okay jennifer, here's your chance to name that tune...;)
josh and rue loaded up and took off for denver sunday morning. we went home to see them before they left but didn't make it. i wasn't sure what time they were leaving but we wouldn't have made it anyway, mom said they left around 6:00. they got there last night around 12:30 our time i think, safe and sound. from the message josh sent me last night, the trip was beautiful with only one road block -- rue left her phone in topeka at the motel! hopefully she will get it back.
josh starts school next week. they are spending some time with his good friend dayton and his family right now. it's good to know he'll have someone he knows close while he's getting used to the city. hopefully we can visit before they leave denver, i've wanted to go there since his first trip a few years ago. the pictures were gorgeous.
on another note, i signed up for my first half marathon yesterday. the deadline for registration was getting closer and i couldn't put it off any longer. when i hit submit, i thought i would be sick...it's just one of those things you think you can't do until you actually do it. there's gonna have to be a trip back to the ol' doc before april because with that crowd of people, i'm sure to have a major meltdown. ;) keep your fingers crossed that i can stay healthy and injury free, this is something i am really looking forward to accomplishing. i will be recruiting running buddies to help me along the way so if you see me coming, you may want to have an excuse ready. wait, i forgot, i don't take excuses...that's for you jennifer, ha!
Our siblings push buttons that cast us in roles we felt sure we had let go of long ago - the baby, the peacekeeper, the caretaker, the avoider.... It doesn't seem to matter how much time has elapsed or how far we've traveled. ~Jane Mersky Leder
