Foose Update

OOPS- I think I got it now! I am a cavewoman when it comes to computers.

First I was hoping to show you a ton of pictures but they are trapped on my memory card. Can a memory card crap out or is the computer slot crapped out?? I don't know all I know is I only have a crappy cell phone camera right now for blog posting. UGH!

Enough about crap ....Let's move on.

I took the night off Wednesday for my oldest daughter's art show and ice cream social which was even more fun because I volunteered for a few mornings to help set up. The work they all did was fantastic. The imagination and talent blew me away for elementary kids. My daughter had multiple pieces of her art on display and she was very proud of her work. We even got a garden flag with one of her paintings on it for our garden.(photo to come I hope)

Next-Got this mop cut and colored. Gone is the multiple color scheme-it was getting old. A friend at work said now I look like a Portuguese girl so I guess that is OK as I am partly a Portuguese girl.

I got my run in this morning a bit later than usual but it allowed for a decent breakfast first which I don't usually have time for. Slowly the time is improving and I am happy to see that. For 3 weeks now I have been running 2 miles Tuesday and Thursday. Sunday I bump it up to 2.5 miles. Every time I am able to shave of a 1/2 a minute I am happy. Some days are better than others but that's life I guess. I do have a bit of discomfort in my knees. I wouldn't call it pain yet but I know they are there and stairs are not my friend on running days. I may be headed for some ice after runs if this keeps up. I really don't want to change my running pattern as it is working for me. I also do not feel pain while running so I am hoping this is just my body adjusting to the exercise. No body we aren't quiting this week!

This Saturday my yard will be a-buzz with men(hopefully photos of them to follow too)! The friends will be showing up to hopefully get this deck on. If you didn't read before we have a deck but it is not attached. I have my fingers crossed and my fridge stocked with burgers and beer. There really isn't anything else I can do besides that and hope for the best.

Tomorrow may involve some bike riding or couch riding I haven't really decided which yet.

Off to fold some laundry.

Nice work on the art show!

I'm feeling your pain and need for ice. My left calf is still screaming at me, but it feels ok. Going to rest it today by working out, then working in the yard cutting down trees and burning brush. I should be in great shape for the 5k on Saturday...

Your hair is most excellent!

Does your camera also have a USB cable? We'll talk on Saturday.

Ice is good. And as long as you are not in pain prior to, or during running, you are on the right track!
