I started to run out of time again to get my workout done, so I decided to go for a walk instead of doing the elliptical. If I walk, I usually don't sweat too much and wouldn't need a shower before picking up the kids from school. I was right. I didn't sweat, but it sure was cold out there! The wind is not friendly. I had my winter coat, hat, and gloves on and had to work at my walk against the wind. It took me 19 minutes for a one mile walk. Not fast, but not slow either.
The cold walk has convinced me that the twins are not going to the annual Halloween parade through our small town. The kids get dressed up and walk 4-5 blocks to the fire station and get some candy and a free hot dog. I don't see the point this year. They would have to wear winter coats over their costumes. There's not even a free movie this year. I'm kind of bummed about that one. That's usually fun, but we also have activities for just about every kid tonight: High school band is in the parade (two kids in band, another carrying the banner), one has basketball practice, two have play practice, and one has a dance to go to. Now, my ten year old has convinced us to let a friend spend the night. I can't keep it all straight. At least all of the practices and stuff are at the high school. That makes it a little easier.
