Sorry I haven't been posting as much. I seem to always think of it when I'm at work, and I really don't think it's a good idea to be posting at work. :)

The weather has been weirdly cool here. It's kind of nice but sometimes it's actually too cool. It's been fabulous running weather though. And since I am getting full-swing into marathon training, that's a good thing.

The CSA has been giving us prolific vegetables (see my other blog) and we've been trying lots of new fun recipes.

Todd and I went up to Lake Erie for a brief visit last weekend. It was very short but fun to get away. My favorite part is always stopping at the winery on the way up. :) (surprise, surprise)

The dogs have actually been showing some improvement lately. We had a really great walk the other day and they've been pretty good. Now if we just get Abbey to stop barking at the cats when she even hears a peep out of them through the basement door...

so glad it's Thursday, almost Friday! i love weekends. :)

I just finished getting my closet (somewhat) in order. Finally, my laundry basket and all of my shoes are inside of it! There's always more to do but the house feels much more organized and I feel more settled in now. The biggest relief will be on Monday when the Salvation Army comes to pick up our garage-load of stuff! yay.

Have a great weekend!

The Long Weekend is Over

The three-day weekend was so nice. We got a ton of stuff done around the house, and the bulk of the mess is now put away! Organization is back in my life. :)

I ran in the Firecracker 5 mile race in Granville on Saturday morning and got a new PR - 41:14. (It wasn't chipped, so it was actually a little faster than that.) Then we went to Mary's for a lovely little breakfast and then hit the parade. I got to catch up with all kinds of old friends - Mary and Anselmo, Kim and Cory, Maria and Chuck, Heather and Adam. Fun times! And then after the parade, we went to my mom and Frank's and celebrated my mom's birthday. (I won't say which one!) Both of my brothers, their wives and their sons were there. it was so great to see everyone!

Now it's back to real life. :)
