Here's my numbers:

*15 - hours Peanut slept last night.
*23 - number of possums [dead] I counted during my runs.
*1 - number of bulls that charged me while running.
*1 - amount of times I think I peed my pants from the charging bull
*1-Weka's that bit at my shoe thinking I was trying to steal her off-spring.
*14-number of dolphins we counted while on our "hole in the rock" tour in Russel.


*14-number of laps you have to run to equal 12 miles in Russel.


*7-number of times we ate fish & chips [uggggg]

which is partially why . . . .

Miles ran today 22 [20.47 on treadmill]  probably pretty stupid for the first day back at em'. [and no that's not tread-sweat it's from my Lysol wipes - yes, I'm a germaphobe]

*1-the iPhone that is mine that was left in NZ
*44,444,444 - the amount of times I have wanted to cry about it.

*8-how many days "Em, I'll get it off to you ASAP" means to the Pita's Sister.
*3-the number of 75+ year old women who watched me run my 800's by Poppy's house.
*444-how many times I thought "this is weird" that 75+ year old women are watching me run in circles.
*9-number of times the Pita asked if I'd move back to NZ.
*65-the age I told him I'd move back by.
*7-how many times Peanut asked if we could move there.
*1-how many times I barfed on our "hole in the rock tour"
*18-how many photos I have of rainbows [for you Amy!]
*4-times I was sad we didn't get to see uncle Rod. [or his undies]

I barf on boats too. I came out of the loo to catch a fish and then went back to the shitter to barf again and that was my last fishing trip!
Hope you had a great time!

so you would have been grossed out when my kid threw his hamburger on the ground at mcdonalds, and i picked it up and handed it right back to him? i dig germs. sorry about your phone. but just know that i have a phone that doesn't do anything but make phone calls, so consider yourself lucky. and what's up with the possums?

Aimee (I Tri To Be Me) said...

I think I would have cracked up passing the 75+ yr. old women over and over again! :)
Sorry about the iphone...what a bummer!
But, that's cool that you saw so many dolphins and rainbows! :)
