i’m excited that the world cup has rolled around again. i’ve been watching (and loving) international soccer since 1986, when i was just 4 years old (cheering for argentina at the time). although i don’t have the patience (or the time or the cable) to watch entire games, i have had fun making my bracket and watching/reading highlights.

my bracket is messy!!

today is my monthly day off from work and boy do i need it! i ran a really hard race on saturday (SO. MANY. HILLS) and we spent all of sunday doing chores inside and outside the house. i woke up early this morning to go to hot yoga and then took a nice lon g epsom bath, which have both really helped with my sore quads. i’m planning to spend the rest of the day doing a mix of more chores and fun, relaxing things

    OMG I love Elise and Kal so much. Did you get those blogs from mine, or did you know about them before? If you did hear about them from me, I’d be a little bit proud, I have to say.

    The other blogs look awesome too. I’ll have to check them out!

    I have to say soccer on TV doesn’t excite me much at all. But, a friend of mine loves it, so I hear about it.

      yes! well. i found elise’s site from your blogroll and fell in love instantly. i found [i] lovelife a little while ago in some very convoluted way while i was working on a project that i will eventually get around to posting about. i got excited when i saw that you read it too!

      i haven’t actually watched any games yet. i haven’t even watched clips or highlights! but i have been keeping track of standings. so far my predictions are at least 25% off, but that’s ok.

    I think Marissa Mayer has been doing a fantastic job and can’t delay to determine what is next. I truly loved this post here much:
