Weekend Update

Monday already?  How does this keep happening every week?  Oh, la vie, right?

This weekend wasn't too exciting.  Can you feel the winter trend, here?  I hate the cold and I loathe the snow, so I tend to hibernate more in the winter.

Friday was interesting.  Gomez got his first round of allergy shots, and he was none too pleased about it.  He's a real trooper, and after the first round, we will give it to him at home instead of the vet.  Well, Joel will.  I will do nothing that involves needles.  *shudder*  I really hope this helps G-Dog, though.  I feel so bad about his itchiness and redness.

We rested up for our race on Saturday morning.  It was pretty fun!  It was a "Winter Luau," and we tried to dress the part as much as we could in the frigid temps.  Joel got fourth in his age group, and I was just happy to finish.  There were a ton of hills, and my thighs were not happy with me.  I didn't place, but I wasn't last, which is always a bonus.  I'm going to start tracking my times to see my progress.  Now that I am trying to run more during the week, there has to be an improvement, right?

Sunday wasn't the greatest day.  I had been battling a migraine all weekend, and it came to a head on Sunday.  I had breakfast with a friend, but that's pretty much all I had the energy for.  Also, I found out my Uncle passed away unexpectedly.  He was young, only 47, and had a severe heart attack that his body couldn't recover from.  Depending on when the service is, we might be headed to Indy to be with family.  If you could say an extra prayer for my step-dad (who I've always known as "dad"), I would really appreciate it.  He's taking it pretty hard.

So sorry to hear about your Uncle, and so young. I'll be sending up some prayers now.
