MIA

So, my buddy, Lisa was asking me where we were - it seems we've dropped off the face of the earth. Well, my life has been nonstop lately with no time on the good ole' laptop in the evenings. This week, it's been running, painting the kids room at the Church, house work, and tonight Grace gets to decorate the tree. I'm usually on the laptop at night, or at the very least - work - but Work has been crazy busy as well. I haven't even done my bills, which I'm anal about - this goes to show, for sure that I haven't been on my laptop much.

Wed Run 3 miles
I was supposed to do 3 miles on Tuesday, but it just didn't work out. So, I did it yesterday, and really I didn't even feel like doing it then. I set out for 2, but got into it and said to myself "why not just do the 3". I started off with my normal pace and ended up doing negative splits. Not too bad considering the double digit winds and the small hills I had. I'll take it.

Today is supposed to be 6 miles, but I may move it to tomorrow. I like doing a run after work on Friday to celebrate the beginning of my weekend, even though this weekend won't be one for Me, as I have reserves. I also have my Virtual 8 on the 8th run, that Runner Nancy setup for us all. Unfortunately, this may have to be moved to Sunday - sorry folks. I can't fit in 8 miles at lunch, with how slow I run these days. I am going to try to fit it in though.

In other news, Grace had her portraits made this week and they are just adorable. Her birthday is Dec 31, so we had Birthday pictures done as well. Here is a link to them. My favorite....


I hope that this evening I can check in on your blogs. With that said, apologies about being MIA.

Sorry if I harassed you. ;>) I was missing my dose of Mendy and David. Who else understands my office obsession? Glad to hear you are just busy and don't have the flu or anything.

Isaac said "woo hoo (whistling sound)" at the pics of Grace. She is a doll.

Everybody seems to be a bit busy this time of year. Great pics of Grace. From the sheer number, I guess she liked having her picture taken ?!??!?

Gaawwddd Lisa is such a Mom. God forbid you go take a dump or something without her wondering where you are :P LOL JK!!!

This time of year is just nuts. Even I (the person who does nothing LOL) have been busy so I can only imagine how it is for you folks with lives and jobs LOL

Awwwwwhhhhh her B-day is the 31st? Gosh I can't imagine how stressful that has to be with just having Christmas and then having to worry about a B-day. And I gripe when Keira's B-day is in Jan LOL
