I'm craving pickles right now


and I have no idea why. I don't even like pickles. I like the marinated cucumbers that they put on a sandwich at Subway. But I don't like Subway, so I have no intention of meeting that craving with a bad sandwich. Sorry Jared.

I booked our hotel room for Ironman Arizona yesterday. That's fairly optimistic considering how between my knee, the wretched flu and the kids on Spring Break, my training has been shot to heck. I plan to do the Trail Mix 25k in 3 weeks and a 62 mile bike ride in 4. I think.

I wonder if some mental deficiency is contributing to the pickle problem. That might explain why I think I can run 15 miles on trails when I can barely run 8 on a flat, paved trail.

American Idol is way too much fun this year. I would buy Brooke White's album tomorrow.

I arrived at work Monday with a commendation letter on my desk and posted throughout the Y. Two weeks ago I helped to save a life. One of our older members went into to cardiac arrest, and I was one of two first responders. In first response, training is everything and I am incredibly grateful for mine being current and for giving me the confidence to know what to do and how to keep a cool head. If you don't know how to perform CPR go get certified. It's cheap, it's easy and it might make the difference between life and death for someone, someday.

The Tribe is on Spring break this week, but it hardly feels like spring at a whopping 34 degrees. I've heard promise of 60 next week, we'll see. They are having a great week, sleeping in, staying up late, etc.

Gotta run and meet up with Tac for a business meeting.

Pickles . . . hmmm. Craving pickles?

Just what kind of "business" meetings are you having with Tac Boy??! You're pregnant again, aren't you!!

It's Business Time.

Sounds like Tac isn't the only superhero in the house. My CPR training is long expired and luckily I've never needed to use it.

That's exactly my first though too greyhound.

Is there another addition coming to the tribe?

Bigun said...

Annie would be proud!

OMG...Your pregnant!!!!!

Lana said...

I don't think you woulda booked that hotel room if you were pregnant...so I'd say that craving is just coming from...mmmm...maybe a change in your taste buds or something. I'm not much of a pickle person, but for some reason I love to order a grilled cheese at a resturaunt and it come out with a couple of pickle slices on it...all greasy just like the grilled cheese!

Glad you guys are having fun on your spring break!

great picture of the tribe. i'm so fond of each of them. soap will always be my fave of course, but, i met her first.

i've always wanted to learn CPR, that's amazing that you could help someone like that. i need to make it a priority.

I think this long, freezing cold winter has affected all of our brains and messed us all up. What a way to head into April, dumped on by inches of snow! Sick of it too! Hope your running improves and that spring like weather comes back soon. You're a super woman in my book, great job with the Tribe too. They all look very healthy, happy, and sweet. :)

I think it was the gardening, in the ear, that got you excited about pickles :-) Sorry to hear your knee is still not 100%. Maybe some 60 degree weather will kick it into overdrive....
