Um, I made Bud sick. He was a good man, and went to the doctor immediately and got some antibiotics and should feel better soon. I assured him last week that there was no way I would get him sick, and made a promise that if I did, I would be his "love ***" (I was a bit more earthy than that) for life.
Crap. He now delights in reminding me of that promise, and says he is going to hold me to it. He's already making plans for when we are both feeling better. Well, I guess things will be exciting for the next 30 years. Trust me--he will not ever forget I made that promise. Ever. We'll be in our 80's and he will remind me.
This week I found out Jeff Galloway, running expert, is coming to our store for a discussion and book signing on May 6th! I am so excited to meet him and hear him talk about the run-walk method he uses to complete marathons and teach so many others to do it, usually with PR's. I have been tasked to spread the word in town, and I hope we have a fantastic crowd. I told Bud he has to come and listen to Jeff. Bud is a believer in running without any walking no matter what. I hope listening to Jeff will help him understand this other method, too.
It's another new month for reading. So many great books are coming out in May, my head is spinning. I have some advanced reading copies to read this month, since the books are coming out in May and I need to get some reviews posted. I can't wait til May, when I can sit out on my front porch and read. It's such a great feeling. Last year I didn't do it too much, so I am definitely going to sit out there more this summer.
One last thing--I am planning a trip to Savannah, GA in November with two of my sisters. I am so excited I don't know how I will make it through the next 7 months! Let's just say it's been a dream of mine since my teen years to go to Savannah, and I am so happy I get to go with Pam and Patti. We haven't been on a vacation together since the late 70's when we were kids. We've got our tickets, hotel room, and trolley tour all booked for now. There will be more on that later.
Must get ready for work today. It figures, today it will be sunny and 54 while I work all day, and on my day off it's gonna rain and be cool. Pooh. I guess that means no excuse not to go to the gym :)
