|Randee was in disbelief I showed up two days in a row. She came stumbling out the door with no shoes. I guess I should feel lucky she at least had on pants.|
|Um yeah. Perhaps I'll just go back to my hands on hip pose. This is a bit ridiculous.|
I'm just becoming Ms. Mary Freaking Poppins. Not much to whine about again today. My house is being cleaned as I type. My kids are all healthy again. I leave for Chicago in less than 48 hours. My marathon training is officially DONE! It's a great day to be me. Well, actually everyday is a great day to be me...but especially today!
This is pretty cool...
|I went to my first swim meet last night. See Lane 4?|
|That was our exchange student Alessandra in the 100 Yard Backstroke. She not only got 1st place, but also beat the high school's record set back in 1995. It was pretty exciting!|
And just so this blog does not come across as too happy sappy....
|I'll throw in a little Betty White (LOVE HER!). I'm pretty sure this is the best quote EVER! I so wanna be just like this at her age.|
|And this is VERY true.|
|I'm seriously thinking of having this one tattooed across my forehead.|
I've already told you I'm not drinking any wine today. It's sacrilegious to not drink wine on Whine and Wine Wednesday. I totally get that. However, I have freaking 26.2 miles to finish in a few days. I must HYDRATE. Also, I fully plan on having a couple of glasses of vino on Friday night in the windy city. And on Sunday evening....it's on!
Let me set the stage....
We have six people in a two bedroom suite. Five girls....and Doug. Doug is the only one not running the marathon. On Sunday night he has strict instructions to keep our wine glasses full! We have only one bathroom. He has also been told he must go to the lobby to poop. Only girl poop is allowed in the suite!
|Sounds reasonable don't you think?|
|Here's the forecast so far for Chicago. High of 74 on marathon Sunday. A bit warm, but not horrible.|
|Ms. Thang, Talia asked me to pick up this Texas bandanna for her yesterday. I'm not sure what she plans on doing with it. Perhaps this is all she is wearing for the race?|
Happy Whining and Wineing!
--Have a glass for me tonight, please! --
