A Little Countdown Trivia...

As I'm about to wrap up the workday at my first job (today is a LONG two-job day), I thought I would post some Countdown Trivia for all of you:

8 months until Christmas Eve

78 days until our wedding!!!

8 days until the Indy Mini (I will now take a short moment to solicit your prayers that I do not fall ill anytime between now & then or post-race). Danke!

And only 6 1/2 hours until my weekend starts!

This weekend Mike & I have decided to try not to let our TO DO lists command all of our time. We have a short list of MUST DO's (that he unfortunately left with me & I keep adding to) & then we are going to try to relax. Ahhh...what a thought! He's just trying to keep me healthy. I did some Internet research (about 15 minutes of scanning articles) & discovered that there can be a link between intense exercise & suppressed immunity. Therefore, Mike & several of my family members are convinced that the long Saturday mileage is making me sick. Tomorrow we are only scheduled 7 miles & I intend to complete them & then take it easy. Maybe take a nap (or try to - I'm not much of a napper). We'll see how it goes.

What are your weekend plans? Anybody doing anything fun or out of the ordinary? ;-)

Hope you can take it easy, girl! Surprising how hard it is to truly relax the older we get, eh? Maybe retirement will be relaxing. :)

The weather is simply perfect here today and tomorrow so though we haven't made any firm plans yet I'm sure we'll be spending lots of time outside!

Wow, I just realized your countdown said only 8 days left until the mini-marathon! I'll say a quick prayer for you and this final week of preparation!
