It feels strange not to start a post with a workout selfie (I might hold the world record for post-run selfies… not a record I am proud of;).
I am currently in the stage of recovery where I wonder if I will ever go back to waking up early in the morning to push myself out on the roads because of how good it feels to use the kids as my alarm clock right now. <–This is just part of the normal stages of recovery for me! In a few more days, I’ll talk about how much I miss running and how I don’t think I can handle being away from it for another minute (just preparing you for the upcoming post).
I’ll be missing this type of pain again before I know it:
I forgot to show you my favorite sign from Saturday!!
The picture below shows you how tired Beck was in the morning and it also shows off Andrew’s new favorite Halloween socks–> Jack Skellington.
Oh, and I forgot to tell you another important part from Andrew’s story of waiting until the ABSOLUTE last second to take his final. When he got his computer out that night, the camera (a requirement) he brought to take the test with wasn’t working. So he was at Walmart at 10 pm, frantically trying to get a new one in time to take his final at 11 pm. He also told me (after the fact) that it would have cost an extra 8k in schooling if he hadn’t passed this particular test. I don’t know how he handles all of this stress, and I’m glad he knows when to wait until after the fact to tell me things, so I don’t get ulcers.
And then I took him to watch the airplanes land at the airport.
Porch chats with my niece and hot chocolate… Everyone is happy I’m not getting into bed at 7 pm anymore;).
And last thing to tell you about–> I’m very excited about these two things. I think I’m going to eat them in bed while I catch up on some reality tv tonight.
COSTUME IDEAS FOR BECK! PLEASE HELP US!
Stages of recovery… do you ever go through a time where you wonder if you will not get back into training again?
