A busy evening.
Abbey is so strong from crew. I really thought that crew would be a sort of wimpy sport till I saw and heard what they have to do every day. What a workout. She rows miles and miles either on the boat or on a machine called an erg (I think that's what it's called?). And then she comes home and eats like a horse.
Have you decided on Halloween costumes yet? I bought the cutest dinosaur costume for Patrick. Yes, I BOUGHT, not made. I don't think I could pull off dinosaur sewing. Andrew thought he wanted to be this Pokemon trainer above and thank goodness I knew better to start working on it, because of course he changed his mind after a week.
This was last year, after Jeff's first marathon. I am reminded of this because our good friend Dave just ran his first and what an accomplishment that is. I remember, as a wife, thinking, OK this is over, now no more 2 hour runs! Dave and his wife have 6 children and I am sure his wife is thinking the same thing. Jeff hasn't run one since, but I have a feeling he will again.
Found this in the garage where the neighbor kids and Andrew play. Isn't that cute?
Last year I noticed 1/2 of my Little People were missing. I searched high and low for those poor guys and couldn't find them anywhere. SOMEONE put them in the Quirkle game, and there they were all year long. Reunited at last.
I have to recover my kitchen chairs that are thread-bare and stained. Why is it becoming more and more difficult for me to make one simple decision? I would go with the same checked pattern, but it has long been discontinued. How boring would that be? Thank goodness I can't. That is just one choice above and it doesn't really match my kitchen but isn't it pretty?
