Moe, for better or worse

This blog used to be called "one year in the life of a short fat runner"; then it was called "Am I a runner? you decide." I've decided running isn't the thing I need to talk about'll come up for sure, but it's just one part of me, so I think I'll just call this blog: Moe, for better or worse.

Sunshiney day

the weather has brightened up. So has my mood. Gawd, I hate rain.

I didn't run last night because I minded my favorite 6yo. She's a hoot. We played Twister.

I am too old for Twister. Oy.

(must remember to bring Twister to Madison...;) )

Tonight I'm running with Patty and Penny. Two P at the Pond. Heh. Patty won't go as far as I need to, so I've got to get in a mile before I see her...but no biggie. Plus Penny will be tuckered out even more when we get home. And a tired pup is a good pup.

My head's been in a spin lately, which always spells trouble. Two of my best imaginary friends have helped me make some headway with my thoughts this week, and I love them for it. They are good friends to me. YOu know who are you, thanks guys.

I had my annual lady exam today. I certainly hope I have nothing to worry about. I always think the worst and hope for the best. My BP was 130/80...because I have "white coat syndrome"; I could feel my heart knocking around in my chest while I was there. Not that that's so high, but higher than it would be now, I assume.

The nurse gave me the johnny to was like a super little swing jacket with 3/4 sleeves and a turned up collar! Only in light blue paper with velcro closures. Weird. It also only came to my belly button, but that's what the extra drape is for, right? Besides, there is no modesty at the lady doctor.

Except of course for the fact that I feel compelled to type "lady doctor" and not use the "g" word.

Roberto went to a meeting last night about JP Open Studios. I'm happy he's become involved in the artists' community here. He desperately needed something to occupy his time besides me. I'm great and all, but seriously, not that great.

Hey girlie, I'm really happy to see you getting out there and hitting the pavement.

I also like that now I can imagine where you run!

You are a great lady, don't forget that, 'kay?
