When I go away on business, I enjoy alone time in my hotel room but I really love calling home and giggling over Skype with the boys. Sweet.

Labor Day Weekend

A very busy weekend for sure. Why do I over plan? Why?

Saturday morning: Ran a 10K. Who'd have guessed I'd pay to run 6.2 miles on purpose? I did it, I ran the whole way in 1:03. For me, this is success. Of course, by late afternoon, I felt pretty sore. Here's Amy and I posing with our cheesy ribbons.
Saturday afternoon: Went to Aladdin with the kids. A musical that the kids loved and we grownups could enjoy without cringing. Usually "family theater" is awful. This was not. This was one of the best I've seen at Berkeley Playhouse. Below is Aiden posing with the Genie.
Saturday night: 2 Ibuprofen and passed out.

Sunday morning: Slept 9 and 1/2 hours!! A record. Got the crazy idea to go pick tomatoes on a farm. So we did. We picked tomatoes and peaches and nectarines. Lots.
Sunday evening: Supposed to be at book group. Instead, date night at home. Rented Julie and Julia-loved it.

Monday Morning: Started tomato sauce...

Monday afternoon: Continued tomato sauce...I am covered in tomatoes. So is the kitchen.
Monday evening: Attempted canning of tomato sauce and since it is still Monday evening...barely, I am now reconsidering the effort. Lots of work for four jars of sauce. Did I mention I started with 22 lbs of tomatoes?
