Man, I cannot believe I found the thread dangling in last month! There must be some mistake!
Anyway, this past week was very very busy. It seemed like we had a party going on every other day (another one tonight in fact). MIL seems to be doing okay, dh is on his way up tomorrow via air, it seemed like too much trouble for him to drive up with the truck as he can always rent a u-haul if a move is imminent.
I finally got back to the gym yesterday for upper body and some time on the TM. I do not know how you mamas can do long TM runs though. Maybe there just wasn't enough air in there or something but I ran 1.5 and then had to walk. I felt like a complete loser, I was panting like a dog and sweating like a I don't know what, pigs don't really sweat right? Anyway it was gross.
But, the weights went well. I forget who mentioned listening to the podcast of This American Life but I downloaded this week's show and chuckled all the way through my workout. The story about hitch-hiking on Martha's Vineyard really had me nostalgic because I did a lot of that there as a teenager.
Last night we took dd out to this California-style neighborhood which is the hot spot for trick-or-treating and she did remarkably well. I told her that she has the best of both worlds since today and tomorrow she gets to have Day of the Dead too! Lucky monkey!
Today is the Dia de los Angelitos, the day when babies and children who have died are supposed to come back and visit with their families. We've got a pretty nice altar set up, I'll try to post a picture later. I just hope ai can get a little quiet time to meditate on Wendy's presence today at some point.
Okay, time to run!
