Home Sweet Home...

I'm finally home and glad to be back. It took quite a while for my return, with a delayed flight causing a missed flight, overnight stay in DC, and then a delayed flight Saturday morning.

I did my run in Central Park finally, on friday before we left. We left the school, went downtown, found a hotel to change my clothes, and I was off. I don't know the mileage (3.5-5), and don't care, but it was an enjoyable run, not worried about anything other than getting back in enough time to catch our flights. It's unbelievable how many runners and cyclists you see there. I'm amazed, and what a blessing the locals have to run in such a cool surrounding.

We had a nice weekend by going to NorthHampton Wines (our favorite place to be when we don't have Grace with us), had some dinner and tasty wine on Saturday. Sunday, we went downtown to watch the USPro Cycling Championship race. It was a blast - first time I attended and 2nd time it was held in our hometown. All the favorites were here, and we were propped up about 6 ft from Greenville's own Big G (aka George Hincapie & David's "man crush" j/k - don't want him mad at me) and the others when the start began. Very cool! David has all the pics, I'm sure he'll post a few. I'm lazy right now and tired...

Look at my little angel in her pigtails...


Gotta go - Clemson football is on and we're winning. Here's our Clemson Fan - so much so, she had to even put her Clemson shirt back on over her Dora gown after we got her ready for bed.

Welcome home!!

Look at how cute Gracie is in her Clemson shirt!!!

My alma mater (an NCAA Division II school) has lost its first two football games this season. Last season, they finished 9-1. I have a feeling it's going to be a rough year. :-(

Welcome home!! ;D ;D LMAO at the fact David has a man crush "man crush". Funny, I was thinking it would be Prince or maybe Tommy Lee? :P

How do you keep Grace's hair under control? Keira's hair always, always, always looks so trashy :-X :-X My little mullet princess :P

Look at Little Miss! She is so sweet! So glad you got to run in Central Park and made it home, even though it sounds like an adventure in itself!

It must be good to be home to the family.

David must have been bad while you were gone for you to go with the "man crush" blast in your first post back. Left the kitchen a mess, huh?

Welcome home! Sounds like a fabulous time!

The little one is adorable! Her hair in the first picture reminds me so much of me when I was her age! Ahhh! :) What a fan she is!

I'm here Mendy :) Thanks for asking...I'm in a big old rutt...with no ambitions right now :-/ I'm reading everyones blog but feeling crappy so not really posting to much.

I was sick for a week and am still reeling from a sinus infection. Had to pull out of my first race and watched my sister rock it out, wondering how I can get so lazy when she is running 5 days a week (singel no kids) and loosing ALOT of weight :-/ Just a pity party I guess....wishing things were different but no way to do it but to get my sorry ass on the treadmill ..wich I hate with a passion :'(

sorry...I went on and on and well...on :p

Thanks again for asking..I'm here :)
