They Bullied Me!

...into a "new and improved" blogger. I couldn't do anything unless I accepted! The Brooklyn chick inside me wants to beat the crap out of them for not giving me a choice, but I will behave like the serene, mature woman I have become (vomit now) and take it in stride (damn mf'ers!). that off my chest......

I've been out of it as far as running goes the past week and a half. Not sure what was up...combination of the cleansing diet tiring me out, working overtime at new job, new hours to deal with....blah, blah, blah. Doesn't bother me much, I will be back tomorrow. Life sometimes throws ya curves and ya gotta deal with it. (still dreaming of my cabin in the woods with no stress).

I have been without my garmin for a few months now. Lost the base it sits in to recharge it, along with the cable. Lost the cable (rather, the dog my daughter rescued chewed it up) for my digital camera......then discovered the camera cable and the garmin cable were the same. I asked on the ultra list about a new charger and someone recommended a site that had it (garmin was out of it!), so I ordered it and received it Saturday! I'm back in business!!

Unfortunately, I can't post ya any new pics cuz, being the wonderful girlfriend I am, I encouraged Haight to go down to Key West with his pals this weekend (was supposed to be a wedding for one of them but that was cancelled--they still went down to party anyways!) and he, of course, took the camera. So you'll all have to be patient!

In the meantime, I've been catching up on reading.....the paperback for "The Year of Magical Thinking" by Joan Dideon just came out and I snatched it up. Already started it and am enthralled! Finished my easy read--I'm an addicted fan of Sue Grafton, the "alphabet mystery writer", her latest being "S is for Silence". I think I most love her protagonist, a female P.I. who I dream of being in one of my many fantasies.

I also cut my hair.....couldn't make it to the required 9 inches they want to have it donated. Cut off 6 inches---word in the salon was "adorable" old does one have to be before she becomes "sexy" not "cute"!!????? Guess in my next life!

So new haircut, nails manicured for work, next glasses!! Stay tuned!!

Just couldnt do it.....

tho i really tried!! Well, one full day and then a half. The cleansing diet---the lemonade diet, whichever you want to call it. Haight and I started it yesterday....bought all the supplies, the book (Barnes and Noble was out of it, as was Whole Foods!the lady at B&N said it's been flying off the shelves lately) which we finally found on amazon, and we were ready to go!!

I did real well the first day. Was surprised at how few hunger pains I felt. But the second day...oh boy!! I love to run but I don't love getting the runs!! The cramps...uck!! I called Haight to confess that I was through and I was on my way to buying lunch!

Guess what my first dinner was??? Pizza of course---I'm a true blue American!!
