Welcome Taryn.

On the purple - . Totally entertaining.

To me I mean. Probably not to your foot/leg or your doctor.

It's such a surprise that you and Erika mesh. Kind of the same chip that would make someone dive into a lake - in freezing water of course - to get a screw that fell. I love that ridiculous chip.

Katy Perry's asking "are you brave enough to let me see your peacock?".

Just a question - but is this an alien man she's talking about? I didn't realize it took bravery. The things I'm unaware of.....

ohmygoodness. I never told you my latest "at least I have legs story".

So, as most of you know, just before Christmas I was diagnoised with arthritis in my left hip. Not fun. Or curable. But with the right treatments, managable. I was having a really hard time accepting the fact that I had to adjust some things in my life, and that my doctors (3 of them now), my physical therapist AND my personal trainer all were telling me that this upcoming Princess should be my last.

I was at the gym feeling sorry for myself as I limped my way thru a ridiculously short run - like 2 miles. (which is, Lisa, SHORT in terms of training, so don't argue with me! ) when in walked a woman with one arm. She had been coming fairly regularly so it wasn't a big surprise.

Then (same day) a middle aged man came in. I'd seen him a couple times before, sporadically. He has a prosthetic leg. Again, I'd seen him previously so no huge "ah-ha" for me.

BUT! (yes, still the same day) a young guy - maybe in his 20's? - came in. With crutches, and a prosthetic leg. This whole situation was clearly new to him as his movement was awkward and unsure.

Somebody was clearly trying to send a message to me. I shut up and finished my run, and haven't complained since no matter HOW my hip felt.

My kitty is anything BUT adorable. The two older girls are fine. (well, truth be told, I think the old lady is getting feline alzheimers, which is kinda cute sometimes). But the little monster? Annoying as all he!!. To call him "little" is not accurate either. He's at least 10 pounds now. And smelly really, he's a boy (yes, neutered. I'd say "fixed" but my kids would say "broken" ) and he's insane, crazy, stupid. He jumped into the refrigerator last night when I was cleaning up after dinner. IN it. And he tries to climb in the feezer, cabinets, dishwasher...everywhere. Totally irritating. Attacks everything except his toys. He is constantly getting himself kicked out of the house.

Anyone want a kitty? Who could resist after a glowing recommendation like that?
So much to say ....

Princess - So sad for me. So sad. The thought of following you guys from home makes me so frustrated. And I'm afraid I won't be giving and loving enough not to be crying mad if I do. I'll be way too bitter and jealous to follow you all around your drunken WS whirl.

BUT I will try for NYC Nancy. It costs me nada - well besides the annoying tolls. I stay at a friend's place so it's just gas and eating. And THAT I'm skilled at doing on the cheapest of cheap. If I can do it - it will be the week before you leave for FL. That's our March break. Well Spring break to you anti-taxation people.

Your kitty - he's a male. That's it. I told Jean if she was getting cats I must have a male cat and two. I LOVE them. So we've had three. Frankie who is sick. Billie, his brother (real one), who died. And Neville, his new brother from another mother, because when Billie died for MONTHS Frankie lived in a closet and cried ALL NIGHT AND EVERY NIGHT for Billie. Not something you can listen to over and over while you're missing him too. I would only do males. In fact, I made it my mission. Male cats are so entertaining.

But the jumping into the fridge and the dishwasher would scare the crap out of me.

The arthritis. I saw it earlier and felt like crap. How did I miss that? I'm sorry Nancy - that's insanely frustrating for someone so active and focused.

But one good thing - well I shouldn't use good - it's not good - one part that is not completely negative - it will be a reason NOT TO DO SOMETHING YOU DON'T EVEN LOVE - running. I know - I know - no one wants such sh!t to accomplish that feat.

That sucks Nancy. Did you suspect before the diagnosis?

As for your gym story - it's in moments like that where I just smirk and look up. Like "okay - okay - okay - I got it!"

Of course she would.

We need a new picture Nancy.

Lisa, your kitties are adorable!!! I always used to think I was a dog person(I mean, I'm a petsitter after all!) but in recent years I've really become just as attached to my cats.

Hi Kim! Welcome back! I've only been around about a year, so it's nice to "meet" you!
That IS insightful Karen. Smart son.

Me too Karen. I LOVE them. But I've called them puppies their entire life. Come here puppies.

Apparently they don't like commands.

I bet you did.

Of course you weren't going to miss it. I would have been "thank you doctor"

I'm the ONLY non-runner on here Taryn. But I love me a race.

Why is it that some people find running to be an appetite suppresant, but the more I exercise the hungrier I am?

I love how "1/2 stone" sounds so much better than 7lbs! It's only 1/2 stone.

I am with you on this one. I ran 11 miles last weekend and then came home and grazed for the rest of the day.

All 3 of mine do that. Drives Stephen nuts!

Wow, she's using her big whistle Karen. Fine work Nancy.

You can tell Stephen that no A/C in the summer is a much more annoying and nuts inducing habit. I WILL NEVER get over that Nancy.

Hi Lisa!!

Remember Paula is a cyclist and doesn't classify herself as a runner.

Sad you can't make it.

Also, I have two female cats.


Taryn, we will be at the expo on Saturday so maybe we can meet up? Where are you staying for Princess weekend?
