Sometimes adulthood is a major drag.

But then I get to have ice cream before dinner, and it gets better.

Been a stressful couple of weeks, actually! I'm happily sitting on my couch watching old Parks and Recreations while the laundry spins, no need for any excitement on a Friday night. Let's see, some brief updates ...

My aunt was in the hospital last week and had a stent inserted. She is now back home but apparently experiencing a lot of pain from it, so that's a big drag. Momma has heroically been staying with her while Randy is at work, as have other relatives. It'll be good to see everyone for Christmas, hopefully in fighting shape.

I'm helping plan our graduate cohort's reunion, as I previously mentioned. Insert all the cliches about committees, because there's been a real shortage of leadership displayed ... but for the wage (none) I guess that's to be expected. We have finally wrapped up most of the planning, so now I can shift to anticipating the trip and the company (if you weren't following me then, you can read my archive from September 2009 to May 2011 for more about those folks :)). I am going to drive there, which I have done so little of in the past couple of years. Though the Pennsylvania and Ohio Turnpikes aren't exactly the most scenic parts of America, it should still be lovely.

Per the last entry, I'm keeping up my running routine. Four times a week with 2 or 3 weight routines thrown in on alternate days have been quite therapeutic. On Tuesday I even managed to do both in succession, a rare feat. My fellow gymgoers are mostly sloppy and brusque if not outright rude, as I suppose I should expect for a free office gym in an East Coast city. But one highlight this week was meeting a guy in the locker room as he donned a Michigan bike jersey. We got to talking and he graduated right before I arrived in Ann Arbor, and in an allied degree program. We're multiplying?

I think that's all I have for now. Happy Friday, y'all.
