I can’t believe it’s been nearly a month since I’ve blogged. So much is going on . . . more about the cantaloupes and baseballs next week. In the meantime, with the help of my ever-so-helpful Aussies, I spent the entire morning hosing frack dust off my plants and I am crossing my fingers that I don’t lose any more. I had to replace several today, it made me sad.
[Insert big fat sigh right here]
Our big hunk-a-lunk of loving Donkey is taking a nap – he still favors sleeping on his non-cancerous side. His shaved square is so silly looking, but we love him still. The report from the vet says the cancer was well removed and he has an 85% chance of a full recovery. He goes in for a check up soon and I’ll give you the full report then.
Are we not in Texas anymore? They said the windchill around White Rock Lake was -2 degrees. Wind blowing sideways. Really. Sideways. The bridges were covered with ice. Ice, in Texas. Ice. Real, live icy stuff. Where is global warming when you need it? I don’t know if that is accurate or not, but it seriously felt like we were in Antarctica. I have never, ever, ever, ever been so cold. The last four miles of the race absolutely brutal – there wasn’t a place on my body that wasn’t numb. I’m still cold. Really. And I’m chaffed so bad I’m still oozing puss. Gross, I know.
My time: 2:14:05 – which, considering the wind was blowing sideways and it was either move or die of frostbite, I’m okay with. If it wasn’t for Jeanne and Nod I would have bailed. I’m so glad they are here!! And I can’t wait to share our shopping extravaganza reports with you.
Are we the cutest Popsicles on the planet or what? Jeanne did great, Nod did great, Donkey did great, I did great. When in Antarctica, survival is the only thing that matters.
More photos here. And funny thing is, this was the smallest part of our vacation. I almost forgot we ran a half marathon. Silly me. More on that later. Fun. Fun. Fun. I love them both – I want to adopt them and force them to live with me.
