- I'm still fretting about my wardrobe for Sunday. Thanks to EVERYONE for all the advice and opinions about what to wear. It looks to be even colder than originally reported...in the 30's at gun time...maybe 50's by race end. Still freekin' cold in my book!
- My house STILL smells like skunk in places. I cannot begin to tell you all of the strategies we've used to get rid of the skunk smell...We've sprayed vinegar around and under the house several times, changed the A/C & heater filters five times, spread coffee grounds under the house (this seems to work best, or at least it masks the smell best). We've stripped and caulked all openings so that errant drafts cannot enter the house, and still, I can smell the aroma of the blessed beast in various places...GAH! On Tuesday, the smell in our bedroom was so bad that I couldn't take it any more, and we moved our bed out of our bedroom and into the office, where we've slept all week. We've shampood the carpet and are in the process of moving things back, but still...WHEN WILL IT END? I think I should leave town...oh and did I mention that we're hosting the annual family Hannukah dinner next Friday. Maybe a week of cooking things in oil will rid the house of skunk-smell...
- Even though I'm completely unprepared for this upcoming Las Vegas 1/2 Mary, I haven't forgotten about doing a Tri and I think I found a perfect one...and even better, I think I have several of the herd interested in doing it with me. IronGirl has announced it's 2010 season and has a sprint-tri (800m swim/30k bike/5K run) at Lake Las Vegas in May. Good things about the tri? It's a sprint, so it's doable. It's in May, which gives us time to prepare. And best of all? The swim portion is in a Lake, a manmade one at that, so there are no sharks! Emails among the herd circulated today and I'm pretty sure Clarence and Alberta are IN!

Three Things -- Cold, Smell, Tri
A few of you are doing Three Things Thursday and I LOVE this idea! I can do a mid-week blog entry about three things
