A short little update

Just to post about how things have been going lately:

Went to Seven Stories, a children’s literature museum, last weekend.  It was really fun and gave us some inspiration for upcoming projects.  There were original manuscript sections and letters written to authors and editor Kaye Webb.  Plus, there were rooms that looked as if you were walking through Anthony Browne’s books.  It was very cool but sort of odd to be the only adults there without kids.  Oh well.

I’ve been keeping up my daily walk and got to take another try at jogging again on Monday.  I went for 15 minutes without incident so next time I’ll try to get back to my 20 minute mark.  I’m doing my stretching and doing what I can to make sure I don’t hurt my ankle again.  According to once I get to jogging 30 minutes at a time, then I can feel as if I’m doing well.  That will be my aim for now – I’ll worry about time, speed and distance later.

I’m sad to not have seen or heard shuttle Atlantis come in for the last time today.  I’m glad that some people I use to work with are still hanging on to jobs at the Kennedy Space Center but it’s a shame that everything is at a stand-still right now.  I do hope that we can get another program up and running soon.  Having good people from NASA not coming up with new technologies for the world is ridiculous.  We need science!

Everything here has been going well.  I’m still applying for jobs and writing at home and keeping myself occupied as much as possible.  Steve’s off changing the world of video gaming again so I have to gather up some dinner on my own.  I think a nice walk to Subway will be in order.


  1. Howdy Hello:

    Jeff Galloway has a book for newbie joggers that you might like. It's titled, Running Getting Started.

    Hope your sub was num num nummy.

  2. Thank you so much. I'll look for that.
    Sub will have to wait until later. I ate at home. :-/

  3. I don't agree with everything in his books, but he's a good starting point. His outlook and passion for running is a joy. He loves what he does, and he's good at helping jogger throughout all stages of their jogging career.

    Best of fun to you. Keep jogging!
