Saturday Sampler: I won the lottery

I RUN TO BE
So Wednesday was like the best day ever. I woke up from a terrible night sleep and was going to complain about it on facebook, but before I did that I happen to check my email and found this:
Congratulations! You're register for the Nike Women's Marathon
I am so excited. I still need to focus on my 1/2 next month, but am really excited for my long term race goal for this year. Woo Hoo for more Tiffany's jewlery.

Wednesday was also my sister's birthday. I love all 42 years of her.
I got some other news Wednesday, but we'll save that for Monday. I pretty sure it is good stuff. Ay Dios Mio.

Thursday I left of a two day training. After training on Thursday night, I got to enjoy 5 new beers and their perfect cheese pairing.
Friday was a rough day, Super Hubby is out of town for golf and I really needed someone to talk to. Fortunately I had a couple friends come through for me, even one who exchanged text messages with me at 2:30 this morning when I found out my grandma died. There is lots of celebrating of her life to do so please no condolences. I want to focus on the happy things in my life and having spent time with my grandma in her last days was such a gift.
Why I Kick A$$: Wow, there are so many reasons, um let's go with I know how to be there for people when they need me.
Thankful Three:
  1. For my mom and two nieces who worked out taking care of my kids at 4AM so I could see my grandma one last time.
  2. For $1.40 Breakfast Jacks, not for me, but 12 for my family members at 6:30 AM + donuts is an affordable yet bad for you breakfast. We needed it.
  3. For a long hot shower.

No condolences, I agree that a celebration of life is always in order! May your happy memories carry you through the tough times of missing her.
And a huge CONGRATS on getting into Nike Women's!! What a lucky girl you are!
