Busy Weekend Forecast

Highlights of the Day:
1. running 3.75 miles in 36 minutes - new personal best!!!
2. hearing one of my classmates tell the oblivious girl talking loudly on her cell phone IN THE LIBRARY to "Call him back!" He did it really loudly. You just had to be there.
3. receiving candy from strangers - well, what really happened was the man in line ahead of me at the vending machine got 2 candy bars so he gave me one.

Lowlights of the day:
1. Kris had to go to Oxford for orientation for his new teaching class that starts this next week, leaving me home alone with Woodrow. Woodrow is looking for him and crying. It's pretty pitiful.

Thankful that:
I don't have a cavernous hemangioma on my face, also that I have the ability to walk and run.

Good deed of the day:
Giving my free candy bar to the classmate who told the girl to shut up.

Excited about:
Jen's bachelorette party tomorrow!!! Fun, fun, fun. We're having a slumber party at her house.
Gotta take a bath now!

Just Another Day

Highlights of the Day:
1. Getting on the scale this morning - I've lost 3 lbs. since school started!!!
2. seeing that other people are as freaked out about all the material we're supposed to know as I am.
3. watching Grey's Anatomy. I wish I had a photographic memory.

Lowlights of the Day:
1. having the sewing machine repeatedly mess up (due to an operator error I'm sure) and not being able to hem my pants during the commercial breaks as planned.

Our Daily Bread:
Kris and I had a gourmet meal of honey nut cheerios for dinner tonight. He followed his bowl with a 2nd bowl. I followed mine with a stick of string cheese - and then coffee. We're quite the food snobs.

Let's Simplify...

So, in an attempt to update my blog more regularly I'm going to try a new format. Instead of rambling on for paragraphs and paragraphs I'm going to start sticking to a few little tidbits. Here goes:

Highlights of the Day:
1. wearing my new orange sweater vest - and getting several compliments :)
2. running 3.25 miles (without a break!)
3. making a pretty decent supper - but I cheated...
4. watching Project Runway while preparing dinner

Lowlights of the Day:
1. leaving my iPod in my car during my run - it was a totally unproductive 3.25 miles. I should've been listening to a lecture.

Our Daily Bread:
Tonight we had some of Tami's leftover stew from our trip home this weekend. I contributed by making some cornbread to go with it. Granted it was from the package, but it was pretty darn good! Who knew?
