i am home
walked in the door about 45 minutes ago. downloading, oh, about 46 new podcast episodes and weeding through junk mail before a much anticipated and deserved nap occurs in mere moments.
i have much to talk about and share.
for now let me say that if i thought mousefest put me over the top of the whole “i love you, man!!!!” deal, consider it topped.
- i finished the half. defintiely not at the pace i had begun training for at the beggining of the year, but much better than last year, i did my run 2 minutes, walk 1 for most of the course and have nary a blister. although i can no loinger flex at the hip joints. still.
- friends buy you a dole whip float. good friends sneak you in a side car. REALLY good friends bring you double fly swatter action to keep away rogue bees.
- i got more tidbits, treats, gifts and cards than a girl deserves. just looking over at them now makes me tear up.
- i had a WONDERFUL trip
