Gah, Monday again...  
I can't believe the weekend is over already. Feels like I spent the entire thing doing chores, and still didn't finish all the ones I intended to. PorchSpiders:1, Me:0.

OTOH, two hours of unplanned yardwork both Saturday and Sunday. That's a big part of where my time goes. :(

For some brain-glitchy reason, I went out on Sunday morning and ran in my everyday shoes with the orthotic inserts rather than my running shoes!!! They're both Asics, so I must have gotten confused. Also, morning. \o?

Luckily enough, no injuries or major issues. Possibly even good, other than further pounding those poor inserts (which are overdue to be replaced). I ran 4.7 of the targeted 5.0 miles, with a couple of stops in the last mile. I wish I didn't overheat quite so easily.

In long-term planning, I should be figuring out when/if we can go anywhere this summer and to where... except that the kids' internship/volunteer schedules still aren't squared away. My husband says, "Probably late May" for our son. Given that school ends on June 4th, that is really unhelpful!

All right, back to the grind. I hope you had a more exciting weekend than I did...

Ah, that sounds like a lovely way to spend the weekend!

I was extremely busy this weekend and didn't really have much down time, which I hate. Of course, if I had to deal with porch spiders, I can honestly say that I would have spent my weekend moving out of my house. I absolutely hate spiders. They make me weak with fear and too many of them would overwhelm me. I would be an unhelpful mess :)

Work just seems eternal when you don't rest on the weekends-- mentally rest as much as anything. I know the feeling!

I am sorry yours wasn't so great. I, on the other hand, had an absolutely amazing weekend in Vancouver, BC, and saw One Republic, which is one of my favorite bands.

As for holidays, I think you should come to California before we completely run out of water and the state burns to the ground.

:D I saw the post about the Vancouver trip! I missed my chance years ago, when I had tickets and everything but not the passport (new laws for visiting Canada) and it all fell apart.

I already live here in California, so I'd like to go somewhere else! Depending on the cost and amount of driving. Those trips up to Eugene pretty much sap any road-trip-type energy right out of me. :O

Huh, I thought you lived in Oregon. Guess I was confused.

Well, then. You will be here with me to witness the great California firestorm. :D

:D I'm from Oregon originally, and my family is still up there.

But I've been living in Sacramento since late '87. And I'm _really_ hoping this is not another one of those years where there are so many fires that some of them just have to burn because there aren't enough people to put them out. Yikes.
