Praying, Running, and Cheering on the Cougs!

Praying: We are scheduled for Callie to be sealed to us on August 16. Hopefully that happens. We haven't received the proper paperwork in the mail from the court in Michigan stating that she is legally ours -- that the adoption is final. Until that comes, we can't be sealed. So we are praying we get that in time. Any prayers would be appreciated.

Running: This past weekend I was sick in bed. It was horrible. And since then I haven't really been able to run...not even 3 miles...without feeling nauseas. This is a problem because my 1/2 marathon is scheduled for this weekend. BUT, last night I ran 10 miles. I did it. And I did it in 2 hours. That is very encouraging because my goal was to do 13.1 miles in 2.5 hours. I can do it. I really think I can.

Cheering on the Cougs!: This morning Marcus, Samantha, Callie, and I walked down to watch the football team's only open practice. We were there an hour early to insure a good spot on the balcony. It was fun to watch them practice. It got me really excited for the Washington game, which we are going to. We also saw Jeremy Katzenbach, for those of you who remember him and Kelly, so it was fun to catch up with him and talk football the whole time. He is in a similar program as Marcus, so they chatted about that as well. While we were watching the practice, we were approached by someone and interviewed for BYUCougars.com. Ya know how after something happens, you think about what you said or did and how it could have been better? Yeah, well I've been doing that ever since. I feel like a moron. He asked me who some of my favorite players are, and the ONLY names I could think of were Max Hall and Harvey Unga because they were 2 of the players at the camp I went to. Come on! What about Collie and Vakapuna...2 of the ones I watched and followed the most last year. I just feel dumb. Anyway. He said it'll be up within a few days. If I don't look too much like a moron, maybe I'll post the link. (There are other things I said that make me look like a loser -- don't worry.) Anyway. Go Cougs!

10 MILES!! Jenny I will never be like you. I can't run more than 2 without feeling super drained. How do you do it? Seriously I want to know how you stayed determined enough to keep pushing yourself. You are amazing!

Prayers, yes, always! I know what you mean about the old mind going blank. One time Peggy and I went to see Baryisnikov dance. Lee dropped us off at the back of the theater and told us to wait for him there when it was over. The funny thing about this night (except for what I'm driving at which will come, never fear, I am nothing if not full of words) was that Peggy looked at me halfway through the evening, eyes intense--you know how they get--and said, "This is the best night of my life!" Not being married at the time, this did raise some questions in my mind. Anywho, when it was over, we were waiting in the back and this really cute John Denver looking guy came up to us and asked us where this one hotel was. Not only did I completely miss the fact that this was the second most famous guy in the ballet company (tho Peggy didn't--oh no, she was alive to that fact every second but she was, after all, married so she stayed quiet)I also gave him the totally wrong directions to said hotel. Was I ever remorseful and full of woe when I realized how dumb I was! The up side was that I wrote him a letter apologizing for my lack of brain power and he (or his publicist) sent me a signed 8X10 glossy. Maybe you could do the same with your football players . . .
