1- The dress I wanted to return is getting returned. Finally got in touch with customer service and the ‘Final Sale’ was a mistake and they sent me a return label. WHEW.
2- Cameron got picked for “All-Star” soccer! Super exciting and I am proud of him. Even if it means two games this weekend . . .
3- But I won’t be at the first because I am ‘racing’ a 5K tomorrow. I am hoping to do better than this race which I ran in September at ~9:00/mi pace. It was in the mid-80s and humid that day, so hopefully at least tomorrow’s weather will be better?
I would love to approach an 8:30/mi pace for the 5K. Funnily enough that’s also what I was aiming for in Sept (but I didn’t do achieve it). I have not decided if I will wear my super shoes. Maybe.
4- Annabel is performing in Beauty and the Beast on Sunday night after months of rehearsals. (She is in the ensemble — with roles from ‘sausage curl girl’ to ‘a napkin’ in Be Our Guest. Can’t wait to see this!)
5- BLPA Sesson 1 was a lot of fun! We had a lively group of incredibly smart + accomplished women who love to think about all things planning (and planning-adjacent!). I’m really happy I decided to put this together.
6- I did not complete (or post) my 2023 Reading List and have decided I’m going to keep it fairly minimal anyway (ie, not migrate all my prior ideas but keep it more fluid). That said, I am crushing my reading goals of a novel every 10 days and 2 non-fiction picks/month — about to start my 4th novel. Thinking about The Measure by Nikki Erlick but I also have The Lincoln Highway at home already so that might be the more convenient option. I’ve gone back to reading almost entirely on paper and I love it.
