Goodbye November!

Happy Thanksgiving! One more month and it's almost surreal 2009 will be in the books. My personal year in review can seem at times, a blurry undefined mix of life lessons packed into 12 short months. I'm ready to bank them and walk away from 2009 feeling sharper, stronger, if not a bit wiser. If you can take what life tosses in your lap
and reflect on how you managed each crisis and feel content in the choices you've made in the end, what more can one ask for?

I am currently typing away on my PinkBerry posting this latest entry. My laptop has been on the brink of death and out of commission for over a week now due to my carelessness in downloading a bad virus from an innocent looking email from someone I know but didn't actually send the email through Face Book. I wound up the winner in the end. It's now sporting some fresh new blazing fast RAM it badly needed and Windows 7 instead of XP and some other fun new toys including the latest in virus protection I'm just waiting to get my mits on. Thank you Nate! I scored a awesome IT wizard, who I've offered up a kidney for his services yet all he really wants is beer along with a modest fee. The thing is, I am stressed about this because I have much respect for The Wizard and the hitch is, its up to me to *figure out* on my own what kind of beer to offer. I have been given no hints yet my choice will determine if I am deemed worthy of The Wizard's services again.


In other news, I have my Adopt A US Soldier! Katie is her name and she is overseas in the thick of it. 2 cards and a care package are on the way so far.

After being a lard ass for a few weeks, I am back to some structure. My run will be a huge focus for me this year. I am currently running 6 days a week. 3-20 min runs. 2-40 minute runs and one long run of about 1:20 to start with. The hardest part? Mentally thinking I have to lace up my shoes everyday but one a week.

Consistency yields results they say.

Okay AWESOME about the running and even more cool about the 'Adopt a Soldier'. That is SO cool!

Happy Thanksgiving, E.
I had some random FB messages too, and they suck. I think i escaped this time. Hope you had a chance to make the Miso Salmon!

I like the 6 day a week plan. I'm stealing it. Hope you don't mind. :-)
