Wednesday Morning

I thought since I don't have anything much to say this morning I would post this video. It is old, but I love this song. In 2001, I was dating a cowboy and started listening to country music (because it reminded me of him and made me happy) - when I heard this song for the first time, I had to pull off the road to cry.

I spilled my tea all over the conference table yesterday during my presentation. Thankfully, it was jasmine tea, so it smelled good, imagine if it had been hot chocolate! I ran out of the room to get paper towels to mop up... I was able to make a joke about it and everyone laughed, and then we got back to the presentation. Aside from that, it went well.... (Other than that Mrs. Lincoln, how did you like the play?)

I am out of here to the gym. Okay, here is a question... I am participating in a Nike + challenge. It is for women 55 and older. I am running neck and neck (for first place) with another woman. Yesterday I posted that I was so glad I am competing against women 55 +. She posted that she is actually 47. That annoys the hell out of me. Maybe I should participate (and come in first) in a challenge for 63 and older women? Petty? Who? Me?

Why would she do something like that and lie about her age? I'm lost .. maybe I need more coffee.

I don't know if I would of laughed or cried with the green tea spill. Probably both but I'm glad it eased the tension so to speak.

Hope you have a great day.

that would annoy the hell out of me too girl!!!
I think the green tea incident was probably something people could talk about afterward, and add a little interest to their lives.

The 47 year old doesn't qualify and you should bust her ass.

How the hell can that slut get into the wrong age group? You should spill some tea on her!!

I'm with JJ! Why would she lie about her age? Compete in her own division! GEEZE!

I love your attitude about spilling your tea, shit happens and sometimes we are ok with it and it sounds like you are.

Have an excellent day

WagonRider sings that song to me whenever it is on the radio.

He's sort of mushy that way.

I totally agree with dAAve and Scott W. Maybe spilling hot chocolate will correct her age!

The dishonesty about age is a tough one. Looks like a perfect opportunity to work your own program, and let her work hers (which it doesn't appear that she is).

I love love love your honesty!! Why would she run in an age group other than her own? Sometimes we get to see examples of how we don't want to be,huh?

Did you beat yourself up after the presentation? I would have burned for a bit--- Not long ago I was at a meeting with a woman speaker and she spilled coffee down her front. She was awesome--she told us how she would have felt and handled the situation early in recovery and how trivial it wa now. I love honest feelings.
