So now this is totally blabbering about nothing of great importance (or that makes sense...even to me) AND I'm on a borrowed computer at this moment since I am in Studio B. And now the owner of this computer is ready to use it again, so if this is the last time you hear from me, you'll know that I didn't survive this torture....

Oh wait, I remembered where I was going, I think I just lost my way getting there. (that happens when you get old -- the forgetting thing -- I'm 23 now you know). Anyways, I walked a mile today, only Leanna couldn't go, so I talked my mother into walking with me. And role reversal...I was Leanna....mom was me. Poor Leanna has to slow down for me, I had to slow down for mom. Ah well, at least we got outside.
Must get back to work now...or I'll be like those people I complain about that don't do any work around here.....LOL. Kidding...only kidding.

Anyways, so I'm still in recovery from my run with Leanna at lunch today. She nearly killed me today. I don't know what happened, we only ran a mile and a half and walked another mile. Maybe its because we did it in 35 minutes. Or maybe because it was warmer today than Friday. Or maybe it was both....all I know is it took forever for me to get oxygen back in my lungs properly and I still feel somewhat handicapped in that area. *deep breath* Ahhhh....but it was nice to get outside. Today we went around the lake and up and around the back of the foundation...so a little different scenery and a few extra hills. I WILL (someday) be able to run a mile without stopping to pass out. That is my goal. That shouldn't be hard...right?
Yeah, that's me. KC can't handle me not being in at least a few pictures. I don't know why, I can handle it just fine!
We had a good time on Saturday, driving around, taking pictures, etc. It was nice to be able to spend some "quality" time together...seriously. =)
A canadian goose on the lake. I love my 70-300mm lens! What a beauty close up!
These were taken on the campus of *a college*....some at the lake, and some on the steps behind the Administration building. These are just a few of the ones I got. I'll upload some more scenery ones later and take KC and myself out whenever I get the other ones edited and resized for the web.

This is a cool old house off of Hwy 64 that I drive by every day on my way to and from work. Every time I drive by I wonder who lived there and in my imagination, I try to picture it seventy or eighty years ago. Maybe when the road in front of it was just gravel, or an old one lane asphalt drive, and the windows still had all the panes in them. Who lived there? Was it a young woman like me, still pretty much a newlywed, were there kids sleeping in the loft? What was it like when the yard was being tended and the vines grown up around it now weren't there? What stories does that old house hold? We drive by now, at a glance, would you think someone had ever lived there? Today, we'd look at it and think, "no way, thats too small" but we're so spoiled. Maybe they were richer than we think!

Oh, and something else thats really sad (besides how out of shape I am) is that I'm losing my running partner. Leanna told me this morning that she's turned in her notice and her last day here is March 21st. So now that I'm getting moving, I'm going to have to find someone else. Very sad. I'll miss her. Speaking of work...I should get moving.

So my birthday started out pretty rough...I had to go get a vaccine for measles (MMR) and let me tell ya, that was kind of painful! Its no wonder babies cry. After that, my day could only get better, and it did. *smiles* Everyone here at work was very sweet, took me to lunch and everything. All in all, its been a good day. Here's to another year, may it be the best one yet.
