I needed one of these signs this morning!!!

Yep…ran a different route than the other runners this morning at the local “Race for  the Cure”..  Dodged holes running through a field with my buddy.  Two other runners followed us.  Bless their hearts!  I guess we just looked like we knew where we were going!  I love when crap like that happens!!!  Added some mileage but beautiful run!  Awesome race for a GREAT cause!

You’re not in Kansas, Toto…

The Toto Story:

I saw Toto on the side of a highway coming home from work one day.   She had her paws on the white line, just sitting and watching the cars drive by.  I made an illegal u-turn and came back around and pulled off the road.  I walked slowly up then down to my knees I reached out my hand.  Her tail started wagging so hard that her whole body got in rhythm.  I put her in my car on my lap and she didn’t move the whole way home.  The ride was approximately 25-30 minutes, so I had time to figure out how I was going to introduce Toto to my husband.  We already had several dogs, (we also claimed 2 dogs that don’t belong to us), so I wasn’t sure how my husband was going to respond to our new addition.  When Toto and I arrived home, I let her out and our big dogs immediately came over to check her out.  My husband was busy in his huge 3 bay shop doing who knows what!  Toto seeked refuge under my car since the other dogs couldn’t fit.  I walked in the house and waited.  About 30 minutes later, Stephen came in and excitedly told me about this cute little dog who just happened to come up on our property and how she was getting along so well with the other dogs…  I didn’t say a word for about 3 weeks.  I let him fall in love before I broke the news of how Toto found us.

2 Chocolate doves and a vintage leather jacket on Ebay…

So, today is my last day of Spring Break 2012. I have had a wonderful break, working out, running, and blogging when I feel like it.  Not devastated by the fact, but adjusting, I found love and fun with friends this afternoon.   I got the opportunity to run with Mitchell and Tom…and felt GOOD, finally!  I got to spend some time helping a friend put her first “vintage” item for sale on ebay.  Then I stumbled upon a veterinarian pepperoni tea party…My lemon(landscaping river rock), for my tea, was little cumbersome.  The slide was quick and I swear I didn’t step in the poop.  Anyway, the two dove chocolates that I knew I would eat on the way home revealed, “Laugh whenever possible.” and “Give yourself a relaxation break.”  …

Which is what I was doing before I ever unwrapped those chocolates!
