poppy, my half is just a couple of weeks before yours, and I'm only up to 6 (7 this weekend). I'm doing the hal higdon beginner program
. It's really low-key and easy to play with, which is why I picked it. I was sick a couple of weeks ago and got pretty much wiped out for a week, but have been able to get caught up. You can do it!!!

at DJ Jazzy Jeff...how can he be any good w/out the fresh prince???
I'm really intrigued by the treasure map thing. God knows there's enough things in my life I need to work on.
Re: the economy...I'm kind of worried, just because of my situation. It's looking like I'm going to have 3 years of full spousal support, with possibly partial support for another year. The amount is enough that I should be able to live comfortably with just cutting out some of the luxuries that I indulge in way too much. I'm worried about AFTER that. I just can't go back to my former career. The hours are not conducive to being a single mom, and the pay was terrible (but it was a "fun" career). I would probably *barely* be able to support myself, but not DS, and I would have to downsize our home significantly (and we're only in a 2 br condo). So, I have to figure out what I can do that will make me a decent amount of money, whether it's somewhere in healthcare or something else entirely (which would make me feel like crap that I have a master's degree that would be wasted). Ugh.
STBX took DS last night and today so I could ski today. It was a really nice day (sunny and 40) and I got some good skiing in until the last run. I don't know WTF I was doing, but I somehow caught an edge and took a rather spectacular fall. Thank god I was wearing my helmet, or my brains would be seriously scrambled right now. Well, more than normal.
As it is, I think I possibly have a *very* mild concussion. Started out just a little lightheaded and dizzy, but now I have a pretty decent headache going. I would like someone to explain to me why it is that I can ski blacks, bumps, etc., but I always bite it the hardest on a groomed blue cruiser.
I had it all planned out that I was going to take tomorrow as my day off and do my long run on Sunday, but now the weather report has changed and instead of being beautiful on Sunday, it's supposed to be beautiful (sunny and 70) tomorrow, and snowy/rainy on Sunday. Bleh. I guess we'll see how I feel tomorrow and if I feel decent, I might go ahead and do the run tomorrow so I don't have to freeze.
