Sunday was a much better day than Saturday. I tried to get some quality relaxing in, as there's quite a bit of meeting related stuff going on during Senior Week, including a big meeting I have to RUN, and I felt like I needed a little post-Finals Week mental recovery before facing that. Did some more clutter reduction. You can now see the top of my dryer again! (There had been an accumulation of canvas bags from various outings, gloves, tablecloths, cloth napkins, etc. hanging out on top of it.) I have also come to the conclusion that we have an insane quantity of cloth napkins crammed into our tablecloth area....and a lot of the time, we use paper towel instead of napkins of any kind. I'm trying at the very least to get this area organized. 10-12--Read some of What Happened to Anna K. Lunch. 1:30ish--Child and I took dog for a walk. For part of this walk, Child and I were walking with our arms around each other going "Left, left, left-right-left. Left, left, left-right-kick-ball-change!" It was our dancer march! The dog probably thought we were crazy, but he also didn't care much because he was outside with his people and that makes him so happy. 3ish--Read The Last Apprentice: Clash of the Demons with Child in our new finished basement. 5ish--Husband came home from his 5-day business trip to Dallas!!! We all ran upstairs from basement to greet him. Dog was particularly joyous, so we tried to match the dog's level of enthusiasm by running around the room and jumping our paws up on husband as well. Dinner. 7:30ish--Put in my 7 miles on the tm, much of it at 6.4 mph. 3 weeks to comp! My bunion bone on my left foot was bothering me a bit post-run...and yes, I do wear good running shoes. I think my feet are just of the opinion that jogging and latin dance are both high-impact activities, and that maybe I could take up something like chess or yoga. I pointed out to feet that I spend hours and hours reading and writing, and that they get to be barefoot or just in sneakers or slippers a lot compared to the feet of women who wear pumps to work every day. Feet were apparently unimpressed by this logic. Oh, I read some of the book that people were talking about on another thread both during and post run: Dance with Me: Ballroom Dancing and the Purchase of Intimacy. It's a good read so far! There are a couple of things I wish the author had done differently, but I am definitely enjoying it. The photos by SDSalsaguy definitely enhance the book in a major way. My own teacher and his partner are pictured on the book jacket spine, and within the book! [My critiques: I wish the book were a little more interdisciplinary, and looked at things from both a sociology angle and a psychology angle, and I wish there were a little more quantitative data to supplement the qualitative data she gets from her 60-ish interviews. This would give me a little more context for understanding whether the stories of people like Phoebe and George are typical. But I'm also only a little more than 25% of the way through the book, so perhaps some of these desires will be met later.] Child and Husband had had a major argument while I was running. I told them that I expected them to go more than 3 1/2 hours before having an argument. Favorites and least favorites. Shower.
