Mom and Dad's New Puppy

Tuesday, April 14, 2009


I've decided to run a 5k this year, and a half marathon either next year or in 2011. I've been heading to the gym with Pat 3 times a week, but this week we're changing it up and I'm going every weekday except Friday when I'll be in San Diego with my family.

Went to work out again today! I did a mile in 17:40, including 5 minutes of warm up and in total went 2.02 miles in 38 minutes. GO ME!

I am now really sore and VERY hungry. Gonna go find food.

Faith, Trust & Pixie Dust

I downloaded Kerry Butler's album (legally people! I paid for it.) from Amazon the other day. Mostly for this song, titled, Disneyland. I think it sums it up perfectly.

Hot Sunday night
I guess the folks were busy fighting
Joe'd already left home
Eleven years old on my own
Feelin' nothing but lonely

There's nothing to do
There's nothing out there but the traffic
Down on state ninety-three
So I'd sit through the night
By our old black and white t.v
And that's when I saw it...
That's when I heard it...

Magic kingdom
Close my eyes real tight
Wishing hard I might, wishin hard I may
Find my way to Disneyland
Gotta get to Disneyland
On a western breeze, magic carpet please
Carry me away

Oh I know you're gonna say the trees are paper mache
It's done with mirrors, the magic there
Each little bird's full of springs, you press a button it sings
Recorded music in the air
They've had the mountain refaced, it's only plywood and paste
Go on say it!
I'll turn around and tell you I don't care

I will live in Disneyland
Magic Kingdom
Where the child inside
Gets to laugh and gets to ride
Until it's all okay

I believe in Disneyland
Come with me to Disneyland
And when we get to Disneyland
Let's stay

I believe in Disneyland
Come with me to Disneyland
And when we get to Disneyland
Let's stay

Happy Extra Saturday!

Today is a busy day! I was up at 6:30 starting laundry and sweeping/mopping. Only have one more room to sweep/mop and then I get to clean my bathroom, dust, get my toes all pretty-fied with Tawnia, shop for Easter stuff for the crew, go grocery shopping with Pat...what a day!

Meanwhile Pat has a huge list he made for stuff in the house he needs to get done. Yesterday he fixed our back screen door so we won't have bugs flying in the house, but can leave it open for a breeze (swamp cooler assisted) during the summer. He won't be able to do the rest of his list...the winds!!!

Yesterday the Ridgecrest winds were crazy, and today is no different. Currently the wind is at 28 MPH, with gusts of 45. Doesn't sound to bad....right? Go for a drive at 28 MPH and stick your head out the window. It sucks.

Tonight, the entire crew is getting together for a very much needed party/BBQ/night of fun. Damn do we need it!!!!!

2 weeks is San Diego! SO excited! I know there's lots of people who want to get together with me while I'm there, but other than my family, I'm only seeing one gal, so ya'll can just live. I so rarely see my family, I just don't have time to part with them. Sorry!!

Have a good weekend all!
