Here is a mini disco ball on a table full of abandoned cups.
So, I went to Coadster's cross country meet today. I know it makes me a dork, but it got me all excited about racing. Her team is huge and great and really supportive of each other. Before the race started, all 70 girls got in a big circle to help each other gear up. One of the moms and I double dog dared her husband to get in the middle of the circle and do the worm or break dance. He said he didn't think it would be worth the therapy bills he'd need to pay for his daughter. I guess he had a point.
My friend G., the activities director and my link to society will be out of town this weekend. She's always great about getting me out of my house and makes plans every Saturday. She's really good for me that way. As I've said before, most of my interests are pretty solitary endeavors and I do need my alone time, but when I don't make myself socialize, I live in my scary brain too much and it makes me even weirder. Who even knew that was possible? Right now, I don't have any social plans for this weekend. If someone calls or texts me and asks me to do something, I'll definitely consider it. I just haven't actively sought anything out is all.
I think I'll use this weekend to regroup and take care of my house, both literally and in that literary gothic sense where it represents my psyche. Which is just a fancy way of saying I'll be cleaning and working on my shit. Coadster is babysitting for my blogging buddy at Creekside Review on Friday night. Stinky and I will have some alone time together, but we haven't figured out exactly what we'll do with it yet.
I'll have to wake up early on Saturday morning to get Stinky to her job and Coadster to cross country practice. Then I'm going to try to ride a hilly route some of my cyclist friends told me about. It should be really pretty this time of year too. I need to be back to get Coadster from cross country practice to the same job where Stinky will be working. Then later in the afternoon, I'll do my 6 mile run.
Saturday night is an open slate. I'll let you know what I do with it. Finally, on Sunday I plan on doing my first lap swim. I will definitely start out very slowly and work on increasing my distance throughout the Winter.
And what of you, good blog readers? What are your weekend plans? Will you be charging into the middle of a group and break dancing, or taking baby steps before you start really going the distance?
