BUT, all is not lost. I ran a half-marathon last Saturday with my mom. (Me! Non-athletic, uncoordinated, Walker's World me!) We ran it in about 2 hours and 24 minutes. And we finished! Hurray!
Aaaannd, this weekend, we celebrated Mom and Dad's 30th wedding anniversary with a really nice dinner at Punderson Manor, followed by a surprise party back at their house.
So that's what I've been up to... just a bunch of living. I'll get back to writing again someday.
