Big Fat Liar

After sleeping for a blissful 12 hours and 45 minutes last night, I awoke at 10:45 AM to find that the outside temperature was a mere 36 degrees. And while that isn't quite freezing, it is a long way from the 51 degrees that the weatherman had predicted.


I decided to give it a few more hours to see if it would warm up any. By 3:00, it had climbed to a whopping 39 degrees.

So, I decided that wasn't warm enough for me to brave the rain, so I ran on the treadmill instead. Where I managed to actually run all 4 miles today!

Woo Hoo!

I also learned a very valuable lesson: Running and crying aren't a good combo!

While I was running, I was watching Save the Last Dance. I bet I have literally seen that movie 25 or 30 times by now, but it still reduces me to tears in several spots. Like after the ballet, when Sara is talking about giving up dancing because of her mom's death. And when her dad shows Sara her room all done and tells her he loves her. And when Derek goes on stage during her audition and tells her that she was born to [dance]. I kept having to hold back my tears in order to keep running or I knew I was going to start having a hard time breathing and have to quit.

I just love that movie! I guess the determination that Sara shows for her dancing is the same kind of determination it takes to train for a long race. Plus it's just an emotional, touching coming of age type story.

I highly recommend it to any females out there who haven't see it. All of you guys would probably just roll your eyes and call it a stupid chick flick!


  1. Very pretty shoes!

    I love that movie too! I am currently watching "How to Lose A Guy in 10 Days"! Love it!

  2. Very pretty good.

    Great job on the run!

  3. Ohhhh, shoes!

    And 12 hours of sleep?! I envy you!

  4. 4 miles on the treadmill!?!?! WOW, bravo!!!!!!
    Not sure which I envy more--the shoes or the sleep...ok, it's the sleep:-)
