Back from the Thanksgiving Odyssey travels. T-day was nice at my brother's, no drama for a change. A bit overwhelming as my SIL had over 30 people!!! Yipes. Then the best decision we made was to send ds back with dh on the train the next day instead of coming with me for the bar mitzvah road trip. He would have been miserable and made us all miserable also. So I and the girls headed to the DC metro area for the weekend, which was fun, overwhelming, intense, and bittersweet (as I really miss living in that community). I left the bar mitzvah party early on Sat. night and drove up to my parents in NJ to sleep a few hours, then we came back the rest of the way Sunday morning.
In all that time only one run, on Tday.
Took the day off yesterday, my first solo day off since before school started. I had grand plans to clean the house but decided instead to get my errands (oil change, etc.) done and then meet a friend to go shopping. Which was fun. Dh gave me a gift card for Chanukah so I spent it on something I would never have paid out of pocket for but really wanted (a very good skin cream for daytime), I got a bright orange pencil skirt at Banana Republic on clearance pluse 40% off (I paid like $17 for it), and I bought myself a fun Life is Good mug for school. Silly things but fun. I am also starting a 'pithy historical sayings' bumper sticker collection for my classroom (which I will laminate and put up on a bulletin board, not stick on). So at this offbeat independent bookstore in Northampton where I also bought dh's Chanukah gift, I got some funny ones.
RR: 6.2 yesterday, 6.2 today. The fog today was actually really good for my asthma so I did some speedwork.
