Apparently I’ve been busy. It’s the time of year where I swear I would have a large chunk of Christmas stuff done and so far I’ve managed to order cards online and that’s it. Jasper and I are also signed up for a cookie making class…does that count?
I’m coming to the end of Dallas marathon training. I managed a 20 miler last weekend. While the temps have been pleasant every weekend seems to have torrential rains. The 20 miler was done at the crack of dawn with a very gracious friend who met me for a large chunk and I ended up with just about 7 miles in cold and wet. But it was done!!! This weekend is more cold and wet and I plan to just manage want I can manage. I’m still assessing goals, but mainly just thankful I have a group of friends coming with me to scratch another 26.2 off the list.
I also celebrated another birthday. It was a nice quiet sushi dinner. It was a good one….the last two years someone in the family (hint, his picture appears frequently in this blog), had epic tantrums, epic enough that two years later I still remember them. This year there were no epic tantrums. No tantrums at all and was lovely.
And now it’s Thanksgiving…..and I’ve got 4 different pies on the schedule. Pies first….miles later.
