i thought about posting every day for the past week..

and obviously i haven't. i hate my 'in between weeks' at work where it feels like i barely even get a day off because by the time i get on everyone else's normal sleep schedule.. i have to go back to work. bleh.

last night i watched 'this is it' with my grandma and then we all had dinner at my mom's. it was really nice. i need to spend more time with my grandparents. they're so funny.. even if they do repeat themselves a lot. "that michael jackson.. he is just an angel! it makes me sick to think he's dead. SICK!" -grandma at about 25 different times through the course of the movie.

whenever i'm at the computer.. this is what i look down to underneath the desk. she wants to say hi:
my important decision (in progress) for the week is deciding whether or not i want to do the san francisco half marathon at the end of july. i really think i can do it. i mean.. it's the beginning of march, which gives me almost 4 months to train. and the second half of the course has a 16-minute mile time.. something i DEFINITELY know i can do, considering the last 2 i did had 14-minute mile times. plus, it's in san francisco!!! i'm leaning towards yes.. but that means i need to organize my training crap and get my head in the game.

yes, i went there.

we'll see. hopefully i'll make my decision by the end of the week. in the meantime, i'm going to be making a white/lemon cake with mango mousse filling for david's birthday on saturday. wish me luck!

You should totally do the half-marathon! The only thing that would make me hesitate is the fact that it's in July. When it's hot. Uggg. But do it! That way I can live vicariously through you. =)

You can call me, Hammy said...

Agreed!! Do the half marathon... and then tell me that I should start running too (not for a marathon, but just to work out). :) Then we can go on mini runs together! (I say mini because you'll totally be off running and i'll be gasping for air behind you!) LOL

okay okay i'll do it already.. but lisa.. seriously. when i'm training.. my 'running' isn't really running.. it's more... jog 1 minute. walk briskly 2 minutes. rinse and repeat. hahaha.

ugh.. in need to sign up to motivate myself.
