Ugh...

Thursday, September 29, 2011

This week has been a crazy one.....open house for the little guy, an extra day of watching my niece, rain and today I woke up with a cold.

The good news is that we are all approved for our little Crunch dog to come live with us - as long as the home visit doesn't go wrong...but I don't see that happening - I have spent more time on the phone with the dog lady this week than I did talking to my OB about having kids....

It's something I have joked about a little with my hubby this week - but seriously.....each of my kids required a $10 copay and that was it. To adopt the dog....several hundred dollars.....a home visit, a cori check (to make sure we aren't animal abusers), a reference check@ the vet where we take our kitty and so many questions about life in our house.

It makes one wonder if maybe there should be some kind of parental screening process before we can have kids (I know - we can't stop the conception process - so it's not really possible, and if they did deem you unfit - then there would be so many horrible births and problems.....) - but in an ideal world unfit people would not have kids.....

OK - off the soap box.

Anyhow - crazy schedule and an extra day care day led me to the long run training to be today - but NO - I woke up to not only a head cold (I would have run with that) - but pouring rain - AGAIN. I think the weather is conspiring against me.

The good news is that tomorrow looks great, so after my 9:15 appointment - I have a date with a 10 mile run. I've got it all mapped out, and there are 2 convenient stores on the route, one at 5 miles, and the other at 7.5....so if I need water....I can get it......

I can't believe that my half is only 24 days away.

    Did you get your run in? Is your cold better?
    I'm going to do 10 miles tomorrow. Looking forward to it. I really need it.

    Can't wait to hear how the 10 miler goes today!!! And I agree completely about what you said in an ideal world. It's pretty amazing...

    Why not run in the rain? emoticon

    It really isn't that bad. I ran my 13 miler in the rain and wind. My friend and I were determined not to let the weather stop us. It slowed us down a bit but we wore rain resistant jackets so we kept fairly dry. The wind was the worst part of it.

    And I agree with your soapbox.... but that would be very hard to manage. Have fun with your new pup!

    I love the soapbox - go ahead and speak your mind, girl - you're right! Good luck with your run tomorrow - 10 miles... I can't begin to comprehend!

    Sorry about the cold - hope you're feeling better real soon.

    I know it is a hassle, but I am glad to hear about the screening you are going through. It is amazing how many abused animals (and kids) there are in the world. So sad.

    Hope that cold is washed away along with the rain!

    I've always thought the same thing about parenting vs puppy parenting. I had to sit through a class to adopt my Lucy from a puppy rescue.

    Have fun on your "date"!

    I agree with you about an ideal world.
    Hopefully your cold will be on it's way out with the rain so you get a good long run in tomorrow.
