It's Halloween and I had a ghoulish ride today...Har-har! I'm hilarious. At least the weather was decent with 60 degrees sunny and no wind. I can tell I'm in full winter fitness mode though as it was pathetic trying to do some intervals just keep the legs and blood flowing. My calf is feeling better and I'll probably start my easy 30 minute runs again on Wednesday.
Elena was all excited for Halloween yesterday. She also knows that Halloween means her birthday is just around the corner. She has changed her mind for next year's costume to a witch. I guess she got my planning gene since she already knows what she wants to be. She also start talking about being an archaeologist when she grows up so she can study dinosaurs. She wishes she had a time machine so she could go back and see what color the dinosaurs were. On top of that she starts talking about how an asteroid hit the Earth which killed the plants and killed the dinosaurs because they could find food. It's just amazing how fast she's growing up.
She's staying at my place this weekend so hopefully she won't leave upset. The last time she was cheering that I was going to Europe and she wouldn't have to come over to my house during the week. Good times. She definitely has her opinions which I love even though most of time she thinks I'm too tough on her. It's a fine line on making her independent and tough but not be too hard on her.
We change our clocks back on Saturday night so an extra hour of sleep. Woohoo!! Just means it's going to get darker earlier in the day which sucks but oh well. I still wonder why we still change our clocks. I wonder if it really saves energy. I guess people would revolt in the summer if the sun started coming up 4:30AM.
Beavers play tomorrow still having a chance at the Rose Bowl. GO BEAVS!
