"I have faith in you. There is no one you cannot piss off."

Dudes, I have had a busy week with things to do, for people if not for money. It's been very exciting. I had to bake cream puffs and brownies and then I had to eat them...which is taxing...and then I got to babysit for a sickypoo baby who was actually in the best mood I have ever seen him ever and today we are picking up more trees for our orchard. I haven't had such a busy week in a LONG while and it feels almost like being human. I have a weekend of physical labor to look forward to, planting and other gardening duties. It's kind of awesome.

My running is coming along great. The icyhot really helps my knees and the snowshoeing kept my muscles in awesome shape because there has been no warming up curve at all. I'm kind of amazed. I have to admit it feels better than I ever would have thought to work the muscles that way. I have a strong memory of running till I felt like I would die, 3 minutes or so, and now I hardly ever feel like I'm going to die at all. Progress is a beautiful thing!

Congrats on seeing progress with your runs! I remember when I realized that those killer 5-7 minute jogs were now coming to me so much more easily. It's then that you can really see how far you've come and how much you (and your body) have changed.

Keep it up!

Oh please. I'm supposed to feel sympathy here? Next you'll be complaining that you don't have lithe nubile tanned pool boys to drop peeled grapes into your mouth and fan you with palm leaves. We're talking cream puffs and brownies here, woman!

Okay, so I'm still not strong on the sympathy vibe, but I must confess to a strong feeling of congratulatory envy. That must be awesome to feel like that. Plus, it helps assuage any residual guilt that might have lingered from the cream puffs ;)

Merry completely neglected the part where I said I was taxed...I'm going to buy me a fainting couch and lay on your lawn till you see fir to apologize. or until I get hungry.

wow, i can't type at all can i...no wonder i'm a blogger who wears pajamas all day.

Not sure a fainting couch is allowed 'round these parts. How 'bout a fainting goat instead?

And all right, I will try to imagine how taxing it must be to force yourself to eat cream puffs :)

I am still impressed with the running thing though.

Um... do I want to ask why you're tweeting to PastaQueen about sending her tasty, tasty brains?
