OK... time to catch up on Off the Map!!!!


  1. Growing up I was a cat lover too. Now I'm allergic. Go figure.

  2. Agreed on the turning signal pet peeve. I've grown an unhealthy dose of road rage over the years due to incompetent drivers. haha

  3. Fun list. I loved your report fromt the indoor tri, how frustrating that the bike did not record distance!

  4. These posts are great! I'm an admin assistant too aka the go-to girl for anything and everything. :)

    I started watching OTM but couldn't get into it after the first few episodes.

  5. Did you keep all those shoes from about 9 blogs ago? I have the bright green ones. I like the black/pink ones too. Just found some other ones I like. Don't need them but I like them.

  6. ajh -- I returned the Nike Air Pegasus because there was a problem with the right heel. I also exchanged the Newtons for a different pair because the left shoe pitched inward, causing my left knee to hurt. Still have the black/pink Nike Frees. :)

  7. I love these lists Richelle! My friend has 3 beagles and they are sisters--powerful noses!! Love 'em!

    Sounds like your Nike Free's are still working for you????

  8. Many things in common (not the age): allergic, cats lover, blue color, right handed, dislike hot pepper, I don't like being late.
    Very nice post.

  9. I'm actually not allergic to dust, but having extra particles of it in the air make my nose itch.

  10. I love these "get to know you" posts. I mean, how else would I find this all out!? I am a night owl as well.
