The morning was fine. Cooper and I walked with my middle niece then went and picked up my mom to go to a picnic. OMG... BORING! I knew that it was not going to be a crowd I could really relate to, but it was beyond tedious. It was a crowd of homeschoolers, so there were hordes of screaming children of various ages, and a bunch of moms (though there was one dad). I know they had to chat about the trials and travails of homeschooling their kids, but that is all they talked about for three hours. Ugh. I am not much for socializing to begin with... add in a topic that has no relevance to my life and time dragged. Eventually I just told mom it was time to go. The girls didn't want to leave, but I coerced them into the car and we finally left. I didn't make it home until after 5pm. When I did get home I just chilled out with my dog and read for a while before grabbing a quick dinner and taking Cooper out for a walk. When we got back from our walk I hopped on the elliptical for 15 minutes, because I knew that would make me sweat. Walking the dog just doesn't make me sweaty or feel like much of a workout. When he feels like running that is another matter, but he hasn't wanted to run much lately.
It really feels like Fall these days. I wore my fleece jacket today for most of the day. It was a touch too much, but when I took it off my arms got cold. I have to start thinking about cold weather running gear if I am really going to keep running all Winter like I want to. Eek! Winter? I am actually talking about Winter sports with friends already. Sigh.
