I hope you had a great birthday, Kerc, and a new year full of health & happiness.
Lemur and welcome!

Better to keep the goal very reasonable and hittable, or up the goal to something that will take work to shoot for but might not make?
Personally, I'd raise my goal if I was having awesome
results like that!

We had a Saeco for years that was great. It had to be refurbished once, and after that, we sent it to my dad who has also been using it for a couple of years since then. Now we have a Spidem, and it is basically the same thing as the Saeco, just a cheaper brand. I believe it cost around 600$ ... maybe you can find a refurbished one for less.

There is a 10K the week before the 25K in the same park.
Back to your regularly scheduled program...
Hmm, yeah, maybe the 10k in the park then your 15k on 2/28? Just to have more of a build-up ...
Arg, Eksmom, I'm so sorry to hear about all the night-time laundry emergencies! That's the pits. I hope she's feeling better soon. And DS, too. Sounds like you might be house-bound for a couple days, but I hope you have some quiet moments, too.
Memiles: Awesome !! I'm so jealous of all you guys finishing your taxes. I have got to get in gear and get to work on that.
La4 - sounds just like a sinus infection to me. I also feel the pain in my molars. Try hot compresses on your face, inhaling steam and a neti pot, if you can get anything up in there.
Otherwise, there's always abx...
Me, no FM today. I'm draggin', feeling the affects of AF on my psyche. Worried about my oldest DD's school situation, whether our choice to come to Germany was ... wrong. Not for us as a family - I think we are doing pretty well, all things considered - but so far, all I am getting is strange looks from the schools back in the states. On top of the homeschooling, what are they going to think about her very average grades from the school here? I can hear it now - What - only a C average? She doesn't belong in our school! She can't do AP classes... blah blah blah. I think it's time for me to just let the decisions happen, not get too involved, and then see how things go when we get there. Worrying about this is getting to be an obsession for me and I must.let.go.
