Count me in for loving April. This time of year makes me truly believe we have survived another winter.
Jen, hope the house sells fast! Showing a house = not fun! Have a good weekend :)
Nic - my all time favorite kid oriented hors d'oeve is a big jar of mini kosher dill pickles. I pour the pickles into a bowl and watch the kids descend like sharks in a feeding frenzy!!!!
JenLove LOL thanks for explaining yogabootyballet. I have always been like "Huh, what IS that all about????" I hope V's knee is all better soon!
JayGee, that firepit sounds awesome. I saw a ton of amazing backyard fire pits on my run today and was seriously envious!
Plady, love reading your posts, you are a thoughtful, wonderful person. Love you!
Jo you and I are bag sisters. That's all I will say LOL Have a great escape for a couple hours!!!!
Kerc, yay for yarn! Was it good stuff? I never find good yarn for a good deal. No surprise I guess. What knitting projects do you have in the works?
I did my dreaded 17 miler this morning and felt good. So glad I beat that mental hurdle!! It was a beautiful day and I did an out and back route I have never done before. I usually try to avoid out and backs, but for some reason, it was really comforting to me today to have a turnaround, and to know I have less to go than I already went. I listened to a few "This American Life" podcasts, which was totally entertaining. I had some muscle discomfort in the last couple miles, but not horrible fatigue, so I think I am doing OK in my training.
I focused on the scientifics of recovery when I got home - took in some good carbs right away, and drank some coconut water with it. Felt good. Also delighted to report that I had no UNDERWEAR Malfunctions on this run!!!!! Praise all that is good and right!!!!!!! I am going to sit on my (non chafed) butt the rest of the weekend. Thought about that the whole run LOL
NRR Mr. Dingo and I are invited to an adults only, 1950's themed cocktail party tonight, complete with a pianist on a baby grand piano. Period attire is strongly recommended. This has been stressing me out all week, since I have no 1950s cocktail attire, nor do I have the time to find some 1950s cocktail attire, nor do I have the cash to get some 1950s cocktail attire. I have a hard enough time putting together a nice outfit fit for 2011. Garrrrrr. I just decided to wear a nice dress and my favorite badass heels and F it if it isn't 1950s enough. Plus, I'm doing a 30 day fitness shred where it isn't recommended to drink alcohol so so much for the champagne cocktails. Mr Dingo wants to go out for drinks and dinner first and I'm like, well I have to be boring....poor guy. Oh well, at least I will look good in my non-period appropriate dress, right ladies? I wish I had a Rizzo outfit and I could take my bad attitude and hit the party in character. I need to get over the stress! I am never having a party with a stressful dress code, no way sisters!
Have a great weekend Dingoes!!!! ND
