You remember the movie The Negotiator? If not, you'll never guess who was one of the stars... I don't know anyone named Alan, so that didn't jar any last name combination. And for Hotter, I thought a bit later that a good one would have been Parry, but I guess since I baked some muffins on Thursday morning the oven was on my mind.
Guess what we did about a week ago?
We waited in line for 90 minutes to get some stuff squirted up our noses. Okay, it wasn't just any stuff, it was the H1N1 flu vaccine. The county we live in has been depleted of its regular flu vaccine and I don't know if it's that that caused a massive turnout or the pandemic that is the H1N1 flu but there were lots of people lined up for the vaccine. And it was free too, so you can't beat that.
The girls did okay in line. It's kind of ironic because we do everything we can to avoid long lines at Disneyland, and when we see a line that is 30-40 minutes or longer, we tend to just keep on walking. But we had no choice. Once at the end, though, we didn't get to go on a ride but rather got to have some syringe fun. Yvie didn't bat an eyelid when it was her turn but Kennedy went from calm to sobbing in about two seconds when she realized what was going on. I'd tried to explain it to her but maybe that wasn't soothing enough ("You can either get a shot or have a spray in your nose, and I don't think you want the shot"). Actually, I don't think the shot was an option for them, but they didn't know that.
So now we're all vaccinated and that's one less thing we have to worry about. The girls still have to get one more round of the vaccine but they'll be okay. And we won't have to wait in line for 90 minutes.
This weekend is going to be tricky. I have a 12-mile run scheduled for Sunday. The only problem is, I have something to do early Sunday so I can't go to the Loper meeting/run, which is disappointing. But that also means I have to do the run alone. That's not a big deal, really, but finding the time could be.
I will have plenty of time on Saturday morning, except I have a tripleheader of games to referee on Saturday, starting at 1:20 p.m. They are varsity games, which means I will have a partner, and that means I won't be the only ref out there and I could potentially get away with a little less running. Three varsity games is a lot less running than three JV games, and two of the games will be on a turf field so it'll be easier on my feet.
I could get up early on Sunday morning and get the run in, but then I'd be up against the clock and I might feel rushed. And if there's something I can't stand, is when I feel rushed. So that might be a horrible mental obstacle I throw myself. But that's probably my best option. I'll just get up at 5:30 like I usually do on Sundays except instead of getting in my car and driving to Loma Linda, I'll just get my stuff together and go on a run.
Oh yeah, and the best part is that it's supposed to rain all weekend.
LB's Song of the Week
Lately, all we've been listening to is Christmas music. We have songs in the stereo at our house, on my iPod which we plug into a radio for the girls and through our Sirius radio and CD player on our car. It's not exactly overload because I figure I get 12 months' worth of music in about a five-week span.
But when I stow the Christmas music away for another 11 months, we'll get back to enjoying our beloved songs once more.
Like this one. I was never a Lisa Loeb fan but she released a children's music CD and the songs I heard from it were really good. I've been meaning to buy it for Yvie because she likes them.
I don't think this song is on there, though. But we bought this song on iTunes and enjoy it.
