Yes, I am alive

Guess what I am doing right now?

Besides typing?

I am sitting at Susan's computer with someone special in my lap. Not Kelsey. Not MAC. Not E. Enough said.

I am 1 week and 1 day without wisdom teeth. I had assumed that losing the teeth would mean that I would lose weight. That should mean that my running should improve. WRONG.

I have recovered nicely. The surgeon was pleased with my 1 week follow up and released me to do anything I want to do. He had told me nothing strenuous until the follow up visit so I behaved. I was worried about gaining weight but after several day of applesauce and soup, I didn't need to worry about weight gain. I had them taken out on Thursday morning and Susan was a trooper and stayed with me Thursday and Friday to make sure I didn't bleed to death or try driving while on pain meds. By Saturday, I was pretty much back to normal and by Sunday, I was off pain meds altogether except for an occasional visit to the Tylenol bottle.

I ran two miles Thursday afternoon at Susan's house. She joined me for a light run and we spent most of it "girl talking". Just stuff. I ran two miles this afternoon at Susan's house. She didn't join me tonight. Too busy doing Sudoku and drinking wine. Oh yeah . . . . and she had her two girls and two of their friends. BLAH BLAH BLAH. Excuses not to run.

We were supposed to do soccer tonight but we had a great storm blow through. We needed the rain so I am not going to complain. Besides, MAC is having fun playing with her friend. Both E and MAC are having their friends stay over to spend the night and it is fun listening to laughing in the other room.

We also bought a fort/treehouse/swingset for the girls last night at Sams. My parents love Sams. I'm sort of indifferent . . . I always spend money when I go there. Anyway . . . Susan and I unloaded 4 boxes weighing about 250 each last night while the girls were with their dad. The instructions say it should take TWO semi-skilled men 24-28 hours to build this thing. I figure I am SKILLED since I have helped my dad build houses and have built my own. I also figure if I leave out every other bolt I can probably build it in about 12 hours. Of course, if I have a six pack while building it, I could probably get it done in 6 hours!

I still owe you guys and girls a questionairre. I promise it is coming. Don't you love being teased?

Have a SUPER weekend!

Sure you're alive and why not, make the best of it. Life is like a box of chocolates and you have the whole box in your hands. Enjoy.
Kinda took that from someone else.
