sorry secret pal!

I'm sorry it's taken me a few days to say that I received my first present! I got it on Friday, and I love it! Pictures to come later. I am in massive cleaning mode, our place is a mess and of course while I'm cleaning, what is the boy doing? Sleeping! The bum!

All day today I have been tracking my family's progress in the Chicago Marathon! Part of me is just glad it is over with, I couldn't help worrying about my dad running it. He did great though, my 58 year old dad finished at 5:32 beating my 22 year old brother who finished at 5:52! My dad wanted to break 5 hours, I think he should be happy he was able to run at all, I mean he did just have open heart surgery in February! One of our friends finished at 2:42! Wow, that was like 173 overall! I couldn't have run one mile at the pace he was at. That being said, I have been exercising lately, at least 3 times a week I do 20 minutes on the elliptical machine. This is big progress for me, as in its progress just getting my ass off the couch.

Back to cleaning and then moving on to mountains of homework!

Oh, goodie! I'm it got to you and no worries, you're a very busy gal! I know lots of people that have been running marathons lately too and I don't know how they do it, I am just not a runner.
