-this title intentionally left blank-

It's been quite a week.

Good news came in threes on Monday: Son was notified that he has been named a National Merit Finalist (very good news if he decides to go to Texas A&M). Son was notified that he has been chosen to receive the highest level scholarship at the local university (very good news if he decides to go to UNM). I won a cheetah print and pink running skirt off ebay (very good news regardless of where Son decides to go to school).

And....I've been tracking the running skirt package and I *think* it will arrive today or tomorrow...just in time for my race this weekend. Woot!! Sure, I'll have to wear it over tights, but whatever!

Which, as it turns out, is NOT on my birthday, but the day after. Still a good way to celebrate.

Beyond that, it's been a busy week at work. And Husband's birthday was yesterday. So...I'm behind on your posts, but I'm expecting several of them to be complaining about the crazy huge snowfall out east, yes?

Running group meets tonight. Long birthday run Saturday. Race on Sunday. It's shaping up to be a good weekend. :-)
