Friday Eve

My Road ID came in this week. If anyone wants to order one use this link & you'll get free shipping.
 Mine has my name, birth year, address, Dean's name & cell & my mom's name & cell. I still had a line left & a lot of people put funny little sayings. My friend Cindy's has "If you're not first, you're last". I went with "Never say never". It's kinda my mantra lately. I'm doing a lot of things I swore I'd never do - run, wear a swim cap, wear a helmet, etc.....

Cindy sent us the picture the other day. It's the view from the backyard of our next vacation spot!

We're going to Colorado! We leave June 21st. This was a spur of the moment thing. We just booked the flights Monday night.  Thank goodness for Southwest! Our friend Cindy has a friend whose parents have a condo in Winter Park & they're letting us use it. How awesome is that? There will be 6 of us. We're planning to hike, go white water rafting & to a Rockies game. I've never been to Colorado so I'm really looking forward to it.

I've been keeping up with the 30 day Challenge I'm doing & I ran Tuesday morning.
It was super hot & humid. 81 degrees at 5:00 am. I had to keep reminding myself of this while I ran.

Today I had an early meeting at work so I wasn't able to run. I'll do that in the morning. I need to swim when I get home. Rocketchix is quickly approaching.

It's that time of year again - we have to watch for snakes when we go outside. Dean took the trash out last night & he was gone forever. That would be because he spotted a snake. He attempted to kill it with no luck. I swear I think someone was punking us. Dean thought the snake took refuge in the rim of my truck. I had to get in on the passenger side & climb over to start the car hoping when I backed up he'd fall out. Of course not. There was poking, prodding & even driving around the block with no luck. Who knows where the stupid snake is.

At 12:30 this morning I woke up to the sound of a car horn blowing. You know like what happens when the panic button is pressed on your car remote? My first thought was that the snake fell out & somehow managed to make it go off. It was actually my neighbors truck. It just randomly went off. It's happened before but during the day. It's annoying when it happens in the middle of the day, you can imagine what it's like in the middle of the night when you're in a deep sleep!



  1. I've never been to Colorado, but it looks beautiful! Snakes!!! We have seen two this week on the road near our house. Ugh!

  2. You are going to love Colorado! It is truly a beautiful state. It will definitely be a nice break from LA weather. We have officially entered our "monsoon" season but nary a drop of rain so far -- well, it's only been a week (I'm so impatient). Yesterday was barely 100 degrees, but today is suppose to get to 108. Two weeks ago, our humidity was less than 5%, but now it has risen to the 30's. I'm so glad we have a trip planned for Oregon in July. We will be driving and plan to follow the coast highway from California and up to Newport in Oregon. I cannot wait!
