Hi, everyone! I've got a little down time on this beautiful fall morning, so thought I'd check in. I feel like such a fair-weather friend; I'm finding it hard to find time to reply to all the messages. I am still reading, though.

I'm still busy around here, of course. School has started, hubby has started his new job, and my younger boys and I are still adjusting to me not working!

We just got back from a 5K race, just as spectators this time. I had several people from my running class participating so we hung around the finish and cheered them on. It was so fun to see them! We've only got three weeks left with our Run for God class. We run our "graduation" race on October 6th! It's so cool because it's the same race that I ran as my first 5K ever last year. And now I'm going to run it with a class of 60 that I taught! Oh my, what a difference a year makes!

I'm pretty excited for tonight. They are having a fancy grand-reopening at my husband's work. It's also a fund raiser for the heart association. I have my first-ever "little black dress" and HOT red heels. I don't believe I've EVER felt so confident in an outfit! My husband has not seen it yet. I'm driving up to the party at the end of his work day. I can't wait to see his reaction when I walk in

I enjoy keeping up to date on everyone. Keep up the good work!

I'm with Helene, we want a picture of you in your little black dress and red heels. Hope you had a great time. It's always great to hear from you. And thanks for the encouragement for doing weights. Can't really tell much difference yet, but I "feel" like I'm getting buff! LOL!

We'll have to make do with a blurry pic from my phone for now, but you can get the general idea

We really had fun at the party! The food was wonderful; I believe it was Lebanese. I discovered I like stuffed grape leaves! (I think mainly because they taste like wine...yum!)There were lots of important local figures there, lots of fancy dresses...lots of money! For once, though, I didn't feel self-concious or out of place. In the past, it seemed like no matter how much I dressed up, I still felt frumpy, out of place, like I didn't belong or deserve to be with everyone else at the party. It's great to have confidence and self-esteem now! Anyway, here it is!

Looking very elegant. Lebanese food is one of my favourites, especially the grilled meats, salads like taboulleh and fatoush, hmm. They use a lot of lemon and parsley, which give their food a lovely flavour.
