Wednesday weirdness

Crazy at work today......and the day just started badly.  I was trying to finish up a knitting project, which I should never try to do before work.  Then the toilet plugged up and Ihad to plunge, so I was a few minutes late for work, which just put me behind and in a rush all morning.  I have to learn not to rush around so much, but after 61 years, I have a feeling it is too late for change!

Have a sports banquet tonight with my granddaughter and it is all so surreal...I am going to the same cafeteria in the same high school for the same sport that I attended some 18 years ago with my beautiful daughter, my granddaughter could be her twin, so it is all very weird and where did the time go?????  Seems like yesterday I was there with my daughter!   Good thing that I am not getting any older...just they are!

As soon as I figure out how to put pictures on this site, I will post some of my knitting ventures.

I ran a half marathon this past Saturday and it was a killer!  A lot of hills and I have not trained on hills!  Maybe I am too old to be doing these darn things, but they sure are fun (most of the time).  I just applied for the NYC marathon next November.  Since I am not a fast enough runner to qualify, I will have to wait and see if I get picked for the lottery.  Hope so!  I wasn't ever going to do another marathon, but this opporunity came to me, as far as a place to stay, and someone to cart me around, who knows NYC, so I am going to give it a whirl.  This means months of training again, but one more time!!!!  We'll see!

Well here we go.....

Well I have decided to start a blog again.  I have done this before and don't seem to keep up with it, but I am going to try and be diligent this time around.

I am hoping to attract some fellow runners and knitters in this quest.
