But I'm Really Not as Cool as I'd Like to Be

Coadster took this photo looking out at Ground Zero with her phone and texted it to me today.

So, last Friday night, Stinky and I had all these plans to watch movies. The reality was that we were both so exhausted, she fell asleep by 8 and I fell asleep at 9:30. Paaaaarrr-teeee!

This week should be a little different story. I'm taking a vacation day on Friday. Yea me. The girls have their Spring Break right now, so we'll have our first day off together during the week that isn't a holiday since August. We talked a little about riding the new bike trails around town, but we'll have to see how the girls feel. Coadster is still in NYC, and I have a feeling she'll need to sleep for a couple of days straight to recover. Stinky is sick and has a bad sore throat. She may go to the Dr. to make sure it isn't strep tomorrow. If the bike riding thing isn't feasible, we also have some canvasses and paints, so we could stay home and make some cool art. Either way, I won't have to get up early and it will be way more fun than sitting in my cubicle all day. Cheers to my four day work week.

Tomorrow it's supposed to get up into the 70's. The weather has been perfect the last few days. I've been running like a fiend lately. Finally.

Okay, I'm boring and tired tonight, so I think I'll shut-up and go to sleep now.

Oh, and Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Happy St. Patty's Day! Hope you find green beer (if you're looking for it).

We will be having our annual St. Patty's Day menu: green pancakes & green eggs for breakfast, green mac&cheese, green beans, and green applesauce for lunch. We eat normal food for supper because we're sick of green by then.

I bet your daughter is having a blast in NYC!

Enjoy your day with warm thoughts of running and St. patty's day...

Happy St. Patrick's Day to you too!

I am loving the weather right now. Makes it so much nicer to go out, even just to run errands.

I have a few vacation days coming up to at the end of March. Can't freakin wait.

I'd love to be outside if only it'd stop raining!

I hope Stinky feels better soon.

And I'm glad to hear the weather is better...real winter sounds exhausting to me :-)

Go Green!

In the 70's? Man, you're lucky. I can't recall the last time we were anywhere near the 70's. It has been an unusually long winter in Seattle.

I went to Ground Zero a couple months after the attacks and will never ever forget the the awful smell. I wish I could though.

Anyways, Happy St. Patty's Day to you and your family!

Happy St. Pat's and vacation! I hope your Stinky is well soon. My youngest is down with the flu crud... hope it's not what she has. He has been down for several days and would be a shame for Stinky to be sick for her spring break.
I envy your weather too. Have fun!

She did have a blast in NYC. I'm sure I'll steal some of her pics and post them on here too.


Back at you. In general I'm a happy person every day. I'm not really celebrating it this year much.


I did enjoy the warm running, but I wasn't so full of warm thoughts for some reason.


You have a lot to look forward. I hope it's nice out on your days off.


I hope it stops soon and you get some of this wonderful sunshine.


It can be exhausting. Stinky went to the Dr and tested negative for strep. She said the doctor told her she had swollen lymphnotes though. I love the idea of swollen notes, as opposed to nodes.


Thanks for the St patrick's day wishes. i hope you get some warmth soon.


Stinky's grounded anyway, so maybe being sick will keep her from being too restless.

I am enjoying a three day work week thanks to sickness taking over Monday and Tuesday. Not the St. pat's I am used to!
