Friday Things

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving; I'm feeling so very happy right now to have this relaxing time off with my family.  The kids seem to have more understanding of the holidays and it just gets better and better every year.  My son was very excited to wear his turkey hat during dinner and mentioned over and over again how thankful he was for his family.  He even ate some stuffing this year!  Usually they only eat the potatoes, cranberries and pie.  Progress! 

Turkey hat!  Stuffing!

Yeah, she's in the 'terrific twos' stage and ate mostly squeezable yogurt.

I'm feeling ready as I'll ever be for the Seattle Half Marathon on Sunday - I can at least check carb-loading off my list of to-do's.  I'm going to try my best to just run and enjoy this last big hurrah before a whole month of down time and holiday celebrations.  I'll at least be aiming to get a course PR which I really hope won't present a problem; Seattle was my first half marathon last year at 2:13:35.  Secretly (not so secret, now) I might just be gunning for around 2:02 for a PR...  The course gets pretty hilly near the end and it's a far cry from 'flat and fast' so I'll play it by ear and hope for the best.

One year ago Sunday - time has FLOWN

OK, I'll get right to my song selection this week; please forgive me for enjoying Chris Brown's music - pretty please?  Whenever I download one of his songs (which has been maaaybe three times) I think of it as supporting all the folks that work for RCA Records.
