10 Things I Want to Remember About 10-10-10

10. How cute John looked with a blue Gatorade mustache all afternoon

9. My peaceful house when Kevin and the boys went to the park, the girls had a friend over, and I got to sit and read (once I did the dishes)

8. Bethanie spontaneously wrote out the alphabet on a scrap of paper and the J, N, and Z are backwards

7. I talked to my Uncle Don and was reminded I miss my extended family - we never see each other

6. Joe and a friend and Cayna laughing hysterically at themselves playing Wii - archery and track

5. Cayna setting up a funeral in her room for a Betty Boop doll - she asked to borrow the school chairs and some "beautiful music"

4. It's Columbus Day Eve - which was a bigger deal when I was a kid... poor Chris, are we beginning to forget you?

3. Kevin making a drawing of how we could set up the downstairs if we get brave and move things around

2. Running with my "team" of four neighbors and scheming to incorporate scorpion hunting into our mileage

1. One year, one month, and one day til 11-11-11 --- party at my house!

I was just starting to compose my post about my half marathon "13.1 things I've learned training for a half marathon" when I saw your post... made me laugh! Your list also made me realize my half marathon was on 10-10-10... how did i not catch this before?! it was great by the way... and by great, i mean ridiculously difficult (with 3 miles of rolling hills and 2 killer ones)... but my goal was to finish and finish I did indeed! Just before the race the thought occurred to me that after running this thing, I could be confident that if I was ever being chased by a extraordinarily slow coyote in the woods, I could outrun him AT LEAST 13.1 miles! Hmmm, I think I need better mental training next time!! Oh, and happy columbus day, lest he feel forgotten =)

I can't wait for the party at your house. From 11:00 A.M. to 11:00 P.M., right? I'm there! There is not else I would rather spend 11-11-11 with!!!

yes, the 11-11-11 party sounds like a year out is a good time to start planning for it!
no, i can't believe i haven't seen blueprints of the daring downstairs design (re-)do! (but would like to -- perhaps a future blog)?
yes, i'm still remembering your other blog post about sitting in the car with 4 kids before heading out. am i a whimp feeling similarly with two itty bitties?
no, i haven't started training for my next race and i need to figure out how to do that (with two itty bitties and weather that is turning)
no, not reading along with your syllabus but wishing i would be
yes, my toddler is singing the abc's in his crib INSTEAD OF napping
miss you!
