2.5 mile fun run that ends with admission to the 4th annual Margarita Fest with a free drink coupon and a medal that acts as a bottle opener! Whoo hoo!

Did It Again!!





03:17:08

Not as fast as I' would have liked, but considering I broke my foot, tore my meniscus, and had the flu a week before race day, pretty respectable.

April?!?

Yeah yeah.... I have been totally MIA for another month! So much happening. So. Much. I'm heading down the home stretch for my half marathon. I have been running at a decent pace, doing my stretches and generally training when I can between work and family. Work has been haywire ever since the new girl quit. The boss asked her not to smoke at the houses any more because they're having a baby. Not an outlandish request, but she apparently went all postal about it and it's back to 3 of us. I  have been working a lot. Tons of shit to do in the Taj Mahal  that is a real shit hole. The builder used bad vendors, shoddy supplies, and flimsy building practices. That house is full of mold, leaks, rot, and bugs. It's only 2 years old. At least now I know why my allergies got whack nut when ever I work over there. Add to all that HHH starting a new job, Eldest finishing up her first year of college, and the end of Mo's court case and wow. 2016 is off to a heallacious start!

I'm also doing photography again. It calms me.

Good Lord!

Yeah yeah... I know. Haven't been here in forever. Sorry. A quick rundown of things...


  • Been working my ass off. Boss man and his lady found out they were expecting, so they asked the 2 girls that smoked to no longer smoke at the big estate house. It wasn't a cold turkey thing. They gave them till the baby's arrival 6 months from now to quit, and even offered help and support. The newest member of our crew apparently got all pissy about it and in a glorious, explosive failure, quit/was fired. I was disappointed because she was a passable worker. I don't understand why she didn't take this as a chance to improve herself. I would have.
  • Still training for the April Star Wars half marathon. I'm decent. My foot has healed from it's break nicely enough that now only my knee hurts. Going to the doctor next Wednesday to check that out.
  • We lost our case against the asshole who hit my daughter with a car. I am immensely disappointed, but I'm choosing to go with Evelyn's quote from "The Mummy"... 'You know, nasty little men, such as yourself, always get their comeuppance.' I'll bide my time.
  • Got a new camera. It came with a tablet because it uses wifi to transfer the photos I take with the camera onto the tablet for editing. Technology.... awesome stuff.
  • Speaking of the half marathon, I'm making my costume myself. I'm going with Princess Vespa from Spaceballs. It is currently driving me insane. This is all I got....  
  • And speaking of the race again, I conned my husband and son into running the 5K that weekend.
And now I'm tired.
