thanks & praise~a baby in Detroit!

I'm doing a Two Things Tuesday, even ON a Tuesday this week. I am so excited, I can hardly contain myself! Here's why:

1. THERE IS A BABY IN DETROIT! My brother (ODP) and sister-in-law (Kdot) were expecting their second child to arrive sometime around last Tuesday. As last Tuesday came and went, my level of excitement and anxiety multiplied. Last night around 12:30 my time, I got the call--the baby had been born and it was a girl! Mother & baby are doing fine. I just got off Skype with them, so I sort of got to see everyone. She is a beautiful, perfect little thing! (can you tell I'm excited?!?) I don't have pictures yet, but in the meantime, here is a very pregnant Kdot. How could you not love this chick??


2. The second part of my Two Things Tuesday is drastically less exciting, but really, unless I learned to shoot fire out of my eyes, what could possibly compete with a healthy, beautiful, brand new niece?

After my run this morning, I am officially over 100 miles for August (101.4 to be exact). I'm pretty sure this is a first for me. Also, I'm only about 20 miles from surpassing my 2009 total. Pretty pleased about that!

Mileage: 454.8 + 4.4 = 459.1 (rounding error annoys me)

and p.s. if you ever learn to shoot fire out of your eyes, i expect to be one of the first people to know ;-) because that would be awesome.

Yeah for a new niece! Oh, and for 100 miles in August too. We should skype some time. I forget we could do that.
