Brrr...

... it's cold! Last night there were crazy high winds and (with the wind chill) it was like -15 degrees, or something crazy like that. The winds caused my electricity to go out for a little while and my car doors were frozen shut. I HATE not having a garage!!!!! I was so spoiled before and now I HATE brushing snow, scraping ice and fighting to get the door open. Grrr... why can't it be spring yet?

Anyway, I skipped my workout tonight. I had a meeting tonight after work (yeah, I'm one of those "joiners" who get involved and decide it's a good idea to be a part of committees) that finished around 7:30p.m. Now, if you've had on CNN lately you'll know all about the Detroit mayor scandal. Technically, he's not my mayor since I'm a 'burbs girl, but I'm still proud to be from the "D". Tonight he had his apology on live TV and we turned it on after our meeting. One perk in my industry, there's always a TV close by. Not that I had high expectations, but it was worse than I thought. His wife was by his side and even spoke to the city. Good grief - no signs of a big apology diamond on her finger, but I'm sure it took some major persuasion for her to be there.

By the time I got home, it was after 8 p.m. and I was hungry. The snack in my bag wasn't going to sustain me through a workout, so I declared it a rest day and went home. I'm getting fearful for the 5k -- the weather, not the actual race. Last year it was 5-degrees and I'm going to bet this year is going to give it a run for its money. What was I thinking? Oh well, it'll be fun and it got me moving again.

Better get going to I can get ready for tomorrow. Geez... is it the weekend yet?

Brrr... you're right. That is cold! I think I'd not go to the race. Then again, cold here is 25-30 degrees. Wow.
