Dashing through the snow

  New running mask! I’m a ninja! Read more… or Read more right here… » So I’m standing at the starting line, and I check my Garmin, which I haven’t used in a while – not since the last time I did an outdoors run, which was on Thanksgiving, and not for a good while …

Race in about four hours

I’m all jittery. I always get like this before a race, where part of me is excited and ready, and part wants to hide behind the sofa until it’s over. What’s up with that? It’s not like I’m a contender for a medal or anything; I’m middle-to-back of the pack! Something about all that starting …

101 in 1,001

Things in days, that is. Michael Green came up with the idea of setting 101 goals for oneself, with the intent of accomplishing them in 1,001 days. The man must like symmetry or something. Anyway, why not? Sort of a set of New Year’s Resolutions on crack. Read more… or Read more right here… » …

Another clue?

For the second time, I happened to start to get a dizzy spell (without bending or getting up or anything I could point to) while being near to Eric’s blood pressure cuff, so I slipped it on quickly. Like last time, my blood pressure was normal (this time it was 121/72), but my pulse was …

It’s snowing pretty hard, and they’re saying maybe five inches are on their way. I don’t particularly feel like trotting off to the gym in it. Yay, motivation. 🙄 I’m going, instead, to try out my new espresso maker this morning! Mmmmm, coffee. In other news, Gabe is well on his way to being fully …

Not-so-secret fear

Worst-case scenario: this is all dental-related. Frankly, I’d almost rather it was a “toomah.” I’m done with today. It can go now.

Head hurting again

I finally got an appointment with a new doctor. It’s hit me that I am having a ton of headaches lately, not all of which are horrible, but most of which are nagging and making me snappish at the least. Then there’s the dizziness, which hits not just when I go from sitting or squatting …

It’s starting already

I just realized that I’ve been dating January stuff with 2007 instead of 2008. My computer just assumes I know what I’m doing – now, why would it think that? – so it backdates it all, and everything disappears from sight into the depths of my calendars. Argh! New year hasn’t even started, and I’m …

Gone Again

Eric’s in Kentucky until Friday. Boy, does this wear on a family. Read more… or Read more right here… » GABE (despite our reassurances): “Daddy’s moving far, far away!” SAM: “Don’t even talk about Daddy! It makes me feel like I’m going to cry!” ME: “Where’s that egg nog?” Ahem. After this, he goes away …
