Monday Janae = ‘Oh goodness, running is feeling like a million bucks and I feel stronger than ever. I bet I could run a half-marathon tomorrow if I wanted to.’
Tuesday Janae= ‘Yeah, I’m going to take a walking break multiple times each mile and slow it down big time because this might in fact be the hardest run of my life.’ (This may have something to do with the fact that Beretta woke me up by her SNORING ((I didn’t know dogs snored) and I couldn’t fall back asleep that night… maybe she is just trying to get us ready for the baby).
Running sure humbles you right when you start getting a little overconfident about it all. Running likes to remind me whenever I feel like it is feeling easy that it isn’t easy ha.
I have been listening to more tunes lately than usual, especially when I am on the treadmill! Here are my top 12 current favorite running songs:
Bad At Love by Halsey (I am beyond obsessed with his song)
The Violence by Rise Against (for my first marathon I listened to an entire Rise Against album during the race so they always take me back to that day:)
Post-run and I was back home to wake Brooke up for school. Andrew told me that while they were camping last weekend Brooke put herself to bed at 9 and Knox could have stayed up all night partying… just like Andrew and me ha. She loves her sleep and Knox is like Andrew and wouldn’t be mad if he never had to sleep again.
Morning pep talk before school starts.
Greek yogurt + peaches from Costco + Cinnamon Toast Crunch. Absolutely delicious.
Knox will be with us for the next 1.5 weeks straight so we are all thrilled about that!
Yesterday afternoon included swim lessons!
I brought my current favorite trail mix (my one ingredient trail mix is pretty fancy—> chocolate covered raisins. Andrew apologized to me yesterday for telling me how gross he thought chocolate covered raisins were and then he tried them… and loved them.
Brooke telling me that she has her eye on me.
Dinner was our weekly (biweekly) tradition of grilled cheese and tomato soup. It always sounds good. Andrew and I moved up to 1.5 sandwiches and Brooke tried dipping her sandwich in tomato soup for the first time and loved it (don’t mind the carrots and orange peels all over:).
This is great news. Costco started carrying tomato basil soup and it is our absolute favorite. They don’t have it during the summer and I’ve been waiting for it to be back for months now. If you like tomato soup and Costco, try this.
PS The other day I decided to try making the kids some Beretta pancakes…
They were a success. I don’t know if the kids will ever want normal looking pancakes again after these.
PPS we went on a date Monday night. Andrew will be gone at the hospital for most of the rest of the week so we decided to go out on Monday. We have neighbors that I have known for over 10 years now (I met them in my spin class when I taught:) and they have two kids our kids’ ages… we LOVE doing swaps with them. It makes it so easy to be able to just go out for an hour or two and then have them do the same whenever they want.
Andrew saw the pictures from when we went to Benihana in Vegas and has craved it ever since then. We don’t have a Benihana’s but we found a similar restaurant. The fried rice was everything. I could have eaten everyone’s serving of that rice.
Megan D sent this to me… She and I have been friends for 6ish years and we have never once spoken on the phone;) Let’s just say she isn’t much of a phone talker ha so I had to laugh when she sent this to me. I don’t feel like I usually call people very often unless it is my mom, dad or siblings but every now and then the kids will have my phone and accidentally push call to someone I haven’t talked to in ten years (I should probably go through my contacts;)! Do you understand this panic?
Phone calls… do you talk on the phone often or not so much? Who do you talk to on the phone the most often?
Parents reading… what are your kid’s sleeping patterns like?
What would be in your ultimate trail mix!?! I want to hear your perfect combination for a trail mix!
What was your dinner last night!?!
