Check yourself before you wreck yourself! And, about my face….

Wow. I sometimes shake my head at my own post titles. Like I have said before, I pretty much write the way I talk…..

I am such a germaphobe and never shower at the gym and I always disinfect my phone when I get home. I told Dan that I showered at the gym and he couldn’t even process it. He paused for a while and then was like…. “You showered there? With shower shoes? You just don’t do that”.

I decided to run today since we are getting snow….again. I won’t even bother complaining about it. I’ll let my text messages with my sister do the talking. Take a peak:
