new race's the latest "do".....only wish I could fix it up the way they do in the salon!!

Haight and I are off to Florida tomorrow for a week in the sun. We'll be visiting his folks in Sarasota and running the Sarasota Half Marathon. Actually, since neither of us is really ready for the race, we'll just walk most of it....I'm sticking with Haight to make sure he gets through it!

Work changed my hours to an hour later....YAY!!! Now I can wake up at 4:30 instead of 3:30....a normal hour for me! Running has been challenging for me...was still getting used to the new work schedule....and I think since I finally got back at me and kept me exhausted all the way through it!

I've also had a new puppy in the condo. My daughter decided to help a friend out and watch his 8 month old puppy this past month....and she is quite the naughty little thing. She shall be caged while we're gone as I just know my daughter will be totally overwhelmed dealing with her this upcoming week.
But...the biggest news??? I sold my house!! Glory Hallelujah!! One little mortgage, one wonderful condo!! Now to sit back and finally start to enjoy life a bit more!!

Lora, You look just like one of the Nurses that took care of me last me last week. Are you sure you did'nt pull a shift at UCSF?

Good News about the house!

Everybody hated February, it was so cold and such bad weather in most places that it was chalked up to a "rest month" Good luck and enjoy the 1/2 and congrats on selling the house, what a relief!
