It's Thursday once again, and that means it's time to share three things.
1. Last evening Chesapeake Bay Daughter asked if she could host her entire class for a party next weekend. Of course she can. Nothing makes me happier than for Daughter and/or Son to have friends over; I really do enjoy it. Upon further reflection, however, I realized that would be the Friday before my very first
1b.) To recap: This 47-year-old (along with 40,000 others including an 80-year-old from Gwynn's Island) will struggle through a 10K at the crack of dawn on Saturday. After that abuse, she will fight the throngs to locate her car, drive the hour home and host a party consisting of approximately 18 teenagers, which does include boys. Serenity now.
2. My mother wrote a great post (complete with vintage 1970s photos) on Baby Sister. Click here to read it. She left out the part where I was a very caring, responsible babysitter with the exception of only a few unfortunate incidents.
3. Speaking of my mother and Baby Sister, they and former Mathews/now Outer Banks resident Ann Marie, will also participate in next weekend's race. Thanks to the magic of Facebook I've discovered several high school friends will be there too. CB Mother will walk. Baby Sis will run since doing a 10K is like breathing air to her. Ann Marie and I, on the other hand, are new to all this (although AM recently completed an 8K). We will be grateful to finish (a) alive; (b) without walking; (c) with crab hats intact. I have yet to run a race with Ann Marie that we were not wearing crab hats. Any other way just wouldn't be civilized.
3b. We seriously contemplated having shirts made that said, "We put the FUN in dysfunctional." That is my new favorite slogan and actually would make a great title to a book.
OK, there you have it. Still talking about the 10K and all the associated fears about finishing
Now it's your turn to share three (more or less) things.
