Well, i don't have an ipad. (whaaah whaaahhhhh) In the end it was determined that while i could suffice with an ipad, i would get annoyed with certain aspects, and i am such a grouch to begin with, the poor apple store guy thought it was a bad idea. So, my darling Macbook pro is in the shop getting it's screen replaced. It's kind of a gamble with a five year old laptop, but if i can get just one more year out of it, i will be happy. I just don't have the money to blow right now with the upcoming trip!
So what have i been up to other than being the worlds worst blogger?
1. Cleaning! The apartment is pretty impressive these days. It turns out i have a lot of extra time when i don't spend an hour before work parked on the couch blogging every day.
2. Hanging out with this jerk.
We started puppy classes again after putting them on hiatus when she had all her surgery complications. Turns out, she forgot everything we taught her, and somehow learned how to be even more bad. She actually was used by the instructor as a demo dog on how to do everything wrong. My shame was unfathomable. And, as we were leaving - carrying her out of petsmart because she was being SO bad, a woman walks up to her, gets in her face and says "a basenji! she is so stressed out, i can see it in her eyes!" No lady, I'M stressed out.
3. I ran with these awesome ladies (and awesome dude)
I'm definitely suffering from lack of motivation during high mileage weeks, and being around other people makes a world of difference. I am also painfully aware of how unprepared i am for the Chicago Half Marathon. It makes me sad. Miracles can happen, right??
4. And lastly, some of this happened.
Seriously, farmer John, you amaze me. One of those carrots is as big as my forearm. In a drought, no less. I commend you.
