Lord Jesus, there’s a fire!


I’ve really done it now.

Signed up for my first 5k.

Finally got the word from on high (work spouse’s actual spouse) that we have been approved for the 5k on April 20th in Huntley.

And now I’m scared.

Scary is good, right?

I’ve told work spouse it’s his job to call the ambulance.  And you know what he’s doing instead?  Insisting that I join him and other work peeps on the Ragnar Relay.  Because apparently I’m a runner now.  A really chubby slow runner.

But a runner.

Tonight we golf!  I wonder if it’s lesbian and Asian night at the Top Golf in Wooddale like it is every night at the Buffalo Grove Golf Dome?

Happy clean the garage day!


What are your family traditions for clean the garage day?  Mine are filled with groans and bitching, until I succumb to the realization that someone needs to do it, and that someone is me.

Actually, cleaning the garage only took an hour.  We are now ready for the cold weather (the final prep prior to having the car in the garage for the winter will take probably 10 minutes).  After that I made a fabulous lunch (a stir fry with baby bok choy, green peppers, green onions, mushrooms, and an Ideal Protein chicken patty) and showered.

Next it was off to Dick’s Sporting Goods where I bough a visor and a new golf glove.  Checked out golf shoes, but didn’t want to spend $79 on a pair of shoes today.  I want to prove to myself I’ll really go out and play.

Then I went to the Buffalo Grove Golf Course and spent some time at the driving range.  After a few decent shots, and plenty of poopy shots and swear words, I went for a bike ride in my neighborhood.  Am I the only one that hates intersections, getting off the bike, and then restarting?  I feel so uncoordinated with that.  At least I went out, and enjoyed myself too.

I topped off the day by cooking dinner and watching some Northwestern football.  So far it’s been a pretty boring game.  I need to study, but I’m just not feeling it tonight.

Tomorrow I’m going to walk at the Botanic Gardens with my good friend Kim, out to lunch, and then some errands (Petsmart & Sam’s).  After that I will study.

Over and out, stalkers.  Over and out.
