Saturday was an early start and I didn't stop the first time until noon. My car had its first oil change, for free, and there's been some rattling going on in the trunk, and the they figured it out... it's the tools in the spare tire compartment. Great to know it's not the car itself, but now it's annoying. Why should I keep the tools in there if they're rattling? I don't know how to change a tire, I can't budge the spare tire for the life of me (I've tried), and I have Triple A. If it keeps up, I'm going to wrap everything in that compartment in bubble wrap. I want QUIET!
The rest of Saturday was low key, and I made an apple pie. I've stated before I'm not a pumpkin person at all, but I love apples. I bought 3 different apples, and made a pie. I also bought vanilla ice cream because a hot slice of apple pie plus ice cream is heaven! I watched the first half of Pride and Prejudice because I'm trying to save my Halloween movies. Between what I have, and Netflix, I think I'll be good for the month.
Sunday I finally ran outside in some great fall weather. It was in the high 50s when I started my run, which was about 8:30 in the morning. I'd watched about an hour of the Chicago marathon during breakfast, and with all the different races going on this weekend, I had to get outside too. Some of my cousins were doing the Army 10-miler, so I was in the spirit. I ended up doing 3.1 miles, which is short of what I wanted, but my hip ended up being tight, with affected my ITBand. Boo! But it was 3.1 miles, and I'm still getting used to the outside terrain. I hadn't been doing some hip stretches either, so that's my fault. I can't help but look at the pain-free 3.5 miles I did 10 days ago, but I have another month to complete my virtual run. It won't break my heart if I can't yet do 4 miles by Election Day, but I want to try.

The afternoon was spent with friends, playing Secret Hitler. It was the first time I played the game, and you need a minimum of 5 players. The group grew and shrunk, and there's a different variation of the game, depending on the number of players. I think we played close to 3 hours with so many different rounds. Not something I'd say in real life, but the "Fascists" have more fun in the game. They have an advantage and know who the other Fascists are, but those who get a Liberal card don't know who's Liberal and who's Fascist.
And that's the weekend. Yeah, I would've liked another day off.
