Lazy Bones

I haven't posted at all because I haven't worked out at ALL. Not one bit since Friday last week! Holy Cow. I guess I will pretend I am taking seriously the rule of thumb about taking one day off for each mile run in a race. So by Sunday I better get back to it!

Big Huge Deal at work this week. It is over now. I am so tired. I am taking a vacation the week of November 5 - and doing NOTHING.

I waited (and didn't take a vacation) all summer for this Big Huge Deal at work because it was due sometime in July or August. But didn't happen until the end of October. That is OK. It is over now.

I have spent any money that might have been used for a vacation on
1. new garage door
2. new lighting fixtures in my house
3. 4 new tires on my car - that is painful money to spend!

So I will spend a week contemplating and knitting and whatever the heck else I feel like doing!

new tires for the car are the worst because they always cost more than you expect them to. hope you enjoy your last few non-running days - then you have a vacation to look forward to...

I am right there with you. I was just contemplating a post called "missing the wind in my sails".

I haven't done anything either. Yesterday morning, I even had cake for breakfast. It's a slippery slope...and I'm headed downhill fast!!

Sounds like money well spent and a great planned vacation :-)

Enjoy the rest now Mary, and the vacation the week of the 5th.

I didn't get to Denver last night until after dark, stayed at a Hampton Inn in Golden, just off of Colfax. I wasn't sure of the neighborhood so I elected to not run.

I'll be back the week to Colorado the week of the 5th and will specifically be in Denver from the 6-8. I fly out the afternoon of the 8th. I'll be staying downtown at the Hampton Inn.

That sounds like an awesome vacation. I am solooking forward to the break at the end of this semester -- 3 weeks -- partially because we're not going anywhere!

Sounds like the time away has done you the world of good. You sound and look so cheery!
