Hallelujah . . .



. . . who knocks on my door while I'm trying to bang out my 16 miler this morning?

My.  new.  best.  friend.  Mr "TNT" [NZ company] delivery guy.

Giving
me
this
back.


My L i f e!  [I know, I know, it's a sad, sad life].  so. completely. happy.

So after retrieving 16 [no joke] voicemail from [ALL boys] for Peanut.  yikes.  I started up the treadmill to finish my run.  Seriously, long runs go so much faster when you text and run.  [I'm sure this is doing really bad things for whatever "form" I have].

whatever.

I have my phone back!  Who freaking cares!

So I finished this.

Yippee!

Then, I got back to my phone.  We have photos people - - photos!

That you want to see!

Like the sweet ride we had the whole time we were there. [please remember the Pita is 6'8" without shoes].

awesome.
It was like a go-cart on wheels.  Yes, dad it got great gas mileage.

And this seriously had me rolling on the 2X2" floor of the car.

Made Pita pull over & stop the go-cart for this one.  The pita:  Em, they are just pink sheep.  Me:  just pink sheep?!? Like that's normal [tears of laughter flow].

This was sad but noteworthy.

Where the last episode of the Bachelor was filmed.  The "eagles Nest".   
Pretty sweet place.

There is just no explanation for this.

We saw 8 total while driving.  Yep, pig skins.  So.  Gross.
You know only a man would do that.  I have pig skins - hear me roar!  oink.  oink.

The trash can I loved.

I was a tidy kiwi spouse.

Well, that's all I'll bore you with today my friends.  Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

I'm beginning my countdown to this.

I.  Can't.  Wait!

Hey, just came across your blog today, great read! Wanted to comment because I saw your 16.25 treadmill run....I just did my longest treadmill run yesterday, at 12 miles. I'm very thankful for cable tv!!

oh thank goddess you got your iphone back. how did you keep sane while not having it all these days? Pink sheep...totally worth stopping for anyday. Pig skins...what the heck do they use that for? American footballs?
How cool, a 4th of July marathon!! I like that. You'd never find a marathon here in florida at this time of year. You'd be lucky to find a 10k!

The circle is closed. Order has been restored to the Universe. Geeky way to put that you gout your phone back but we all know I'm right.

+ Lord Of The Rings was filmed in NZ I'm just making a reference.

Some cool pics ... you don't see pink sheep everyday huh?

You must have been going crazy without the cell. I am a crackberry user and my entire like is contained on the little 8GB flash card inside it. I use like 6000 mins a month and another 3000 text messages ... life would come to a halt if ever lost!

Have a good weekend!

Glad you got your phone back. I'm confused though, are they real pink sheep? Or pretend sheep painted pink?

Petraruns said...

HAHA texting and running, rumor has it that I might have been known to play Guitar hero on the treadmill, its just a rumor, no actual witness to this. So I am denying it.

I want a pink sheep, I dont like for pink, just the looks and conversations I would get for just having one.

You doing the half or full mary? Good luck.

MCM Mama said...

So glad you got the phone back!

The pictures are awesome. Is there a story behind the pink sheep??
