Another 3 Miler and Reflections

Last night, we got some impressive thunderstorms and torrential rains (it was awesome -- I LOVE a stormy night!) -- so that meant that this morning's run was like running in a steam room at the gym. The temps were cooler, but the humidity was in the 90th percentile, so the air was practically drinkable.

But while the humidity definitely made it tough, the morning's overcast sky actually felt like a reprieve. It's amazing how much difference small details like that can make, so really, the 3 miler wasn't that bad.

Anyhoo, this afternoon, we're off to our friend's annual 4th of July Party (on the 3rd this year) where we will engage in all the fun B's of the holiday: BBQ, drinking Beer, and Blowing shit up! This year, actually, will be much more tame than years past since our friends who host have moved to a different neighborhood and their new home is not as conducive to TNT. Probably just as well: It was likely that sooner or later Jerry was gonna lose a thumb in a fireworks' explosion.

Funny side note, I was scrolling through pics on my laptop's hard drive, and I was looking at our pics from last year's Independence Day celebration when I was about 8 and 1/2 months preggo:
Hard to believe that a year ago, this little ankle biter hadn't even been born yet!


Hope everyone is enjoying their holiday weekend! Be safe -- don't blow your own thumbs off -- but have fun (i.e., get plenty of those other two B's in!)!
