Project 365... 2011: Week 13

Sunday - March 20 - Big Sunday!!! ... all those people standing up front?  They were getting ready to get baptized.  How cool is that?  Plus we have many families join our church.  It was a great way to kick off Spring - a time of "new life" ....


Monday - March 21 - Start of a new season... getting ready to kick off the season to live-blog "Dancing with the Stars".  I was debating doing it again this year, but I just knew I'd be sitting on my couch with all kinds of observations anyways, so might as well - right?


Tuesday - March 22 - Check the Specs... I went to get my eyes examined.  I can tell a difference since I'm creeping to the big 4-0 (lets not talk about that please) ... but I used to wear glasses growing up due to lazy eyes.  I can kinda see the "lazy" coming back too.  When I get tired, they REALLY turn in.  So yep, I had to order glasses. I was there by myself so I had to rely totally on the young lady helping me.  She basically picked out my frames... I hope they look OK - I dont even remember what they look like... this could be scary.


Wednesday - March 23 - Broken Down... I was getting ready to walk out the door to go run & I thought, I better call Ricky & check on him before.  He was having problems with his car.  Lo & behold - he JUST broke down.  (How's that for instinct?) .... but his car was totally STUCK.  You couldnt even get it in Neutral so it just sat & blocked an intersection.  This cop came up & was so jerky about it.  He said "You HAVE to move this car"... well, its not like we wanted to have it in the way.  He took the keys & headed over to "move it for us"... well, what do you know... he couldnt get it out of park & couldnt do anything about it either.  I wanted to say "BOO YAH"... but didnt think that'd be too smart.  He ended up sitting behind Ricky's car with the lights on because people kept pulling behind & not notcing the car was BROKE DOWN.  (people really arent observant)  Thanks mom & dad for the tow truck...every year for my birthday, they renew my AAA Membership & it always comes in handy.  Nice to have...


Thursday - March 24 - The FRUIT of labor :) ... It was Board Meeting week at work.  They always end up getting things to eat for the meeting, but there is always left overs.  We get to snack on it afterwards.  I love when we have all that fruit there.  Its so easy to just grab & eat.  Probably the only time of the month that I eat the healthiest.  There's always donuts & pastries too but I'm good at just munching on the fruit...


Friday - March 25 - Janis Joplin? ... I had been letting my hair dry naturally & Ricky kept telling me I looked like Janis Joplin... do you think it looks like Rock-n-Roll hair?  I just need some massive dark eyeliner & tease it up some more & a 80's rock band may be calling me!


Saturday - March 26 - Papa John's 10 Miler... I did it... I think I'll do a post on it later in the week.  But yep - I did it... next race up is in 5 weeks - the Kentucky Derby Mini Marathon. 13.1 miles... Bring it on baby!

Oh man - my car wouldn't go out of park either! VERY annoying. I'm glad it was fixable though...

Good for you for eating fruit & running! I know you didn't want to do the run, so I'm proud of you for getting out there.

Heidi said...

I can't believe that the police officer was such a jerk....like Ricky would really sit there in the middle of the intersection for fun!

Love seeing your pictures each week! I will blog again soon, I promise...it's been a LONG month and I don't want to be all woe is me...blah blah, so I've just stayed away for a while, but it's slowly getting better. I'll be back soon, I promise!

The Cyber Hermit said...

Argh! You make me miss being able to run so much! Congrats, too - that's a great accomplishment!

And 40 isn't bad (she says a couple years on). I'm just waiting until the day they tell me I need bifocals. I'll probably crawl under a rock on that one!

Lauren said...

Oh my gosh, so had to do a double take. That was Ricky in that rocker picture, haha!!!! :)

sara said...

I am very proud of you for restraining from the BOOYAH! but seriously, I think I might have said it! :)

you go girl! 10 miles!!!! I am impressed!

STILLMAGNOLIA said...

Congrats on the 10 miler...and yes...your hair does have a Janis Joplin look. Cars are so necessary...but such a pain.

RaD said...

Wow! 10 miles, I'd be huffing and puffing for sure. I guess that's why ya train for these thing eh?

That totally sucks about Ricky's car. I'm assuming he finally got it moved.

Mary said...

The ladies who work in glasses places usually do a good job; hope so for your sake!
It's no fun at all when your car breaks down, but to add a jerky police officer on top of it really stinks! What, did he think Ricky just decided to park his car in the middle of the intersection and see if someone would run into him?

Mimi said...

I asked a police officer for directions the other day & he was a jerk about it. Protect & serve, people!

Great job on your 10 miler! No spat this week?

Hugs & love,
Mimi

My car is broke down right now too. Broke down on me at MaMa Jean's (health food store), but my man came to my rescue and is currently working on it right.now.

Oh I am SO glad you are doing the DWTS live blog. I LOVE reading it.

Your glasses will look BEAUTIFUL!!!

I love your hair. Rock on sister!!

I thought about you so often yesterday, wondering if you did the 10 miler. So glad you were able to. How did your knee hold up? Did you KT tape it?

Have a Blessed day,
Dawn

Mark said...

I like you as Janis Joplin. You are one hardcore chick! m.

He & Me + 3 said...

Good for you running the 10 miler. AWESOME. That fruit salad looks so good too. I can't wait for summer to have so much of that. Never gets old. YUM
Had to laugh at the officer jerk comment. LOL Too funny.

rita said...

My glasses broke this weekend. Must go tomorrow and see what I find.
Waiting to see your new ones.
TEN miles Awesome!!! It's true then, life begins at 40!

bummer about the car breaking down and double bummer about the cop being a jerk :P But AWESOME job on your 10 mile run...that is so great. I think I need to get my eyes checked as it has been years, but I am afraid...

If you hadn't done the DWTS updates, I would have personally driven myself up to whereever in the world you lived and given you a What-For.

Thank your lucky stars you made the right decision.
