She Counts the Hours Until

Wowsers, this week has been the busiest I've been at work in a long time. Almost driving me to tears at one point or two. I really don't see the end of it for about 2 more weeks. I have one more full week in the office - then 2 back to back trips where I'll be gone for 3 darn weeks.

With all this craziness, I still managed to get my morning runs in - yeah me.

I'm pretty excited about this weekend. Tonight we (OMG I just said "WE") are supposed to go on a double date with some friends. The cool thing is that I have been friends with this couple for EVAH and they were sort of influential in the set up with Loadmaster - as he is friends with them too. We're trying to push for dinner and a movie - whoo hoo wild times. There's a new fancy theater by the Loadmaster that has a BAR in it - HELLO!

Tomorrow morning I'm hittin' the pavement for an 18 miler. yippy. (note to self - eat)

Then a quick shower and I'm driving up to see my sissy and nieces. The oldest is turning 4. She told me over the phone that she wants a Hannah Montana Barbie. Where the heck do they learn things like that? She also wants clothes (takes after me) but not shorts because she has too many of those already. Also anything with Ariel, Cinderella or Hello Kitty is much appreciated. I'm so excited to get some quality time with them. When I see them at family functions, they are too overwhelmed to really hang with. But when I go for weekend visits, I get them ALL to myself. muuuahhhhhh

Now I just need to get through 8 more hours of crazy time hell and then it's ON.

18 miles! I know how did we get up in mileage so fast?

Sounds like a great weekend. We just got one of the new fancy movie theaters with the bar and big reclining chairs ... it's awesome.

I hope your house is stocked with breakfast items! Good luck w/ the 18 tomorrow. I'm doing 14 Sunday, so I'm apparently way behind you :)

My favorite theater is down the street from my place and it serves pizza & beer. It's the only one I go to.

Hi, I'm running a half-marathon the last weekend in September, and have had to have 2 weeks off training cos of surgery :(. Do you know of anywhere I make my own bespoke training programme for the time I have left? It's my very first one eeeeek!

Thanks so much for your blog btw, it is v inspirational! I stumbled on it by searching for running and yoga, and am hooked!

Regards from England!

I like like like this new guy. I love sharing food at restaurants. It's cozy.

Sharing is cozy and fun. Sounds like things are going well at work. Oh, I have a question. What was he name of the DMC we used in Ireland for Crest Steel?
