Three Things Thursday

Here's my first Three Things Thursday ever:

1) I am thoroughly annoyed by my next door neighbors.  All they do is cut their lawn!  It's not the noise that bothers me; it's the fact that they are making me look bad!  No matter how hard I try, they always cut their lawn before me.  I swear, they mow three times a week.  I guess they must not work since it always looks perfectly groomed when I get home.  I've seen them out there once or twice, so I know they don't have a service, but they're really making me feel bad about it.  I mow the lawn and I actually like it, but I hate feeling pressured to do so to keep up with the Jones'.  Annoying.

2) I am LOVING my running right now.  Long runs have been so successful: food has been spot on, love my new shorts, and I have been feeling good about them.  Running with friends has been great, I'm on spot with my training schedule.  I don't want to jinx it, but I'm really not that nervous for my first full marathon at this moment since it has all been going so well!  My first 14 miler is this weekend and that'll be my longest run EVER - never gone past a half, so I'm looking forward to it. 

3) I just got a brand new laptop at work!  Woohoo!  It's so exciting!  I didn't realize how slow my old one was until we hooked this one up - love it!!

Hope you're all having a Terrific Thursday!


  1. yayyy I can't wait to hear how your 14 miler goes. Isn't the weather perfect right now?

    Annoying neighbors are the worst, ughh. It's a toss up if it's worse if they cut their lawn allll the time or if they never do. Both are so annoying.

  2. Glad to hear the running is going good and darn neighbors anyways!

  3. Isn't it nice when your runs are going great and you feel supremely confident because of it? I want to get back to that, to where you are.

    New laptops rock!

    Oh, and my next door neighbor is the world's biggest @(#()!* He infuriates me like no other! He purposely puts my trash cans to block my driveway so i can't get into my driveway if I don't move them up early enough in the day. He parks in the street so he acts like he's entitled to his spot there and how dare I leave my trash cans out there when he gets home from work. Nevermind that he's got a new Lexus and his driveway is blocked by a really old car that doesn't run and a boat trailer with junk on it (they don't even have a boat). If he cleared his driveway maybe he could park there - novel idea, I know... That guy is a gigantic turdbucket. I wish my biggest complaint was that he mowed his lawn all the time :( Thanks for riling me up!!! ;)

  4. HA, I love mowing my lawn while my neighbors isn't...... Glad to hear the weather I ordered is working for you. HA
