Nearing Extinction: The American Worker

American Labor has suffered tremendous setbacks in the past few decades while big corporations are recording higher profits than ever before and paying their CEO's six and seven million dollar salaries. All this when the minimum wage remains well below the poverty line.

June 12 of 12

It's that time again and I didn't forget! Although I am a day late in posting. Yesterday proved to be a long day....

5:15 a.m. - Took a quick picture of my old counter top microwave that I'm going to list on Craig's List for $25, so if you're in the greater Columbus, Ohio area and are in need of a microwave...let me know, have I got a deal for you! :)

8:00 a.m. - Picture of my cooler which transported by meals for the week. I needed to put it in an insulated container as I spent two hours at the gym that morning.

9:15 a.m. - Wrapping up my dad's Father's Day present. So to all you Father's out there - Happy Father's Day Sunday, June 17th!

10:20 a.m. - Uh oh. We received a fine from the Ohio Elections Commission because I filed a report late....

4:05 p.m. - Heading out the door to my beautiful, not so new, but still lovely Honda CR-V! I love this car!

4:40 p.m. - Arriving at my friend Jacqui's house. I'm hanging out here before the Circle of Friends 5K.

5:00 p.m. - Took a picture of her window fan that I plan on purchasing because oh my goodness, does that thing rock! Her loft was so nice and cool despite it being 87 degrees outside and the A/C was NOT on!

5:10 p.m. - Eating my afternoon snack of tuna and mixed greens pre-race. Want plenty of time to digest....

5:30 p.m. - My friend Kelly arriving to change her clothes for the 5K and pick me up!

6:10 p.m. - Race registration. The Circle of Friends 5K benefits Columbus Children's Hospital and its many (unfortunately) cancer patients.

8:45 p.m. - Dropping off season 4 of QAF. I needed to see how the boys of Liberty Avenue ended their run!

9:00 p.m. - Picture of my race bib.

9:50 p.m. - A sideways glance of my stairs upstairs. I'm beat!
