oh the choices!

I absolutely love getting the mail. It's something about the unknown of what could be in that little silver box. Usually I'm disappointed with junk mail and bills or the mail person not delivering necessary items on time but not today. Today I arrived home from my morning long run (16 slow miles) ready to relax. The hubs is golfing all day and my condo is actually clean since we had friends staying the night last night so I actually have free time for me. I was thinking of taking the computer to my front porch to catch up on blogs but then I opened our mail slot to find this...

I hit the mail jackpot today! Now I need to figure out what to start out with on my lazy day of reading. I'm thinking Tom and Amy's advance copy of The Ultimate Runner may be a good one to enjoy on my front patio this afternoon.

It's a good Saturday I only wish could be longer! A long run in the morning, reading and relaxing all afternoon, and Craig Ferguson's stand-up show at the Chicago Theatre tonight!

Jealous, looks like some good reading! My house isn't clean though, so it's off to tackle the kitchen! Enjoy your Saturday.

Looks like you hit the jackpot! I love finding mags in the mail too, I get a little too excited.

I hope you enjoyed your day of reading. I've never heard of The Ultimate Runner. I may have to check that one out.

Yay!! I LOVE it when my running mags arrive! Now, if I could just find a day to read, read, read...*sigh* I always end up with my laptop OR have a gazillion family commitments.
