Interesting blog posts coming soon!

In one week, we will be in Australia! You can find us here:

(We're staying at the Crowne Plaza Royal Pines Golf Resort--once David's little ears perked up at the phrase "Golf Resort" there were no other options. He'll be on the course on Saturday, and I might ride in the cart with the camera and a knitting project)

(Our stomping grounds for 4-6 hours...but hopefully not too close to 6... on Sunday during the marathon) (If you want to check us out, I think you can listen to the live broadcast --although I don't think they're actually going to mention us ;) -- at or check there to make sure we're crossing each 5k mark. It will be between 2pm and 10pm Central time.)
and here:

(The Harbour Rocks Hotel will be our home away from home for the Sydney portion of our trip)
And I promise I'll post some of my own pictures & be a whole lot less boring once we come back here:

(Not our house...but you get the idea)

I'm bored!

School's out! I'd been counting down for about 175 days & it's finally over...and I'm bored! I've finished 1 400-and-something page book, started a 500-and-something page book and then realized I've already read it, put away clean clothes for 25 minutes (it was a big pile), gone to a softball game (that's where I finished the book...but I did manage to look up in time to see David's home run!), gone to the movies, cleaned up my living room, watered my plants, watched the ends of 4 movies that I fell asleep during the first time around, filed some of my school papers, watched Dr. Phil, started a knitting project, entered some pictures onto Ravelry, and taken 3 showers (in 4 days...that's not too bad!) What else is there for me to do?

Today I will go pay for car insurance (it seems that David has taken a page from my book... I tend to make him do everything because I can't just leave school, take a long lunch, etc. and he can usually be more flexible. Except for during June, July & August, so the car insurance payment has been delegated to me.) and after that I think I will stop at the library. I need something new to read while I wait for a book I ordered for ScrapVillage's new book club to arrive.

Here's my latest knitting project. A whole sweater in 2 days! ;) It's the size of a spool of thread!

Most Dedicated Runner(s)

In high school track & cross country, not a season went by that I didn't receive some kind of award at the sports banquet. In track, I was "Most Improved" and "Sportsmanship". The ones I treasure most were my cross country "Most Dedicated Runner" awards. My best friend on the team is a natural runner...there was no question that she'd be MVP every time. But, secretly, I believed that my award was really the most valuable award. Coach Hey picked *me* as Most Dedicated Runner. He had no idea.

Yesterday morning, we got up early to run and beat the sunshine. It's way too humid here, and once the sun breaks out, you've got no chance! When I say "early", you might be thinking 5 or 6. By 5:00 a.m., I had already run almost 10 miles. We woke up at 3 and left the house about 3:30. A lot of people run marathons, so I know a lot of people get out and run 18 miles. A lot of them are probably out starting their run or in the middle of their run by 7:30. But not us... we were finished by 7:30. Now that's dedication!

Oh...and I've been saying "we". I think it's time I share my Most Dedicated Runner title (for now) with David. He was up and running by 3:30 too. Although he's already decided that his first marathon will be his last!
