Nothing to say

I don't have much to say lately.  I've been running, but it's been boring.  I've been pushing the stupid jogging stroller and it's been a million degrees even in the morning.  I have dropped Maggs off at my parents house a few times because it's been so damn hot.  I hate the heat.  I'd rather it be 20 degrees outside than it be this hot and humid. 

We are having a party tomorrow.  It's supposed to be close to 90 degrees, but less humidity.  Hopefully it will be ok outside because we don't really have enough room for everyone inside. 

Next weekend we are going back up to the lake for a family reunion.  I'm excited to see everyone and I love running there.  Hopefully we don't all fry like bacon in the heat! 

One exciting thing that is going on is that Dave Matthews Band announced a few weeks ago that they will be finishing up their summer tour at Wrigley.  When I heard this I joined the Warehouse and requested some presale tickets.  We find out today if I got them and I'm super excited.  Yesterday I noticed a preauthorization on my debit cards for the amount of the tickets.  I'm hoping this means that we got them, but Dave burst my bubble last night and said they probably preauthorize all the cards to make sure there is money available before they decide who does and doesn't get the tickets.  I've been constantly refreshing my web browser waiting for the "processing" to turn to "accepted" Cross your fingers for me!!!!

50 lb Lead Weights

This is what my legs felt like this morning.  It was not fun.  I wanted to quit in the first 5 minutes.  I pushed for 3.1 super slow, agonizing miles.  Yuck!  I hope whoever stole my legs and replaced them with 50 lb lead weights returns them before Monday!!!

4th of July Weekend

Yeah I know, 4th of July weekend was a whole week ago, but it is what it is right?

We headed up to the lake on Thursday afternoon and we had a wonderful time! My grandparents had just gotten there when we got there.  My parents and my brothers and sister in law got there the next day.  My Aunt and Uncle and cousins were there as well. 

I just love going to the lake.  It is so peaceful and beautiful there.  Even though we have tv and cell phone coverage (kind of) and WiFi there, we spent almost all of our time outside either playing bags, walking around town, or just hanging out on the porch. 

Maggie had a great time too.  She slept very well the whole time until the last night.  She slept right through the fireworks even though I was sure she would wake up.  She went on the boat a couple times and loved it, even with her life jacket on.  We went swimming in the lake and she loved that too. 

I ran 5 miles on Saturday morning.  I was planning on doing 6 miles, but I didn't go early enough and it was super super hot.  I inhaled a bug right around 5 miles and decided that I would just be done right then! Yuck!!! Dave and I ran together on Monday and it was hot and really humid.  I ended up running 3.5 even though I felt like I was dying the whole time.   I think it was a combination of too many cheesy potatoes the night before and the fact that I had drank more beer than water every day of the weekend.  Oops! 

This week has been HOT AND HUMID.  Today was the first day that the humidity was less than 95%.  Yuck!  I can't wait until fall!!!!
