We had a rough weekend. It should have been a nice date night. My in-laws took the kids to their place to stay the night this time. We went to the Royals ball game with another couple, but Hubby and I got into it before we went. Hubby bounces back so quickly after someone offends him or at least that is the way he acts. I mean less than five minutes kind of bouncing. It takes me hours sometimes days especially if I’m really mad. I felt like I did a pretty good job of still having fun at the ball game this time.
We tried to get to bed as early as we could. The Royals won, but we left a little before the game was done. We kind of knew our team had this one. So that helped our bed time a bit, but we did not eat at the game. We had greasy food later. I was concerned for the race the next day.
Hubby and I got into again the next morning. I try to communicate as best as I can. You would think after almost ten years of marriage that we would know how to do things without offending each other so much.
We left at least fifteen minutes later than we intended. Hubby was a little worried about catching the shuttle to the start of the CCVI Trolley Run. It’s a one way race from the Waldo area to the Plaza. There was a huge line for the buses. Once we got parked in one of the garages we had a bit of a walk to find the end of the bus line. Even though the line was long, it moved fairly quick. We were on a bus in no time.
We were still on the bus when the race was supposed to officially start. It was a lot warmer for this race than the last two weekends. It was still a little chilly and Hubby wasn’t a big fan of waiting around for the start. One of the other things we do not have in common is sense of time. For me all this tardiness made me stressed and nervous. Our pace group had not left yet when we walked up to the corral. A lady had a rope and looked like she wasn’t letting people through. We could have run with the other pace group, but I wanted to run with the 40 minute pace group. She let some other people under the rope. So we went as well. I think for Hubby all this was perfect timing to him. No stress for him, but super stressful for me.
Nothing to report that was out of the ordinary during the run. I passed the bacon stop and all the water stops. I just wanted to finish. That and I still had a lot of anger and energy to burn. You would think that would have given me a good time but I finished in 41:20. Hubby finished in 37:55.
The after party isn’t too bad. We skipped the pizza this year. We got chocolate milk, lemonade, water, a roll, and I think what was called power balls. The band was good. Hubby was kind of piddling around and I wondered why since we bought tickets for the Avengers: Infinity War movie a few days ago. We had tickets for the 11 AM show that day. By this time we were good with each other. I reminded him of the time and he admitted he thought we were watching the noon show.
We booked it home to shower and get ready for the movie. We probably could have gone straight from the run because it was closer, but we had some time. The movie was good, but man, that ending! I won’t spoil it, but I will say I needed like an after-show to process everything I just saw. You know like Talking Dead with Chris Hardwick that comes on to talk about The Walking Dead. Whew! It was rough.
After we left the show we met my in-laws to get the kids. They informed us that they rented Coco but they had not watched it yet. We saw it in the movie theater with the kids, but my in-laws had not seen it. We decided to all go back to their place to watch it. We had pizza for dinner with them and then headed home.
The day started rough but we ended on a good note. We had two tired kiddos when we got home. After we put the Littles to bed we actually watched Fear The Walking Dead and of course Talking Dead after it. There he was, Chris Hardwick. Thank goodness because Fear had a big loss as well. I’ve never had such a rough day of losing so many beloved fictional characters. I mean you know they are not real, but dang! You still get the feels.
Sidenote: I forgot that this wasn’t published and left it in my drafts. This was written before all the accusations about Chris Hardwick went public.
