So little M comes running up to me last night from the living room yelling "Mommy, Mommy!" Very excited, like fire engine across the street exited. She grabs my hand and drags me into the living room intent on showing me this great surprise.

There's Simba the cat, leg in the air, licking himself.

"Simba's eating his butt!"

The beauty of two year olds is that they see the world in a whole new way. Simba was not impressed.

One of my coworkers suggested that we all go down to The Ramp (a restaurant/bar on a dock next to the bay) and drink. This was at about 9:15 this morning. And really it does sound better than what I had planned for the rest of the day, because really as things are going, I might as well go to The Ramp and just get sloshed.

So I got passed up again for a promotion here at The Big One. Not because I don’t have the experience or the talent but probably, mostly, because I'm not the boss's best buddy. Not that I don’t like her, I do, but we just don't mesh. What burns me is that she promoted a gal with far less experience. She looooves this girl and thinks she's brilliant. She's not - she just knows how to parrot back stuff she's heard from her superiors. Whatever. She'll have to manage a group of guys (all guys) who don't like her already. Good luck girlie!

Oh, and she has no management experience.

Oh gosh, I haven't posted in a month...bad me!

Well, I've been totally well and now we're sick again! Seems I only post when I'm sick. Work is stupid. The kids are great! Little N is growing up so quickly and is just a happy little 15 month bundle of joy. Big M is almost 3 and full of energy, ideas and mischief.

As for training...well, my hip has been bothering me. So I've been swimming almost exclusively. I did some pretty intense yoga yesterday and that seemed to help my hip a lot! I think that the hip tightness is actually related to lower back tightness too. You know, leg bone connected to the backbone...etc. etc.
