We Are Now Bloggers!

Everyone has to have a blog these days so that family and friends can keep up in their day to day lives. So this is us joining the trend.  There are just the two of us but we do some fun things... sometimes.  For example, Alex is training for a marathon and today I started running.  This means that my husband, who runs 5 miles as an easy run, got to "run" one mile with me while I ran a block and then walked a block.  Lucky for me he is a very patient man and doesn't seem to mind.  The good news is that he should be able to keep me from falling into the trap of working out once and then waiting 6 months before I do it again.

Alex has been really busy with school, but that is to be expected when he is taking three Russian literature classes in one semester.  He has a reading list a mile long and always has his nose in a book.  Then again I can't say I mind too much because it is giving me a chance to read some books myself.  Mostly I'm reading fun books but I have decided that I'm going to read Crime and Punishment and Anna Karenina with Alex when he has to for his class.  I have already started Crime and Punishment and I am actually liking it so far but I'm not sure how long that will last.  It could be that it is Russian... or the fact that is has punishment in the title but I'm pretty sure it isn't going to end well.
