Ok, what I really want is soup weather. (I love soup so much I even eat it at restaurants when it’s hot out, but I don’t make it unless it’s cool outside.)
So far, Labor Day weekend has been pretty great. We’ve been really busy and had some fun as a family and the boys also got to play with friends. Now we need to buckle down and get ready for the first day of school. Gulp!
Saturday morning was spent doing chores and moving the contents of Jones’ room down to the playroom. All that’s left at this point is the lego table, dresser, desk, and his bottom bunk. By Wednesday morning, it needs to be down to just the dresser, desk and a mattress so that we can get his floor repaired and refinished.
Saturday afternoon we got rewarded for our hard work with an afternoon on the Potomac River. Friends of ours own a boat and they invited us along on what turned out to be a very fun day: boating, swimming, and being pulled behind the boat on a raft. What’s not to love?
Yes, even I went in the water.
It was an absolutely wonderful day!
Sunday was more of the moving of things. Next up is moving all my china to my basement. Thankfully both boys got invited to friends’ houses, so no one was in my way during my 5000 trips up and down the stairs. I’m so looking forward to the repairs being done.
I did manage to get a run in on Sunday and it pretty much was the definition of suck. My legs were tired from all the trips up and down the stairs + it was hot and muggy. I ran a pace that should have been easy, but I felt like I was sprinting. 3 miles and I was pretty much done. I keep telling myself my cardio fitness will come back, but it’s taking it’s sweet time. Ugh.
I signed up for the first of my 5 halves this fall, 45 minutes before the price went up LOL. Guess I should start putting in some miles.
So, Virginia, I’m ready for it to feel like fall. How ’bout you help me out???
