cow town

tomorrow morning will mark my 2nd annual cowtown 10k race! here's a pic of me before last year's race... i look tired, and that's cause 4am comes awful early. ft worth is on the other side of town, so this'll be an early nighter... relatively speaking =)

it marches on. can't believe it's almost march already.

i'm sad to say goodbye to a few friends this week, bambam and blondie, longtime terrell residents. they've moved on to chase tennis balls in other pastures now.

my coworkers all pitched in to get me this very cool memorial stone to remember my grandma. it can go out in one of my flower beds - and it came with a gift card that i can use to buy a rose bush too. =)  i work with some awesome people, and really appreciate the thought they put into something i will use and enjoy!

on another note, jim and i have the cowtown 10k on saturday morning... and about 4 weeks to go til the dallas rock n roll half marathon! i need to get running!

hump day

today's photo is a recent sunset.

and today was full of drama with a broken down vehicle. but, a car repair is better than a car payment.

and as long as the repairs aren't monthly. and more than a payment. cause then it's time to re-evaluate =)

we cross them many times in life. under this one, it's all water under the bridge.

but i still like to look back across to see where i've traveled.
