I've waited my whole life to say this

if you only knew
I still want the mac & cheese
and I don't like the way I smell today.
It reminds me of when I was unemployed 7 years ago
...must have been what I was wearing then.

St. Louis in the palm of our hands...
Nancy Magellan - our personal GPS navigational instructor.
Driving into St. Louis for the first time and seeing the Arch in the distance

Ted Drewes frozen custard
Lemp Mansion (not really haunted, but the wait staff might be a little posessed)
The Hill! (Cunetto House of Pasta & Ragazzi's)
Page Boulevard... what?
Driving all over St. Louis
Driving the entire distance of the state of MO from St. Louis to KC

I logged on to Blogger this morning to see if this thing was still here. I am surprised to find that not only do I remember my password, but my password remembers me.
So how was everyone's Fourth of July yesterday? Mine was a little piece of perfect. We got up early (earlier than I get up for work, and on my extra day off!!) and skipped over to the Maryland Farms YMCA to join about 1300+ runners at the Cadillac Firecracker 5k. It was so fun! I haven't run a 5k in about 6 years. I enjoyed this one being on July 4th... we started with a prayer and the National Anthem, and then we were off! My time?? Embarrassing by most runner's standards and experience, but I was happy that I ran the whole thing without stopping in 30 minutes.
For lunch we grilled tilapia, swordfish, chicken, burgers, etc...
Then after an hour and half nap (I needed it after getting up at 5:38 and running), we took in a Sounds game. I haven't been to one of those in a couple of years either. This seemed to me to be the perfect thing to do on July 4th. America's past-time...corndogs...icecream served in a mini basball cap... fireworks... and then sitting in an enclosed parking cage for an hour while 500 cars try to squeeze out of one exit... receiving verbal obscenities from other drivers in the parking cage. Ahhh...America!
Next year we're parking a mile away and walking to the game.
