Three Things Thursday

1.   We received a lot of plants and flowers at the funeral last week.  The flowers are beginning to look a little sad, but so far I haven’t killed any of the plants.  It’s a modern-day miracle.

2.   I’ve proven to  myself a couple of times that I’m unable to quit the blog, and since I’m gonna stick around I need to make some changes.  I’d like to rename it to something more personified and maybe migrate it to WordPress, but that all seems like a gigantic pain in the ass.  But you know what else is a pain in the ass?  It’s latest thing is telling me I’m not following any blogs.  It does it almost every day, but I can refresh the page over and over and finally it will pull my blog roll up.

3.   I finally found a shirt for RnR St. Louis next month!  I’ve got several Cardinals t-shirts, but they’re all cotton.  You wouldn’t think it would be this hard to find a ladies Cardinals tech shirt, but it was!  All I could find were men’s until I found this one on

These Things Make Me Happy

The fabulous Kate at So Cal Runner Gal recently did a post, and I absolutely loved it, so I’m stealing it!  Her post was inspired by this question that she saw on Facebook:

My list right now would be…
  • The way my hair feels, looks, and smells right after I leave the salon
  • Cool nights and sleeping with the windows open
  • Snoring dogs
  • Smiling dogs
  • Seeing muscles beginning to develop where there used to be none
  • Falling asleep to the sound of a cat purring beside my head
  • New outfits
  • Vacation days and sleeping in–just because
  • Planting flowers

  • The year’s first blooms on Lucy’s rose bush.  I planted it at her grave in our yard the day after we buried her almost 5 years ago.  The new blooms remind me that she lives on.
