Good Morning <b>Roo!</b> Nice to see you up and about so bright and early. It's all of 4 - freakin' a.m. here, and I'm still at work. Ugh. Heading home for a few hours of sleep, then back here for more fun, fun, fun. Can't believe I used to do this shit 2 or 3 times a week while I was in trials....
Howdy. Happy hump day... <img alt="banana.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/banana.gif"><br><br>
I went to the doctor last night to discuss the results of the physical I got recently. My blood work shows my cholesterol has dropped to 161. I think it was around 173 a year ago. The only problem is that my good cholesterol is 39, which is a bit low. But at least the overall is good and the ratio is good. The doc seems happy, so I'm happy...<br><br>
Umm, not much else to say...
Seriously, <b>Gov</b>, I'm officially going to stop complaining that I was at work until 8 yesterday. I've only overnighted at work a few times and I don't miss it at all. I hope the crazy schedule ends soon!<br><br>
You know when you have one of those mornings where everything you put on looks stupid and ugly and something you wore just last week now seems to wash you out? Yeah, it's that kind of morning. I'm still contemplating changing my shirt.<br><br>
I hope you all have a fantastic day!
I was going to say that I'm really tired and that's all I got.<br>
But after reading <b>Gov's</b> post...I guess I'm not that tired.<br><br>
Been a while for an all nighter for me. Hate 'em...just hate 'em.<br><br>

Hi <b>Dan!</b> <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><br><b>all-nighters</b>: this is pretty much my life, but without being at work. f'ing sleep issues <img alt="huh.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/huh.gif"><br><b>mandy</b> - saw you mention a <i>tugboat</i> the other day... what's the story there? I have an uncle named Tug <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif">
Last night DS#2 was sitting on the stability ball telling me how easy it is to keep his balance. 30 seconds later, both he and the ball are rolling. He hit the corner of the wall, has a big goose egg on the back of his head, bruise right between his shoulder blades and a bruise on his shoulder. I will be surprised if he makes it through a full day of school today. While that was happening, DS#1 was having a mirgraine. Ran to the medicine cabinet to get medicine, someone had taken the last pill and left the empty container. Dispatched a dazed looking hubby to the store to get more medicine for DS#1. My workout was pretty non existant last night.
dang <b>Colleen</b>. Those menfolk in your house are a constant source of work for you aren't they? Take care of those boys.<br><br>
Not much going on here. I think I will break the pattern and get out of the house tonight. <b>Bob's</b> gaters are coming in for a great SEC showdown in basketball. Should be a nice game with a one loss home team playing a visiting, two loss, defending national champs team. I should go as I have a courtside pass. Need to take advantage of it. I will probably sit at the scorers table with the radio crew. No work for me as that doesn't involve as much as a football broadcast. They were just nice enough to get me a pass in case something did come up and I could help so some support work at a game.<br><br><b>Solar</b> I had a rough night sleeping as well. Not one but two very vivid, very colorfully real bad dream scenarios. One concerned a sudden serious health issue with a close family member. *shudder* Needless to say I did not get a restful night sleep when you are fully awoken (?) twice during the night. I don't feel rested and thus that's why I didn't get up at 5:45 to go running- I needed that extra 1:15 to keep from dragging today. Yeah it's an excuse but a valid one I feel. <b>Solar</b> I wish you success over this trouble you are having.
((((<b>Colleen</b> & family))))<br><br><b>Gov</b>- weren't you changing jobs recently to minimize the crazy hours?<br><br><b>boB</b> - good health news. I have a checup in Feb, looking forward to seeing what has improved in a year.<br><br><b>solar</b> - explain your avatar - is that you as a kid? It's cute.<br><br>
At the risk of losing my man card, <i>Girlfriend</i> by Avril Lavigne is a great running song. Came on at the gym at about mile 8.5 of this AMs 10 miler, gave a nice boost of energy.
Good vibes to ailing kiddos out there and a huge yippe to the <b>Hankster!</b> Working out food allergies can be rough, good luck! My sweetie Princess was allergic to soy and beef. What kind of goofy dog is allergic to beef?! But we managed!<br><br>
Went to a Penn basketball game with my dad and brother last night, good time but crappy game. I think I could have hit more from the foul line than Penn did!<br><br><b>KP and T</b> when I made the offer on my house, the people called me back about 2 hours later to say they wanted me to have the house. The wife had grown up in the house, bought it off her parents when she got married. She said she got a good vibe from me and I fit her idea of who should be in that house. SO the offer part was easy...then it got nuts after that! It was a for sale by owner and I luckily hired a fabulous lawyer to combat their super crappy lawyer.<br><br>
I feel for you all with long hours. On rare occassions I have to pull late days. DH has insane hours during the season. Worst was 13 out of 14 days working from 9am till past midnight, a couple of days way later when the game went into extra innings. But then again, I would rank his job way more fun than most so not too much sympathy for him.<br><br>
Ok, can not avoid work any longer! Have a great day folks!
house update - in a holding pattern. Sellers asked for an extension on the time frame to consider our offer. Has to do with the furnace - original to the house (50+ years old) and not working correctly. They are trying to determine if it is fixable or needs to be replaced before they accept/counter/decline our offer. Feeling better about the situation though.<br><br>
all nighters at work - my professions equivalent is preseason practices, with football being the worst. Nothing like arriving at the athletic training room at 5 am to get ready for the day and knowing that the day won't end until about 9:30/10 pm when the players are done with meetings only to have to do it again the next day.
