Yesterday, today, tomorrow, and then some

Yesterday - Despite how upset I was from my appointment from voc rehab, and then not having a couple necessities for a run at the gym last night, I did enjoy my evening and was asleep before 9pm. Ahhhhh....such goody goodness.

Today - Seriously, the kids were crazy insane today! I was telling our ED teacher that there is a full moon coming up or a storm en route. Sure enough... we are currently under a winter storm warning for the next 24+ hours. Possibly 3-4 inches of white fluffy stuff. I went to spin and it was my first in two weeks. Today was also the last night our spin instructor was teaching. I guess taking night classes to work towards her masters was more important! Can't wait to hear when she subs for other instructors on saturdays/sundays! Good luck to her! Tonight... I am off to watch the great KG and the Celtics.. ... because the T-wolves are sucking it up... big time.

Tomorrow - Early morning meeting that I am NOT looking forward to. Then, dinner after school with a couple friends, a basketball game, and then home to bed early. I am staying away from the gym to finish fighting off this cold. I will use my free time to mentally prepare myself for my 7-miler on saturday morning....as I will need it to make up for the lack in physical preparedness. I am still "planning" on doing the "8 miles on the 8th" dealio. Hmmm. Fun times for sure on the thrillmill... as I am sure it will be below freezing and then some with windchill that morning. If you think you have ran in cold weather, try fighting the Great Wind of the Red River Valley in ND.... purely discusting.

then some - I am really not feelin' this tri-training-stuff. I am going to keep doing what I am doing and see how things go. I just think an outdoor triathlon in the summer sounds much more enjoyable and worthwhile. Good news... a girl friend of mine is supposed to be coming to visit this saturday! I can't wait to see her! .....plus.... A friend of mine (from grad school who now lives in MT), called last night and he gave me the dates for a few of us to roadtrip out there for our ski trip this winter! I can't wait. I am looking forward to using part of my week and 1/2 vacation from school to do the slopes in beautiful MT! Don't worry... you know me... there will be lots of pics!

I like that picture and I can't wait to see more later this winter!

And teacherwoman, if you can run 8 miles on the treadmill, you are a better woman than me. I could not do that. I am deathly bored and 4 and can't seem to run any further than that...

I hope you shake your cold asap... drink lots of water!

The only place I love skiing better than CO, is MT! But, sadly, I haven't been skiing or snowboarding in about 4 years. So sad.

The bike is ALOT more fun outside. I HATE riding the trainer. Sometimes it's a necessary evil but I would much rather be outside.

I have been water skiing but never snow! Maybe one of these days I can try it. Sounds like fun!

The snow pictures are great. I hope the kids settled down for you. I know the feeling on those days when they all seem to be amped up on something. Good luck on those 7 miles.

Yep, kids and old people act crazy before a big weather event! They both poop a lot too.

I truly thought I commented the other day when I read this - guess not.

Great picture! I love it, but gosh - it's cold your way!
