Another week gone by. My lack of blogging is not in direct correlation with my life being boring. On the contrary, I've been too busy! So to recap:

I've had trouble with my motivation and getting up at o'dark-thirty to swim at morning Masters, but I did manage to get over to Jordan lake on Wednesday for some open water swimming with friends.

Marty and I saw The Green Lantern on Tuesday. There were some bad fires over on the coast and our air was full of awful smoke so a movie was a good option. We had no idea that our local theatre has a promotion on Tuesday's called "Super Stimulus Tuesdays" where we not only got the matinee $5 movie ticket price, but also $1 popcorn and $1 cokes! What a deal! Oh yeah, the movie? It was comic book silliness. Entertaining, yes, which is what I go to the movies for. But when I accidentally let it slip to Marty that I thought overall it was kind of stupid, he looked at me like I had two heads.

I was in FAR training for 3 straight days at work. What is FAR? Federal Aquisition Regulation. I know, it's hard not to be jealous.

The Kure Beach Double Sprint was this past weekend, and it was sad not to be racing but I still had a lot of fun hanging out and cheering for everyone. Marty and I ran another open water swim clinic on Saturday before gorging ourselves at a yummy pancake shop. The gang hit the beach all afternoon while Marty went into Wilmington to buy a stand up paddle board! Can't wait to try it out! We had a nice dinner that night complete with the world's dumbest waiter. Here was one of the exchanges we had with him:

Bobby: "Do you have any microbrews?"
Waiter: "Micro whats?"
Bobby: "Microbrews."
Waiter: "Uhhhhh. I've never heard of that."
Marty: "Small commerically made beer from the US..."
Waiter: "Huh! I don't know what that is and I'm a bartender!"
Me: "Craft beer?"
Waiter: "Draft beer! Yeah! We have draft beer!"

The waiter was quite good looking and has obviously gotten through life because of it, I'm thinking.

The race was good - it started an hour earlier this year so it wasn't quite as death hot as in years past and the wind was negligible so overall it was pretty fast.

Pregnancy is progressing. AKA, Bri is getting fat.

Here is Tassie - I wanted to take a picture of her before her summer hair cut. She would only look at the camera if I also held her paw.
