Oh, you guys. I’m failing so hard at this running thing. I think I’ve gone two miles in the last two weeks, and am barely motivated to do more. I’m doing such a bad job! Maybe I’ll focus on not more miles, but more quality miles. Getting faster. I’m very slow, which is not bad […]

Spring!

It’s Spring! And it’s crappy out at the moment of this writing, but we have some lovely weather coming up. Who’s planning on putting in a garden, but not quite getting around to it yet?

I don’t know about you, but a three-day weekend seems much more civilized than those brutish and short two-day ones.  You can go out of town, enjoy some social time, and then still have time to get your affairs (i.e., laundry, etc.)  in order.  I approve. On Friday afternoon, we headed to Black Butte Ranch […]
