Why? STUPID SNOW!!!!!!
I received a call today about noon from my immediate supervisor reminding me that I was on the schedule to work tomorrow, Monday, 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM. She felt the need to remind me of that given the trecherous road conditions. She wanted to gently remind me that if I didn't make it in to fulfill my shift, I'd receive an unexcused absence (I'm confused...is this elementary school...). She suggested that I might want to consider coming in this evening and spending the night so I'd be sure to be here bright and early and ready to go at 6:45 AM. After some deliberation and pouting and nagging from my husband how what's melted today would be a sheet of ice at 6:00 AM tomorrow, I packed my bags, slugged my way to the car and got here about 5:30 this evening.
My room for the night looks something like this, minus the window of course.
And I can't find the remote to the TV. The woman staying in the room a few doors down from me relunctantly let me borrow hers. Well, actually, she walked in my room, turned the TV on, asked me what channel I wanted to watch and proceeded to push the buttons herself. I asked if she minded if I just held onto the remote for a short 3 mintues to surf through the channels myself? After I assured her I'd return the thing and gave her the name and address of my first born, she slapped the clicker in my hand and huffed back down the hall. Looks like I'll be watching something called "Snapped" all night because I'm a little afraid to approach that woman again!
Oh my God, will it ever be hot and humid again here???

But I'm focused and determined now and have my work schedule set so that I have three good days per week set aside for training. And I'm registered so there's no turning back now!
I'm sure I'll run passionately - ugly but passionately. And I will finish - slowly but I will finish!
So think of me while you're enjoying the champagne and chocolates that I know your significant others will be treating you to.
And I have my fingers crossed that they'll at least have a bag of stinking Hershey Kisses for us at the finish line!
