We got dumped on with snow a bit more over here which made for a very exciting run.
I got ready to leave early in the morning but when I looked outside I knew that my odds were 100% of slipping if I attempted to run in the dark. I waited until things were plowed a bit more and the sun was out to go for it. I’m pretty sure that I didn’t look up during the entire run. I take it nice and slow and watch every step when we have this type of weather.
Summer heat, I miss you terribly right about now.
We had a very productive day of a whole lot of nothing together.
While Skye was napping I wrapped her birthday presents and started making plans for her birthday party. I decided that she wants my mom’s lasagna for her birthday party… even though she has never tried it. I’m positive that it is in her DNA to love it (or maybe I’m just a selfish mom and really want to make my mom’s lasagna).
While I was wrapping her presents I started thinking about Brooke’s 1st bday party. I had just moved into my parents’ basement and cried about 99% of my day for a few months trying to deal with everything at that time. Skye is so busy and needing my constant attention right now, it made me wonder how in the world I survived that time of life when Brookester was so little. That time of life taught me a whole lot and strengthened me beyond belief and I’m sure glad that things are the complete opposite in life right now with Skye’s 1st birthday party. It’s going to be a lot of fun celebrating her with Andrew and the kids…
We went to TJ’s to get the kid’s presents for their teachers.
Look what’s back—> Sweet potato, chicken, bbq sauce & salsa. I’m very happy this combo is back in my life again.
Time for a few tangents:
*My brother (the pilot for Southwest) works a bunch of days in a row followed by a chunk of time off… which leaves him with too much free time. His poor son.
*She pierced her ears last winter and finally wanted to switch them out for the first time (she was very concerned switching them would feel like getting them pierced again).
*Skye just recently started not liking the car… Has this ever happened with any of your kids? She was totally fine with the car for a long time and then suddenly dislikes it strongly? She is happy if I put my hand back and hold her hand while Andrew is driving but that’s about it lately.
*Our date last week. Kids to bed early, Crazy Rich Asians (WE BOTH LOVED THIS MOVIE… Andrew has been to Singapore a few times so he loved seeing some of his favorite spots on the movie too) and Two Jack’s Pizza. The last time I had this pizza was when I was teaching high school and some of the teachers brought it in. I’ve thought about these cheese sticks ever since then. This might be our goto pizza place now.
*Brooke’s first grade pictures. She is 6 going on 16. A lot of you have noticed in my pictures but this little girl has all of the sudden looked so much older lately.
*The ultra book I am reading is telling me that I need to be getting pedicures and massages often as part of my training… Fine, if you make me.
*Our own personal Godzilla. She finds so much satisfaction tearing apart the big kid’s train set creations and other projects and then throws her arms up in the air in victory.
*I shared a service advent calendar on Sunday and here is another one too! I heard this quote on Sunday night, “If you think you’re too small to make a difference then you’ve never spent the night with a mosquito.” <— I LOVED THAT. The little acts that we each do make the biggest differences in our world.
*Found my long run fuel for this week;) Already looking forward to a few hours with Andrew on the snowy trails!
*I just love this picture.
I would LOVE to hear a tangent from you!
Any advice for running on snowy trails?!
Do you wear jewelry often? Have your ears pierced? How often do you switch things up?
-I have my ears pierced but I probably only switch my earrings one or two times a year ha.
Favorite things to top your sweet potatoes with?
