Ok, Ok, yes, I have been absent...
I have been busy and I have been lazy. I have been avoiding my blog. I got a few days behind in reading some other witty blogs and I had a bunch of stuff on my plate such as getting the Kiwanis Kids Triathlon, that I am the race director for, off the ground and running and then I had the funk start in. I just had no desire to blog. I had a few things to take care of at home such as keeping some people happy that I was not doing anything that related to triathlons and cleaning the house for imaginary house guests. And then it happened...I got sucked into playing on-line games. At first, it was just Pop-it, then it Sweet tooth, and then (sob...) I sucumbed to Word Whomp!
The more I played Word Whomp! the more I would kick myself for being a bad person with a degree in English that could not create enough 3 to 6 letter words from the six letters that I was given to fill all the blanks at the top of the page. I have a minor in Linguistics and I can't get the gopher past the first F--k'n carrot of extra points!!! At least with Ma-Jong Safari I could collect all the animals and win points to be able to grant tokens to other players. With Word Whomp! I am failing miserably!
Ok, have have been doing more than playing Word Whomp! I sucessfuly pulled off my third Kiwanis Kids Triathlon with 128 kids between the ages of 6 and 13. I met Viv out at the Jeff & Brede's Triathlon when I was working on the bike course. I put in three good solid run workouts last week of 6.8, 9.6 and 12.1 miles along with a track workout. I went and saw The Dark Knight (not for kids!) and LOVED it. And, I got the house pressure washed, the carpets cleaned. and the tile and grout cleaned as well. I had to pay someone else to do the last part, but I had to move all the furniture and that was a mess.
Now I have to get caught up on everyone else's blog and resist the urge to play more Word Whomp!
