Back to the grind

A few of the shots from our trip: From left to right: somebody cloned Gabe at Bay Beach Amusement Park, me and the kids at the zoo, one of the creepier train car exhibits at the Railroad Museum, playing in the hotel water park, and running on the course of the Green Bay Marathon. More …

Green Bay, day 4

As Eric put it today, the vacation is mostly a success, except for whenever we eat. 🙄 Seriously, every time we try to hit a restaurant, everything goes to pot, with the whining and the complaining and the refusing to eat foods they ordinarily love and the fighting over crayons…ugh. Today, we tried to eat …

Green Bay, day 3

The run today was such fun, exploring the Fox River Trail! It was marked, thankfully, so not having my Garmin wasn’t an issue; I went seven miles, according to the painted pavement, but I was so distracted during the run that it felt like nothing. The path followed the Fox River (duh), along behind some …

Green Bay, Day 2

To summarize: started fair enough, hit a high point in the afternoon, then deteriorated quickly over dinner, leaving us with feelings of exhaustion and frustration. Filling in the details, we did breakfast here at the hotel, which was great for everybody else but underwhelming for me. Seriously, no bagels? Not even a packet of instant …

Green Bay, Day 1

Firstly, I live. 😉 The dental extraction this morning basically went as follows: 1) They put a mask on my nose, blowing oxygen and nitrous. 2) They put a needle in my arm. 3) I woke up with gauze in my mouth and feeling a little sore. Eric took me home, where I slept off …

I should add

As a very last-minute thing, is there anything in Green Bay that is absolutely a can’t-miss, taking into account that our family as yet has not, er, sipped from a certain football team’s KoolAid pitcher? 😉 (Sam was the only one who might have had an interest in seeing the field, but his reaction to …

Facepalm

Read this?. Lovely. I really liked my old Sigg, and maybe (well, probably) I’m being a paranoid freak, but I can’t bring myself to use it and its old BPA-containing liner anymore. In my search for a replacement, I have several things that are important to me. I want it to be stainless steel. Yeah, …

Those little bedeviled details

Why is it the little things that drive us so crazy? My running is going fine; my training plan is working really well for me, and I feel pretty good. But now, of all things, my Garmin seems to be dying. First it was the speaker, which gradually became taciturn. At first, I thought it …

I feel funny.

My stomach is kind of flip-floppy, and my throat is a little goopy (sorry), and the whole world smells sort of yellow. (Do you ever get that? Where the best way to describe a non-visual sensation somehow works out to be via a color?) I don’t want to be sick! But I’ve been feeling like …
