Silver Liningness Sunday
It was so nice to have a little break from the usual work/school grind and have all of the kids' smiling faces around the house.
Throw in a fun, charitable 5k and a colonoscopy, and who could ask for more?!
The local newspaper snapped this pic of Wolfgang and some Turkey Trot also-rans. Wolfgang ran with a few of his running buddies from high school. He finished at just over 20 minutes after not running for about a month and while nursing a slight cold.
I wish I could run at his bad day pace on a good day.
Although there was a bit of a break in classes, the actual work didn't slow all that much. We're in the final push before the end of the semester, so lots of final projects and looming final exams. The nice thing is that the light at the end of semeseter 1 tunnel is getting bigger and bigger, and I'm pretty happy with where I'm sitting. I wasn't sure what going back to school would be like after so LONG, but it's been fun and I'm holding my own pretty well.
I also realized I've made a few school friends. Even some classmates who rubbed me the wrong way in the initial weeks have turned out to be fun, and I find myself hoping they are in some of my classes next semester.
The house is currently very quiet except for the barking, sexing toads. The menfolk all went to the shooting range while I finished some schoolwork. Now that's done so I think I'll take China for her beauty walk.
Here's another newspaper photo from the Turkey Trot - The Flash winning. I saw a bit of a post race interview with him. He led most of the way but was passed at one point by the guy who would eventually take 3rd. Flash regained the lead in the final mile.
"I had to, the crowd was all cheering for The Flash!"
There is something to be said for crowd support.
Thank you to my blog friends, for your support!
