My blogging and Facebooking is taking a hit on this new contract. I'm scared to death to log onto Facebook from the office network. I've got a feeling that they have internet software that watches my every move, and I'm sure social networking sites are a no-no hear. Mustn't get fired all ready! LOL... I'm so far behind on my blog reading and posting.
Despite being extremely busy, things are moving along at Chez Chaotic. Dee Dee's prospects for permanent employment are moving along nicely, and I am on a short term contract. Darling Dee Dee managed to convince the extremely nice people at Eagleman that she needed a charity slot for the race. It would be her first half ironman and all. Being the generous folks that they are, they coughed up two slots. One for her, and one for me. How cool is that?
After discussing it with Dee Dee, I've decided not to accept my slot to Eagleman. This was a very tough thing for me to do. Eagleman is a great course, and I really have a hard time justifying going all that way and not racing. The other side of the coin... I know that I will enjoy the trip, watching the race, and sherpa-ing Dee Dee through her first half Ironman. Ultimately, Dee Dee came first, as is appropriate.
The fallout from all of this is that Ironman Arizona is back on. I'm going to try and register, and if its a go, I'm going for it next year. I want to do an Ironman every two years right now, until my kids graduate from high school. I'm excited! We'll see how it turns out!!
