Morning!<br>
Good luck to Kevin and Tonya!!! Is this your first purchase? I remember being wigged out by ours...and looking back I don't know why. Hopefully your wiggins will go away soon! We bought right before I started 70 work weeks and wrestling season started for mat...litterally had our old place packed up in the living room for 2 months. We also bought a home from a church (yeah, i dunno...) and had to wait for the church board meeting and vote on our offer.... we're looking at land right now that's owned by a school district...we don't learn. Enjoy, though! Its fun.

Yeah, good luck to <b>KP</b> and <b>Tonya</b> on the house hunting. As I stated yesterday, Maggie and I will be going thru the same thing very soon, I think. I checked our credit scores yesterday, and we're at 796 and 794. That's pretty good, right? Hopefully we can get a good deal...<br><br>
Ugh, it's Monday again...

Morning. I was pretty happy to wake up and see it just wet out there. No snow. Was worried it was going to be a messy drive today into work.

Good morning!<br><br>
Good luck with the offer Kevin and Tonya!<br>
I believe you will get an excellent rate with those scores Bob.<br>
No snow or rain for us overnight.<br>
Please send good vibes to my FIL. He is going in today for a cardiac procedure.<br>
Thanks!

Weather forecast was a big old miss - only about 3" on the ground. They had predicted 5-8 overnight, plus another 3-4 this morning. Kids still have a snow day.<br><br>
Very happy about the Giants. Still not sure how they won. Cowboys' coaching staff choked big time. Players too.

Morning all,<br><br><b>Bob</b> - Yeah.. that's a good score. I think the highest bracket is from 720 to 850, so you guys should be set on credit.<br><br><b>KP and Tonya</b> - Good luck! Can't wait to hear more and/or get some photos of the inside!<br><br><b>Eccabex</b> - Good vibes going out for ya.<br><br><b>McT</b> - Can't wait to have ya home again, woman. You've been missed!<br><br>
I am beat already. It was a very fun, but long weekend. Saturday evening, after dinner, we found a "Life is good" store. I just had to get a couple of shirts, and the hat listed below:<br><br><br><img alt="" src="http://i129.photobucket.com/albums/p236/ailarie/Running/LifeisGoodRunningHat.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br><br>
On Sunday, my army pen-pal Stephanie, was at the end of her R&R leave, and was at the airport, awaiting her flight back to Afganistan (sp?). We hung out for about three hours, and man.. what a riot of a time.<br><br><img alt="" src="http://i129.photobucket.com/albums/p236/ailarie/Misc/ElizabethandStephane.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br><br><img alt="" src="http://i129.photobucket.com/albums/p236/ailarie/Misc/ElizabethandStephane2.jpg" style="border:0px solid;"><br><br>
The second shot, we were trying to be "tough girls", and we were both cracking up, and couldn't hold the serious pose. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><br>
Too bad it was hot in the airport..we both look rather shiny from sweating a bit!<br><br>
Ironically, we talked about running, too! She has to be able to run 2 miles in 17 minutes for her PT tests, so she does a "sprint" / run slow / sprint type of thing. Her sprints, I'd never be able to keep up with (at least with my current level of training). However, we joked about how, if we ever ran in the same 10k, and ran our own paces, how by mile 3 or 4, she'd just be wiped, and I'd likely end up passing her since my endurance is better than hers.<br><br>
When she's not deployed, she lives about (correction from yesterday) 2-3 hours away. We decided that once she's back in 3-6 months, that we're going to find an "in the middle" race somewhere, and we're gonna run it together!<br><br>
Okies.. my dogs are giving me 'the look' to go outside. I'll check back in later! <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

Sad news from this area. A van carrying members of a boy's highschool basketball team crashed on friday night. They slid on the ice, hit a tractor trailer. 8 people died...7 of the kids and the wife of the coach. It's just so awful, all those lives lost. Good boys, a nice lady who was a teacher. I feel so sorry for all of them. They were only 5 minutes from home, too.<br><br>
We're getting more bad weather today. More snow. It's very grey out there.

good morning! <img alt="wave.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/wave.gif"><br><br>
My hopes for a delayed opening were rained out this morning. Rats. (<b>LL,</b> you were right, again <img alt="cool.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/cool.gif"> )<br><br>
Good luck with the house, <b>Kevin and Tonya</b>!<br>
Safe travels home, <b>Mary</b>!<br>
Good vibes to <b>Becca's FIL</b><br>

<b>Clare</b>: I'm sorry.<br><br><b>K&T</b>: Good luck with the house. I promise I won't tell you about the first house I bought and the 3 times we tried to close until after you are done! <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

Morning,<br><br>
Wow, <b>Colleen/Clare</b>- that's awful. Sounds like what happened here last year with that team from Ohio whose bus overturned on the freeway ramp and many players died. Prayers to those involved.<br><br><b>Ailarie</b> Cool pics! And I got your message. I will reply when I figure out my answer!!<br><br>
Not much else going on here. Signed up for the National Body Challenge (Discovery Channel) yesterday and already got a call from Bally's for my free training session. I'm going today after work! Hopefully this is the kick in the booty I need to get back into my regular routine. Of course, I hate the part where they go on and on about how great the machines/locker room are. :rollyeyes:<br><br>
Ok, gotta finish getting ready for work. Ciao bellas! <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

Good morning everyone.<br>
I'm home for a snow day! <img alt="icon_cheers.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/icon_cheers.gif"> (by way of the girls' school canceling...but hey, the effect is the same)<br><br>
I'm holding out hope that the delayed open at school extends to a full cancel so I won't have to go out tonight, either...<br><br><b>KP and Tonya</b> - congrats!<br><b>Becca</b> - good vibes sent<br><b>Ailarie</b>- sounds like a great time!<br><b>RTFL</b> - way to go! curious to hear how it goes.<br><br><b>clare</b> - that's terrible. what a sober reminder that it can all be gone so quickly. my heart goes out to the families directly affected, and your whole community. <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif">

Sorry to be such a downer. There's so many nice things to talk about. I guess that's the thing...we have to remember the nice things, to enjoy them and the people we care about. I just feel so bad for those kids. And the coach. He was driving the van.

KP and Tonya - Keeping fingers crossed! Good luck!<br><br>
Snow on the ground and more still coming down. Doesn't look to bad but it's the nice and heavy wet stuff.<br><br>
Got to meet <b>ncrg71</b> this weekend - no running - just coffee and fun conversation at the university bookstore. She's a fun one!<br><br>
My meeting for tonight has already been cancelled - love it when you suddenly get a free evening.
