Oh, Carolina

My Memorial Day weekend was spent getting soaking wet.  This would've been fine if I'd been at the beach or maybe a water park, but when you're camped out at Lowe's Motor Speedway, this is NOT the way to go.

Rain and miserable half-run race aside, it was a great long weekend.  I got to catch up with my friends that I haven't seen since we went to Darlington a couple of years ago and meet their new pooch, Jenny.

Jenifa, oh Jenny

The got her from a hound rescue organization because she'd been severely abused by her former owner (apparently, a police officer, no less – don't get me started on my rant about what should happen to people who abuse animals and children).  She bonded with my friend R pretty quickly but she's terrified of strangers and men.  She's got a great personality when she forgets that she's not scared half to death.  I have faith that my friends will spoil her rotten as she gets used to the rest of the zoo (they have one other dog and three cats – my Claritin had its work cut out for it last weekend).

The rest of my (un-blogged) May has been pretty busy with camping trips (Harrisburg & Crystal Coast, with another one coming up tomorrow outside of Pittsburgh).  I don't think my poor little tent is going to last through August, but we'll see what happens.  If I have to replace it, so be it.  It's been about five years – I could stand an upgrade.

I managed to break my toe almost a month ago, which kept me away from the gym for a couple of weeks.  Laziness took over after that.  Unfortunately, I'm starting to feel it, so it's time to override the laziness and get back in the saddle.  The last thing I want to do is backslide to the point where my doctor has to bring up the dreaded Metformin again.  I managed to do some time last night, but tonight's going to be a bit trickier.

My intro photography class ended this week and I immediately signed up for the next class taught by the same woman.  Of course, I was so eager to get in her class that I completely neglected to actually look at the schedule and realize that I'm going to miss THREE of the eight classes in the session.   Good job, me.  I continue to go back and forth on whether or not it's been worth the money, but I'm enjoying myself, so there's always that.
