Is it Friday yet????

Boy am I ready for this week to be over and it has only just begun.  I have a terrible headache and I left the motrin at the house.  Now that doesn't help me out at all.

I have to get the girls some Christmas presents this week and since we have low funds, this is going to be a huge challenge, that I think I'm going to win.  I already have a couple of things in mind and since I get paid Wednesday, I think I'm going to be hitting up Target on my lunch break to see what I can find.  And since the hubs doesn't read this blog, I'm getting him a cappucino machine.  He asked me recently how much did I think they cost, so I did some research on them and you can get a basic one for around $40 (Black and Decker baby).  I think he will be happy with it.

The girls are getting gift certificates for some clothes from my mom, so I'm thinking I'm going to get them books, puzzles, coloring books, things of that nature.  Since they get a lot of toys from grandparents and aunts/uncles, I don't feel the need to buy a lot of toys.  I think they will be happy with whatever I can get them without going to broke, wait we are already broke.

As for running this morning, I don't know how you northern folks do it.  It's like 30 something degrees in Georgia and I'm freezing just thinking about getting out in that mess.  So I didn't leave the security of my warm bed to attempt a 3 mile run.  I'm planning on doing it this evening and then enjoying a warm beverage after a HOT shower.

Let's hope that since the weather is suppose to get back up into the high 50's/low 60's by Wednesday, that I'll be able to make it out doors to run my speed work and hopefully on the track at the high school.  We shall see.

Alrighty, I have a huge project I'm suppose to be working on, I just can't seem to get the numbers to add up and it's frustrating.  I'm going to get back to it.
