No time for anything...

I've been a little busy lately with all the Holiday madness coming up. With making homemade Christmas cards, baking cookies, decorating, shopping, work, etc, I have had little time to think straight. I don't know why I think I am Martha F-ing Stewart sometimes.

But all in all, I enjoy it. Plus, it keeps me from thinking too much about the whole "knee issue" that wont seem to go away.

I had a couple of three mile runs last week that were fine. Then I attempted a 6 mile run last Sunday and had to stop at 4 because I could feel my right knee acting up. Then I took a couple days off and tried again on Wednesday with the exact same results. Sigh.

Needless to say, tomorrow I wont be running the 10 miles I had hoped with my group while they do 16. Looks like it will be another Saturday on the bike. The thing that really sucks about this is that my holiday party is tonight on South Beach and I wont even be able to enjoy it because, once again, I have to get up at 4am to BIKE! Ugh. Does anyone know if it's hard to coast on a bike if you are hungover?

It's an extremely busy weekend that goes a little like this:

• Tonight - Holiday Party on South Beach

• Tomorrow morning, 4am - 16 mile bike ride with group

• Come home, pack

• Drive 4 hours to Sarasota

• 4pm - Hamish's (My friends new baby) naming ceremony (non religious christening basically)

• Afta party at the Roo (a great bar in Bradenton with a ton of imports)

• Sunday morning/afternoon - looking at houses in Sarasota (looking into buying a property)

• Dinner with parents and friends from Miami

• Monday morning, wake up at the crack of dawn to drive back down to Miami (4 hours) and go STRAIGHT to work.

Ugh, I'm exhausted just typing it!

I am however, super excited to meet my new Godson Hamish (or Hamster as I like to call him).

I also love looking at houses, so that should be fun too. Even if we don't know if we are going to buy anything.

Hopefully soon I will have a moment to stop and check up on all you guys to see how everything is going. Maybe I can even get a few miles in myself.

Have a great weekend!

Of all the sports, I think biking is the easiest to do w/ a hangover. It's suprising how quickly you'll sweat out the alcohol.

Wow you ARE a busy lady! This time of year is always insane with the holiday par-tays.

4am to bike? Ohhhh girl you're nuts ;-)

Oh my god! Look at that smile! So adorable!

I'm really sad to read about the knee, did you seek treatment??? I like to be pro-active in those situations but that'S just me. After getting treatment on my right foot for plantar fasciiatis and feeling better the left foot is acting up :S It's one thing after the other!! lol

I am looking forward to some beach time in Miami =)

Have a fun week-end!

oooh - i love looking at houses too! you are busy ... its ok to not be martha stewart. although i should definitely take my own advice on that one - especially this time of year! take care of yourself ... sorry to hear you are still dealing with knee issues. and i think biking while hungover is totally do-able.

You are very busy -- you must be popular! Have fun with "Hamster" and the house hunt.

I hate how busy this time of the year is, too, but I feel better knowing that I'm spending quality time with my family and friends. That makes the craziness worth it, I think.

I tagged you in a meme on my blog (, which I now realize adds to your business. Sorry about that.

Merry Christmas,

Sheesh. "Tis the season" - to eat too much, drink too much and spend to much money!

That baby is the cutest little thing!!
