Blister

April 2, 2008

I got a blister from running today. Blisters are caused by moisture which is caused by sweating which is a direct result of heat production. Which is a very, very good thing after such a terribly long winter. What I’m trying to say, is that it was…I can hardly type this I’m so excited…it was ABOVE FIFTY DEGREES TODAY!!! That’s right, I went running in shorts and a long sleeved t-shirt and I was WARM! – overdressed, even.
I came home from work and I opened the doors and left them open for the whole evening! Jack sat on the front steps and just stared at the world as it melted all around him. I think he’s secretly sad that the snow is melting because he loves to roll in it so much. Finn however, is thrilled at the new neighborhood snack bar, since all the animals that didn’t make it through the winter are now becoming unearthed. The world is a smorgasbord of tasty wilderness treats. Life couldn’t be better.

It was a rainy and foggy run today, and I loved every minute of it. My legs considered protesting but shut up when they realized I wasn’t listening. I am so ready to fold up my running tights and put them in a place where only hibernating winter clothes belong.

In other news, we have found a new wedding venue. We haven’t officially reserved it yet, but things are looking good. And we are moving right along with other things like tents and (oh god help me) what to wear. Apparently we have to decide this further in advance than one week prior to the wedding. Because apparently the guests need to know so they can base their own clothing choices on ours. My response: “the facts – outside, warm weather, a bonfire after the reception, and flipflops. You do the math.” I fear that if I do not find someone soon who appreciates my flippancy about this issue, I will be kicked out of my own wedding! It’s just always hard for me to get serious about clothes. Especially fancy ones. But these are the joys of having a wedding, so I am trying to get serious and I’m glad that I have GB to keep me sane. Which I think is the reason I’m getting married in the first place….hmmm. Anyway, I thought I would post the news that we have a wedding venue so all those of you who had near-hernias about our wedding locale being closed for business could relax again. I know you were so worked up you couldn’t sleep. Now you can again.

Sweet dreams.

    Excellent. Glad that the run went well – superb! Conditions were ideal, the kind that I dream of.

    As for the wedding – clothes are slightly overrated. I’m not saying people should arrive naked – that would be gross, awful, and yucky – but flip flops and bonfires sound most excellent. Again – it is YOUR and GB’s day. Everyone will be more than happy to be there for the two of you.

    Very happy to hear that things are coming together! Hooray!

    I love the casual dress code!!! You can get patent leather birkenstocks, you know…my sister would just cringe for me writing that.

    I didn’t get a blister yesterday, but Molly and I got so muddy running–meaning it had to be above 32 degrees. I think we were both giddy! And, she found a dead bird embedded in the mud in the middle of the road…no roaming eeven necessary!
