It's official. I have internet capabilities in my house. I cannot believe it! After trying to persuade my neighbor's to fix their router for the last month, a brief flirtation with century link, I broke down, called Cox, and yes, I have internet at home.
Originally, I was annoyed by the price of the modem and thought century link would be the preferred route until I actually tried to establish service. What a joke! They sent a technician a week before I was to receive my modem. After calling them three separate occasions to figure out where the modem was, I decided to cancel the service. I foresaw the future of that relationship. Me, being annoyed with waiting, waiting, waiting.
Regardless, I have no further reason to not be blogging. Or catching up on Glee episodes. Finally got the M J/Jackson 5 love. What a great rendition of some of his best work. Excellent. Excited about the rest of the season. Up til this point, I was a little disappointed probably since I catch the episodes a week late and I have been distracted. I like the addition of characters (glee project contestants) and return of Sam. I am inspired from the recent episode.
In other news, I am still semi-uncertain on how I will be celebrating christmas. Last year, I had a lovely weekend in Key West and this year, sort of waited to see how things would play out. I considered spending time with friends in Phoenix but believe, I will either venture south to Mexico or north to Sedona.
I miss the idea of Key West or Australia. A beach is tranquil and soothing. Gives me the opportunity to reflect on the last year and the upcoming one. Why wouldn't I seek this out?
I am considering half marathons and a full for 2012. Hoping to convince the Goddess, Sara Jo and Megan to meet up and run another wine race. Santa Barbara would be delightful or perhaps, Oregon. That way, I would be able to see my sisters, too. Megan would like to sign up for the half in Virginia and I am not discounting that. I am a little concerned about the humidity factor in June.
It is so nice to be able to linger while blogging and not have to be concerned if I am taking up a table at Starbuck's. Having wi-fi is heavenly. Very happy.
I am waiting to hear back from the organizers of the las vegas half. I e-mailed them after they provided a way to reach out about the experience of the 2011 event. I mentioned my frustrations as a half marathon participant and noted, that I had run the 2010 full marathon course as well. Although there were some issues with that route, it was preferable to what I watched this year. I am hoping that they considered my perspective. I believe they are overwhelmed with the amount of responses received. There has been a lot of negative press on that particular event. I do not envy them. I think they learned a lot about managing a large event in that race.
I attempted to write christmas cards today, too. Prior to having internet at home again. Now, I am delayed due to the joy of blogging. Hoping to resume xmas cards and have them out by 2012. Too much to do and not enough time. I wanted to include photos for some friends of this past year. I spent a lot of time in Oregon, Colorado and Mexico. I would like to share visiuals with some of those people. Maybe next year. Perhaps a resolution.
Have a lovely day. I need to conclude this for now....
