Coming Soon

Oh, wow, it's already 6:00 PM and I haven't even started writing yet. I fell asleep at around 1:00 and took a very long (unintentional) nap--something I NEVER do. I'm fully convinced that I don't have COVID, despite the fact that Jerry got sick shortly before I did and he actually did have COVID. I took four tests over four days and all were negative. Also, I have all the symptoms of a sinus infection and I'm 99% sure that's what it is. It's been SO long since I've had a sinus infection!

I planned to write a post updating about my eating a vegan diet and how/if it's had an effect on my chronic pain. I want to write it, but my head is kind of foggy from my nap, so maybe I'll try it tomorrow. I hate that I slept my whole afternoon away! Jerry and the boys went to see a movie--I'm not even sure which one, but they like to go see superhero movies and things like that, so I usually use that time to have a quiet evening to myself. Now that I took a long nap, I'm probably going to use the alone time to clean up the house.

I'll write about this later after I finish my "experiments", but I got in the mood yesterday to try to change up some items in my wardrobe that I probably would have gotten rid of otherwise. I decided to lighten a couple of pairs of jeans, soften some stiff jeans with a few methods, and even figured out a solution to continue wearing a super cozy sweatshirt. A few of the experiments went entirely wrong, hahaha. Right now, I'm still working on a couple of others. Hopefully they turn out!

After that, I planned to turn this post into a post about transformation "fails". I've done so many projects over the years and there are tons that didn't turn out. Of course, we rarely share about our failures, but I thought it would be a fun post to get a laugh out of. However, I've been going through pictures and it's hard to find good ones! Probably because I'm less likely to take pictures of things that don't turn out. I know I have them, it's just hard to find them when I have 40,000+ pictures on my computer.

However, I still plan to do the post. I just need a lot more time to go through pictures. As I write this, it's now 8:30 and I still haven't eaten dinner. I'm starving! And I'd like to get *something* accomplished while the boys are out of the house--although looking at the time, they'll be home soon--haha. So, I'm just going to cut this off here, even though I didn't really write about anything. 

Someone emailed me at said I should do an "Ask Katie" series. I used to do that a long time ago but I guess I just feel vain for doing it. I don't even know what I could write about that I haven't written before! But if you're interested, please feel free to send me a question and if I get any, maybe I'll do an "Ask Katie" post once in a while.

I used to love writing those posts! People would ask about different running questions (I'm an RRCA certified running coach) or recommendations for products, or how to do something that I've posted about before, etc. Literally anything goes! If it's *too* personal I may choose not to answer it, but if you've been reading for a long time, you know that I am a pretty open book. So, if you have a question and you don't mind my sharing it (I can leave your name anonymous if you want), please feel free to email me at: katie (at) runsforcookies (dot) com. Even if it's a question I've answered before, the chances are likely that it's been a long time, so I can update.

Okay, I'm going to end this now before my stomach eats itself. And I can't find any pictures for this completely random post! So here is today's random fact of the day:


  1. I love the Ask Katie idea. And argh about Best Buy. I'm never surprised by that stuff, but who can you trust anymore?

  2. If the boys went and saw Dr Strange I'm curious what they thought! So many mixed reviews but I personally loved it. Wanda needs her own movie now, there's so much more to explore with her character! I hope your nap helped you feel a little better! Sometimes we truly need to sleep things off! Have a great weekend!

    1. Amanda... rarely do I get readers asking my opinion of some things. It's always nice to meet a fellow nerd. I loved the movie. The story wasn't anywhere close to what was rumored which kept me on my toes. The inclusion of other characters from other Marvel IPs just rolled out the carpet for more to come either from the multiverse or the Xmen/Fantastic 4. I would love to go into it more but the movie is still fresh, don't want to be the spoiler.

    2. Haha I always enjoy meeting fellow nerds as well!! Yes I hesitate to type out too many spoiler-heavy facts on the internet but I agree with everything you said! Definitely kept me on my toes! (And had me peeking through my fingers at some points, not going to lie! Lol)


I used to publish ALL comments (even the mean ones) but I recently chose not to publish those. I always welcome constructive comments/criticism, but there is no need for unnecessary rudeness/hate. But please--I love reading what you have to say! (This comment form is super finicky, so I apologize if you're unable to comment)
