11.08.08

Today I was totally prepared to be thankful that soccer was cancelled. It has been wet and rainy for 2 days now, and I was certain the fields would be too wet to play on. Not to mention slippery! Sadly, soccer was NOT cancelled. So instead I was thankful for my new rainboots. Aren't they cute?


I've been wearing them solidly since Thursday, and was so totally glad I had them on this morning. It was drizzly and cold, but at least my feet were warm and dry. They are going to be even better once I get the fleece inserts!  I can't wait.

I also thought I should mention the man I saw this morning on the River Path. He was wearing an all grey sweat suit, and was about 40 years old. He had a chain around his waist and hanging from the chain, dragging behind him on the ground, was a large tire. Yep, a tire. It looked really hard to pull, and when I passed him I saw that inside of the tire was a bunch of metal. Very, very strange, right? I was thinking I could be thankful for him as well, because the path was so covered in leaves that on my run I kept getting off the path and pushing the baby jogger into mud because you couldn't see where it was. After I passed the tire guy, the path was evident, since where he had drug it you could see the sidewalk... dotted with piles of leaves.

I don't get it. Maybe it's the next Tae bo?

I an sure the rain boots are better than Uggs. I didn't think my Uggs would EVER get dry.

Did I spell Ugg right or is it Ugh?

Maybe they were filming an episode of PrisonBreak in Scarsdale? Better tune in as you and OZ may be on network TV.
