Randoms for a blah Wednesday

Woke up today feeling crappy so I stayed home from work. I think my regular fall cold is settling in. I've been blowing my nose all day. Tried to do some work from home, but just wasn't feeling it so I logged off and started a Glee marathon. Was doing alright until the cat decided that she wanted some love so she crawled up in my lap. Now, I smell like cat ass. Awesome.

Just finished the second season on Downton Abbey last night. I need to find a new series to watch until the third season is available. We don't have cable so we pretty much watch everything on Netflix or Hulu+. Much cheaper than paying for 100 channels I don't watch. Oh, and I have to ask your opinion for those who have seen Downton Abbey. Is there a resemblance between Edith and my Cordie or am I just crazy? It freaks me out every episode. Both second daughters too, eerie.

Not much else going on today. I did have a call with Paige's teacher as she is going to be tested for the gifted program at school. I have no doubt that she'll pass with flying colors. I have some crazy talented artists in my family and she was lucky enough to get that gene. Sadly, it missed me. My uncle very generously gave me this painting that he did and it now hangs in our dining room. He knows I like orange. Here is more of his art if you want to check it out.

I really should get off my ass and go for a run. It is gorgeous outside and I'll actually be able to run in daylight! I have been working the treadmill since it has started getting dark earlier now. With our 45 min.- hour commute each morning and afternoon, those daylight hours are really cut into when it comes to workouts. Plus, the last time I ran at night, I got chased by a dog. Okay, not chased exactly, he stood on the other side of the road and barked at me. I walked past until he decided I was no longer a threat. Stupid white trash neighbors. So, I'll leave you with this gorgeous pic of me in my super coordinated running outfit. Please ignore the missing trim from the wall. That's a whole other post.

Anyone else feeling blah today?
