What a messed up day it was yesterday!  Walked into my classroom literally 10 minutes before I had to teach, got set up AND used the bathroom, ha ha!  I felt ragged and rushed all day, and of course my principal showed up to do a walkthrough with of all classes, KINDERGARTEN!!  Thankfully we were doing a movement activity that the kids like....  Spent most of my lunch on the phone to Mini Roadside Assistance trying to find out if a tow truck was going to arrive at 4 pm to get my car, was told they only schedule service 2 hours out and I should get a phone call around 2:00 which of course did not happen... spent another 15 minutes on the phone immediately after school to find out that my work order had disappeared and I had to totally redo my tow request.  FINALLY got a tow truck scheduled, and lucked out that Ron was at home to drive me over to meet it, so dropped my stuff inside the front door, drove Kati's car to her work and jumped in with Ron and the car was put on the tow truck and on it's way to Mini by 5 p.m. last night.  Now to wait until lunchtime to see when it will be ready, hopefully today because tomorrow poses another set of issues to get down there to pick it up...

So I stayed at home last night and Kati is going to pick me up so I can drop her off at her job and I will once again get to school 10 minutes before teaching time.  One grade level will be on a Field Trip so I'll have a nice LONG lunch today, woot!  So I'm thinking of putting out all my holiday/snow singing books for my first 2 grade levels this morning, easy peasy.

Tomorrow is my 4 month dermatology skin check appointment and I get to talk my derm doc into letting me go on Humira for my eyes.  I'll be sure to show her the zombie eye pic for extra effect.... hopefully we can come to a mutual decision on all this crap.... ultimately it's MY decision, but of course I would like her blessing....

I had every intention of getting up for a 5 miler this morning, but since I slept like crap the night before with the baby waking up crying from a bad dream every couple of hours, I opted for sleep.  Maybe tomorrow....



Just talked to the dealership, car will be fixed and ready for pick up this afternoon!!  Yea!!  Some other deal with the fuel system, but should be fixed for good this time, sure HOPE so!!  What a pain in the arse!

We'll my plan was to run this morning, but my damn car broke down yesterday in the grocery store parking lot AGAIN!! And it won't get towed until about 4:00 today since the Mini roadside assistance couldn't find anyone to come tow it to the dealership yesterday. So once again I am having to use my daughters car which means dropping her and the boys where they need to be and she will get to work early and I'll get toy job late. Looks to be the same deal for tomorrow and I can only hope it will get fixed and I can pick it up tomorrow. Same damn problem that was just fixed 2 weeks ago!!!!!!!'
No formal workout but tons of carrying boxes up and down the stairs to begin the Christmas decorating. Made a big dent, still have to decorate the big tree and finish the inside stuff and then get the outside done.

Very chilly Turkey Trot! 3rd AG, not sure how many in my AG, but there were about 700 people out there!! About half of them were walkers with kids, strollers, and dogs, but they had us line up as competitors, recreational runners and then the walkers. I ran the whole thing except a very quick stop at the last water station for a couple sips of water. For the amount of running I've been doing I was pretty pleased with this run. My first mile was 9:47, didn't think I had it in me to go under a 10 minute mile, ha ha! Slowed it down by mile 3, but picked it up the last quarter mile into the finish... I got a bit chilly because they waited for EVERYONE to come in before starting the awards and of course the old people were last... and even though it was super chilly at the start, by the time I left, the sun and lack of wind felt pretty good. Twas nice to finish off 2013 with some bling!

3rd/15 AG, 298/680 overall.
