just updated the food blog with some weekend eats.
i'm sitting here not getting excited about going to master's alone in the morning. 5am seems much less threatening when james makes coffee and pretty much puts a leash on me and leads me in the direction of the pool. but tomorrow he is up in irvine doing some work stuff so i am going to have to buck up. i have a weird thing i do where i put my swim suit and warm clothes and uggs right next to the bed before i go to sleep and in the a.m. i get dressed under the covers and sit there all dressed for a minute or two. it makes me feel less cold to not have to touch air before i am fully clothed. james doesn't get to see how funny it looks to accomplish this all under the covers because this is usually the point at which he is "taking care of business". when i hear a flush, i know its time to start getting my ass in gear.
i DO have a cute new TYR bikini with skulls on it and just bought some new pool toys including a pretty pink pull buoy, mini fins, and some paddles i don't know how to use...so at least i have the "new gear" prospect motivating me for tomorrow. don't you love that? isn't that first trot in the new pair of running shoes always the best? or when you have a hot new outfit for a race? do only girls get excited about this or do boys feel this way about new workout clothes too?
and here is the latest DeSoto ad in Inside Triathlon (march, p.34)....look...james is there! ...and no, it was not photoshopped. that is real jumping....
