I'm BAAAAACK... for a day

We got in last night after 9pm.  I got up this morning and ran 10 miles with MTT.  And as much as I miss T, I'm going to sleep in tomorrow.  Why is that you ask?  Well.... I'm leaving for the beach tomorrow.  Crazy. Talk.  My dad called and practically begged me to bring the kids down.  He has NH Lymphoma, and right now, he's feeling really good.  I've learned something of this disease, and that is that you never know when he WON'T be feeling well, so when he asks, we go.

In the mean time, we had a great time in D.  The kids were SUPER surprised.  We saw princesses and pixar characters, and aliens... and rode rides when we wanted to, and walked around when we had to, and stood still... not too often.  We had a great time, and are planning our next trip already.

And Jen, at Setting You Free sent me a package, which was waiting for me this morning with my mail...  so I changed out of my Cheetah Skirt and put on my lime and yellow outfit!  How GREAT are those socks???  Gosh, I look tired.  And tan.  This photo was taken around mile 4ish.

Anyway, todays 10 miler was longer than last weeks 14 miler... I swear.  We did our usual loop down and through the city and by the last 1/2 mile I was tired.  I suffered through though, and had a chance to chat it up with Pants Guy and SpeeDee after the run today at the social.  Pants Guy is hilarious, trying very hard to talk me into running the Patrick Henry Half Marathon.  Why?  I don't know why I would do it.  It's hot.  Miserable.  Hilly.  13.1 miles of pain.  Yea, sounds fun eh?  I'm keeping it in the back of my mind of things to do the last Saturday of the month.  In the VERY back of my mind.

And finally -- Disney is EXHAUSTING.  I've never experienced anything quite like it.  Ever.  Too tired to tell you all about it, so here are a few more pics....
