Ok, it's been dead silent around here for at least a week, and suddenly everybody's chatty again! What's up with that?
Trying to catch up with personals...
: that the ebola is on the way out!
kerc~Sorry for your crappy night, but I'm glad the day hasn't been TOO bad!
and a big welcome to love2all and holiday mama! Jump right in, it's great here!
mothercat~CONGRATULATIONS and Happy Anniversary! WOW.
32 years is just completely AMAZING!
jenlove~Aww, so sweet!
CT~I've never heard or read much about limiting mileage for younger kids. Obviously, you don't really want them training for long distances, but I don't see too much to worry about at the 5k distance. Weight training is a big concern because of the stress it puts on their growing bodies, but I would think running should be fine as long as there's not TOO much pounding, kwim?
SO much going on the last couple of days. Both good and bad. I scheduled my knee surgery this morning for two weeks from today, the 16th. That leaves me the best part of fall for fun outdoor stuff, and I should be sufficiently healed up for Halloween festivities. I have a weekend with some girlfriends planned this weekend which I've been looking forward to for MONTHS. Well, one of them bailed yesterday and created a bunch of havoc as a result. She did it in a way that really, really pissed me off (including canceling the hotel reservation that was in her name). She did it over email, (I was lucky enough to be online and immediately called the hotel and re-reserved the room in my name (it was otherwise sold out) and she didn't even give a reason. And then she started disappearing off the face of the earth...deleted her facebook account, unsubscribed from a yahoo group that we have, etc. I spent last night alternating between being seriously pissed and writing her off for life and being seriously worried about her (she struggles with depression). The other friend who is going talked to her this morning and I guess it boils down to her husband being an ass and now she MIGHT be going with us after all, but I don't have the full story yet. Just another stressful event to add to my life. I'm torn between wanting her to go so we can get to the bottom of things and have a big heart to heart and kind of not wanting her to go just because of the awkwardness that might be there as a result of the hurt feelings and anger all this has caused. Either way, I'm going to Glenwood Springs and having a fabulous weekend. I'm determined.
Now that I got that long and drawn-out saga out of the way...no running today, but I took DS up for a hike in one of my favorite open space parks. It's absolutely gorgeous right now with the fall colors, and the weather was perfect, at least until we stopped to eat our picnic lunch and a storm cloud blew in! Time for a shower...I'm stinky!
