It is 6:07am on Sunday. Dad and I are supposed to leave the house in 38 minutes to get down to the starting line. It is about 34 degrees outside. The wind is blowing up to 30 miles an hour. It is raining to our right and snowing to our left.....very very hard....Oh, and I've had a sore throat for 4 days.
Needless to say, we've thrown in the towel. The weather has won, it has beaten us down and ridiculed us. Who's idea was it anyway to try and do a 1/2 marathon in November? Oh yeah, that was mine........silly silly girl.
In my embarrassment of missing the event, I did just sign up for the Diva Dash next weekend (www.divadash.com). Hopefully the snow has stopped by then...if not, I'm doing it anyway. This is angering me!
The cats are ready to have the house back to themselves. They can't figure out why all these people have been around their house for 4 days straight. Last night they were both upset because the humans were taking up all the chairs and they had to *gasp* sit on the floor to watch TV with us. They both are currently sitting in the bathtub waiting for someone to come and turn the water on for them.....oh...and they'd love it if Mr. House would get up and put wet foods in their bowl.....but it is way too early for that.
So yesterday we went to Bainbridge Island to visit Nancy. Her house is just as amazing as I remember. She's been sick with Distonia for a few years so it is pretty grown over, but she's doing better now and has big plans for the spring. I do believe she talked Chris and I into coming over to help.....She took us to the Bainbridge Island winery for some wine tasting (and buying of course) and then to the Clearwater Casino for a buffet lunch. My stomach is still recovering, but it was fun to visit with her. She's just as sharp and funny as ever.......Sure glad we went.
