All for a great cause, but now, 3 days later, I'm still recovering from the run (shin splints) and can't say that I'm "running" out to sign up for my next 5K. I think I'll continue my fast walking. I'm better at that! But who knows, perhaps I'll try to run the Run for Row in 2010, and this time, I will plan to take a week off after that race to recover.

We arrived about 20 minutes before Santa was to start for the day (10:40am). There were 2 people (and I say people, right now) ahead of us. Older women who were obviously "saving" spots for their grandchildren, who were to come. Okay, fine, We're third, how long can it actually take? So Santa comes out and has his seat and all the children in line are excited and antsy to see the fat man and get their sucker. So here goes the 1st family. Geez, I didn't know that people save up their pennies for pictures with Santa, because I swear these people dropped more $$ on pics with Santa than all their Christmas presents this year. One family did 4 "poses" with Santa, so each kid got to be the "star". Then the 2nd family did much the same, only 3 poses this time. Finally, the family who was third in line was up (that's us). I looked at my watch - 11:25am. OY. I looked at the little family behind us and said "I promise we'll be quick. It's just a picture with Santa". She smiled.

As I type this, I've been banished to the computer room (i.e. the Buckeye room) as Mike and Owen play Lego Batman on the Wii for like the last 5 consecutive evenings. I used to like the Lego Batman game, but not when you play it every.single.night. for hours on end. I'm just over it. Can't wait til we get that My Sims Kingdom and any other other Wii games that Santa brings Owen or Mike this year. It's bad enough that it's either Lego Batman or NCAA Football 2008 every.single.night.
Hey, I guess I can do this! LOL
