A Saturday: In Ten Easy Steps

1.) Set alarm for 4:45 am Saturday morning.  Sprung out of bed at 6:11 am and made it to Lake Sammamish at 6:42 am only by the grace of God.
2.) Got pulled over for driving on the wrong side of the road en route to said Lake. Fact. Really long story.
3.) Squeezed into a tiny tiny wet suit only to swim, bike, run, consecutively, in and around Lake Sammamish.  They call it a triathlon, I like to call it a character building experience.
4.) Did not die as a result of #3, again, only by the grace of God.
5.) Cleaned out car that had no less than (and not limited to) 2 bikes, a wet wet suit, work out clothes, work clothes, 3 belts, 4 trashy women's magazines, one romance novel left behind by its rightful owner, 3 blankets, 2 pillows, 5 water bottles, 15 packs of gum, a diamond ring, a pearl necklace, and 7 pairs of shoes.
6.) Took the hottest most deserved and most necessary shower of my life.
7.) Started Thunderstruck (Eric Larson).
8.) Did 6 loads of laundry.  Probably washed most everything I own.
9.) Napped in the big comfy chair.
10.) Slept like a baby in clean sheets.

Good work, ladies.  You define strength and determination. You are heros.  I can't imagine 2 other people I would have rather have done it with.  Same time, same place next year.
