Today Brooke gets her shots. I am afraid I am going to cry more than she does and so I probably won’t wear mascara for a while. I am also afraid that I am not going to see her smiley bubbly personality for a few hours after she gets her shots and that might make me go crazy.
Part of moving away from your family involves homesickness but that homesickness can be eased by a fun Skype conversation with the whole family on Sunday night. Yep, this was the highlight of my week (oh yeah, and running the race yesterday) and in ONE month I will be hanging out with all of them and eating my mom’s homemade lasagna (Mom, I am expecting that at least 4 times while I am home). PS Utah friends… clear your schedules completely for the two weeks that I am home. I will be offended if you choose to go to work/school/your obligations when I want you to go to Yogurtland with me.
Curly kept telling billy to ‘get out’ and what she meant by that was GET OUT of the computer and come play with me.
Last night Billy and I had barbecue chicken sandwiches with some peppers cooked in olive oil. The best part of the meal is that we have a ton of leftovers and so that means I had them for bfast and lunch today.
In case you have been wondering about what Billy does during his study breaks….
They had a petting zoo on campus the other day and I am pretty jealous he got to play around with miniature horses, goats, lizards, pigs and bunnies.
By the way, do you ever think that Billy looks like the guy from Dashboard Confessionals?
As far as workouts go, I did a few minutes on the elliptical. I am figuring out more and more that my main motivation for training and exercise now (didn’t used to be) is races. I love everything about races and having one on the calendar is what excites me to train and become a better runner. I MUST FIND A RACE ASAP!! Maybe even one for this weekend. I am addicted.
What is your number one motivation for working out lately? Anyone else with the main motivation being RACES?
Is there a celebrity that people tell you that you look like?
Do you ever use Skype?
Will you be going anywhere for Thanksgiving break (I do realize I am asking this 5 weeks in advance but don’t tell me you aren’t looking forward to Thanksgiving foods and family too)?
