I'm sitting here watching these folks on The Biggest Loser and reflecting that, even though I think my workouts suck, that they would suck a lot more if I were three times my size. And if they can push that hard, I can push a little harder. That's what this show does to me - it strengthens my resolve to push myself.
I really am tired of winter. We're having a little warm spell here in East Tennessee, but I know there's going to be at least one more cold snap before winter gives up the ghost for the year, and I dread it.
My feet are in terrible shape. I want spring to come in the worst way, except for the whole sandals thing. Putting ugly feet in pretty sandals doesn't help the feet or the sandals. I have one toenail that may never grow back. I guess that's the price we pay, huh?
Speaking of toes, chihuahuas do not like having their nails clipped. But they do like being bribed with chicken to hold still while their nails are being clipped. It balances out.
There's too much drama involved in a relationship when you're 19 or 20. It wears me out, just trying to keep up! They're on again, and off again, and on again... and when they're on again they looooove each other so much that they never want to be apart. Until the next day, when they're off again. It's like a soap opera, right here, in my own house! This is what all of you out there with little ones have to look forward to. Just warning you!
I'm on my way to a faculty conference in Florida tomorrow. Luckily, I have grown boys at home (see above) to look after the house and the animals (and my car, but that's another story!). I probably won't be able to post again until Sunday. In the meantime, have a wonderful week, and if you're racing this week (Disney, anyone?), good luck!
