Saturday, Rainy Saturday

This weekend is rainy.  I thought it was supposed to get sunny and warm tomorrow, but I guess not.  What makes me happy about this is that the last three years I've run in the Colfax Marathon Relay, the weather has been gorgeous - sunny and hot - with not a cloud in the sky.  But as I am not running in it this year, I don't have to worry about the weather tomorrow.

As you might be able to tell, I am very bitter about the fact that I am not going to have any involvement in the race this year.  I'm mad at Jen for screwing me out of being able to do it.  I was really excited that I had something in my life that I was a part of every year.  And last year we did so well and I personally felt great because I didn't walk a whole lot.  But there isn't much I can do about it at this point.  Except I can still be bitter.

So, today, I slept in.  And spent a lot of time just lying in bed, watching TV.  Which was just fine with me.  I spent about an hour on the phone with one of the guys I've been emailing with and that was amazing.  He and I may never run out of things to talk about.  He's possibly equally as dorky as I am - maybe even more.

Anyway, that about sums up my day.  I went over to my parents house for dinner, which was minus the kids this week.  My sister worked this morning and took the kids back to their dad early and that was really nice for my parents.  My little sister was also still down so we actually had a fully-adult family dinner for the first time in who knows how long.  It was fun.  My mom and I watch a lot of the National Geographic and Discovery and History channels and got to talking about some of the shows we'd watched over the course of the week, and my older sister said that we were grossing her out by talking about the awesomeness of the human body (Taboo entertainers like glass-eaters and a guy who lifts things with his nipples; ancient and medieval torture devices, etc.) so she got up and left, but we continued our conversations.

I got home and threw my jammies back on and turned on the TV, texted with the new guy for awhile, then talked to him on facebook for awhile, then on the phone for awhile.  We're planning to finally meet tomorrow,  but have no firm plans in place.  Stay tuned for that.

And so it is bedtime.  Phoenix has been asleep for quite awhile, and I need to get enough sleep to be able to get me through the work week.  But I'm pretty excited and may have a little trouble sleeping tonight.  So we'll see!
