home sweet home is just like heaven.

  I do love to travel.  Not as much however as I love to be home in my safe little bubble with the hubby.  It occurred to me this morning that I had not laughed or relaxed since Thursday night..  I hit the road early headed to Omaha on a nuun trip to sample 4 stores and then run a booth at the HyVee Whole Health Experience Expo.  The 80s weekend show on the radio made getting lost 4 times kinda rad in hindsight.  Woodchuck cider and Doctor Who as well as a nice treadmill made for a descent trip despite the hardships.  I have to mention my netbook also.  Little Red may be the best purchase in years.  My whole trip was so much better and since I don't have a yearly or more plan to pay for I had fun scoping out WiFi spots for free!   Google maps however are not reliable. At least I didn't invade the wrong country or anything.

Coming home has to be one of the best experiences in life.  I was so tired last night when I finally did roll into Des Moines but seeing my spawn and hubby made all right with the world. 
Today the creative juices were flowing and I finished some homework that I have been hesitant about sending off.  I also didn't want to stress eat.   That stress eating business has now come to an end.  I have been worried about trying to lean up since this summers anemia scare but now that I am supplementing its time to get back at it. I want my Michelle Obama arms back too.

Thanks Neil Z for the sweet T's!!  I will get some photos of us wearing them where you can see we are barefoot too!  The oldest spawn shutter bug was off playing with his friends.  Dang kids having their own lives and all that!  (Don't you love the burned out stump in the back yard.  Many a hotdog and marshmallow have been roasted at that happy spot.)
Neil is a fantastic photographer, blogger, barefoot runner, and he holds some sweet giveaways as well! Go check him out at Because all the Cool kids are doing it!  Let him know I sent ya his way.

The dear one and I ran 9 barefoot miles at the fairgrounds.  It became quite cold after the sun went down however by that time we were warmed up from running.  I was done with running at about mile 7 and decided that I was ready to be done and  get home to eat.  Those last 2 miles seemed to last a lifetime!  I felt strong and happy but incredibly hungry on this run.

So now its time for some Venture Brothers after taking care of the spawn yelling from the bathroom that he is all done making snakes in the potty.  So good to be home!
Happy Running friends!
