Eventful, at least.
Okay, you got me, there’s only one event, but I have things to do!
I spent most of today finding out what I’ll need to be able to do everything this weekend. I got shoe recommendations from my friends online and found stores that carry those brands, I talked to the vet about how to switch Roxy’s medication correctly so we (hopefully) avoid seizures, I picked up the new prescription from the vet, and I figured out how we’re going to get to DC and where I’ll watch the race with Erik and Margaret (who I’ll be emailing soon) and where we’ll meet up with John again for Sunday’s Cherry Blossom 10-miler. So tomorrow, I’ll buy shoes, John will do homework, we’ll pick up Roxy’s new medication, and we’ll run down to DC to pick up John’s race packet. Quick trip. And we’ll drive, of course, not run. That’s for Sunday. And then, we’ll get up absurdly early Sunday morning (so I’m sleeping in tomorrow, but I will run at some point during the day), drive to the nearest metro stop, metro in to the race, have a late breakfast with our friends, and come back and finish our Sunday at home. Hopefully being lazy. And at some point, we’ll mow the lawn. And maybe mulch a flower bed or two. Or not. That doesn’t sound very lazy.
Pardon me while I announce what is obvious by now. John is running in the Cherry Blossom 10-miler Sunday morning, so anyone who reads this and is in the area is welcome to join me, help cheer on John, and then have something to eat. I wish you were all nearby.
John walked in the door just a couple of minutes ago, almost too tired to hug me hello, so I’ve started the rice and I have to go stir up my stir-fry. He needs to eat well and get plenty of sleep for the next couple of days. That should happen every day, for both of us, but you all know how hard it is to make that happen. We’re better about the eating well. Not so good about the sleep.
