When It Rains, It Pours

This has not been my week. So, instead of telling you how bad of a week I am having, I am going to focus on the things that make me smile...

I just bought my new running shoes to start my 5K training . They'll be here tomorrow! But, I haven't started training since it's been raining. As soon as the rain stops, I'll start. I promise. I was told at lunch that I couldn't do it. That's even more of a challenge.

Fred surprised me last night by telling me that he bought me the USF sweats from Victoria's Secret that I've been coveting for some time now. (he's not very good with secrets) He told me that it would keep me warm during my 5K, but I think I would burn up wearing all of that and running. I can't wait until they get here! I might never change clothes. Ok, I will because that would be gross.

Tonight is Thursday; so, that means "Big Brother" and Buffalo Wild Wings at my house! Is it sad that I look forward to this each week?

We're expecting...a new truck that is! Fred has been truck shopping over the past few months and I think he's found a new baby. It should be here within another day or so. Fred's current truck is a 1995 teal Chevy Silverado. It's awful and I won't shed a tear when it's gone. I call it the "Green Machine". But, thank goodness for the Cash for Clunkers deal going on. That's saving us a ton!

Knowing that Fred will have a new truck soon, I decided to buy him a nice University of Tennessee Alumni license plate frame. Do you like?

On a serious note, please say a little prayer for my friend, Jenette. She delivered a baby boy yesterday at 29 weeks. The baby is currently in the NICU and he only weighs 3lbs.14.6oz. The baby does not have a name yet. Mother and baby are thought to be doing well. Her husband recently lost his job and she's a stay-at-home mom.

I'm hoping when the rain leaves, my funk will go away. I function much better with sunshine and warm weather. :)

please let your friend know that I am praying for her and her new baby boy. I know exactly how she is feeling - Addison was born at 25 weeks. NICUs are an amazing place with even more amazing nurses and doctors. Please keep me updated - and let me know if I can do anything for them.
