This weekend I:
-took in all things Halloween from outside. See you next year, light up spiders and animatronic spooky tree.
-walked in memory and honor of my father in the Pancreatic Cancer Purplestride 5k in Philadelphia. We had an impressive team of 24, and raised over $1600 in his name. It was a beautiful day, but one filled with mixed emotions from me. I hated that we were there, yet I wouldn't be anywhere else. I wore my crocs, which seemed to beguile some family members. Sneakers feel too heavy since my normal shoe attire is flats. Besides, if these crocs can walk for 12 hours straight while on vacation, then they can surely handle 3.2 miles.
-ate some fabulous Mexican food that, although i've only eaten at this restaurant once, i've been talking about the entire year since. It didn't disappoint. Flautas Mikey-you, me, my stomach-it's a date.
-attended a comedy show after said fabulous Mexican food. Tell me, comedians, why must everything be about the size of your you know what. Three comics, three people insisting theirs is bigger and how much the ladies love it. Give me some word play over that kind of humor anyday.
-went to the Wilma Theatre for the play Our Class. Intimate theatre, fabulous and haunting performances. I like this venue. Must see what their subscription looks like.
-finally have heat! Yes, for the coldest week of the year thus far, we had no heat. We had to wait for the duct work to be made for the new energy efficient system S put in. The duct work is bigger than the system. Seriously, it's a behemoth, but it's a silent behemoth. And hopefully a money saving one as well.
I need a weekend to recover from my weekend. What about you, was your weekend jam packed or spent in your jammies?
