Ouch, ouch, ouch

That could be a reference to my really bad typing on my last post, but no.  Last week I decided to run 16 miles, in my brand new shoes and inserts, in the cold and rain.  Since then, my hip has been really bothering me, really, really bothering me.  So to make sure it didn't get any better, I ran 18 miles today.  I should have ran 13 today, but next week when I was supposed to run 18 I have a 10 mile race.  Anyway I had to switch things around.  This is the stuff you have to put up with when you decide to do crazy things like run a marathon at age 45.  I am excited to go to New York, but I am hoping now that I can make the at all.   I have 6 weeks to get it together. Training for a race, has a tendency to take the fun out of running.  There isn't the option of saying, "I don't feel like running today.

Another ouch.  Our house is back on the market.  The bank took to long to approve the loan and the buyers backed out.  Their realtor made sure we didn't get a cent of their earnst money, when she made us sign a new contract and her buyers never did, even though they asked for the extension.

Y camp was a lot of fun, in spite of the crappy weather, the piece of plywood I slept on and the nasty smell of ten year old girl's tennis shoes. Oh my Lord. I met a few really nice women and even learned a little about the environment.  I took 355 pictures for the 5th grade slide show and still not sure I got a one of everyone.  I  learned some new camp songs and spent some time talking to the teachers.  Our school is so lucky.  The teachers are awesome and they really care about our kids.

After having this mac book for 6 months, I finally figured out how to make it do the right click I love so much on my work PC.

I am trying to upgrade my imac to snow leopard and it is not going well, all because I wanted a track pad for a mouse, which requires snow leopard.  It keeps getting stuck in the same place every time.  It is making me cranky.  I did what I was supposed to do and it still won't work.  Of course, there is no support on a 4 year old computer.  Poop.  I might try using support for my laptop to see if I can get some help.

The Packer game starts in an hour.  GO PACK GO.  I can't believe I am cheering for the Lions, but I certainly would like to see Detroit have a couple of positive things this year. Only 2 minutes to go.   Go Tigers too.

Okay, that is a whole lot of nothing, but it's all I got.

I am in awe of your running. That is MAJOR. You go, girl! Here I am bragging on my 3 miles like it's a big deal!
GO PACK indeed! I was happy for Detroit, too.
