Whoops, broke the website.

I had a customized theme on the website previously, one that I made hand-edits on back in 2005 or 2006. Forgot about that, and went on updating the site’s themes and plugins. I broke something, so this theme may be temporary until I figure out what I did. Whoops.

Weekend Roundup

Tag: Cars,PaulPaul C. @ 10:45 pm

Well hello there, and welcome back.
So this weekend was busy and fun. Emily had a church event Friday night and I hung out at home with the kids. Saturday, I ran my 2nd 5k race, and almost took a minute off my time, running just over a 9 minute split for each leg. The race was mostly flat, so that may be why – but I am training for a thanksgiving day 10k race, so I will take what I can get :).
I am training with Tri-State Running on Tuesday and Saturday with some scheduled off-day training on my own. Not sure I am ready for a 10k, but I am going to try! Saturday night we took the kids to one of the local Catholic church festivals. It has some really great rides and they had a fun time.
Sunday was church and then I came home and cut the front yard and side yard, and had a neighbor stop by interested in the Jetta. Their son is getting his license and really wants a manual transmission car. Just shy of a year ago, I found a note on the Jetta from someone letting me know they really liked it and was curious if I was selling it. Then this past spring, this same teen stopped by after I got off work asking questions about it, so it has been on his mind for a while. I let his dad know what was wrong with it (ebrake cables, AC died in July, etc) and they are considering. I’ll miss it, Here is the blog post from when I bought it. It has been a very reliable car for me and I really enjoyed it. Can’t wait to pass it on.
We have quite a bit of exciting stuff coming up so I will make sure to post on that stuff.
update – Sorry about the closed comments. A WordPress update turned them off by default. Will try to fix that.
