Random Randomness

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!


  1. Haha, I have a 20-year old. her boyfriend drools over her, which is nausiating, but I'm glad we don't have the on again off again stuff. Trust me though, there's plenty of drama without that (just today she threw a fit because I made a dentist appt at 9:00am before her noon class....god forbid. I had to cancel it.).

    Enjoy sunny, warm Florida - I wish I were there! It's been nice here in Denver the past week and a half ... but it's WAY too soon for it to last.

    I am sitting here watching the tail end of the Biggest Loser too! :)

  2. Haha!I hope your boys don't have any greek genes, because judging from my own family, we still do the on-off thing way past that age ;-)Enjoy your time in Florida!

  3. I have a 9 year old who's going on 20.

    Safe travels! Enjoy some warmth for me!

  4. I have some thoughts on last night's BL, but don't want to step on any toes.
    I have an (almost) 5 yr old who does not like to have his nails clipped! I can't even bribe him with chicken to get him to sit still. I pretty much have to sit on him. LOL

    Enjoy FL!!!

  5. Good observations on BL. So true.

    Enjoy Florida--I just got back and the weather was perfect!

  6. Ya exactly!! If they can push that much harder at 200, 300, 400 pounds...then I can surely kick it up a bit!

  7. I really like your blog! It is so inspiring that you are going to greece. I am going to be visiting you for lots of inspiration. Thank you.
