That Tall Girl


A New Note

Just thought that I would check in and let you all know what’s new in my life.

On tuesday night I went over to the gym and met gym oy’s replacements… they were quite the dissappointment. The boy was too young. The girl was a girl and a jerk. After checking in I went back to the “cycling studio” to wait for my spin class that I thought would start at 5. When 5:10 came I went to look at the schedule, the gym cancelled that class! What losers. From there I had to go run on the track (because the machines were busy). I ran for 20 minutes until that (cute) guy told me it was funny how threw my right elbow out every so often. After that I decided to try a step class.

Wow, I will never do that again. Ever again. I got lost with the stepping on and off of the step. After about 15 minutes of torture (because I have no coordination whatsoever) I told the instructuctor I just couldn’t handle it and left.

If you’re interested I went to a spin class at 5:30 wednesday morning before we go on the road. Apparently my middle sister also woke up at 5. She couldn’t stop complaining how she was so sleepy… I just would like to say: Suck it up, Sister! Not only did I wake up 5 minutes earlier than her but I went and cycled for 45 minutes (at an intense rate)

Having worked up an appetite I went to Panera to grab a blueberry bagel (my new fav!) Then I went to Wally World and found several running tops there on clearance for $3. I had already raided the one at school (stuff was $1 there, like a super cute running skort!) Then we got on the road after killing way too much time.

I haven’t been up to much since then. I started reading Twilight by Stephanie Meyer yesturday and I’m almost finished. It’s not particularly my favorite book out there. It’s only so-so. But it’s an easy read and I’d like to know what everyone else is talking about. I probably could finish it tomorrow (in the down time when everyone is getting ready for our feast, we’re having it on black friday this year!) but I kinda want something to read on my 9 hour drive home…

Well, I’m pretty sure that I got an A+ on my Chemistry test. That’s one less thing to worry about, along with having practice out of the way. It was especially fun today! Does that mean easy? Nah… just super fun and different.

Wanna know what else is super fun? Listening to Christmas music whilst packing/cleaning for Thanksgiving break. I will be getting on the road at approx. 11:30 a.m. (in about 2 hours!!) The trip will be much nicer and faster since my friend M. is tagging along.

The rats will be going with the roomie, home, since I am traveling to the windy city to see family for a couple of days. My parents weren’t too keen on the idea of having a rat in the car for an 8 hour road trip. They think it might make things smelly. You know what my answer to that is? Dad. Gas. Eww. Besides, we’re cleaning the cage right now.

It’s my turn to hold the rats, I put them in my newly emptied trash can… hey, it works. They are so cute. They made a fort with the newspaper in their cage:

It’ll be tough to leave Bootsie for about a week, but I might be able to manage. You know what’s going to be difficult? Leaving my teammates. I’m going to miss them 😦 But it’s probably going to be worse over Christmas break: a whole month without my best buddies!

Well, gotta go finish up the packing. Gotta make my list and check it twice. Pick out something nice.



Happy Fathers Day!

Today was pretty low key, except it wasn’t. After we got home from church and ate lunch Dad opened his gifts. I got him a cool wire basket for flipping fish on the grill:

Later Dad took me to Costco and to Best Buy where I got a new iPod and Nike+iPod to track my training progress on my new program to get ready to run a 5K- eventually I want to do a triathlon.

And since I haven’t posted a picture of my new laptop:

Oh and we got Dad a new toupee (it’s blue, so it doesn’t really match his hair, oh well)
