I hung out with Abbie and kids at Union Square on Monday. We chatted at the playground, had falafel sandwiches for lunch, and went to Strand. It was so fun to catch up. Abbie is one of those friends who you don’t have to see often to maintain a great friendship with. We always pick right back up where we left off, even if it’s been months. And with both of our busy schedules, that’s just the type of friends we need to be!
I found my favorite way to get to work from our new place, and I pop out of the subway right at Lincoln Square. I get a walk through the park, I don’t have to walk through East Harlem, and I get to see the temple. It takes 25 minutes longer, but whatever. If I’m not running late, it’s perfect.
Klane and I went to a Yankees game on Wednesday night. Can’t say no to free baseball tickets. It was really fun! We split a hot dog and a cheesesteak, Klane explained the finer points of baseball to me, and we sang “take me out to the ball game” at the 7th inning stretch before heading home early. I love baseball.
I have been running more regularly and my shin splints are flaring up big time. I guess it’s time to buy new running shoes. Although I’m hearing a lot about barefoot running shoes and I’m curious if maybe that could solve all my running injury problems. You hear about these people who have relied on orthodics and ultra-supportive shoes their whole lives and then they convert to barefoot and are now running completely injury-free with no support. Could it really be true?
I am going to Chicago this weekend for the American Association of Orthodontists convention with my office. Klane is out with his coworkers tonight for a post-softball-game drink (they drink beer, he drinks soda – but did I really have to clarify that?), and I should be using this time to pack for my trip. But I am having a wardrobe meltdown and I have no idea what to wear at the convention or to my staff dinner on Saturday, so I am here blogging instead. I am realizing what a casual dresser I am now that I have to come up with three days worth of business casual attire. I got NOTHING! Ahhhh….. heaven help me. But I am excited to see Chicago for the first time, and to see my parents there. And to eat deep dish pizza.
