Fillin Friday

Another Friday - I need about 3 extra Fridays this month to finish some Christmas projects I got going. And to think I promised myself less stress this year - HA!

1. Friends are the best thing ever - I've got great ones!

2. Good health; it's nothing to take for granted.

3. I'm ready for going out to dinner tonight & enjoy the company of an old friend and a new friend.

4. Old Spice (my Dad used to wear it) is one of my favorite perfumes or aftershaves or smells.

5. The oldest ornament I have is , since my brother doesn't read this - I have the blue Silent Night ball!!! A very big deal in our family and it was wanted by both of us - Mom likes me best, she gave it to me!

6. Take some hot tea, honey, lemon & whiskey, mix it all together and you have an awesome hot toddy.

7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to dinner then working on Christmas gifts, tomorrow my plans include running....gulp.... 8 miles and packing up gifts to mail and Sunday, I want to work on Christmas gifts, watch the 'Fins win & enjoy the Niantic Christmas parade!

I emailed this, but the address when I reply to your comment shows as "no comment at blogger" so I don't know if you'll get it. This has been a mystery to me for a while now. So tell me if you got the following comment as an email as well:
I actually had this whole jogging route mapped -- I was supposed to run seven miles to stay on my training schedule.

Plan was scenic route to the gym = 1.5 miles, then run 4.5 on the treadmill, then short route home from gym = 1 mile.

I went outside for, like 3 seconds, then got in the car and drove to the gym and ran the 4.5 on the treadmill, then drove home. I should have done the seven on the tready, but I had a headache, sore foot, saggy underpants drooping down, etc etc etc. Basically, the dog ate my homework.

I will justify only going 4.5 on my "long" day by remembering that the original schedule I was using called for a fall back on the long run day every third weekend, and I gave that up because I wanted to press forward, so a fall back isn't going to kill me.

And since I DIDN'T GET REGISTERED IN TIME AND MY FREAKING HALF MARY IS FULL, I am in no hurry. If I "stick" at 10k until spring, I'll be okay with that. Wuss, much?
