I was running on Monday, Wednesday, and Fridays. Then I get this idea, "hey why don't I try to wear these shoes to run? They are lighter."
My knees are totally jacked up now. I mean seriously. I was hobbling around like an old woman at work last night. I had this brilliant idea on Wednesday. I haven't been able to run since. I am going to go back out on Monday though. I don't want to give up. I am a day behind in the training now, but I am still gonna try, no big deal, what is one day? Early this morning I finally broke down and took some Tylenol. Whew, I felt so much better after that. I don't think carrying around my 40 lb son helped matters either. Ayman is into tantrums right now, and has to be physically moved from place to place on occasion. It's fun! Screaming toddler, in public! Everyone should have one. So, to sum up, stupid shoe choice, knees hurt, on injured list until Monday.
Guess who has an anniversary on Sunday?
Amr and I! Five years, 4 moves, 1 trip to Egypt together, 3 apart, an appendectomy (Amrs) Rotovirus (Aymans) 2 carthefts and 2 wallet thefts (mine) and, Two beautiful children. Time flies when you are having fun.
Amr and Cass, at Alex and Renees wedding, July 13th 2002.

It is too hot to do a darn thing over here. I am crazy. I'm cooking dinner. With a hot stove. Totally idiotic. Still running. Last week, four people in addition to myself had their hands in my mouth. I went to the dentist and the orthodontist. I am going all crazy over here with my dental insurance. Aside from that and a nursing home closing in my town, and causing a mass casualty disaster (one person died, you might have heard about it) due to no air conditioning, I have been laying low and trying to keep cool. Oh, and I found out I don't get to go back to school until January. What a bummer. It is probably for the best though, that is all folks. Gotta go get dinner on the table.

Kathy Griffins show is already over. I don't care what anyone says, I love that woman. It went so fast. At least I have Project Runway. I love Tim Gunn. Actually, I didn't care for Santinos designs last season, but his Tim impressions were dead on and hilarious. What about that weirdo, Malan Breton on the new season? He is strange. I don't know what it is about him. And don't even get me started with Mr.Hooded-Sweat-Shirt-I-Am-Too-Cool-For-This-Shit- Jeffrey Sebilia. That guy gave garbage as a first offering.
I love Bravo.
I love Bravo.

Today was the first day of my two month starting to run program. I nursed the baby at around five, was done by 0515, got out to run walk and was home by 0550. Lemme tell ya, it was 73 degrees outside when I left for my little odyssey, and it was 80 degrees in my house. You have never seen anyone get in the shower quicker. By seven am I will have to turn on the AC. But it is all good if my ass ends up a little less fat. By the end of this two months I should be able to run 3 miles. Thank you to the wiki how page "How to start running." Only three days a week. Maybe if I keep telling myself I can do it I will be able to do it.
Wish me luck.
Wish me luck.

This picture was taken a couple of months ago out at my grandpas house. His next door neighbor has a pen with goats in it. Ayman got to feed the goats some green grass. He thought it was fun. On fathers day, all of Aymans older cousins sat out there watching those goats. I asked my cousin Jacob what they were doing and he told me: "We are waiting for them to fart or hump." Sweet.
Here is one of Aymans new things. He will pretend he is a baby. He will swipe Jennahs pacifier from her, get his blanket, and lay on the floor. Then he proceeds to make noises like a baby, and waves his arms and legs around in the air. Sometimes he wants you to hold him like a baby too. This time, my mom was over and he was really laying the baby act on, so we put one of Jennahs bows in his hair too. We can file this one under "pictures my mom will show my girlfriends when I grow up"
Heh heh heh, can't wait.

This is a happy baby. I hope she stays this way forever. (happy I mean) She rolls over now, and is starting to try to laugh at me. She will sleep all night long when I am at work, but not when I am home. She gave us quite a surprise last week when ( I cant believe I am going to write this, but it is my blog and she will read it one day) she fell off the couch. Yes, I left my 3.75 month old infant unsupervised on the couch. With a huge ottoman in front of her. She was sleeping with her back facing out kind of angled down ward. anyhoo, long story short, I came back in from potting a mini rose bush, and Amr was holding her. I asked him if she was crying and he said "she fell off the couch." I was stunned, to say the least, because to get off the couch she had to do a 180 and then a couple of complete rolls from there, but I guess she did. I asked Amr if she was face down or up on the floor, and his answer was, "I have no idea, I heard crying, I came in, I didn't see her, I picked her up. It happened very fast" Oh well. I busted out my little wedgie things for her to lay between now that she is mobile. Ayman didn't roll over until after he was crawling so Jennah is charting new territory with us. Her brains seemed unscrambled and she was able to focus, so we declared her good to go. She also fell on to a soft surface (softer than a hardwood floor that is to say) Long story short, I feel like Brittany Spears. Just not pregnant, rich, and white trash. Lets see what else can my little pixie do these days beside explode her diapers off of her body? She is holding her head up great, and trying to lift her upper body up when I cradle her. She only wants the boob, and is giving Amr a hard time when he feeds her on the weekend, but I am working on remedying that situation. Now we are trying to give her a set bedtime, and get used to being laid down for the night. It is going good so far, and I will keep my fingers crossed. In Ayman news, he got a Hep A vaccination (I think it was hep a.) He didn't even really notice the girl gave him a shot, which was way cool. Today I had him sit on the toilet for about twenty minutes after I found him grunting away by the computer, but that didn't pan out. I guess we will have to just keep on keepin' on with that one. That is it though. Oh and if anyone wants a myspace friend as boring as me, you can find me under cassnasr.
