I'm tired. It's after 9:00pm here and I am still awake. That doesn't bode well for the morning. I am tired.
I just rolled in this evening from Cedar City. It's been a long day. We have had terrible winds across the state and many gusts were up to 60 mph and higher. Little scary on the 'ole I-15 with the trucks swaying all around me. There was one UPS rig, that had three trucks all hitched together that I swear was gonna go over right on me. I am glad to be home.
I lost a follower today. What's that all about? There seems to be some weird vibes in the blog world. I don't want any part of it. I just want to enjoy my blog, enjoy others and be friends with everyone. Sorry that I ticked someone off. Or was too boring for them. Or was too inappropriate. Whatever. I guess since I am blogging for me and my journal, then it shouldn't matter right? So why does it? Good question. I suppose it might be someone that also defriended me on FB. Oh well.
As I mentioned before I spent a couple of days in Cedar City. I don't care much for Cedar. I think it stems back from my first work trip there with a bestie from my team. Our experience was awful. We hated every single minute of it. Since then we have referred to it as the armpit of the state. Sorry to the Cedarites - nothing personal, just not a fan of the city.
I was a fan however, of running early in the morning there at sunrise. It reminded me of the Red Rock Relay we did last year. Fun memories. And the people that I interact with down there are awesome!
Speaking of relay's. I'm doing Wasatch Back Ragnar Relay with the Legally Dead team. They are an awesome team with some good friends. I am runner 9. Not sure I am ready for the distance and hills I am assigned, but I am STOKED to hop in the 'burb and hit with the team! Good freaking times!
My cute Jordan has a melt down everytime I come home. If I've been gone for a few days, she is even worse. Cries like a friggin baby! It takes several minutes to calm her down and get her to shut her yapper. Nothing like the feeling of love from your dog!
Gonna see a PT tomorrow for my chicken wing problem. Thanks to Johnny at my orthopod office, I am getting in and getting it looked at. Also huge shout out to Patty who totally worked around my freaking schedule. I have great health care providers. Seriously. The best ever!
Our state has an execution scheduled for midnight Thursday night/Friday morning. I know that people have differing opinions on the death penalty, and I don't want to get all political, but in this particular instance, there isn't a better example of why the death penalty is appropriate. Ronnie Lee Gardner is a career criminal and as you read about his life - his is the prime example of why it should be carried out. I know that all across the nation, eyes are on the state of UT and this latest drama. Interesting.
Tuffy is in Las Vegas all week with his girlfriend, her sister and their Grandma. Should I be concerned? I am choosing not to think about it. I did just send him a message to remind him NOT to look at the ground as they walk the strip. NOT to accept any handouts from the guys passing out cards. NOT to make any eye contact. And when not enjoying the lights - look straight ahead.
I would like him to come home now.
Back to WBR - I am so excited for this weekend's relay race I can hardly stand it! Of course I have to be at the captain's house at 2:30 in the effing morning, but I figure I have several hours before I have to run, so I plan on sleeping. I just can't wait to run, hang with my teammates and prove to myself that I can do my hard legs.
The weaning off the caffeine is going well. The first two days, I had a small headache at bedtime, but nothing that couldn't be slept off. Now, remember I'm not going cold turkey. That would be dumb. But the weaning process is going well.
Did I mention that I'm tired? I think I'll go to bed and sleep in until at least 6. Which is totally sleeping in for me!
