Just As Hate Knows Love's the Cure

Here is a table full of Hayden Fry's.

Okay. I'm done whining about finding a subletter...For now, anyway. I'm still working diligently on it, but I'm trying not to "soak in it" so to speak. I'm sure my attitude adjustment has a lot to do with me getting a nice 6 mile run in this evening. I've never taken any before, but endorphins have to be better than Prozac as a mood stabilizer. Ahhhhhh.

After we ate, Coadster and I went to put up a flyer or two and since we were on that side of town, we stopped at Menards to look for paint colors and counter tops and do something a little more positive in regards to buying our house. I found the perfect shades I wanted for my bedroom and the kitchen. I'm still working on the living room paint, but Coadster has a lot better idea for her room too.

Looking ahead to the weekend...The weather looks amazing. It's supposed to get up to 69 degrees on Saturday. Sweet! Tomorrow night, both of the girls will be at the high school play-off game. I have someone who is supposed to look at the place around 6'ish, so I'll wait unitl after that to run. Then I'll probably watch a movie and tackle cleaning, sorting and packing up our big walk-in closet.

On Saturday I'll have to get up before 6 again, since Coadster is volunteering and then racing in the Run for Relief benefit. This year the money is going to the Free Med Clinic. Stinky has to work, so she can't run, but she did donate some cash instead. Later in the afternoon, Coadster and some of her friends will meet to plan the first dance marathon at the high school to raise money for the Iowa Children's Hospital. I think they're also going to try and get kids from the Eastside grade schools to participate. It should be pretty cool.

Those darn Hawkeyes will be playing Northwestern on Saturday. The consensus seems to be that being on the cover of Sports Illustrated will jinx them and they will lose every game from here on out. Personally, I have total faith that they will actually play a WHOLE game this week and that will be awesome to finally see...But I've been known to be a sucker for false hope too.

I am definitely planning on running and hopefully biking this weekend. I have a lot of work to do at home, but there's no way in hell I'm going to let good weather in November go to waste. I'm pretty sure that's a sin that would send me straight to hell.

My Saturday night is up in the air. My friend G. has been sick all week and might not go out. There's also a rock show I might go to. It's a band that Mr. B. really likes, so there's a good chance he'll be there. I haven't spoken to him since June, but I am sooooooo over him, that I think it would be just fine to see him again. Who knows? Maybe we could actually even work on a friendship. Eh, it's not something I'm going to waste a lot of time or energy on either way. It will just be nice to see him and not care anymore. You know?

And now blog readers, it's your turn. Lay it on me. What are all of your exciting weekend plans. Will you be running for relief, or just relieved that you won't be running from an ex anymore?

Churlita,
Cute!
Anyway; we'll be putting the yard and garden away for the winter. Got snow last night. :(

At first I thought those guys were dressed up like the guys from "Super Fans" from SNL. I'm expecting them to all shout, "DA Bearss"

I will be cleaning out my closets and deciding what all isn't moving to my new house with me. I'm also going to probably go see "The Box" because I think it looks interesting. Fly is going to watch the WVU game so I have a completely boyfriend free Saturday so I'll have plenty of time on my hands.

Well... hopefully we will make it to the coast as planned. As of last night when we last spoke it was still on. Crossing my fingers.

Your weekend sounds fun too. I'd love to be dreaming about and planning how to do a new home. Fun stuff Churlita!

Hey, I dont know what the initials mean, but that first photo just cracked me up.

I'll be looking for endorphins without having to actually do the running.

Here's to a victory for subletting and the Hawkeyes.

I will be thinking good thoughts about responsible subletters and the Hawkeyes. Sounds like you have a good, full weekend :-)

I am planning to hang out with DR. And tonight Miss Personality is spending the night. Girlie Girl is in charge.

It's the 6th annual murder mystery at my house... this year it's pirate themed- port royal, Jamaica with governors and townsfolk and pirates and the all important wenches! YAY.
so 2 days of decor/ prep one day of food/ booze/ builds - all for 4 hours of party.
this yr. 35 people- and my video camera died a few months back. argh.
must beg borrow steal. I suspect Sunday will be much rest/ cure/ and re-making the house into suburbian normalcy.

must say, you make me want to try running again- or at least get a decent bike, so my knees would make it to 60.

I didn't do too much this weekend, but I did have a NaNo write-in on Saturday afternoon. I went to mom's for dinner on Sunday and hit 20,000 words Sunday night.
