Still Buried, Weekend in Brief


Lexcor rose at 6:30a.m. this Saturday and hiked up to East 102nd Street/Central Park for the NYRR Hot Chocolate 15K. Simply getting up that early on a Saturday and dealing with the cold just to run 9 miles was a great accomplishment for one of us. And I was very proud of him. The race was fun and I do declare that I have really, really missed doing NYRR runs.

Saturday Summary: long, cold run; giant, painful blister on my instep; return home to no heat or hot water, culprit: busted furnace; also found 1.5" of water in basement, culprit: one broken pump and groundwater seepage; afternoon spent in basement sweeping stagnant water into working pump on other side of basement and chatting with plumber about broken furnace parts.

Sunday Summary: woke up to snow (!); quick run in snow, so pretty; heat and hot water back up, somewhat; remainder of day spent in pajamas cleaning and lolling about; term paper still not complete.

Goals for the Week: finish term paper or it's bad news bears for Corie; make holiday cards with Youngna; finish this stupid term paper; visit the Philip Johnson Glass House; look into registering my thesis as a third class in the fall so that I can graduate in January 2009; find some extra time to sleep.

Can't wait to hear about the Johnson house along with all his other "follies" on the property.

The site should be interesting in the snow!
