THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for all of your input yesterday… I am SO brand new to all of this and you guys helped out big time. I didn’t even think about how hard it would be to clean light colored grout and I have this weird OCD CLEAN EVERYTHING PERFECTLY tendency (poor Andrew) and so that would have killed me off.
Seriously, yesterday’s comments helped out so much so be prepared for a lot more questions.
My new dream job = getting good at house renovations, learning everything possible about it and flipping houses. Wouldn’t that be fun? I should probably start by liking painting more;)
Let’s talk about Tuesday!
Yesterday’s run turned from finishing 8 miles at 8:00 a.m. to finishing 5 miles at 2:30 pm. I was literally just about to jump on the treadmill when I got a phone call that the floor guys were ready to start a DAY EARLY. How often does that happen… I was worried that they were going to start late.
They were away from each other for a day and pretty excited to be back together again.
First, we had to stop by Home Depot for a few things and then we went over to the house to pick up everything off the floors in approximately 22 minutes. It felt like a workout, I was sweating by the end of that—> And by the end of Home Depot if we are going to be honest.
We are doing laminate everywhere except for the bedrooms. Next on our list, is to do our blinds ourselves… our friend showed us how to do them when you buy them at Lowe’s. They will be way cheaper this way.
After we left the house we then searched around for couches. They were convinced that these belong in our house.
When we got home I finally jumped on the treadmill. I’ve got a long run today so it wasn’t really about getting mileage in yesterday but more just some sanity. Running (even if just on the treadmill with 3 years olds and a dog right next to me) just gives me that me-time each day. I can go without it but goodness gracious, even if it is in the middle of the day… those miles alone in my head are SO needed.
Post-run activities included a walk with the pup.
Just a few more days until we have a kitchen again. Until then, I’ll just have a bowl of guac please.
Andrew had the burrito.
And Brooke is all about tacos these days. The tacos may only have chicken and cheese.
And I had this magnificent salad.
Andrew bought a bunch of juice and I had this one… it was SOOOO good. I’ve been easing back (just the bi-annual thing I like to do) a lil’ on the treats during the week (the weekends are different;) but bring on the fruit and drinks.
Can I tell you a little story that is probably strange (maybe just scroll over it;) but I’ve been making a bigger deal than I should about it?! So a year or two ago a company wanted to send me some necklaces and bracelets. I requested the jewelry to either have the letter B on them (for Brooke) or J and B (for Janae and Brooke). They sent the stuff and everything had either the B or J B except for this triangle necklace. I was quite confused about where the A came from. I absolutely loved the necklace and wore it for months straight but with the A J side facing in because the letters made no sense so I just didn’t show them.
Last night I was untangling a bunch of jewelry that I hadn’t worn in a little while in order to pack them and came across this triangle necklace.
Andrew and Janae.
I was freaking out and Andrew was laughing at me and then said that God has a good sense of humor.
Okay, it is nothing but I’m just going to go ahead and think it is a sign we were meant to be;)
Yes, I’m crazy. You’ve known that for years;)
I mean what are the odds that an A was on the necklace… 1/26 or something hahaha!
Megan sent this to me…. we went to Jason’s Deli together with Ash just before Brooke made her appearance. (I’m still positive the airplane put me into labor… she came early after being checked and the doctors told me she wasn’t coming for awhile)
I’VE GOT A NEW TANK FOR YOU!!!! It’s my life motto pretty much!!
Post-running Janae is a lot happier than pre-running Janae. It’s a proven fact.
They will sell for about 2 weeks and you can find them HERE!! They are the perfect gift for your running friends and obviously yourself;) If you send in your pic of you in your tank (or t-shirt) then I will post them!!! Also, my last shirt is still available——> Sorry For What I Said At Mile 20!!!
Time to go out for the LONG run for the week! LOVED seeing this quote on Alana Hadley’s instagram:
Anyone into juicing? Favorite combos for juice?
Let’s play a fun game to go along with that time-hop pic of me pregnant with Brooke… WHERE were you in life about 4 years ago? What was your running like? Where were you living?
Let’s talk—> what do you think is the absolute best breed of dog?
-Beretta is a lab so I’m going to have to go with that.
Any lunchtime runners? Afternoon runners?
-Back when I taught high school I would occasionally go for a run during lunch and somehow it gave me a bunch of energy to keep up with teenagers for a few more hours;)
