First to Finds and Murder Mysteries

So I took a few days off of blogging, mostly because I’ve had a few late nights. By the time I’ve gotten home, it’s pretty much time to crash if I want to be functional the next day.

Being that it’s Friday, I can push it tonight, especially since we can sleep in tomorrow.  Our only day plans are geocaching, and then tomorrow night we’re watching the Fantastic Four (aka the kids) over at Terry and Erica’s.

That wasn’t sarcasm either…those kids are pretty rockin’.

Work has been busy these past few days, but part of it has been fun because I’ve had a chance to flex some of my creative muscles. I decided to write and execute a murder mystery for our office to celebrate Halloween. I believe it can also be considered a team building exercise because people will have to interact with others to figure it out.

Getting back into our exercise routine has been a challenge, but we’re working on it. I made it to the gym twice this week, and we’re planning some hiking and walking cache routes for this weekend. While we haven’t been lumps, I’m ready to up the intensity again next week. I may also be close to getting back on the elliptical.

Thursday night, I got my first FTF. We were watching Forsh’s dog that evening (Forsh is a work friend I’ve mentioned before, but she only recently gave me permission to use her name), and as we were leaving, a new cache alert came up. We hauled butt to the area and started looking.

During our hunt, the cache owner came by and gave us some hot and cold hints. I think we would have eventually found it, but the experience was kind of like getting buck fever: I was so tweaked over getting the First to Find, I was kind of all over the place.  I’m glad we were in the right place at the right time. My first FTF was also my 152nd cache.

In other cool caching news, we’re attending two upcoming event caches in the area and we ordered a set of zombie travel bugs to send out. I’m super excited about all these things.

Jon and I watched the first three episodes of American Horror Story: Coven. So far, it’s good. Disturbing, but good.

I’m sure I’m forgetting something but it’s late and I’m losing steam fast, so I’m off to bed. Hoping to have pics and stories from tomorrow’s adventures to share on the next post.
