I'm going to row again. All because of this. I got inspired.
That's the latest, anyway.
Filling you in, in reverse order, on my life over the past six months...and trying to keep it brief...here's what's been going on...
|Miss C kept changing her mind on what to be. I don't even know what she ended up trick-or-treating as, but she got this great big sucker that made her very happy. X was a faceless, voiceless shadow, AKA Chromeface. G was Fizz the Tidal Trickster and Q-Man was a ninja...like many other fourth graders at his school.|
|We hit up the very expensive, local pumpkin patch. Lots of bouncy castles and slides for the low, low price of $10/30 minutes per kid. And pumpkins were NOT included. It's such a racket. But the kids had a BLAST!|
|A few days before Halloween, she got an Elsa dress that, while delightful to twirl in, did not make the trick-or-treating cut.|
|We played CandyLand and got an Anna costume...that also did not make the Halloween cut.|
|We went to the beach to see the sun set, ran races at the San Francisco Zoo, and did speed work at the local track.|
|We also did some hiking in a princess nightgown that was worn for 5 (not kidding) consecutive days.|
Ragnar Napa Valley happened...
|I was invited to drive for Team You're the Wine that I Want. It was so much fun. Kind of more fun that running it probably would have been...at least for me! Cathryn, Jen, Jess, Sabrina, Amanda, Janet, Jim, Matt, Rich, BT, and another Jen (?) took me on a fun trip that involved too many inside jokes and a triple espresso. I can't wait to do it again :)|
What's the best thing that's happened to you in the last 6 months?
