For those who look at my blog but don't see anything new

I was talking to my mom today and she was telling me I needed to update it because she comes to check on it and there IS NOTHING NEW. Hi mom. :)

Aaron is out visiting for a couple of weeks. Our futon/guest bed is set up in the front room which is connected to the room where the computer is, and since he's a teenager and they go to bed at like, 5 a.m., I don't get on the computer as much as normal so I don't wake him up. Once they're up, I have to keep them entertained, so I let them sleep.

Not much is new around here anyway. Now that dance is over, things are pretty mellow. I spend my days watching squirrels and birds, playing on the computer (when we don't have company), doing sudoku, shopping or going to lunch with Anisa, and sometimes with Renee and Ava, doing laundry and cleaning the house. Pretty boring. I haven't done much sewing lately because Sara took her desk back...I was using it in my sewing room as an extra storage and flat surface. Now, the room is messy and I don't like to go in there. I'm on a mission to find a good, cheap dresser or desk. I looked at Ikea, but they didn't have anything that thrilled me. I liked their dressers, but they were a couple hundred bucks and I'd have to buy new drawer bottoms cuz the bottoms in there are REALLY cheap and flimsy and I wouldn't want my fabric to fall out and get all messed up since it's nicely folded right now.

Tomorrow, Travis and I are heading down to Quantico Marine Corps base to run a 10k (it's part of the Marine Corps Marathon and if you do this 10K, you are guaranteed a spot in the marathon in the fall. We'll decide if we can do the full marathon after we do the Historic Half in May). It should be fun. We usually run about 6ish miles, so it's a normal distance for us, but we'll do it with thousands of other people. I have personal space issues, so I hope I don't freak out on anyone for getting in my "personal space". Actually, I'd probably only freak out on Travis because he's already been warned SEVERAL times. The base is about 45 minutes south of here, so we have to get up early if we want to have some coffee and a little power breakfast.

So, that's the news from here. Pretty boring, huh? I'll post pictures and stories from the race tomorrow. Until then, I hope you all are having a fun, boring (if you prefer) day. love and kisses to all! :)

Hey there, good luck in your race. I think Lisa and the kids are coming for Spring break and now they have scheduled surgery on my worst leg on April 1, so I don't know of our travel times. I was so looking forward to the Cherry Blossom Festivial.Will chat soon. Love you and miss you. Marie
