When Michigan changes seasons, the weather gets really wacky. A couple of days ago, it was 98 degrees outside. Today, the high was 61 degrees! I was actually pretty excited to go for a run this morning--five miles at an easy pace in this nice fall weather.
I wore long sleeves to run in for the first time this season! Maybe it was a little premature for the long sleeves, but I was just too excited. After getting the kids on the bus, Jerry and I watched an episode of Breaking Bad (season one--I'm trying to get him hooked on it). Then I headed out for my run.
I did my usual loop of the neighborhoods. I think I lost my mind today while I was running, though! There is a particular peninsula that I've been running ever since I started to run in 2010. It's a perfect 5K from my house, around the peninsula, and home, so I've done it a million times.
Anyway, I ran that as part of my five miler today, and I must have been really lost in my thoughts. I ran all the way to the tip of the peninsula, where there is a tiny loop turn-around, and instead of running along the other edge of the peninsula, I ended up going back the way I came. I got almost halfway home when I realized that I was doing an out-and-back rather than looping the peninsula. I know this is all incredibly boring, but it felt so strange when I realized my mistake. I was really confused for a minute!
After I showered and dressed in a sweatshirt and jeans(!), Jerry and I went to the mall. I needed some new make-up (foundation) from Macy's. This is pretty pathetic, but the last bottle of foundation I have was from when my sister treated me to a mini makeover in July 2010 (as a gift for losing 100 pounds). That's how infrequently I wear make-up! I'm finally down to the last of the bottle, so I wanted to buy the same stuff that Jeanie bought me back then.
I brought the bottle with me, and just asked the salesgirl for the same thing. When she rang it up, I was a little shocked for a minute that it was $30! But considering it lasted me over three years, I guess it's a bargain ;)
We walked around the mall for a little while, people-watching, and then headed home. We have to go to the wedding rehearsal at 4:30, and then dinner at his parents' house afterward. I hope that Jerry's parents do something to acknowledge his birthday. Tomorrow, he turns 33, but his birthday is obviously going to be overshadowed by his sister's wedding. So I'm hoping they have a cake or something for him tonight.
Noah has been really excited for Jerry's birthday. He's so sweet! He was wondering if we could go out to breakfast or something to celebrate (as a surprise for Daddy), since the wedding is tomorrow afternoon. That's probably what we'll end up doing. We have a busy day tomorrow, so I may not get a chance to write. Have a great weekend!
