So this spring brought about the discovery of the most unpleasant sort; THIS arachnid, known as a tarantula, inhabits Arkansas. So do I. I'm not really sure that this state is big enough for both of us...
Sorry this picture is so blurry, but I was NOT going to get any closer. I really don't like spiders. I do fine with snakes, I LIKE lizards and frogs, but this is really over my limit.
People are starting to look at me funny when I run. I guess a 30-week pregnant woman in a skanky run-top is probably not the most common sight on the trail.
I laugh at the variety of reactions I get. There are those who like to tell me that I really "shouldn't be doing that"; and then there are those who think I'm cool. My doctor doesn't understand why I want to run, but he said it's fine (for those of you temped to leave comments asking me if I should be doing that).
The pictures are my before and after pictures of the Big Dam Bridge Twilight 5K I ran this weekend. We are dorks and forgot to bring the camera to the actual race with us.
Check out my cute husband:
We went waterskiing with Dr. Bower, one of Rob's attendings, last weekend. We had a great time, as is obvious from looking at Rob's face.
I took a quick turn:
And, finally, for the sad part of the story: R.I.P.
This summer, I rented a community garden plot at Two Rivers Park. I had a great time planning out what I was going to plant, plotting out what should go where, and then spent many back-breaking but fulfilling hours planting the entire plot. It was so fun to watch all the seeds sprouting and my little baby plants flourishing under the Arkansas sun.
But then the deer came. And the racoons. And the deer came back. Again. And again. And again. What they haven't eaten, they have trampled. I was way too depressed to even photo-document the ravages.
To placate my cravings for fresh fruits and veggies, I joined the Arkansas Basket A Month Club.
Check out the beautiful peaches and fresh farm milk I had for breakfast:
And just for the record, I am still mad at the deer. I'm debating becoming a deer hunter...
