I just spent the last half-hour trying to figure out how to get from St. Louis, where we're flying in to visit my dad, to Iowa City where my mom lives, over Christmas break. Amazingly, renting a car will cost $450, unless we go to extreme measures to rent it, drive it up to Iowa City, and return it all in one day. Maybe we should just buy a car and keep it in the midwest.
If anybody has any ideas I'd love to hear them.
On the positive side, it's Thursday (almost Friday!!). We went to Happy Hour last night and will be going again tonight, then we're going to a Dandy Warhols (psychedelic rock band) concert at the Pyramid Brewery on Saturday night so we've got a fun-packed scene going on here. In the middle of that I've got another 10-mile training run to grit my teeth and get through, but I've inspired myself by planning a fancy breakfast afterwards.
Happy Thursday everyone!!
