Snippets From the Weekend.

Enjoyed the 4th of July, hanging out at my parents' house. We had a cookout with some family and neighbors and watched the next-door neighbors shoot off fireworks over the lake.
Andrew and I did not run the Peachtree Road Race this year, which I was a little bummed out about. Neither of us felt in good enough shape to run it so a few weeks ago I sold our entries on Ebay. Which is against the Road Race rules so don't tell anyone. But we made a $70 profit from it.
I rented several movies over the weekend, including a documentary called "Devil's Playground", about Amish teenagers and the period of "rumspringa", when Amish teens can pretty much do whatever they want (party, smoke, drink, wear normal clothes, talk on cell phones, etc)until they decide if they want to join the Amish church. It was completely fascinating. Highly recommend.
I brought home a couple of boxes from my parents' basement, filled with old books, letters, cards and notes. I've been amusing myself reading Judy Blume and Paula Danzinger books but haven't delved into the notes and letters yet. I picked up a random note that turned out to be from a ninth grade boyfriend and it was so embarrassing I had to stop reading. Not sure when I will be able to go through all of them without feeling mortified for my Jr High/High School self. I want to go back in time and tell 14 year-old me to quit being such an idiot.
