Hi again mamas,
new dingos! Just jump right in and you'll be an old timer in no time, this thread moves fast! Here
is an album of pix of our altar for Day of the Dead. Thanks for asking! I must say that it was a very peaceful project in the end. Sort of an art therapy kind of thing I guess.
Anyway, it did this amazing
thing for me today.
I have the altar set up in our front hall and we generally always keep the front door closed but today I just felt like having it open so I could see the altar better. Well, not realizing where he was, an old dear friend of mine from college who was just aimlessly wandering around SMA (and knew I lived here but nothing else about where or what I do) saw the altar through the open door and wandered in. He spent a few minutes just looking at the altar and wondering who lived here because he 'got' the Bush thing right away. He noticed our business card and picked it up. As he turned to walk out he looked at the card and saw my name on it and came the rest of the way into the house and found me! How crazy is that? I hadn't seen him in at least 11 years but the second I turned my head to see who had walked into the house I instantly knew it was him.
How can I not
think that Wendy somehow knew seeing this guy would just make my day and pulled him in? It turns out he'll be in town for 2 weeks doing a dance workshop and performance. So we'll have some time to catch up. I'm so happy, he was a year ahead of me and we lost touch when I graduated but I always regretted it sice he is just such a nice interesting person. So how cool is that?
Okay RR: nothing to report. It never occured to me to have monthly goals so I didn't.
This month I think I'll be focussing more on the weight training than the running though I'll try to keep up with both. I just HAVE. TO. LOSE. THIS. PREGGO. WEIGHT! and running was not doing it fast enough alone.
Eks and Monikita -
s for you both.
cReb - those newborn pictures were amazing
! Really really beautiful. You are definitely on the right road. Fo' sho'!
All the pictures of costumed cuties were great BTW, I finally got around to going back to the Oct. thread and checking them all out.
Alrighty, time to get my costume on for the final party of the season! And then on to Thanksgiving-Christmas-New-Years insanity!
