What a week! But I'll get right to the running. Today I did my first run in Olive branch. I walked for a half mile in my new, flat neighborhood and then I RAN for a whole half mile! I determined that running hurt no more than walking, so why not do it. I then repeated for a total of two sweltering hot miles. I even had a negative split. But I MUST return to pre-dawn running. This heat is just too much!
This week our furniture and belongings arrived fairly unscathed. One item was broken (a plate from Mexico) and another cracked, but in the grand scheme of things, all went smoothly. We have stuff strewed out everywhere through the house... but the kitchen, guest bathroom, master bedroom and master bath are perfectly organized. We've gotten so far as to arrange the living room and dining room, but PLENTY of stuff needs to be organized and put away. All in due time! The spare room is a big mess, also. My home office is also running efficiently... although I don't know if my copier/fax/printer/scanner will ever again speak to my laptop... so no printing for now. :(
And our cable/internet/landline is now working, as well as our home security/fire alarm system (once robbed, forever shy).
We are headed back to -- big surprise -- Arkansas this weekend. We will attend a wedding reception (yours truly arranged the 300+ photo slide show), clean our old house, do a TON of professional work (me), do a ton of school work (Chasen), visit some of my clients, sign more stuff at the bank, close on our old house (yay!) and then I'll sit and do more work as Chasen attends a class on Monday evening. Oh my! So no running in Arkansas -- I think I've done enough over the years. Ha! We're going to stay at our empty old house. It's a step up from camping and a step down from a hotel.
Mr. and Mrs. Busy will soon return!
