Blogging Whilst Drinking
I am at the computer with the bottle of wine. I truly apologize in advance for any rude, crude, and offensive comments I may have left on your blog. Wine really goes to my head and makes me quite "typeractive". I am not working, I am not editing photos, and I am not doing ANYTHING productive (except helping my heart by drinking red wine and watching COPS).
Anywhooooooo......now that you are warned.........
I signed up for Twin Cities Marathon. The full monte. 26.2 miles. The whole sha-bang. I did it yesterday while I was very sober. Today, I am in need of a paper bag because I am hyperventilating. What did I do? Sarge and I are doing it together but it hasn't quite sunk in yet. Based on my last few posts and my mental state during the last few weeks you must me thinking WTF??!! Well.....that is EXACTLY what I am thinking too. I have never been one for logic or common sense. October 4th 2009 I will complete my 3rd marathon.
I also found out today that I will be going full time at my "real" job. I was really conflicted about spending so much time at the office and doubling my workload. I really could use the extra dinero, however I am sad that I won't have the same quality time with the kiddos (who will duct tape them?????). Thankfully I work with some of the greatest people on Earth and they are being incredibility flexible with my schedule. I truly feel like I get the best of both worlds. The funny thing is, even though I am doubling my office hours, I am 200% sure that it will be less stressful and I will have much more QT with the chubby brats.
If that news wasn't good enough....I also went to the doctor today for a follow up. She checked my iron levels and laughed. I asked "are they normal?", she laughed again and her response was "Not even close". So now, after all these months I have a very minor surgery scheduled next month that should cure the the problem. *crossing fingers* I am really sick of being exhausted all the time. I am anxious to feel "normal" again. Best of all, it is such minor procedure that I should only be out a couple of days.
While I was on the table, nekkid in my paper gown, my doctor decided that this was the perfect time to discuss running. I learned that my doc is also a new runner and we are participating in some of the same events. 30 minutes later.....we were still yakking about different races we have done and would like to do. I guess I need to apologize to the woman waiting for the doc in the next room. Now I know why it takes so long to see her...she must runners as patients. Ha! If my doc can be a runner with her insane schedule, I can be a runner one with my crazy life.
It was a good day today. A very good day. I just hope tomorrow doesn't start with a headache after this wine!
