Looking at that picture of me from the last post makes me sad... of course sad that I didn't finish the race, but sad that it had gotten to the point where I could barely keep my eyes open. I don't know that I've felt that miserable in a long time. Hopefully that was a one and done kind of thing.
This is literally one of my favorite weeks of the year. Our little town has a great county fair that runs all week. It's big doings let me tell you. They have harness racing each day, culminating with the Jugette on Wednesday and the Little Brown Jug on Thursday which is the race of all races. :) Tom and I always go at least one day to the fair, walk through all of the barn buildings (4-H is HUGE in Delaware County so the kids show their animals all week), bet on some horses (usually mine is always 4th so I never win anything), eat at least one piece of fair food (there's something about deep fried food from a cart), watch all the brave people encounter the mobile rides (which I will NEVER put my life on the line to try) and just enjoy that this is our hometown. We're hitting it up tomorrow with some friends for the Jugette. We're gonna get our betting on... (aka, I'll catch up and gossip with Jill while Tom and Sam spend some money). It's great.
Then it's Tom's birthday on Friday so we're going on a little date on Thursday. I got him tickets to see Sugarland on Thursday night. We both love Sugarland so it should be fun. Plus it's my husband's first concert in 35 years (he always corrects me and tells me that he's seen Pavarotti live, but really... you're 35. That doesn't count!)
Tom leaves Saturday morning for Waterloo, Iowa to race at the Peregrine Charities Tri and I'm racing a half IM on Sunday here in Ohio. I'm getting nervous for it... I have some goals that I would like to hit and I'm worried that I'm not where I should be to hit those goals. Only time will tell...
And after my race - my butt will be planted firmly on the couch watching all the shows that I DVRed this week... Glee, Biggest Loser, Office, Community, Modern Family, Outsources, My Generation, and Sister Wives. Love it!
