Last week since I walked with Nancy on Thursday instead of spin class (we did Thursday because she had a hair appointment on Wed.) I decided to run on Friday. Walking doesn't often feel like exercise to me, so I wanted to get a run in to replace the missed spin class. This week Friday will be my rest day.
I don't actually see much difference in my body since I started doing this. I've dropped a couple pounds, but nothing like I expected. I expected once I started running again that the 10 pounds I gained over the summer would just fall off. It hasn't happened that way, sadly.
This weekend I'm going to eastern Washington. I haven't been over there in a long time to just see my parents. We went over in August for our vacation, but we didn't spend any time at my parents' house, although, we did see them when they came to the lake with us for a few days.
Anyway, I'm going over with my sister, Nancy (and my kids) but we decided this weekend because of the Tri-Cities Wine festival that is on Saturday. We're going to go with our other sister Barbara, who lives over there. I'm hoping that it will be fun. Nancy and I always have fun, but sometimes Barbara can be challenging. I'm sure, though, with enough wine, it'll be a grand time. ; )
Funny thing is, I'm the only one that really drinks wine. Nancy does a little. It's not her favorite thing, and I think she does with me because I like it so much. I don't think Barbara does at all, but I don't hang out with her that much, so maybe she does now.
Maddox brought home his school pictures this week. He was so proud of them, it was the first thing he showed me when I picked him up from daycare. I can't look at the picture without laughing. It's so cute, and soooo Maddox. =)
My parents' house is truly one of my favorite places in the world (not that I've been anywhere). Being away from the city is soooo nice. I can't even tell you how much I enjoy my time there. I really should make more of an effort to go over more often.
How can that not be peaceful? No noises except birds, the occasional, very distant, sound of a train, and in the summer sprinklers.
