A hearty congrats to Colegate whose Fitness blog (yes, this is a shameless plug for her blog. Read it.) attracted the attention of a book publisher. She is going to receive an advanced copy of a fitness book as a sign of their appreciation for her previous good reviews.
All I ever got for my blog was 100 bucks… and I had to ask for it.
Dear Stouffers, Hostess, Target, Performance Bike, Cover girl, the makers of padded bike shorts, Jennifer Lopez, Hilbertos, & SeaWorld,
Where is my free stuff?!?!
Thursday, Mom, Pops, Casey, Mike-E, Lindsey, John-E, Chris, and I went downtown to have dinner at the Field and then to see The Phantom of the Opera. Dinner was great – especially since Mike paid. Free stuff is ALWAYS better. Phantom was good, a little different than usual but still good.
I think I too often forget that time spent with the fam is the most fun I have. Dad drove the suburban so all 8 of us piled in for the ride. Not 10 minutes into the trek, John and Mike started launching into the intercessional Hail Mary prayer (dad tends to drive a little ‘aggressive’) and maybe it would have helped… if we were Catholic. We arrived and returned safely… but not without a lot of laughter.
I’m going to be out next week. I have a bit of an unexpected trip up to Northern Cali. Hubby’s fam is getting together for a reunion. Speaking of necessities for Hail Mary’s…or Bloody Mary’s… or both…
