I just want to bang on the drum all day....

I am so happy it's Friday, for no particular reason other than I love the weekends - but who doesn't. Work is keeping me busy - yea I have been able to get up the driveway every morning - yea - I have 2 Christmas presents knitted already - yea and I'm running 9.5 miles tomorrow - Ok - not so yea. But I think it will be our last serious long run until the half marathon and Dolan, I am not ignoring your amazing, great idea to run a half in NYC at the end of April. I think I'll have to answer that question on Feb 23 - the day after the Hyannis half mari.





The AT&T repair guy is coming out Sunday to see if we should be able to get DSL - my vote is he will say , sorry you guys can't get it and then proceed to get stuck going up the driveway leaving. I'll let you know what happens - have a great weekend!





1. Oh, I am so happy it's Friday!


2. For the most part I like changes, big and little.


3. During a sad movie or while watching Extreme Makeover Home Edition, I always cry.


4. Running 9.5 miles; are you kidding me???


5. Right now I'd like to be home with the kitties, by the fire, with a nice glass of wine watching Hubby cook me a wonderful dinner and then watching him do the dishes.


6. I guess my computer, is my favorite gadget.


7. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to relaxing a little but having a pretty full schedule, tomorrow my plans include running 9.5 miles & eating breakfast with training buddy that will feature BACON, then going to a symphony concert and out to dinner in New Haven Saturday night and Sunday, I want to sleep in as always and maybe read one of the ten million library books I have or quilt or knit!

Thanks, Princess and Mr & Mrs Training Buddy for my great catnip cigar!

I know, I think I am crazy to sign up for the 1/2 after the last disasterous one...but a "womens only" run in NYC...to good to pass up! Can't wait to see you next month :)

9.5 miles? Well, you have left me IN THE DUST. My last "long run" was seven and I'm going to shoot for 7.5 or 8 this Sunday. Of course, if I can't breath through my nose by then, I'm scrapping it, which is going to throw me all kinds of off my schedule.

OK, I'll take my whining ass out of your comments now. xoxo
