I took Riley with me on my run the other morning – huh. Feels like several days ago, but it must have been just yesterday morning. It’s only Tuesday. Shoot me. Anyway, a deer got really close to us. I think he wanted to play. It was cute, but Riley was a little freaked out. The deer was following us down the trail, and Riley kept checking it out over his shoulder, ears pinned back. It eventually ran ahead of us, and he calmed down, but it made for a very exciting morning.
We don’t get out much. Actually, part of why I’ve been MIA is because I did get out over the weekend. Went home to visit Mom and Dad and Corey and Mindy and Mark and Gaby and Candy. Watched a gaggle of six-year-olds play soccer, found that I’m a natural at soccer myself (when one of those six-year-olds is the goalie), picnicked by the lake, played catch, flew a kite, got sunburned, went for a run – and that was all on Saturday. It was a whirlwind weekend, but I got to see everyone (for not long enough, but it was better than not going).
And now it’s the work week, the last week of the fiscal year, when everyone freaks out, and I have to go to DC every day. Here’s hoping next week is better.
