Wine Show Results

Well, the show was quite enjoyable...at least the early part. We got there early enough to have some of the cheaper wines, a bit of beer a few tastes of some foods and then into the reserve area. Unfortunately I lost the notes I was making so not sure of some of the wines I had, but most were quite enjoyable...and the reserve area included some very expensive wines (I tried a $150 port that was actually not bad, usually they can be overly sweet) toward the end of the reserve though I had had it...I was brought back to the hotel and the guys went for food. Go figure. After a 4 hour nap though I was up, had some pizza and we went to see a comedy show. Had a drink before at the Red White and F*$#ing Blue bar (yes, that is on a sign in the bar) then went to the show and had a couple of other drinks at a couple other nice places nearby after the show. It was a nice evening. Woke up and had breakfast and then came home where I am still trying to get up the energy to clean...sigh...one of these days I will. I did get a run, wasn't feeling really great (namely a bit of upset tummy from hangover). But managed 6 miles and a total of 30 for the week. Less than the 37 of last week but OK nonetheless. I just need to remain focused. And the big drinking weekends should be over now. I should avoid the temptation hopefully for a while and get back on schedule of only the weather now holds!!

Ooohhh, shiny appliances. :)

Good job with the running. Take it a week at a time. Or at least that's what I'm telling myself.

I like the appliances. If we ever get new ones, they will be stainless.

I love your appliances. I am thinking of replacing mine too and actually made a trip to Best Buy this weekend after reading your post! I haven't bought anything yet but have my eyes on a few things!
