  • I've missed working on Sunday afternoons sooo much (not!). Helping kids/parents with school projects when only the parent is talking is quite the experience
  • Fundraising is going well im at $265, 8 percent, not bad considering I'm only really starting to get my fundraising letters out. If you have any questions about donating please ask!
  • The actual walking part is going well too. I still haven't met many walkers. We did 5 miles yesterday. I finished in about 1 hour 20 minutes which is a 16 min minute which is just under a 7 hour marathon pace. Which is not very fast. I bought a belt where you can hang your water bottles so I won't have to carry them. As a result my form should be better and in theory I should get faster. I had a delightful woman from New Zealand help out with purchasing the belt and socks yesterday.
  • I went to a new church this morning. New to me anyways. It was a Episcopalian church. I'm not happy at the church I'm at now and haven't been for a long time. I was going to post a long list of grievances. But I don't think God wants me to do that. The church is actually two parishes. The one that is closest to me has its' service at the unholy hour of 8:30am. I went to the one that is a bit farther away that has a 10:30 service. :) There were about 65-70 people there. I wasn't the youngest single person there I don't think and to my delight there were a few African-Americans in the pews. I'm not that familiar with the liturgy but I don't think I completely embarrassed myself. I must learn to cross myself properly before I go again. I think I like the priest. He has a partner. *sound of people dropping from my friends list*
