Hard to blog..

Cousins playing some tunes

with all that goes on during these last two months. The Holidays are here for most of us. Cooking, cleaning, shopping and of course stressing. For me, it is a time to decides where to go when and who to see. I have my Dads house, my Moms house, My second Dads house...then there is Sebastian's side of the family.. It all get very busy.
We got the kids picture with Santa and a whim. It is pretty cute. I would scan it if I could..my scanner isn't working well. August insisted on wearing his ( Sebastian's) work shop goggles. Luckily he wore them on his head and not over his eyes. It makes for a funny picture thought. Aren't those the best ? The photo memories where one kid is wacky or something happens so that it ends up being memorable, and you have the silly photo to prove it!

I hate to write it but I have mentally and at least for now physically singed up for a 10K in January. It is only 6.2 miles which I have done once before( not a 10K race, but on my own 6 miles). The hard part is I hate the cold. I really can only stand it for a short time and then I must get warm . So running in 38 degree weather isn't fun. I want to do it though. Plus with all this holiday eating and drinking, I hope it will keep me from feeling disgusting come the new year.
So today I did 3.5 miles which was a good run. Unfortunately when you run at 4pm it starts to get dark. It does worry me a bit, but the last part and darkest part of my run is on a busy street so it is lit and there are plenty of cars and people out. Tonight on my run, someone thought it would be cool to honk at me. Now I may have known this person, but who knows. What I do know is it made me jump about 3 feet. So a note for anyone who sees someone they know running..please don't honk. It freaks us out :)
