Friday Musings

Woe Is LB

I've been feeling run down all week. I was able to run nine miles on Sunday but that night I got a fever and I've been carrying a nagging headache/stuffy nose/sore throat all week. I feel so run down and haven't been able to run. I'm going to try and go today, going to head to the gym to see if I have it in me to run 20-30 minutes.

I really don't want to struggle through Sunday's 10-mile run, and I really don't want to miss it. If things go well today, then I think I'll be good for Sunday but we'll see.

I don't understand why I got sick. Well, I do I suppose as Yvie and Kennedy have been battling it as well, but I just don't know why this late in the summer they've come down with what they got.

Ragnar Costs Me Trip

I could have made another work-related jaunt to Central America. The same company I do work for that sent me to Costa Rica asked me if I was available to go to Honduras on Oct. 10. Sadly, I had to say no, I was not. I don't think it's put a damper on the Ragnar at all but it still would have been nice to have been able to go.

Disneyland On 09-09-09

We took the girls to Disneyland and California Adventure on Wednesday, Sept. 9, 2009, not to commemorate the 090909 date thing, but I guess that was an added bonus for no extra charge.

Anyway, just wanted to share some pictures.

Can you believe they already have Christmas stuff up? Okay, well, this is a half-truth. Yes, there are some festive decorations up, but it's for a commercial that will presumably air sometime this holiday season. I didn't realize that until well after I saw this wreath.

The girls and I on Dumbo. I used to think that ride was nothing, but I came close to feeling it on Thursday, and that would not have been a good feeling. Did I mention before that I have officially hit the wall?

That's Quincy of the Little Einsteins. Thought I'd do my best Quincy impersonation. Almost.

Kennedy's favorite form of transportation around the respective parks. It works but only for a while because she's getting heavy and I'm just getting old.

Kennedy and Cinderella. Mrs. LB took this picture and said that when they were two back of Cinderella, someone cut in line and Cinderella told them that since they cut they had to go to the back of the line. Ha! Can't pull a fast one on Cinderella.

I'm telling you, try the Pedialyte before bed and see how you feel in the morning. What could it hurt?

I love the Disneyland pics!

Aw. Thanks for sharing the family pics. My kids want to go to Disneyland so bad! They had to settle for King's Island last weekend. These pics would have caused a non-stop discussion--'How far is California???'

Good luck Sunday. I've been too distracted to stick to a goal, so give yourself lots of credit for that! I know it's really hard. You're doing great.

Great pictures! You and Quincy could be twins! :)

I love Cinderella, way to keep the cheaters in line! My favorite character that we met was Cruella deVil, because she got to be rude to people and they loved it; I thought, I want that job!!
