Lazy Friday

Husband is off today & Monday- second four day weekend in a row! YAY! He got all of the kids off to the bus & crawled back into bed with me. My very own hero. Getting up on his day off. He knows I hate getting up at the crack of dawn. So we got to sleep in late. Or take an early nap, depending on which one of us you're talking about.

We took the Metro into DC to pick up his race packet. Sunday morning is the Marine Corps Marathon & he's running. He says his goal is to get over the bridge before it reopens at 1:45 pm. It'll still be six miles after that.

The goody bag was pretty full already, but the vendors gave out a whole buncha other stuff too. Water bottles. T shirts. Socks. Ipod/mp3 armband holders. Sport Jelly Bellies. Fortified sport drinks. Power bars. Smuckers jelly. Pens. Medicine. Listerine (so your spouse will kiss you after you've crossed the Finish Line). We aren't going up for the pasta dinner tomorrow. The kids and I have a Halloween party at church & Husband plans to go to bed early.

I got sooo motion sick on Metro on the way home.*green & sweaty the whole way* Goodness, it was horrible. I have inner ear problems on one side, and that doesn't help anything but I perked up a little when Husband said he didn't feel too great either. Misery loves company. I had plenty of time to get better on the car ride back home. Rain had been spitting on and off all day but was now pouring down. Thus traffic was lovely. We both had plenty of time to recover.

Good luck to your hubby.

Glad you're both feeling better. When I was a kid I got motion sickness, mostly in the car, trains and buses didn't bother me and short taxi rides were okay. But traveling long distances in a car was dangerous.

Sounds like a delightful Friday!! Todd and I took a bunch of girls bowling last night in the pouring rain. Blech! Then they all spent the night. Nobody slept. lol

Good luck to your husband. Let us know how he does!
