Loribeth wished me good luck on my Vacation Hangover yesterday and it made me laugh because Andrew and I were definitely both feeling that.
Luckily, a good run helped with that struggle a bit.
Skye slept in way past everyone else but these two woke up happy and excited about Monday.
For lunch we went to Zao’s because our fridge was still empty and you just cannot pass up the free kid’s meal on Monday’s… their rice bowls are my absolute favorite.
A much needed hang out on the couch also happened.
We really have a thing for enchiladas and made those for dinner again.
Let’s start to discuss some tangents for the day!
*Who else is feeling the need to do alllllll of the spring cleaning right now? We keep coming across a lot of really fun treasures haha.
*Andrew used the clippers on Beck’s hair and I can’t believe how much it aged him.
*Bday twins. PS that is Curly and she looks like she is old enough to go to college these days.
*Andrew said he is the penguin in the back….
*Brooke gave Skye her old Lion King (Skye’s favorite movie ever!) sweatshirt and I have a feeling she is going to want to wear this every single day now.
*My dad got a Porsche and it makes him so incredibly happy which he sure needs in between the treatments he is doing for his cancer these days. We went out for a drive together recently and it took me back to the good old days when I was 15. My dad had a requirement for each of his kids (there are 5 of us) that we had to drive 100 hours with him (each minute was marked… there was no rounding up;) before we could get our licenses. I’m sure it was partly done to help us learn how to drive safely but also so that he could spend time with his teenagers uninterrupted.
PS his car is a stick shift and I used to drive a car with a stick shift but somehow I QUICKLY forgot how to drive one. I’m glad I didn’t break my dad’s car ha.
*Anybody remember how Andrew bought a ton of my favorite cookies (chocolate with peppermint frosting from Sodalicious) before they stopped selling them until next December? Well… I was hoping they would last me until December but sadly the last one was eaten last night. It’s going to be a long 7 months.
*Dr. Stacy Sims posted this and I yelled out “AMEN” after I read it. I wish wish wish I could have understood this in my 20s but I didn’t and it caused a lot of injuries and setbacks in my training but I’m so grateful I see it now. The more I sleep, eat and rest… the better and faster I run. Calories are our friends, don’t let the diet industry make you think they aren’t.
Any driving rules when you got your license? Who knows how to drive stick shift?
How do you do your cleaning… all at once, a different type of chore each day, rage cleaning, once a week? Give me the details!
Q from Katie! “Any tips for wireless headphones for LOOOOONG runs? I love my AirPods but they do not last for those looooooong training runs. Any tips?”
What’s your favorite car of all the cars that you’ve ever had? What’s your dream car?
