Let’s start with the highlights and then we will end with the lowlights.
-Waking up and feeling pretty darn good the day after running 18 miles. I feel strong and ready to keep moving forward with this whole marathon training thing.
-Spending the afternoon with my soul sister.
-GEL NAILS. These just make me happy and it has been way too long since the last time I went and got them.
-Finally hanging up some things on Brooke’s walls.
-Hanging out with Brooke in the grass while she runs around and I look at catalogs and pray that this gorgeous coat will go on an 85% off sale soon.
-Making oatmeal raisin cookies for a friend that loves cookies but doesn’t like chocolate chip cookies (I know, it doesn’t make sense to me either). I am happy about this situation because it reminded me of how incredible oatmeal raisin cookies taste. Seriously. They are winners and I don’t think there is anything that makes your house smell better than these cookies.
-Watching Brooke blow on all of her food for about 2 minutes before she eats it (ever since she had her birthday and loved blowing her candles out she feels the need to pretend she has candles on all of her meals).
Time for the two lowlights:
1. Finding out my brother-in-law wastes money on bags of black licorice assortment candies.
‘Seek first to understand, then to be understood’—> this principle does NOT apply to situations like people enjoying black licorice.
2. That is actual snow in our mountains. It is August. Not right on any level.
Tell me about a highlight and/or lowlight from your Saturday!
