I thought I lost my iPod Nano!

Talk about feeling like I lost an arm!

Yesterday, I noticed the side pocket of my gym bag was open and NO iPOD! I looked everywhere but nothing. I quickly called the my gym and asked if someone turned in an iPod. Figured since that was the last place I used it, I have most likely dropped it somewhere in the locker room. They didn't have it but they said they'll keep a look out for it.

Well, it got me thinking. Maybe, this will be a good excuse to get the new iPod Nano with the skinnier body and cool colors. I have the first generation one, which was only available in black & white when I bought it. I was already drooling at the prospect of getting the hot pink one and plotting of a way to sneak out of work in the middle of the day to purchase the hot pink iPod Nano at the nearby Circuit City. What can I say, I'm an iPod whore. ;-)

But alas, it wasn't meant to be!

I got in this morning to find a voicemail from the gym telling me they found my iPod. Oh well! The way I see it, I don't need the extra expense. Especially considering I just bought a car and I haven't even made the firsts monthly payment yet. LOL.

Speaking of colorful iPod, did you see the new hot colors for the iPod Shuffle? Again, I got the boring silver one coz the colors were not available back then. I swear Apple does this to me all the time!

Nothing much going on. Still working, still working out, and still running. I have also been watching American Idol and actually paying attention since it's now the top 24. All I can say is, send the all the guys home and keep the girls! Well, except a couple of the girls who were beyond horrible. The best singers were on the girls side. And OMG, Lakisha! I saw Dreamgirls a couple of months ago and I thought Lakisha did Jennifer proud with her rendition of "And I am Telling You I'm Not Going". But anything can happen so we'll just have to see.

I'm very happy to say that I'm looking forward to the running break this week. According to this training schedule I'm following (week 6), I'm only supposed to run 5K this weekend! Woohoo! My legs can definitely use the break. BUT, I am increasing my mileage next week to 4.5 miles on the weekdays and 7 miles for my weekend long run. I'm scared!

Hey girlie...I sooooo wanted the pink one too, but I one my silver one at work, so beggars can't be choosers...sigh. I'm glad they found yours though, it's refreshing that someone turned it in, instead of keeping it for themselves!! Keep keepin on girl, you are the energizer bunny!!

Glad you got it back. I would love to have an Ipod or even an MP3 player. My step-kids both have Ipods. It's sad really. One day I will treat myself.

Have a great weekend running!

Apple did the same thing to me too. I have a plain one and my sister has a hot pink one. Not fair!!!!!!

Glad that your iPod wasn't lost.

I was worried for Lakisha when they said that was what she was singing, but then she started and she did such a great job!!!!!! I don't think she will win, but I'm proud of her for trying. She definitely took a risk.

I started laughing when I read you were kinda happy about losing it. It's weird that the way things like that make you think. You had your eye on a new one. LOL too cute. Lori

I always wait awhile before I break down and buy something so I have yet to buy an iPod. And now I'm glad I've waited! I saw someone with the hot pink one and her name was engraved on the back. Snazzy!

Oh, I love those hot pink ones!! I got an MP3 player and it's pink, still cute, but I really want one of those pink IPods. Wowza on that running scheduled :)

That's a pretty decent training schedule! When you get to your 7 miler, you'll be ready. You don't have to go fast, you just need to get in the milage. Nice job! Don't they sell snazzy covers for the Ipod? Perhaps you can dress yours up. LOL...

I'm glad you didn't lose your IPOD. I actually dropped my video ipod last week and it's now broken. It sounds like a box of Good & Plenty now. I'm sending it back because I bought the extra protection plan so I hope they don't give me a problem with it. Great job on the running, I can't wait to run again.

Funny how we think about NEW things when a old one might be gone eh? ~lol~
Great stuff with the runs is right!
