Happy Halloween~~~~

How is everyone? What is everyone doing for Halloween? I didn't purchase any candy at all this year, we get so few kids in my complex that I'm not even going to tempt fate by bringing the candy into the house. Instead I picked up a half dozen Tim Horton's cards that I put 2.00 each on and if we get any kids, they can have a treat at Timmies, if we don't , well then my husband has his IceCaps pre paid for the next couple of weeks.

I'm working today and decided at the last minute to dress up. I didn't have a costume on hand so I decided to go as a Participant. Yes, a participant to a Run. Now because I have a team that does the CIBC Run for the Cure, that's who I'm dressed as this year, but on my waist pack I have my buttons from the Weekend to End Breast Cancer as well.

Tomorrow is November 1st and I'll be getting back on line a ilttle bit more. After doing all of the work for putting the Run on this year, when it was all done and finished with, my husband asked me to give myself a break from the computer. In the lead up to the Run in Septmeber and the early part of October I would be on the computer first thing in the morning, as soon as I got home from work (usually for an hour or two) then again for an hour before bed. I'd get up at 530am adn I'd be back on the computer for another hour.

I totally understood where he was coming from. I was tired of the computer. I didn't want to check e-mail (of which i had four different accounts to check), I didn't want to go on face book, (I got tired of doing updates for the run, the activites, creating events, managing the events etc.) So, after three weeks of being mostly computer free, I'm giong to go back to checking my personal e-mail, to reading the blogs I follow and keeping you all up to date with how I'm doing.

This week got me back into the swing of things. I spent 6 hours in teh pool this week, which I am really incredibly greatful for. It felt so good to get my muscles warmed up and moving in the water. I'm going to try going back to the gym to work out as well. I miss the elliptical, I miss the treadmill and I miss the weights. I'm going to make an appointment with my doctor and get his clearance before I do so but it's been four months since I started working the water. I haven't had my knee go out from under me in all of that time so I think it may be a good time to get going again.

Have a great day everyone! Happy Halloween!

  1. Glad to hear your knee is on the mend! It's funny, I have the opposite problem. I injured myself in the pool and can't wait to get off dry land and into the water :)

    That is a great idea for Halloween.
