Thinking Out Loud #4

Helloooo Thursday!  This week has just flown by which is weird because it's not like I've been insanely busy.   I'm actually ok with these winter days flying by.  It just means that Spring will be here before I know it. 

Since it's Thursday and it's time for some Thinking Out Loud, I'm sharing a few things that have been on my mind for the last week.  And of course I'll be linking up with Amanda to spread the randomness around.

1.  I can't get enough of the Olympics...when I get to watch it.  I'm cursing Facebook and twitter for ruining the surprise of things though.  There's nothing more annoying than logging on to Facebook and seeing that stupid "trending" news feed filled with Olympic medal news.  Talk about spoiling the surprise.  I know I could choose to not log into Facebook, but let's be real people, that's not going to happen.

2. Not only am I irritated with winter but so is my skin.  My hands can't handle these freezing cold temps.  I have had more cracked, dry skin and broken nails this winter than I can ever remember having.  Thank goodness for this:

 3.  Not So Fun Fact:  I have run on the treadmill 7 times in the last 6 weeks.  That is more than once a week.  Last winter I think I ran on the treadmill a total of 3 times. So not cool.

4.  I'm embarrassed to say that this jar is almost finished and I only bought it a couple of weeks ago.  I clearly have a problem.

5. I heard a rumour that it was supposed to warm up so I checked Accuweather and this is what I found.  I'd be lying if I said I didn't do a happy dance when I saw this.  I know it can change but this is giving me hope that the crap is coming to an end!!!

6.  I'm SO looking forward to getting together with these two ladies this weekend.  We've been friends since grade ONE.  That's oh, only 36 years.  Geez I'm old.  It's been far too long since I've seen either of them so I can't wait!

Kim & Eileen my two best buds from grade one!  Taken at my wedding almost 10 years ago.  I'm pretty sure this was the last time that all 3 of us were together. 
 7.  I have my first race of the year in 17 days (The Chilly Half Marathon).  I'm hoping the above pictured forecast holds true.

8.  One random thing most readers don't know about me:  I'm a huge Ebay shopper.  It's ridiculous how much of my stuff comes from Ebay.  For New Year's I vowed that I wasn't going to buy anything from Ebay for the entire month of January.  It's now February 13th and I'm proud to say that I have not bought a single thing.  I think our upcoming European adventure is what's keeping my credit card firmly planted in my wallet.   Priorities, baby.

Your turn!  Tell me something random!!

I can definitely relate to the dry skin and nails thing! It's getting kind of ridiculous, actually. My hands have been SO dry, and I've been breaking nails left, right, and center, which is annoying since they're usually fine. Oh, and don't even get me started on my hair. Grrr. Is it spring yet? /rantover

I am with ya on the Olympics! I hate people or news that send out spoilers before I can watch them int the evening. I am actually avoiding Facebook and Twitter right now, I check it in the evenings only after I have watched the events.

I received a box of Aveeno Baby Eczema cream samples at work. I love that stuff for my hands...I put it on during the day and it lasts through multiple washings. Since I'm a nurse practitioner, I wash my hands probably 75+ times/day. No cracking this far...
