6 miles

on the treadmill at the gym, because I was too lazy to get my butt out of bed before the outside turned into a sauna. Total time 62:00, including time I had to jump off and check the kids' club when they called someone with my first name and a similar last name on the loudspeaker. It's very unusual to hear my first name unless they mean me, so I was a little concerned until I got there and realized it wasn't my kid that was screaming his lungs out. Mine came running up to me and said, "I'm not ready to go yet!!!" So back on the TM for the rest of my run. Non eventful and dreadfully boring, especially since the iPod was dead as a doornail and I didn't have my tunes. So I had to watch the View and All My Children with captions. For some reason, about 5 of the treadmills were inoperable, so every working one was being used and there wasn't really the option of moving around to be in front of another monitor. Bah. No matter, I got it done and now I'm about to have a veggie burger crumbled over my salad, yummy. We're in charge of desserts for the cookout this afternoon so I've got to figure out what I want to bring. I'm hoping the rain holds off so we can actually swim outside -- would completely suck if we couldn't even get in the water. But there will be fireworks, so, yee-haw!

Anyway, must eat now so I can clean up and then fold the laundry that's been piling up. Later, skaters!!

Is it ever going to stop raining here?! Arggh! I really don't know how you do it, training and raising the kids. Kudos to you.
