Regarding: Sightseeing


Last night, Michael decided we should take the dogs “hiking” here, Kiwanis Trail on South Mountain.  Its only 1 mile, but it was 102 degrees and we knew that Solo wouldn’t make the whole thing.  So we did about half of it.

The nice part as that the two peaks shaded the trail for most of the way.

And we saw one of these, a ringtailed cat.  Which is actually a member of the raccoon family.  Michael said I couldn’t take it home.

Remember what a hard time I was having getting up to an alarm clock back in NC.  Well, that problem seems to be solved.  I have been getting up at 5am (or close to it) since we hit the road. Have to get the runs in before it gets too hot.  I am going to bed earlier as well.  But overall, it feels good.

Anyone else caught up in the Olympics? I have been watching online, mostly to avoid Bob Costas and Ryan Seacreast.  But also because I can watch whatever I want.  That means tennis mostly.  But Track and Field starts tomorrow!

About nfoste2245

I am approaching 40 and have been married since my early 20's. I have become more than a little frustrated with having to answer incredibly personal questions about my choice to not have children. It is apparently taboo to talk about religion and politics, but confronting me about my reproductive choices is fair game. It is not a choice I made alone, quickly or lightly. My husband and I made it together. I am not "withholding" children or grandchildren from anyone. There is an astonishing lack of understanding over the idea that it is an actual choice, to have a child or not. There is also an amazing lack of support, discussion and resources for those like me, that have made the choice. This is not a blog for kid-haters, or mocking people for having kids. It is a place where we can talk about living full lives, without kids, and without guilt.
