I sit down to write and then life happens, and then I don't write for a while.  Must work on that.  Life will happen no matter what.

The biggest things that are happening right now are just mundane life things.  Car repairs, for example (it has not been a great year in the car department for me.  More on that in a bit.)

I've been enjoying CrossFit lately, but the sad thing is my Coach decided to leave for another box in the city.   We are all very happy for her, it is an exciting new opportunity for her, but we were all terribly sad to see her go.  Her last day was this past Friday, and it took colossal effort on my part not to cry as I hugged her and wished her godspeed.  :-(

Francesca & I the other night.  I'm really going to miss her.

Sunday morning, someone backed into my car, hitting it right where the license plate is.  It's not terrible at all.   The plate bore the brunt of the damage.  The person was extremely apologetic about it, which makes it easier.  The next step is to take it to a body shop and get an estimate.  It's not a huge deal, but it's certainly something that didn't need to happen, you know?  This after having just gotten it back because there had been a misfire to one of the 4 cylinders.  I get the car back Saturday, then boom, this happens.  ugh.

I've decided to get an early start on my Christmas shopping this year.  I'm already looking at stuff for my niece and nephew.  I'm steering more towards getting them comic books, puzzles, gift cards, and some nerd related things - Star Wars, comic book related coloring books, etc.  Must ensure the nerd continues with the younger generation.  :-)

Anywho, not much else to add.  I'll post a Thanksgiving update later this week.
