I think we should catch up on a few things because it’s not often that I go a day or two without telling you the most random details of my life!
First, Emilee and I felt cool because we were wearing matching headbands…. I swear these headbands are the best for those days where your ears are cold but anything too thick would make you sweat to death. We are also both big fans of vests and sunglasses too.
Tuesday’s run: 8 miles @ 8:20 on the treadmill!
I know that reading while running would make a lot of people sick if they tried it but for some reason it just works for me. I get in a run and some reading at the same time… win win.
I went much later in the day and joined Emilee for her miles. She was doing a speed workout so I jumped in for a little bit of it (I did 2 miles of 1 minute on and 1 minute easy). She has kept up with her speed and I have not so I was behind her which felt weird after almost a year of being side by side with her on every run but that’s just how running goes. If you aren’t doing the work, you don’t get the benefits!
We got plenty of talking in during the non-workout portion of the run.
This was my view for quite a few hours on Wednesday. I’ve had problems with my gums since I was a young… I’ve had a tumor removed from them and gum grafts. This time around I don’t need a surgery but I’m having a therapy treatment done on them to help them to stop receding.
Long story short, I’ll be here a bit more often but they told me Skye is free to come too which makes things a bit easier.
We went to Target for Brooke to pick up some new decorations for her room. While as much as I like to control every little thing in the world, I really want her to feel ownership of her room and like she did a lot of the creating:). I’ll show you her room pics when we are all done in a week!
We got in a few hours of skiing… as soon as the sun goes down, Brooke and I are by the fire or in the lodge while Knox and Andrew go on a few more runs.
I somehow managed to break one of my poles.
Skye stayed in her pajamas the entire day which you would never know because she covered them with her Elsa dress.
I ate vegetables.
And I ate this black and white cookie from Sundance that I absolutely love.
General Mills sent me these which made the kids think I’m cool.
***I need your help. Skye was taking her nap while I was home alone and all of the sudden I heard a door close and footsteps coming towards me. I had never even thought about Skye getting out of her room because I knew she was in her crib so it freaked me out big time until I saw her smile coming around the corner.
So I put her back in her crib.
I did not have this situation with Brooke. I’m pretty sure I transitioned Brooke to a toddler bed when she was 3 because she was potty trained and needed to use the restroom at night too. Once she was in a toddler bed, Brooke would get out of her bed and use the restroom and go right back to her bed and not get out until I came in to get her ha. This is a whole different world to me… SKYE CANNOT have free rein of the house now during the night when we are asleep!
WHAT DO WE DO ABOUT SKYE?!
Can anyone else read while running on the treadmill? Treadmill runners—> What keeps you entertained?
While talking about the dentist—> Do you like laughing gas or no way?
-I love laughing gas. It takes all of my worries about the dentist away when I’m there ha.
Catch me up with you… what have you been up to?
