Fish are addicting

We got our fourth fish yesterday. Another fantail goldfish with interesting dark orange and white patterning. Named him Finn (the white fantail is officially Fanny). :-)

I ran again today. It's nice to be out there again, but I certainly need new shoes. If the nearest running store wasn't freakin' 40 minutes away, it would be a lot easier to get said shoes. I need to make a real effort to get them because I am running on totally worn-out shoes.

And I just have to share this fun Christmas tidbit with you guys (thankfully Kara can't read yet and doesn't access my blog, LOL). I found Kara's big Christmas present on craigslist this year. I have become a serious CL nut, selling stuff to earn extra cash and buying a few things here and there. Well, Kara had been hitting me up big time to buy her a Barbie Power Wheels Jeep. You know, the kind a kid can actually drive. They are EXPENSIVE! There was no way I was going to spend a minimum of $229 on something, then tack on another $30 for shipping and another $25 for taxes!

So I searched CL and found one for sale near my parents. They were asking $89 for it!
Long story short, I set it up with the seller for my dad to pick it up and pay him, and we will pay back my parents. So now this beautiful Barbie Jeep is sitting in my parents' house, waiting for us to visit at Christmas and surprise Kara (pic from the actual CL ad):

Needless to say, I am quite excited! :-)

Today's stats:
Distance: two miles

Awww, that's so awesome! She is going to love it!

If you know what kind of shoes you need, just order them online. You can probably find them pretty cheap if you search around and the shipping may be less than the gas to drive 40 minutes away. I bet you could find an online coupon somewhere too.

Maybe even CL? ;)
