I got the race results from Active.com for my 5K this past weekend. I didnt do that bad really. In my age catagory 40-44 I was the oldest at 44 out of the 17 runners in the group. I placed 13th. =) I actually beat my goal of 15 minute mile with a personal best pace of 14:53. =) And out of a total of 257 participants I placed 184th. =) Overall I'm calling it a success.
Everyday I go home for lunch. I could bring my lunch but I miss my boys. Its a reason to see them! =) Today while I was there my dad was working on a project in my yard. He had to go into the pool area in his yard to get pavers and bring them over. He at one point thought I'd left and brought the dogs inside. He didnt close the gate to the pool. And THE DOGS WEREN'T INSIDE. Mainly REMI wasnt inside. Remi swims just to swim. Its the reason we had to put a fence around the pool area. Needless to say Remi spotted his chance to take a swim. I had to go back to work!!! Remi's new thing is to act like a 5 year old and refuse to get out of the pool. No really. Watch.
Sometimes promises of cookies work. Sometimes not.
He listens real well doesnt he. =/
Bubble Gum is usually a sure thing. Sometimes not.
I'm shopping for my bike, very soon. I said that with a smile. Could you tell??
Its time and more importantly my father and I were talking the other day about how I still want my own bike. STILL after all these years. I told him I'm gonna get one eventually. He said, "Why dont you get one now."
Time stood still, kinda. I felt like I was in the Matrix and everything was moving really slow.
I look left
Did anyone else hear him say that too???
WTF??? This is the man that has said multiple times over the years, "You can get a motorcycle over my dead body". Hmmmmmm, he's still alive I think. lol Ya know what??? I ain't sayin another word about it. Im just gonna go get one. =)
This might be the happiest day I've had in quite some time. I'm shopping!! I want to buy the bike with cash so it might take me 3 or 4 months to save the dough up. But saving I am!!! Today I took $100.00 bucks out of my checking and put it in my savings account. Not my savings account at the bank but my savings account in my secret spot in my closet. Believe it or not, its easier to save if I do that. When its in the bank I can spend it much easier. Finally!! I won't have to bug my buddies to borrow their bikes just to get my thrills and satisfy my need for speed. Ahhhhhh, the freedom!!
I think I'm going to get a used bike. A 2009 preferably. That way I'm not paying the rapist cycle shops top dollar for a new bike that they love to give to the top bidder. I'll save a bunch of money this way. And there are plenty of bikes out there that people buy and ride for a year and decide they want to upgrade. Its a plan!!!!
OMG! OMG! OMG!
Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy!!
Happy, Happy, Joy, Joy!!
The previous happyness is eclipsed by the following....The sailor is coming home for the weekend and should be here sometime Friday. We've planned a Memorial Day BBQ Blowout and are going to remember our hero's who gave all and hoist a beer in honor of them. Between Lauren and I, we invited 175 people and I think we will have well over 200 people by the time Ginger gets her people on the list. Facebook is an amazing tool for planning events, then getting the word out. Oh and we have live music too!!
A Girl Named Chuck is a good friend of the family. She loves Lauren to death and would do anything for her. So when Ginger asked her the other night if she wanted to do a little show at our place for the party, without hesitation she said yes. So cool!!
So thats it I guess. I gotta go now. I'm drooling over motorcycles on the web. =)
