The SnowFlake Necklace.

Yet again my blog has been left unattended to for days and days and days.....

I have nothing to write that is running or drinking related.  I do have a funny story to share though!!

Background story: 
The first year that my husband and I were together, he bought me a heart locket for Christmas.

The second year that my husband I were together, he bought me a heart locket for Christmas.

The third year......get it???  Okay....

So THIS year (year 12), our local jewellery store places their annual flyer on our door.  In it I find a snowflake necklace that I LOVE!!!

I bring the flyer to the dining room table and show my 2 boys, 5 and 7, and my husband my deepest Christmas desires.

I then explain, kindly, to my children that mommy doesn't really like hearts and to keep that in mind for future presents.  Stars, diamonds, and, especially, snowflakes are great though!!

We finish our supper and proceed with our evening plans of grocery shopping.

After we're done at the store, we drive around to look at Christmas lights.  I felt this was the perfect time to question whether or not my family understand my Christmas needs for this year.  

This is the conversation:

Me:  Hey guys, do you remember what Mommy wants for Christmas?

Reid (7): A snowflake necklace.
George ( the husband): A heart locket......right Heath???
Heath (5): ................Shut yer face, Dad.
Best night ever.

Drunken Jenga

My husband and I are avid game players, as well as avid drinkers.  What could possibly be better than turning Jenga into a drinking game?

Making the game takes a little bit of time.  Each block needs an instruction.  The rules below allow for 3 blocks of each rule, with 3 blank blocks.  You can leave the last 3 blank, pick your 3 favorite rules to use again, or make up 3 completely random rules!  Try to use a permanent pen that doesn't bleed too much.  Write in large block letters.  Once you have the blocks all written out, you're ready for Drunken Jenga!

Boo!  I'm back.  
I've been a little MIA.  My stupid depression hit crazy hard this summer and it took me quite a while to get it under control.  I'm finally getting my shit together after figuring out a few things that I need to do to simplify some of the things in my life.  Things are going much better now!  I have a few appointments coming up to help determine what I can do to get this under control more long term.  Oh....the battle....
So, one of the things that I decided to do make life simpler was to only focus on this one blog: The Drunk Runner.  I really don't have the time or desire anymore to have 4 different blogs running with 4 different topics, so now you're going to get them all here!  Yay for you!  Most of my content on my other "blogs" is rather pointless and contains a lot of venting, but some of them are rather funny.  While going through them, I came across this and thought I would share it with you.  I had started a blog to rant about my…

Positivity, People.

Yesterday, a fitness account that I follow on Twitter posted this picture and I had retweeted it.  I've seen this picture a few times before and I really didn't think too much of it until I noticed today that a friend of mine had commented on it.  Her reply was "Nice use of shaming. I give it an A plus in ignorance. Working out does not always equal being fit and vice versa."  Based on this comment, I started a couple heated discussion in regards to this picture and the message that it is suggesting.To me, this picture says “ if you aren’t willing to put in the effort, then you don’t deserve the results” (which I believe to be 100% true), but to others it seems to have a much more negative message.
