Oy! I'm tired. Getting ready for vacation is exhausting! I also worked 6 hours yesterday helping BBW organize their crawlspace storage area (read: stooped over the whole day moving heavy props around and up and down a ladder. It was tough, but the area where all the props or stored is beautious and organized! It's like everything that decluttering and organizing my kids' closet isn't because it will STAY that way!
Mommajb - I'm so glad you are moved! Good luck getting settled in. I'm very impressed with the running that has been going on in the face of moving!
Sparkle - I'm not sure how I'm getting to S.Rim. We are coming from Moab, Utah, so presumably taking 191 south to 160 west.
Jenlove - I can't believe you are already entering the third trimester! Sending Mortgage approval vibes so you can get moved settled, and your ducks happy before the baby Love comes!!! We are doing a big 2 week camping/road trip extravaganza! We are heading West to Colorado, camping for a few days in the Grand Junction area (Mesa is the nearest town to our campground), then on to Moab, a hotel, hot shower, and Arches National Park for a day. Then, on to the Grand Canyon for a few more days of camping and exploring. Then, on to Durango, Colorado for 2 nights. After that, we are heading East again to stay a couple of nights in Kansas City with a good friend and hopefully see DrJen!
Geo and Sparkle - The combination of Shakespeare and running is fantastic! Well done, ladies! Well done!
Waxing - I have thought about waxing. Rejected it because of pain and expense. But, here's my question (in case I ever get over it), how much hair do you have to have before you can wax? I, generally shave (at this point), and am not crazy about growing out completely! So, how much hair does there need to be for waxing to make sense? Also, on the feminist perspective of things, I went for about 15 years without shaving. For the most part, it was quite lovely. I don't actually have totally unnoticeable leg hair (it's lightish, but definitely people knew I didn't shave if I wore shorts). DH didn't care one way or the other, and I never got any comments on it. I don't think I ever got one. Maybe they were all talking behind my back, but I don't really think so. I actually got more comments from people when I started shaving again! They wanted to know why. I started shaving a few years ago when my hair was just bothering me when I wore long pants. Now, I really enjoy the smooth, silky feeling of just shaving. I started shaving my bikini area (I still have plenty of...roughage) when I started tri training and I was swimming so much! I felt a little silly having naked legs, and then this stuff sticking out between my legs! Anyway, I plan on approaching the subject like I do makeup (something I only occasionally wear when getting all dressed up and fancy). It's something that some women do to make themselves feel put together, finished and fancy. It is by no means necessary to be beautiful, feminine or a woman. It is a choice of fashion, not a dictate of beauty.
RR: We are going out for a HOT bike ride this evening with the tri class. It's supposed to be an "endurance ride with a time trial in the middle". I'm not sure what that means, but I'm excited to unleash the power of the road bike!!!! You may not have heard it, but there should have been background music of angels singing when you read that!
In the meantime, I am packing, cooking, cleaning! OMG, I'm leaving tomorrow!!!
