Friday Five #69

Guys. Woof. I am glad it's Friday. But, there is no rest for the wicked, plenty of plans this weekend, some early Father's Day celebrations and a Bachelorette party, plus maybe a trail run? We shall see.

one // I was out for a leisurely bike ride Thursday morning, about 1.5 miles away from my car. When I rounded a bend where they were doing road work and with no warning the sidewalk and bike lane were totally blocked off. I swerved to miss hitting the blockade but my bike tire caught the edge of the sidewalk and I totally bit it.

PSA : This is why you always wear your helmet. I hit my face hard, but my helmet saved me from busting my head open.

A few folks stopped to help me, and genuinely, I was more stunned than hurt when I first fell. I rode the 1.5 miles back to my car, and that was when I started to hurt. My hand especially. I think I landed on it? Or my bike did? Or something. It had gotten worse throughout the day today (Thursday) so stay tuned since I'll probably have a hot date with Urgent Care later tonight. I'll keep y'all updated on Insta. And I'll be giving this bike riding bit a rest since my bike needs some TLC before he's ready to ride again.

two // One of these things is not like the other...alternate caption, 1 cider, 3 stouts. Met up with Gretchen & Mr. Gretchen, and dragged along Mr. Sass to trivia at Whole Foods Pub on Tuesday. We came in dead last, but my raffle ticket won me a $15 gift card. And, I'll brush up on my Katy Perry song knowledge for next time. But our team name, Twist and Stout was on point.

three // I totally nailed my meal prep game for lunches this week. And my veggie intake.

four // Can I take a cop out since my face is all busted & skip #4? How about Mr. Sass just texted to tell me that the storm ripping through just tore all the lattice off our back porch. I don't think today is our day. I think we should just go to bed, let the universe re-set and try it again tomorrow. Honestly.

five // A fewwww funnies before my brain runs out of steam here.

What are you up to this weekend?
What was your last injury?
Or last time you broke something?
