Home Again

It’s been a busy week back at work after the trip but now finally the weekend!  Jeff and I had a hotel gift certificate expiring soon so we spent Friday night in our own town at the Hotel De Anza.  We last stayed here the night of our wedding reception, since we could just walk 1 block back from the restaurant and not worry about getting home after having a few drinks.  It was a fun way to explore our own town, especially downtown where we don’t go often.  We tried a great new place for dinner, strolled around an art walk, hung out in a jazz bar, and “raided the pantry.”

It’s been so nice to have a weekend at home without tons of scheduled events, at least for Saturday, that I have been out of my mind itching for something to do.  I even bathed a dog this afternoon. 

Tomorrow I will race my first tri since June.  Organizationally I have felt like a hot mess all week when thinking about putting race gear together, but it seems to have packed itself pretty easily once I thought about it.  It’s the local USAT qualifier so I expect to be whalloped by the fast girls but I’m excited to race in the ocean for my first time since 2007.  I think I can do it better this time!

Hope everyone is having a nice weekend!
