Onward Bound

Sometimes life is tough. Sometimes life is awesome. Sometimes it a little bit of both. Either way, you have to keep going. I'll be running, laughing, crying and sharing it all here.

    Snowy Saturday

    Well the great hunt for Christmas gifts is over. And we are all tucked in for a snowy Saturday afternoon here in Kansas. The Jayhawks have won and all is well.

    One lucky gal

    We went out for happy hour with friends last night and I was reminded for the 100,000,000th time at how funny and fun my husband is. He had the entire table laughing at his stories. It's so much fun to be around a person like that, and being married to him is even better!

    I told you this blog might become a random rambling....

    Hummer helps?

    Saw a commercial for this new ad campaign last night: http://www.hummer.com/hummerjsp/home.jsp?goto_page=/world/hummer_helps.swf&goto_nav=world. Essentially, they are claiming that owners of Hummers help people during times of national disaster. Ok, I can get behind the idea that the occasional Hummer has pulled a car or three out of flood waters, or maybe even packed a school room of children into its passenger area to drive them to safety. But, to claim that Hummers are helping the planet? I'm thinking that is pretty far from the truth.

    Disclaimer: Now that I'm blogging again, I haven't decided whether or not this is going to be solely about running. In fact, I'm leaning toward repurposing the entire blog to random ramblings by your's trulely. Not that anyone's reading anymore, but I'm just saying...

    Yesterday, Matt and I finally got around to watching Sicko, a documentary by Michael Moore. Now, I haven't completely decided if I'm always 100 percent on board with Mr. Moore's opinions, but this documentary was spot on! The interviews in Canada, London and Paris were beyond compelling. I mean if our government can provide public eduation, why not public health care? There was a gentleman from England who had been a member of Parliment. His point was if the government can fund a war, why can't it fund health care.

    I highly recommend this film.

    What do you say?

    So it's been over a year since my last post. I thought I'd sneak one in, in the off chance that anyone is reading. For the record, I'm still reading your blogs!

    So, yes, I'm still running. However, I've found it easier on weekdays to get up and use our elliptical machine since it's still dark when I get up and it gets dark by the time I get home. Does anyone have any thoughts about this problem for running safety?

    A lot has transpired over the course of the year. To summarize:
    • We got a new dog -- a puggle! Mack. So now we have Mack & Gertie.
    • I landed yet a new job. This one, I promise, will be the last. I'm happier than EVER and so glad to be out of an awful situation.
    • We moved again to a new house.
    • We went to Mexico again
    • Yours truly turned the big 3-0. Whew. But thanks to my wonderful husband who threw a fabulous surprise party for me, and my wonderful friends who helped me celebrate, it wasn't too painful.
    Overall, it's been a pretty good year. Check back again, I'm going to try to post more often now.
