Yesterday, I attended a PEO officer's workshop in Denver. It was good to get up to speed and get all rallied 'round the mission. I've served as chapter President before, but that was years ago. Now, after the workshop, I don't feel like such a noob.
I rode to the workshop with the treasurer. It was nice getting to know her a little better. Among other things, we found out that we were both
In other newbie news, these last couple of weekends, while going traipsing around in these different wilderness areas, we got to thinking about geocaching. Did I ever mention my first ever blog friend, Aile? No?
I "met" Aile shortly after I started blogging in 2004. She visited my blog and left me my first ever blog comment! (the rush, remember it??). Anyway, we became blog pals for years, and had much in common. She lives in the midwest and was a stay-at-home-mom of Richie, who is the same age as Meego.
She has since fallen off the blog wagon, but thankfully we've stayed internet pals mainly through facebook. Not long ago, Aile and Richie took up geocaching. I remember thinking it sounded like fun and maybe something to try sometime. As a bonus, the activity enabled Aile to lose 50 pounds AND quit smoking! Two things that don't typically coincide! She said it gave her something to do other than sit and eat and smoke. Just going out and walking wasn't desirable enough.
Anyway, the fact that it's an outdoor activity plus it helped a good friend become healthy while spending quality time with her kid, gave geocaching a warm fuzzy place in my heart. Honestly, though, I'd not thought about it much until these recent outdoor excursions. I have since registered at the site and got Magnum to go along on the hunt with me today while we took China for her beauty walk.
This is a small one, but pretty low difficulty to find.
I may be hooked now after this stellar success.
