Good morning,<br><br>
I know it's way too early and most of you will still be in bed for several more hours but it's Friday in most places now!<br><br>
I only have to work 3a-7a tonight after all. The triplets and twins we're awaiting aren't here yet so they didn't need me early.<br><br>
Went to see The Spirit of the Marathon last night and it was every bit as excellent as everyone said. Two huge thumbs up. Now, if I could have kept from getting lost in New Orleans, the trip would have been a lot better!<br><br>
Hope everyone has a great day.

morning <img alt="wave.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wave.gif"><br><br>
I got a call at 4:35 am that we have a snow day today. WTF?!!! I mean, I don't mind the day off right now, but I'm surprised we're closed today. SO, after double checking the school's site and making my 4 phone calls, I'm going back to sleep (if I can...) <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">

Good morning, folks. Taking a snow day myself. It seems pretty nasty out there, and I've got a ton of vacation/sick days lines up, so why screw with it? I'm about to go back to bed too. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
I never made it to Spirit Of The Marathon last night. <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"> It just didn't happen. Oh well. I hope it comes out on DVD soon. I assume it will; everything comes out on DVD, right? Right??

Good luck <b>Maureen</b>!<br><br>
And good morning everyone! It's a gorgeous day out there...from in here, at least. I think it's supposed to warm up from yesterday. So there's bad weather on the way? Usually when you guys get it, we get it shortly after.<br><br>
The girls are getting together tomorrow night. I haven't been out in ages. I don't even have anything funky to wear. Not like that's gonna stop me. I need a night out like you wouldn't believe.<br><br>
I read that Spirit of the Marathon will have some Canadian dates...so I'm hoping it comes somewhere close to here so I can go.

Bell's Porter is excellent. Rogue Mocha Porter as well. I love those two and I'm a tried-n-true hophead. Stouts you're on your own.<br><br>
Please tell me you're jealous of her day off Nettie, please. I'm so sick of the effin' snow.<br><br>
So who all saw <b>Spirit of The Marathon</b> last night and what did you think?

Ugh! Snow day here too. That means DD1 isn't going to school, which means DH is taking the truck to work, which means I can't go to the gym. And today was going to be my return to running after being benched for 2 weeks. Oh well. Tomorrow.

Good morning.<br><br>
No school here, either. I guess I'll be spending the day outside. The DDs are already ready.

All you snow day peeps are so lucky. <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"> It's a miserable gray, rainy, cold, windy day here. I've been waking up and hearing the rain outside the window all morning. I'm not gonna even bother to do my hair because it will just get wet walking to my car and into school. Going to a "girl's night in" birthday party (martinis and Sex and the City videos apparently). I hope it's not too late of a night because I am beat from this week. I can't wait till Spring break! (6 weeks away someone said yesterday!)<br><br>
Ok, I just saw the weirdest commercial- it was the "incredible egg" promo and they showed the last bit of a race (marathon? no idea) and there were all the folks running and one was a huge egg. After they crossed the finish, they egg cracked and a lady runner popped out with them saying "the incredible edible egg!" and something about protein and they showed an omelet.... I'm thinking most runners don't eat that before a race!! Odd...<br><br>
Anyway, great to see you <b>Clare!</b> Enjoy your night out!<br><br>
I'm gonna be late, so better go! TG freakin' IF! <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">

Snow day here too which would be great EXCEPT for the fact he DW never made it home from St. Louis yesterday. Her afternoon flight was cancelled and she couldn't get on another one. She's on a 6 AM flight this morning which is still on the runway - says it's delayed an hour but with the snow we're getting here I'll be surprised if it takes off anytime soon. And as I'm typing this she just e-mailed to say it was cancelled. <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif"> She's now trying to get to Baltimore.

Good Morning<br>
Both kiddos were well enough to go to school today. Life should be back to normal.<br><br>
To those of you with snow today, be careful. For once that particular storm by passed us. We will have a weekend filled with sun. Not very warm, but not any snow.

TGIF! Morning all. We are short two of our four workers at work today. I am making good progress on my massive project. Visualize it as a mighty redwood tree and I am hacking away at it with a pocket knife. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"> That's what it feels like hehehe<br><br><br>
Well I am so glad it's the weekend. I am so beat down on so many levels that I just need a weekend to sleep late and unwind.<br><br>
Have a great Friday all.

<b>kp</b>, there is no such thing as a snow day in Chicago, so it's definitely about the time off and not about the actual white stuff. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"> Longest. Winter. Ever.

Ok, so there's a bunch of snow and messy roads out there. Apparently the area where my school is (abt 15 mins from me) got the most snow in South Jersey. It's all fluffy right now -- the kids must be loving it because this is the first real snow we've seen this winter.<br><br><b>Jill</b> - if you can't get to the gym, have a snowball fight or go for a walk in the snow -- you'll get your heart rate up! <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br><b>Kp and Nettie</b> - I'm not a huge snow fan. I'm happy for the day off, though.

oh! CALLING ALL MINNESOTIANITES <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
Your Golden Gofer baseball team is playing a 3 game weekend series about a mile and a half from my front door beginning this afternoon. Erm..... I expect to hear a few knocks on my door. Don't you want to come down here and escape the cold??? Here's your excuse. Disclaimer: baseball games are optional <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
oh and I'm sure any guys from Minnesota can find a hotel room somewhere in town. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">

Good morning~<br><br>
It was freezing rain this a.m. and all the schools are closed. Well, all the K-12 schools anyway, not us. Fortunately I did not have to hack ice off my car, it glazed over the snow that was already on the car, so easy enough to knock off. My car is parked in a garage all day, thank goodness.<br><br><b>Moe-</b> I love your new avatar. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">
