<p>morning all</p>
<p>I had a good night of sleep until kitty woke me up at 3 something then I got allergies and spent the next hour sneezing.  So my awesome plan to sleep until 415 and then get up and go to work was thwarted.  Now I'm going to be cranky for our company carnival. </p>

<p>nope.  I started this after I got a massive sinus infection last October.  It's been 90% better lately which is a suprise so if it's just today I'll take it. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I freaking love that shirt? </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm going to print it  off and put it on my cube. </p>

<p>Excellent news, <strong>Maria</strong>!</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>Missy</strong>- You are amazing.  Delivery should be a breeze for you!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Yesterday was a rest day for me and I took full advantage of that.  This morning I'm heading out for 9 or 10 miles in the dark, the first few on a trail.  I feel like I should probably wear a headlamp or something. </p>

<p>That's great news about your sister, <strong>Maria!</strong></p>
<p> </p>
<p>It's gonna be a scorcher of a day today!  Kinda makes me want to be next to, or in, the pool rather than in my office.  Ah well, later!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I made banana muffins last night so I'm having one now.  Glorious!</p>

<p>Good morning!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>It's so rainy here. Blech! Oh well, we do need it.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>My back is feeling meh. I'm going to the doc on Friday. When I was describing what was going on to my SIL, she said it's exactly what was wrong with my BIL last year. I honestly think it's due to my core being so week. Eh, I'll survive.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Hope you start feeling better <strong>Wippy</strong>!</p>
<p>I want that shirt too, <strong>Moe</strong>!</p>

<p>I slept fine last night just wish I'd had more of it.  I'm starting to notice the shortening days.  I always first notice on Tuesdays, which is my volunteer night. There were a few a few clouds last night (not overcast), and I nearly needed to turn on my dashboard lights at 7:45 p.m. </p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm ready for the cooler fall weather but I'm going to miss the sunshine.  I wonder if it will be an easier transition this year, though, what with the Vitamin D?  Probably. </p>

<p>Have I said how I hate car salesman?  Even when negotiating via email, they're always so damn evasive.  They don't want to tell you about the extra fees (doc fees, DMV fees, etc) and hidden add-ons (useless overpriced mandatory security packages) even when you ask them point blank about these things.  Just freakin' tell me how much the car is gonna cost me!! </p>

<p>Rough on call night last night, so add me to the sleepy crowd.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>DD had homework last night, that she did cheerfully and with only a few "stay on task" nudges from me.   I hope this is a good sign for the year!</p>

<p>I just had a co-worker ask if it usually takes me a long time to wake up in the morning.  I think it was just a backwards way of asking if I was always as dopey as I look in the morning. </p>

1!!!! Going through that right now myself. Decided on the Highlander...a friend of mine works for Toyota and arranged for me to get $500 over invoice....only come to find out what the salesman told me invoice is and what my friend said are about $1975 different. Trying to figure it out now. Argh.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Sleepless night for me too-day 7 of the stomach nonsense...oh, and found out I'm anemic. Add that to the list of what's making me walk around like a zombie. Good times.</p>

<p>Great shirt!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I'm still completely overjoyed with the outcome of sis's surgery and talking to her I could tell just how relieved she was as well.   Thank you all for your thoughts & prayers!!</p>

<p><strong>Missy</strong> - is that little girl gonna come out today or what?  If you're around SoHo I'm in that office today, we could meet for lunch! </p>

<p>Hi all - getting to bed later than planned + being woken up in the middle of the night = <a class="H-lightbox-open" href="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/53717/width/1000/height/800/flags/" target="_blank"><img alt="sleep1.gif" class="lightbox-enabled" data-id="13315" data-type="61" src="http://www.kickrunners.com/content/type/61/id/13315/width/38/height/23" style="; width: 38px; height: 23px"></a></p>
<p>Break out the coffee!</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Great to hear about the <strong>PfeifferSis</strong>!  Speedy recovery vibes to her</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Going to be busy later on today - me and my sibs and assorted cousins are going to try to put together a schedule of events for my grandma's 90th birthday in Sept.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Fun shirt <strong>Maureen</strong>!  Maybe if <strong>Missy's watermelon</strong> sees that, maybe they'll want to get out here already.  And <strong>boB</strong> - that totally sucks.  I think I've determined if they try that tactic on me, I'm just going to walk out the door next time around.</p>
<p> </p>
<p><strong>re: Running In The Dark</strong> - at minimum, a reflective vest.  Sometimes I bring along a headlamp, especially for somewhere I don't normally run</p>

<p>Bob, i don't know if I really told the story of my car purchase, but suffice to say, I wasn't giving an inch and they sent in every salesman they had there that day I think.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>My experience buying my car wasn't great but I was proud of myself for negotiating the price I wanted and not backing down.  Mind you, I went in saying, "I want a wagon or hatchback and I won't buy an American car...I want the Subaru that brought me in but if you have anything else, I'm open."  After test driving Tad, and trying to negotiate on it...and not getting anywhere, one of the managers came over to my salesman and said, "I have the perfect car for you!"...and then showed me, if I'm not mistaken, a <em>Buick sedan.</em> <img alt="" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/huh.gif" title="">  I looked at the guy and said, "really??? does that car seem like the right car for me when I said a non-American wagon?????"</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Idiot.</p>
