<p>That's fun, right?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I may get to do that a few times this week.  Its our celebration week, starting with Dh's birthday today.  He gets what every dad wants for his birthday, watching a under 7 girls soccer game at 5:30 and Culver's for dinner.   Faaaannnncccy!</p>

<p>/Homer Simpson voice on</p>
<p>Mmmmmmm... caaaaake</p>
<p>/Homer Simpson voice off</p>

<p>Not fun:  I think Pippin has an ear infection.  I'm going to stop by the vet's this morning to see if by chance, they will give me some antibiotics without bringing the beastie in.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Speaking of beasties, they're barking their fool heads off at something.  Guess I should see what's amiss..</p>

<p>I get to make a site visit today to deal with a bit of a crisis.  I don't think that really counts as fun though.</p>

<p>Good Morning America is on. Robin Roberts is out on the plaza talking to someone. Dh walks in, looks at the tv, and says, "She's really tall. She's, like, <strong>Tonya</strong> tall."</p>

<p>Hello loves!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Busy busy around here.  Part of my busy is nonfun stuff but for a fun reason.  We FINALLY have another person joining our lab!  We so need the extra person and it is someone who I know well and am friends with and is very good at what she does.  So YIPEE!!  But the unfun part?  My boss walked me through the lab and asked me to clean out a space for her.  Um yeah, nice but I am a big old pregnant lady and you need lots of big equipment moved so come up with a plan B please!   Nope, I am still expected to get it done.  Plus all the junk that needs to be tossed is someone elses, make them do it!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Beautiful weather here, I am loving it.  Now to just find time to get out during the week to enjoy it!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Hope everyone has a great day! </p>

My birthday is Halloween.  I usually spend it trying to herd up sugar-enhanced children.</p>

<p>Yah.  The folks at the vet's office know me well enough so that they won't make me bring Pip in for a look-over.  I'll pick up some antibiotics at lunch for the beastie.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Funny moment from yesterday:  On the way home from spinning, I was part of a long line of cars, moving only at 10-15 miles an hour, following a dump-truck style of vehicle.  (kind that has two sets of rear tires).  Smoke was coming out from behind the vehicle, and although I couldn't see from my distance what was amiss, the little bits of tire that were littering the lane were a clear indicator.  Then after a while, the tire bits disappeared, and a set of white marks were being carved into the road.  Finally after about 4 miles, the driver pulled over to look at the back of the truck.  By then, there was NO tire left, and he had been essentially riding on the rim of the far back tire for a couple of miles.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>You'd have thought that the smoke seen in his rearview mirrors, plus the lack of speed, plus the difference in how the vehicle was handling would have told him to get off the road much faster.  Now instead of dealing with a flat, he likely had to call a tow truck.</p>

Doofus.</p>

<p>Today, I need to pick up the Gatorade for the Fiddlers Run (which happens this weekend).  I can't find my notes as to how much I usually buy, though.  Hmm...now, where did I put that.  I also have to buy other stuff for the stops: gummi bears, vasoline, kleenex, bandaids.  I like making sure my stops are well-stocked!  What else should I put there?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>From yesterday:  I think 4 marathons in 4 weeks is a bit obsessive.  But I've only ever done the one marathon, so what do I know.  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif" style="width:16px;height:16px;" title="">  All that man's toes were black...eeek.</p>

<p>morning all</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I was planning on getting up early to do some house work but my bed was so freaking comfortable and warm I just couldn't see the use in getting up early just to do the dishes.</p>

<p>Wippy...we are of a like mind, my friend.  My pans from supper last night are still sitting in the kitchen as I was too cozy to get up early.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>morning peeps!  I have a splitting headache and my 6mi commute today took 45+ mins again.  Grrrrrr.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I just ate a red bean paste bun for breakfast though and that was good.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Beaker, make a big show of NOT being able to move the equipment and then ask for help. <img alt=";)" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies//wink.gif" title=";)"></p>

<p>I more or less did last Thurs.  I spent the morning at my sister's finishing my niece's curtains, but the afternoon cleaning my house as I was having a house guest and I really needed to do some major cleaning, like mop the wood floors and dust.</p>

<p>So, I'm a little weirded out.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>When ex DH and I separated, we changed our FB profiles so that no relationship status showed...we removed the line from our profiles.  So it never said "it's complicated" or "single"...just went from "married to..." to blank.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>ex-DH is seeing someone, as am I.  I'm happy for him, I'm glad he is dating since he's a nice man and he should meet someone else.  I've known he was seeing her for a while, although when he first mentioned it, he wasn't convinced he was interested.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Last night, I noticed he changed his profile and his relationship status.  It's now "in a relationship with..."</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm not hurt, at least not really.  But I am sorta weirded out.  And a little bit affronted if that makes any sense.  Like it's too public or something.  I dunno.  Weird.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm just talking, I don't want advice or anything, just sorta venting.</p>

<p>Hi all - title of this thread is somewhat appropriate.  Having a rye roll from a local bakery smeared with <a href="http://www.amazon.com/gp/redirect.html?ie=UTF8&linkCode=ur2&camp=1789&creative=9325&tag=kickrunners-20&location=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.amazon.com%2FJustins-Nut-Butter-Organic-Chocolate%2Fdp%2FB002JG5TKE" rel="norewrite" target="_blank">Justin's Chocolate Peanut Butter</a> - if this isn't Nutella, I don't know what is, but there's supposed to be PB in there and it's delish.   BTW, their single packets are perfect for taking along hikes, based on last week's experiences<br><br>

Interesting - I won't comment on whether your DH's pronouncement is too public or not, but <strong>Bard</strong> and I were going through the same debate in relation to our FB statuses and formally announcing it for all to be seen.  It's a weird little Internet twist on the whole "Is he/she really going out with him/her?" question</p>

No, but now I'm inspired to do just that!  I was already taking some of the morning off on Friday for DD's ortho appointment, why not the whole day?  Get all my dUcks in a row.  (Yeah, not making that mistake again.)  Yardwork, garage cleaning, deck furniture put away, all that kind of stuff.  My next few weekends are pretty full otherwise: this weekend is DD's birthday celebration weekend, next weekend is camping, and the next weekend is marathon weekend.  So I could use a mental health/organization kind of day.  Plus, I thought DD might be uncomfortable after her ortho visit (installation) and may want to stay home.  She's really good about attendance so that would be fine with me.  Whee!  Thanks <strong>Wippy</strong>!  <img alt=":)" class="bbcode_smiley" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies//smile.gif" title=":)"></p>

<p>Yes and it's sooooo worth it!   One day I spent hours organizing our DVDs and creating a spreadsheet inventory of them all including a column called "loaded out to" <br><br>

<p>You may want some baby wipes (to clean up post-run(s)) but you probably have some of those on-hand  <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wink.gif" title="">   And yes, I totally meant to get in touch, got your mail - thanks!<br>
