Monday Meanderings

The Princess...getting a little bit of love from my dad's Boxer, Joy.

  • Having finished the baby gifts (with mere seconds to spare!) it would appear that the Green Woman has gone on vacation.
  • Seriously...can't find her anywhere....it's got to be a first.
  • Man, the house is VERY quiet without her!
  • As a consequence, I spent my morning quiet hour cleaning up my office space in the basement.
  • And I have no idea of what I want to do next.
  • Spinning? Two projects prepped and ready...so maybe.
  • Knitting? I have Christmas presents I need to do, and lots of other things I want to do...so maybe.
  • Embroidery? Well I haven't started yet, and I do really want to do some...so maybe as well.
  • Or perhaps I'll just take a few days to clean the house, read some books, drink some coffee, ponder the meaning of creativity and the universe....
  • In the meantime, here are a few thoughts.
  • That Geiko commercial with the annoying pig in the back of the car is funny until one's 4-year-old starts weee, weeeing and then announces that she wants to go "Wee all the way home!"
  • BootCamp today was a version of the BodyAttack class. I am not an aerobics kind of girl...and I'm not a loud music kind of girl...so it was just m'eh.
  • I had the worst run of my life yesterday...completely hitting the wall at 1.5 miles. I'm now very worried about the 10K next Saturday.
  • Consequently, I gave myself permission to skip the race if I decide that's what's best.
  • But then I also received some really good support in BootCamp this AM from both our leader and one of my classmates who regularly runs races.
  • So who knows what I'll end up doing?!?!
  • I'm sleepy.
  • Perhaps I should take a nap.
  • The girls' Halloween costumes - which we purchased for the first time - arrived on Friday. It's going to be a very Star Wars Halloween, and both girls are delighted!
  • Actually, it's a toss up as to who's more excited - the girls or their father. (Or me...because I don't have to stress about making them and/or begging my mother to make them...)
  • Which reminds me, I will soon get to endure the annual Halloween decorating extravaganza that my husband delights in. Sigh.
  • Yep, definitely need a nap.

Have a great week everyone!

Hope you got that nap!

What about walking at least some of the 10k?

We just got our Halloween costumes too - Abbott's Harry Potter, and Cal's a bottle of root beer :) (he's only even tried it once, but liked the look of the costume)

I bet she makes a return soon. I think (at least for me) part of all this indecision is the season change - I'm like this for a few days every fall and every spring.
