Miscellany Monday

Miscellany Monday @ lowercase letters

Today I'm linking up with Carissa at lowercase letters for Miscellany Monday.

ONE -  Weather - I can't believe this heat. Sometimes I walk outside and it almost feels suffocating. The 20 feet or so I walk from my office to my car in the afternoons is enough to do me in. I've said it before, but I will forever be grateful to this man, Willis Haviland Carrier - inventor of the air conditioner.

TWO - Running - After almost 4 years, I'm really starting to love it. Don't get me wrong, it's still EXTREMELY hard to get up at 5AM and get started. And I still ask myself a dozen times while I'm running what is wrong in my fool head to put myself through that BUT - the feeling afterwards is indescribable.

THREE - I'll be an Aunt again in November! (No, not Mama Hen.) Hubs sister, Kay is PG with a boy! I just can't wait for him to get here!

FOUR- I caught an episode of Toddlers &Tiaras this weekend and I've gone from being speechless to ranting to back to speechless. It would be interesting to see a "Where Are They Now" on these little girls in 20 years. Do they even have a chance? So sad...

FIVE - My baby brother turned 34 yesterday. It's amazing how that can happen when I'm just 29...

Have a great Monday!

Ha! I chuckled (and then nodded in agreement) about Mr. Carrier. What would we do without that ac?

And, I've seen a portion of that show. You're right -- it just seems crazy to me. And those little girls? They just don't get to be little.

Have a great monday. Oh yeah, and by the way, my baby brother is 31 and I still can't figure that out since I'm 29 as well. ;)


Mama Hen said...

Well, what I don't understand is how you could be my baby sister and Del my baby brother when I am only 25!

The running thing-you go girl!

Visiting from miscellany monday! I agree--AC is pretty darn awesome with this heat. Congrats on being an Aunt again! I'll be a first-time Aunt in December :)

Liz said...

Oh I am sooo thankful for the AC!!!

I really hate running I push myself to do it but I really only enjoy the feeling afterwards.

I am blown away by Toddlers & Tiaras. It's just not normal. (for me anyway.) I would like to see where they are in 20 years.

I saw you are reading The Help do you like it?? I have been meaning to pick it up.


Stephanie said...

Loving the AC as well- it just kicked on here in the house :)

And good for you for running- I wish I had that motivation!!

Janna said...

Lori said...

I totally have to agree with you about Toddlers and Tiaras. I tihnk it will be VERY interesting to see those girls in a few years.

and at least you run! I need to get off of my butt :)

New follower, please stop on by..

I just tell myself that those Toddlers aren't really REAL toddlers - they MUST just be a figment of my TV's imagination.
