Stuff I did

Hi Poor Neglected Blog!

Thanksgiving already seems long gone, but I hope that you all had wonderful celebrations with your friends and family.

Here’s what we have been up to:

We ran our first 5K as a family!


It was really fun and I am so proud of everyone. The best part was the couples massage that Tom and I treated ourselves to the following day. If races=massages, then sign me up for more!


I got some Halloween makeup kits on clearance intending to save them for next year, but someone was bored and wanted to try one. Is this creepy or what?


The weather has been crazy. Last weekend, we went from this during the day (in short sleeves)


to this at night (flurries and our first fire of the season!).


I tried my hand at crocheting again, but couldn’t remember how to “turn”, so here is my very long skinny “scarf.” Voila!


Tom found the perfect Christmas sweater (that cat!!!).


Speaking of cats, this guy was 100% anti-cat before we got Charlie. I think that he’s grown on him.


I mean, how could he not? Charlie is the BEST (ALL THE HEART EYES!) even when he drops a dead mouse right next to me (such as he did last week).


OH CHARLIE! Don’t ever change!


It was a nice weekend around here.

There was the usual stuff like…

Stitching… Remind me to tell you about how when I took this picture, I was stitching in the car (because it was too windy outside) and how I forgot to turn off my car lights and how my battery died and how a lady tried to help me but it didn’t work and how my phone battery died then too and how Tom had to drive back from New Jersey to get me. Oops! (I guess you don’t have to remind me now because I just told you.)

I cooked a lot and tried (again) to crochet.

My fingers just don’t get it! I ended up sweaty and nauseous and frustrated. I really hate crochet!

We watched Tom and his brothers run a half marathon. It is always fun to see the guys run through the finish line, but the highlight for the boys was taking the train into the city and having a picnic lunch afterwards. That was pretty exciting.

This week is Rosh Hashanah which = short school week, which = short work week for me! YAY!

Happy Rosh Hashanah! Happy Fall Equinox!

At the finish line.

I feel a little grumpy today.

We had a super busy weekend.

The boys went to a Scout overnighter on Friday.

Tom and his 2 brothers ran a 10-mile race on Sunday.

We hosted a pre-run dinner on Saturday so I spent my day furiously cleaning and cooking. That’s what I get for leaving it all to the last minute.

Race day was chilly. It was hard to keep the boys entertained while waiting at the finish line. “When will they be here?? This is soooo booooring! Can we go on the moon bounce?!! Where aaaare theeeey? What if they already ran past us???” We were excited to see them finally round the corner. It made the whole wait worthwhile!
