Couch to 5k

Okay, I know that there are plenty of you out there who regularly run miles and miles, but I'm so happy about this I wanted to tell all my DamnFriends. The lovely sistermaryeris and I embarked on the Couch to 5K program in April, and we TOOK OUR TIME. At first we could barely handle the 90-second run intervals.

Today, we did our first 5k run!

If you're thinking about getting started, Couch to 5K is an awesome way to goad yourself slowly into running. It works! If it can get this over-50 guy off the couch and running a few days a week, it can work for you. :)

Dog friendly hotels downtown

Anyone have recommendations for a dog friendly hotel downtown? My husbands work x-mas party is downtown and we want to kinda make a night of it. I know about the La Quinta, but would prefer to stay at one that is more walking/transit distance to places downtown. I'm kinda looking at the Hotel Monaco and the Marriot...any other suggestions recommendations would be grand! We are needing to leave the pups in the room for at least 4-5 hours...if that matters...(they will be exhausted and sleeping as they will spend all day at day care) thanks!

House Cleaning Services

Rather than trying doing everything myself, it was pointed out to me that I could hire someone on an occasional basis to keep the abode tidy.

I'm not looking for perfection, just the ability to come home from work and not cringe.

Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!
