Run Love - This afternoon, Dizzle's school is hosting an Open House to give the children a chance to meet their teacher, check out the classroom and drop off their supplies before the first day of school.
In addition to the $18 million worth of supplies we need to bring, Dizzle's teacher asked us to fill out a questionnaire, so that she could learn a little something about each student. One of the questions was, "Can you recall a moment this summer that made your child proud?" Not wanting to assume, I asked Dizzle to tell me what she was most proud of this summer.
Her reply? "Running the 5K and being in Runner's World."
Yup, at age 6, my kid is a runner ...
How do you say it? - My arrival in Seattle for Hood to Coast, once again proved to me that NO ONE knows how to say my name. I bet you're thinking, "Sure I do. It's said Ton-ya."
And with that you'd be 100% wrong. Only one person has ever said it correctly upon meeting me. And he fessed up to practicing beforehand.
So, let's clear this up right now.
My name is Tonia.
Got it? Probably not. That's why most people call me T. Or TMB. Or if you happen to be my oldest friend, Moe.
Responsibility - Sometimes being a grown up sucks. That is all.
