6.2 miles with 4 @ MP, it was a really good run! I followed it with 20 minutes of upper body weights and sit-ups
. I worked way too much on yesterday's chicken tanginess to cook tonight
, so dinner will be leftovers. Blather: Just found out that a friend I haven't seen since senior year of high school, she was an AFS student from the Netherlands, will be in town on Monday! I knew she was coming, but didn't know the details. We've stayed in touch via letters, then email, for 30 years. Our kids are similar ages. So funny, she was a Dutch exchange student who was into hard rock, dressed in motorcycle leathers and skin tight pants, and she was placed at an all girls private school in Buffalo.
We spent a lot of time together my senior year, it will be good to see her! Stuff in general: Just got one estimate for the removal of old knob and tube wiring from our house- $15,100.
We won't be going with that company.
On Monday, we have someone coming to scan our property for an underground oil tank, which may or may not be there. We never used oil, and there was a natural gas furnace here when we moved in. But we can't sell the house if there's an oil tank on the property, so even though we have no reason to believe there ever was one, we have to pay $250 just to see if there is.
This house is killing me.
Bonus: 1. DEER. Car-totaling asshats.
2. Spiders. They seriously creep me out. 3. Anything with rabies. A few streets over from me, a fox ran toward some kids in broad daylight, and a woman ran out and put herself between the kids and the fox. The fox bit into the woman's leg and wouldn't let go. Some guys heard her screaming, came to help, and literally had to beat the fox off her. But the fox ran off, they didn't kill it, so we don't know for sure if it rabies. The woman did go get the rabies shots though. Scary stuff. But I basically hate any critter that bites me or craps in my house.
