The Autumnal equinox is where there are 12 hours of daylight and 12 hours of night (if you are at the equator, if you aren't it's not so exact). Here's another tidbit about the Autumnal Equinox: In ancient times, the Autumn Equinox was cause for a variety of pagan festivals, among them the celebration of the birth of Mabon, the son of Mordon, the Goddess of the earth.
Amanda, and I have the day to ourselves. John's schedule was rearranged due to some PITA who wanted a full 8 hour shift and his boss asked if he and his partner could accomodate that (their store runs on 2 FT pharms and one floater or PT). They can but it means that instead of one stretch day (8am-10pm) a week, they do 2 stretch every other week. I don't mind being alone all day once a week, but twice a week can really put me out of sorts. I hope this is not a bad omen as I've had all the bad stuff I can take this year. That said, Amanda and I are going to head to the park for a run. I'll do 3 or 4. If I do 4 I'll probably walk/stretch some of it just to be careful. So far today the hip feels good, no stiffness or pain. We are supposed to go to some health thing at the chiropractor at 11:30. I don't want to go. I got out of it the other week, I may just claim forgetfulness and skip it. I have better things to do (well I don't but I don't feel like sitting there listening to a bunch of mumbo jumbo). We will also head to Target
I would head to Starbucks but I think I'll try and be really good this week and follow the plan to the letter. I am SUPREMELY glad that the 2 day starter diet is over as it was EXTREMELY limiting. Of course I'm already thinking that the regular diet part is also limiting
Other news, and it's good. My friend and her husband went to Toledo, OH yesterday and finalized their sons adoption! WHOOHOOO! I'm hoping that all went well and she didn't do anything really bad as her MIL went with them and they'd just had a family vacation where the MIL was um, a little interfering. My friend was NOT happy. Anyway, they picked up their son in on Christmas eve last year and 9 months later it's official! I should do something for them. Not sure what though.
