So, I already told you about the run I did last weekend. But I was actually quite busy all weekend.
Saturday was my quiet day. What did I do? Other than going over to my former roommate Daniel's new place, I stayed home and took care of stuff around there. I cut my hair and did a few other things like that. Nothing too exciting, but it was good.
Sunday is when things got exciting. It started with an e-mail from my friend Josh asking about coming over and swimming that afternoon. Things changed, and he and his wife didn't make it over. But I did spend the afternoon swimming with some other friends at a different pool. With the heat we've had this weekend, it felt great. Sunday night was the usual hanging out with Josh and Joe, then I spent the night at Josh's.
And then Monday after the race I wound up spending a little time at the parade in my town. I've never been before. I stayed for maybe a third of it. I was aiming to head home, but I made it as far as Josh's for a couple of hours. We talked while I rested for the long drive across town to grab lunch and then nap. Oh did that nap feel good.
That evening, I went to Kurt and Kellie's. I have seen them or that gang of friends in forever. It was absolutely wonderful catching up with all of them over good BBQ, some disc golf, and a dip in the pool. Because of the kids, everyone had scattered by the time the fireworks started, but I found a spot to enjoy them before heading home and crashing hard.
As you can see, it was in no way restful. But oh was it wonderful!
