What a week.
Actually, quite awful But at least it is over. The week anyway. I hate that I'm wishing so much of my life away. And the thing is, my future is so uncertain, it's not like I'm looking forward to great things so I don't know why I'm so eager to get on with it. Anyway. Today is a brand new day. Google Reader basically exploded; I had hundreds of unread posts. So sorry, y'all, I marked all as read. If anything really extraordinary happened to you - I missed it. I'm sorry. I just had to. There was no way I was ever going to catch up.
I did get to head to the vet not once, but twice last week. Everyone is okay. We just had a nasty case of tapeworm among a few of the furry residents. Ew and ew. Good thing they are so cute. (the cats, not the worms) All better now.
Softball season started up. We won our first game. No thanks to me. But at least I matched. Yes, those are pink sparkle laces in my pink and back cleats. What did you expect?
Saturday I was excited to meet up with Kim as she travelled to Dallas to race the Rock and Roll Half. I even went to the Expo - that's how much I like her. Expo actually wasn't nearly as stressful since I wasn't racing. I tried drinkable yogurt, eh, and some honey milk, double eh. I did run into Ally so that was awesome! I just love that spunky little girl!
It was a beautiful day in Dallas and we celebrated by having lunch on the patio at a local restaurant. It got up to 87 (30.5 C)!!! Sunny and gorgeous. I really enjoyed spending the day with a sweet friend.
Later, recovered from his unwelcome visitor, Hank helped me make signs. I had great plans to spectate RnRDallas with friends. Note: cats aren't nearly as helpful at sign making as they like to think.
Our plan was to dress up like super heroes. As you can see, Lucy outdid us all! Isn't she just precious?!?! She was a BIG HIT at the race. I love her attitude!
Here we all are. Sadly, Boy Mom was sick and couldn't make it. Boy Mom, we missed you and hope you are feeling better! We still had a pretty big crew if you count the kiddos. There are actually two small children in the wagon. Kara has twin boys and they were all bundled up under the quilt. A cold front came in last night and while yesterday it was hot and sunny, today the high was 48 (8.8C)! I'm so glad it wasn't warm and humid for the runners. Great racing weather. Side note, is that not the cutest little dinosaur?
Kim spotted us just after mile 2. Doesn't she look great? Yes, I'm wearing a pink satin cape. I'm Pink Girl, who else?
Run, run, as fast as you can - loved the gingerbread woman. Saw her several times on the course. Very cute costume idea!
This guy stopped at had his picture made with us each time he saw us on the course. Finally I insisted that I get one too! I mean, really, any guy that can rock a green tutu is cool in my book! Dallas readers, anyone recognize the green tutu man??? Do you know him? Green tutu man, who ARE you? Later in the race we got to see him cross the finish line with his kids. Too adorable - and they were wearing capes!
Lookee who I spotted just before mile 8? She had been running uphill since mile 2. And still going strong!
And of course, a few of the Longhorn band members were at the Cottonbowl to bring in the runners at mile 13. I dance myself silly while I waited for Kim. You know I love a good band and it doesn't get any better than this! Hook 'em!
