Sorry for the lack of posts. For the past couple of weeks, I’ve been semi-sick with a cold, which has been extremely annoying. I’m to the point where I almost hope I get full blown sick in hopes that it can finally go away then. These 30-degree temps at night haven’t been helping me feel any better. I’m not ready for winter to begin the first week into October.
Kristy did awesome in her half-marathon last Saturday in Akron. She finished in 2:22, which is quite a bit under the 2:30 pace that she targeted with her training program. She is fairly happy with the result, and is already looking forward to her next one, which is still to-be-determined.
I’ve been trying to catch some of the baseball playoffs, though everything is a disappointment so far except for Tampa Bay. As much as I wanted CC & the Brewers to do well, I oddly ended up feeling slightly happy when I heard that he choked again. It would be a hard pill to swallow if he carried the Brewers on his back to the World Series after not showing up for the Indians last postseason.
Most of this weekend is going to be spent painting in the basement. Our basement is currently an eye-hurting shade of fluorescent green as it was apparently a children’s play area for the previous owners. And with the first brush of paint, the conversion of the basement to man cave will begin. I already have what Kristy has termed the “man room”, a large 4th bedroom which I’ve taken over as my office/tv room, but it’s time I add a cave to my collection. She can have the rest of the house.
