'Tis the Season

Sunday, December 18, 2005

As promised, here are photos from White Rock. This was the race that didn't end. Yes it went on and on my friends. Lass started running it not knowing that it would continue on forever and forever and forever... Well, I lost the rhyme, but you get the idea. Me and my little sis and my mom. My sis navigated Nick around. She did a great job according to Nick. And my mom ran a couple of miles with me when the going got tough. Helped me up the last big climb before the final 10K of the race.
Nick, as always, was a doll. He and my mom and my sister were at all the 'points' I highlighted for them. Between points they stopped by Target (hey! no fair shopping there without me!) and made me some inspirational signage. As you can see, for Christmas I need some lessons in Photoshopping techniques along with a Photoshop license. OK, so image editing isn't my forte. :P This weekend was busy! I slept in on Saturday, then took the kids to breakfast. Elle had a birthday part from 1-3, so I took that time to go shoe shopping. Nick and Zed hung out and did guy stuff while I sipped coffee at Starbucks and did the crossword. Then Elle and I went to the autoparts shop where I couldn't figure out how for the life of me to get the headlight out on my Jetta. So, I got the tail light like I knew I could. When Nick got back, I had him look at it. Turns out the genious engineers at Volkswagen want you to take your car to the dealership to get your head lamp replaced! We had to take the battery out of the car! And not just the battery, but we had to figure out how to get the battery out of it's Fort Knox-esque casing and unbolted from the battery platform! Even then it was tricky getting the headlamp out. Then off to the autoparts store to find a match. We also noticed that my other tail light had gone out since I last looked, so we had to get a spare of that as well. Let's just say it was dark by the time we got my car put back together! Again. I am thankful for a handy-dandy fiancee like Nick! He looked super-sexy with grime all over his hands and shirt! ;) We finally got the lights up on the house today. Nick did the aerial work while I focused on the terrestrial aspect. I think we did quite well, don't you?
