Memorial Day is almost here... it's the day for the resting

You may be wondering what that means... it is a poem Alex wrote when we were doing 7th grade poetry anthologies.  Yes, that was the whole poem.  Not a haiku or anything, just that.  The thing was... it stuck!  Ha ha.  Suckers.

Anyway, today was Memorial day and day 3 that Maggie and I haven't run.  We'll start that back up tomorrow.  Today instead of a run, we went to dog beach for the first time.  Maggie LOVED it.  She wasn't too keen on actually getting in the water, but loved the freedom to roam.  She is such a great dog.  We also do at least a 20 minute run every day now, and try to walk 3-4 times a week.  This gives me time to listen to Dave Ramsey's podcasts and get my PT in too.

Today is also my anniversary.  Abbey and I didn't do anything this year because it was Memorial Day and are saving to have an all expenses paid trip to Hawaii for our 10th.  Should be achievable if we do it right and save!

The mice on the bed

Sam brought us some mice this morning.  It was disgusting, but it makes me think... Sam probably thought she was doing a good thing.  Don't get me wrong in any way, shape, or form,  I appreciate her catching mice... but when Abs and I freak out... does she get upset?

It was, after-all, a gift for the family.  So does she get mad?

I have the weirdest thoughts sometimes.

Ride your bike to work day!

Yes it is... and yes I did!

It's been a long time since I've ridden my bike to work, but I used to ride quite a bit last year.  Now, with teaching and my job riding has been more of a challenge.  Just based on time there are times I could have but didn't, and times I work BIG hours and I'm glad I didn't.  Anyway, it's a great thing to do if you ever get the chance.

Reuniting with old *friends*...

Facebook has good things and bad things already.  First off, I've been blessed to know some VERY cool people and be friends with a number of them.  So to that extent, it's been GREAT to catch up with the two that have written several times now.  One of my very close (and lost) friends was there and she and I have emailed a few times now.  Very cool.

My complaints.  First of all, it's not well set up.  There is TONS of ABSOLUTE CRAP on there.  You can get lost if you are a *newbie* like myself.  Secondly, it's beginning to get similar to "my space"... and to that I want to explain why the friends in the title of this post has asterisks around it.  There are about 30 people on my friends list that I haven't spoken with in 10+ years.  And even when we verified that we were friends, I still didn't write them.  Heck... there are people that I speak with every day that I verified were friends of mine that I wouldn't write on facebook even when I leave San Diego.  I guess I don't like being a big friend whore.

Yes... I did it.  I got a facebook account.  I think it's re-donk, but I've found a few people that I hadn't "heard" from in YEARS.  So I may continue with it.  Alex and I definately keep up and that's good.

I'm going to sign up for the Big Sur Half Marathon in November.  I'm pretty excited about it.  I'll let you know how the training goes.
