Shreveport here we come!

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2007

Why the exclamation point you may ask?  Well, it is probably my favorite time to be in Shreveport.  The Red River Revel is in full swing.  Great music and arts festival, and the city has done a world of good building the festival plaza and creating a very inviting and fun venue to hear all sorts of good music, eat various foods on sticks (and homemade authentic cajun dishes), and peruse interesting art.

Kind of last minute, but was looking over the music schedule and Saturday’s performers is can’t miss.  Local boys, Trout Fishing in America are on at 6PM and none other than the funkadelic master George Clinton himself hits the stage at 7:30PM.  How can you pass that up?  Hopefully, G & A will appreciate the intro to musical greatness they are about to witness.

Sunday and Monday Runs

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2007

So I ended up skipping the 6:30am run w/ D & A.  I was up, but was busy giving Abigail a bottle.  Carrie would have fed her, but after sleeping only a couple of hours till that point, I decided I needed a little sleep more than a long run.  And the babies are still sleeping for a good stretch from 7-10am or so.  It was nice, but I didn’t get my long run in this weekend.  Oh well.

Sunday went by way too quickly, and instead of eating at a normal hour, I went for a run at 7:45pm.  Well worth it.  Good legs and a fast feeling in the feet.  Ended up with 3.25 miles.  No time, just enjoyed the warm evening air.

Monday was a long day at work.  Nothing earth shattering, just a long day on only 5 hours of sleep.  Not complaining.  5 hours is great for 1 night, but being short on sleep already, its not too great.  On top of that, out building was treated with a brick sealant Friday and my office still reeked of the VOC’s.  Smelled like someone dumped a bottle of paint thinner in the middle of my office.  Carrie had a great day with G & A on her first official day at home alone.  But apparently they had had enough of behaving well by the time I got home and I walked into 2 screaming little ones.  They fed, but were still screaming, so I loaded up the stroller and took G, A, & Boomer for a 1.5 mile walk to give Carrie a chance to eat in peace.  I love that it is getting dark around 7:30 now.  However, can’t wait for it to cool off.  It was still mid 80’s and very humid.  G&A stopped screaming as soon as we hit the street.  They love to move.

When we got home, dropped off G & A and took Boomer for a quick 3.25 miles.  Good run.  Fired up the ipod shuffle for the first time in a long time on a run.  Actually enjoyed listening to music while running for the first time in a long time.
