Thursday Thirteen, IV

Filed under: Uncategorized — by InterstellarLass @ 8:43 am

Thirteen things on my mind today:

1) Last night was my last run before The Big Day. Thirty minutes easy jog. It felt good.

2) I still have three loads of laundry to fold, plus another one to wash and fold. It never ends!

3) I should get the final draft of my divorce papers either today or tomorrow. If all the changes are in there and I sign them, I think I could be divorced within the next two weeks. Yay!

4) I felt like dressing up in a suit today. I look all business like and professional. he he

5) I’m starving! I need to go get a scone. Hopefully they have cranberry today.

6) I’m going to miss Elle’s soccer game this weekend. 😦 But, it’s the only one on the schedule that’s at 8 am. I’m kinda glad I don’t have to take her. Evil, I know.

7) I’m ready for hurricane season to be over! Wilma! I can’t believe they’ve run out of names. You know they go to the Greek alphabet next?

8) I’ve been getting ‘good-lucks’ and ‘have funs’ and ‘you’ll do greats’ all morning. There are just too damn many people to thank for getting me to this point! I have so many friends that have been so inspirational and supportive. Gosh ya’ll, I might actually cry! *sniff, sniff*

9) I have officially signed up for the Rockledge Rumble 30K. That’s just three weeks away! Yay!

10) After Sunday, I get to do two things I haven’t been able to do since July! Ride my bike and run on dirt trails! Woo hoo! I can’t believe I’ve actually been able to avoid those temptations.

11) Forgive me, but the only other thing on my mind is my marathon!

12) See, still thinking about it. Hey! Who wants a mile? 1 & 18 are taken, but there are 24 other miles to be had! Leave your name in my comments. First come, first serve! Special requests will be accomodated to the best of my ability!

13) I know you’re all excited for Sunday to come and go so I can actually talk about something else! Shut up already! 😀 HA HA!

  1. Hey girl. Just wanted to wish you much endurance in your race on Sunday. I’m taking a break from the TT this week. Kind of brain-dead, y’know.
    Have a good day.

  2. What exactly does “wants a mile” entail?

  3. You just gotta claim it! I thought about people bidding for miles and then donating the money to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, but I didn’t have time to set up the online donation site and all.

  4. I’ll take one mile. I’ve started running. (did you just fall down in shock?) But I can only do one…

    Great list and good luck honey!!! Woo-hoo!!

  6. Hey, I did the 13 Thursday for the first time today. The template header was too big and messed up my page though…so I had to take it off. I know what you mean about Wilma. If we have a hurricane with a Z name, I’m gonna feel like the world is ending.

    Hi from Michele’s today.

  8. “2) I still have three loads of laundry to fold, plus another one to wash and fold. It never ends!” You just fold the clothes – WITHOUT IRONING?

  11. 13 is a lot… but they do say that 14 is the number of positive thoughts to erase a bad one…

  12. wow, you’re doing a marathon. we just had one in our city last weekend, but i’m not a marathoner (if that’s even a word?). good luck with it, hope the weather cooperates for you.

  15. No one’s claimed mile 26 yet? I want it! I want 26, baby! Make that 26.2!

    I won’t wish you “good luck”, because we both know it’s not luck. “Break a leg”? OH, forget I said that! Just go get ’em!

  20. Good luck on your marathon! Maybe by this time next year I’ll be running one of my own.

    Thanks for stopping by earlier; oddly, you’re my only Thirteen visitor today.

  21. Hey, thumbs up to missing the early morning soccer game…my husband coaches hockey and I get an automatic out for all 6 a.m. practices. No guilt allowed. But you do know that she’s going to score a few times and make the play of the game, right? :).

    Good luck to you this weekend…such an inspiration to a ‘i used to run and now i just don’t make the time’ girl.

    Comment by jenny — October 20, 2005 @ 9:12 pm |Reply

  22. I will take a mile if I can crawl the second half of it:) Thank you for stopping by

    Comment by FattyPants — October 20, 2005 @ 11:40 pm |Reply

  23. here comes another… GOOD LUCK! Just think you’re running after or with James Bond in the marathon-that’s one way to get you through and hopefully there will be a martini at the end of it for you 😉 but maybe water will be all you’ll fancy 😉

    Comment by The Wisdom of Wislon — October 21, 2005 @ 4:10 am |Reply

  24. I’ll take mile 4, that’s ususally my best one. Good luck!!!

  25. Hi!

  26. Good luck in the marathon! It sounds like you’re well prepared. I hope you have a great time.

    Comment by Jessica — October 21, 2005 @ 9:34 am |Reply

  27. I’ll take mile 22.
    BTW, what does that mean? No matter, I will be sending positive thoughts your way.

    Comment by UziCue — October 21, 2005 @ 10:04 am |Reply

  28. Hey! Have a great run, I’ll take one of your miles if you have any left!
