I was definitely planning on waiting to run until 2021 but once my doctor cleared me to run… I was too excited to wait any longer. Stephanie said in the comments the other day that I was cleared at just the right time because I’ll be missing people a lot this week (talking more about that at the end of this post) and running will be a great way to start each day!
I was able to go run with my friend Maddie on Saturday and it felt so good to be out doing what I love again.
Andrew’s work gave him a gift card to Chipotle so of course we went right away for the good stuff. This picture reminded me of the picture below it:
While we were out we also had to get one of Skye’s ears repierced. Her earring fell out one day and we didn’t notice for a few days and it closed up so fast! We told her she could choose to get it pierced again or not and she wanted to.
Beck is doing some major talking these days.
And I have used our hot tub every day since my doctor told me I could.
There was also a whole lot of couch time this weekend.
We also made cookies but they didn’t taste very good so we just ate all of the peppermint kisses on top;)
A few random things to talk about:
*Brooke is loving her new camera and I am loving finding her pictures all over the house. She told me she wants to be a photographer now.
*Grace sent me this movie and it made me cry… please watch!
*ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE!!!!! Do you think that she will become the fastest marathoner in American history eventually?
*Brooke is leaving today to spend the week with her Dad, step-mom and little brother. She is so excited and so are they! Knox left last week and Andrew will be working like crazy this week taking care of people that I am sure want to be anywhere else but the hospital during the holidays. I’m sure a lot of people are going to be missing people this year. If you are, I just want to tell you that I am here for you and would love to email (one handed because feeding Beck is basically a full-time job right now ha) but I am really sorry that you are going through this and I feel a bit of what you are feeling too.
I am feeling very lucky that I will have Skye and Beck for every holiday (sharing can be hard on the holidays but of course it is the best thing for these kids of mine with two families!). I’m grateful that Brooke will text me all week while she is gone (she has a phone to text me at her dad’s house and she sends some hilarious texts and her use of emojis is amazing) and that Andrew and I will be getting our favorite takeout and watching Modern Family non-stop after his shifts this week.
I hope this week you are filled with so much love and hope and I just want to give you a big hug but that is kind of hard because none of us live close to each other … and because of social distancing ha. Enjoy all of the treats and if you are hoping for a White Christmas, I hope you get it. Of course I’ll be blogging this week so you’ll have to keep me updated with all of the things you are up to!
Are you going to be missing people this week or will you be with most of your people?
Do you think Sara Hall will ever beat Deena Kastor’s record (2:19:36)?
Tell me what the highlight was of your weekend?
How cold is too cold for you to go out for a run?
