OK, really just a “Half Fanatic“. Yep, with that lovely combination of two half marathons in two weekends in May, I qualified for the lowest level of membership, AKA a Neptune.
The best part about it? Now I have my first goal for 2010 – to qualify for the next level. I don’t know if I’ll get beyond the second level anytime in the near future, but I feel the need to at least get out of the bottom level. I guess I have “issues” with just barely qualifying for something LOL.
Shoo and I headed out to Cox Farms today while Jones was at school. We had a blast! This is the first time I’ve gone to a fall festival with only one child (I was HUGELY pregnant with Shoo when we took Jones to his first one). It was so much fun to just focus on him and do the things he wanted to do.
Shoo with one of the many random things he chose to pose with.

Happily, Jones’ school is going on Friday and I got a babysitter for Shoo so that I can go and have a fun time with Jones.
I also got approached by the school librarian at Jones’ school today. She generally doesn’t use parent volunteers, but she’d heard through the grapevine that I might be looking for employment at some point in the near future. She asked me to volunteer as a sub in November while she’s out a couple of days, so that I can get familiar with the library, its catalog, and the procedures. Then she’ll give my name to the substitute coordinator so that I might officially get to sub. A toe in the door! Since I’m not in a hurry to work until Shoo goes to kindergarten and even then, I’d love to just sub out to different elementary school libraries rather than have a real job, this is a perfect start.
Keeping my fingers crossed that the “happy stuff” trend continues this week.
