I am sitting here, in a cabin just off the beach. Most folks would consider this Heaven. I do enjoy the beach...I love watching the kiddos have fun...They love the beach:) I have never been much of a sun/beach person. I don't know...give me a ski resort any day of the week.
Here's what kills me. No (yes no) TV, and really just the tiniest bit of internet (teeny, tiny). Currently, the internet has timed out again, so I am typing...then I will save...then I will restart the internet and post. Why bother, you ask? I enjoy blogging. That is what I do to relax. I'll go you one better, I enjoy TV! While Husband reads every night, I blog and watch TV. I will not apologize! I just told Sissy today (hi Sissy *waving*) "television and internet are like a warm blanket".
So, there it is. I am out here in the boondocks, on vacation, with no TV and just enough internet to drive me crazy. I will be back on Tuesday to catch up with you all. That is not so bad, right? Monday, then Tuesday...TV and the high speed good stuff!
Can you believe Husband was able to tear me away from the Olympics? I can't...What did I miss? I know I missed the men's marathon, bummer!
Oh, speaking of running...how did my 18 miler go, you ask? It was what I am calling a complete disaster! Husband mapped out an 18 mile course in the car (wasn't that sweet?). So, off I go...3 hours later, and I am nowhere near done! There is no way I am running slower than 10 min. miles, and I'm thinking I should be done. Basically, I called it quits after three hours. I ran somewhere between 16-18 miles. I really can't figure out how I was going for so long? The 16 miler only took two and a half hours...no way 18 would have taken more than three hours?!? All I can figure is we had the distance off. I am calling it a miserable three hour workout and calling it a day...
I will be back in full force on Tuesday...until then, I promise, I will enjoy the beach:)
