"Today I am thankful for fabulous visits with best friends."
I spent the day with my sister, we ate lunch, got pedicures, and then spent an hour chatting at Starbucks. It was a really great day. =) I ended up not running, but I was okay with that.
Friday evening we had some friends over. They stayed way too late and then Maddox woke up way too early. I was really exhausted. We have had friends over, I think, every day last week and multiple days the week before. I told Chris that Saturday was a family day and no one was allowed to come over in the evening. I already had plans with my sister, so she was coming.
Well, a friend of ours is going through a break-up. Her boyfriend ended up on my front step Saturday evening wanting to talk. He ended up being there for 3 hours or so. And then Damian asked if a friend of his could spend the night, and we forgot about the no people over thing and told him he could. Ugh!
So Sunday I posted on FB that no one was allowed to come over, and we finally got some quiet time. =)

It was a beautiful fall day yesterday. No rain, and fairly warm. So Maddox and I decided to go for a walk. We took Gizmo (our dog) and headed out. I decided to go on a different street, one without sidewalks, but is not busy. However, Maddox kept getting sidetracked by gravel. He wanted to pick up lots of rocks. And Gizmo had to go potty, so he was pulling one way and Maddox was pulling the other. I finally gave up and went home. We didn't even make it past 2 houses on that street. =) Instead we went to the backyard and I let Maddox wander around back there. I think he had fun. =)

I thought it was really pretty. =)
