Friday Things

Well, I managed to get 8.6 of the 9 miles I had planned on today; as I was finishing up my run I got a call from the coach at my son's sports camp.  I freaked out, naturally, only to have them tell me that he left his backpack open and his snack was taken by a crow.  Um, okaaaay...  He was rather upset about it (yes, he's five) and they were wondering if I was close enough to bring him a new snack.  Er, I'm out on a run and could be there in less than twenty minutes, but can you maybe ask the other kids to share?  Or something?  PEOPLE. It's three hours - I think he'll live!  This is not Defcon 1 here.  I'm thinking they probably could have handled it without me.  But as I hung up, I hemmed and hawed about what a bad mother I am, that I shouldn't have been more than 10 minutes away, that my kid was probably having an epic fit, and, and, and...  So my head just wasn't in it anymore and I cut my run a tad short, only to pick up a very contented boy who snagged a Cliff Kid's Z Bar (which was what the crow took, by the way) and some baby carrots off the other kids.  I should send him to camp sans snack more often!

Here's some random fun from the internets this week.  Via Whoorl's facebook page: someone has added a recipe for ICE on Food.com.  The comments are fantastic fun.

I think we might have to finally trek down to Point Defiance Zoo!  Lauren shared this on Twitter the other day and I just about died - watch to the end.



As many folks are aware it's Hood to Coast weekend and if you want to follow some of the action, check out #NuunHTC on Twitter - many great gals are running for Nuun

Since I shared quite a few songs yesterday, instead of adding a new one today, I thought I'd compile my list and just add to it every Friday so it's all together in one place.  I linked to Amazon because I have an Android phone and that's how I buy/listen to my music.  Hope it helps if you're looking to change up your playlist.  Happy Weekend!

  2. I think we all go thru the "I'm a horrible mother..." thing now and then, ha ha A crow, whoa! Great music list ... I may have to steal some myself! I've had the David Guetta "Without You" for a while now. I'm thinking I need to comb through some straight-up Usher and see if anything else will work. I've recently added new Train and Matchbox Twenty :)
