Today was THE day… the Breast Cancer walk downtown!
Woke up at 6:30 am, saw how early it was and rolled right back over. I set the alarm for an hour later… I could sleep some more. But then at 8:15 I woke & realized I was LATE! Sort of. Hopped in the shower & did the mad dash. Dress, feed everyone but me & high tail it to the walk… which started at 9 am! Well according to the website.
Made it with a few to spare, but since others were registering too, no big deal. Got my sticker. Got my shirt. ….waited. Decided to walk back to the car to ditch the jack & slip on the new shirt. Came back. Waited. Still not having a clue the distance of this walk. Waited. Overheard a conversation beside me and learned the actual walk wouldn’t even start til 11 am!
…..ONE AND A HALF HOUR LATER.
So I decided to do my own walk. For coffee. First stop I found may other walkers who happened to have the same idea. So I ventured a few more blocks. I was there to walk, why not walk.
Thankfully I found my way to the bottom of a pumpkin pie latte! While watching plenty of people and dogs walking by.
I turned it into a me day. Vintage shopping, dealing with some emotions and even a lunch date.
So no real walking. But I raised some money for the cause and raised my own spirits.
Been there, got the t-shirt. Now I know. Ask more questions regarding the actual timelines.
Now off to Boos & Booze, or Spirits & Spooks.. ha ha drinking with the team!
