Flying solo for the next week and a half...brain's a wee bit fried right now, so here we go...
*Work stuff is hitting frantic mode...less than two months out from our first event of the season and I'm still searching for sponsors. However, on a very cool note...I finally found a media outlet to run a feature series on our adult/child team adventure race. Yea. When the publisher of a local family magazine emails me and tells me that she looked over our website and it was by far the coolest thing she's ever seen...it's a great feeling...sort of makes all of this worth it. So...back to frantic mode...I'm meeting with their production team later this week. Would it be tacky to take along my writing portfolio? Just wondering.
*I'm living with a red headed, 26 pound ball of meltdown fury...she was just a little pissed off yesterday when it finally dawned on her that Daddy wasn't home and wasn't going to be home any time soon. This morning was fun.
*The dark side of the EOD/k9 wife role...I spent an hour out in the backyard yesterday picking up dog crap. Snow and ice had finally cleared out, and the kiddos couldn't even go out an play due to big, heaping yard mines! I don't get paid enough. Wait...I don't get paid at all...
*In the "silver lining" theme...in the middle of poop scooping yesterday I came across wee little crocus buddlings popping up...and that only means one thing...SPRING!
*The commercial playing during the Olympics...the one with the kids and the mom at the end? "To their moms they'll always be kids"? I cry. Every. Single. Time.
*Weather forecast is calling for more snow tomorrow. I'm ignoring it. In my head I'm laying on the beach in Mombasa.
So there you go. I'm going to bed.
