You know you're in Wisconsin when...

-You press scan on your receiver and the first station that comes in is playing polka

-You think everyone is dressed for the holiday season, but they are really just wearing Packer and Badger gear

-There is a new food group on the pyramid and its name is "fried"

-The biggest outrage of the year is the NFL network stealing football games that people without Dish can't access

-People are so nice you wonder if they have mistaken you for someone important

Yes, I'm at home, sweet home. The drive here was smooth and well aided by the wonder of Red Bull. In my caffeine Naive body, one can of red bull lasts me about 10 hours of complete and total wakefulness. I'm crashing pretty hard now, though.

I should probably do some shopping tomorrow, but since the Packers play, that will probably not happen... Thanks to amazon.com I have most of my presents here already.

My training load is really high right now. For some reason, I found it necessary to sign up for 4 different training challenges. So between logging all of my miles every day and actually doing the training, my day is pretty booked up. Tomorrow I have the trainer workout from hell again with a 30+ minute run. Should be fun in the blizzard that should be hitting any time now. I am already getting a tad bit tired of the dreadmill.

Ok, I'm spent and getting a bit curious about what on earth my mom is watching on her computer across the room. I keep hearing really loud fart noises and my mom giggling away. I'll leave you with some pics of the dogs. Christmas came early for them this year..

Maddie got a sweater from Matt. It has a big pic of Sponge Bob on the back. She is horrified by it, and that just makes that much more funny...



I didn't want Murphy to feel left out so here he is in his hew antlers...



And another present for Maddie. As you can see, she is delighted...
