I'm Still Here

Sunday, March 25, 2012

Just been very busy. Lots of stuff to do at work. I've been keeping up with my running and doing Jari Love strength training DVDs.
I took last Friday off and so did my husband. We didn't get a chance to relax together last weekend for our anniversary so we did so on Friday. Nice brunch out and Godzilla on Blu-Ray in the afternoon...Japanese subtitled version.
Yesterday the SVSM had it's kick off classic model contest. I worked at the registration desk so I didn't get a chance to see very many of the models on display. We had a pretty big turnout...450 models in the contest. My husband even won a few awards :-) Sorry, no pictures of the great cars, tanks, ships and planes. I do have a picture of the chocolate mint chip cookies I brought for us to snack on:

I got out for a long run today of 4.5 miles. It felt good.
Laundry is done, groceries are shopped for, vacuuming done....ready to start the week again.

    Sounds like things are going well! Congrats to your hubby on his awards!!! Those cookies look fabulous!!! I am a firm believer that cookies give a person superpowers (at least that's what I tell myself when I eat them! haha!)


Keep up the great work - I'm envious of your runs! I'd love to have the time to get out for a long run sometime soon!!! I brought my running shoes to work today...maybe I'll be able to knock out a few miles while I'm here!

    Hi Nat,

As a modeler I want specifics. What awards did your husband win?

My kids and I love the campy old Japanese monster flicks. One of our favorites is King Kong versus Godzilla. This is a truly terrible movie that is so bad it is actually good!

Yay, for the 4.5 miles!

Tell your husband that I sent away to a hobby shop in Poland to get several RPM 1/35 scale Renault FT-17 kits. I also bought photo-etch external detail parts and resin/photo-etch interior parts for the RPM kits. I even got resin engines for the kits. I got track kits with individual links, which are far better than the rubber tracks provided in the kits. It took a while to get all this stuff from Poland but the kits are beautiful.

Thanks, Bruce
