my crap together.

Lawdy…. someone send me a personal assistant, a time manager, and while you’re at it, a maid and cook would be nice!

So here’s a quick sum it up Sunday:

Weight loss:? stalled.? Sonofab….

Running:? stalled.? My own mental fault.? I let the Disneyland Half get into my head and I haven’t gotten out past 5 miles since.

That was a month ago.? No bueno.

The List😕 stalled.? I think the biggest things on there I should be looking at are the cleaning schedules and less internet time.

Hellloooo… kinda go hand in hand, right?

What’s on the agenda this week?

First, I’m ordering new curler pins.? I mean, priorities, right?

Then I’m cleaning my damn house tomorrow.? We’ll go to church, pray for energy and clarity, and then it’s SO on.

I also want to remind y’all to enter the Esprit de She giveaway!? Ends tomorrow night.

I’ll have two giveaways for you this week.? I’m excited to get these going.

One is from the aforementioned DecalGirl.? I love these products and you will too.? Have you ever seen anything so gorgeous?

Decal Girl 3

The other will be a HUGE- and I do mean HUGE!- giveaway of Jamberry products.

I’ve got a nice little giveaway prize pack coming your way.? You might want to check out my website and look around.? One of the prizes will involve you choosing a sheet of jams ON ME.

Mad Mod

If you have any Jamberry questions, be sure to shout them out (here, on my FB page, or send me an email!)

Tuesdays on the Run: topic will be your favorite mileage for a race.? Are you a sprinter or a marathoner or an ultra whackadoodle?? Tell us all about it on Tuesday and link-up!

How was your week?? Better than mine?? Shout out any motivational strategies you have for me!

There must be something in the air!!! I'm sitting here, reading and commenting while my tablet sits on the little, itty, bitty part of my dining room table that is not full of junk. When you find that cook and maid, send them my way when you're done!

Sometimes life just gets out of's to a week of productivity coming up!

I am looking forward to that Jamberry giveaway :0)

Love that you always keep it real! That sounds about like my laundry situation right now! lol.

Will you be at the Tower of Terror 10-Miler this weekend?

Um... least productive blogging week ever but it was my birthday. I need to start making lists I am super far behind...but hey, life she is one busy lady.


Sunday 28th of September 2014

Thanks for keeping it SO real! I often wonder how others can run a blog, train for upcoming races, do laundry, clean house, raise kids, and then do their own personal work/business. (and not to mention attend to pets and husbands). Can it really ALL be done seamlessly?


Sunday 28th of September 2014

Oh, and clearly my training is the least of my focuses. I'm still in the "complete" not "compete" phase of running. If I ever move into the compete level- well- I can only imagine what would have to change in my world!


Sunday 28th of September 2014

In brief spurts- YES. But then I crash and burn spectacularly. ha! I have NO idea how moms/wives/runners who also work full time out of the house do it all. The only way I can juggle is because I can work at 2am if I "need" to, you know?
