1. My big girl is gone for 2 nights/3 days on a school trip. We've known about this for months and I'm so excited for her, but it is still so very weird to have her gone! We are a blended family so I am used to her being gone for a few nights, BUT I always talk to her at night, last night is the first night EVER that I've gone without talking to her, that's weird. I know she's having an amazing time, doing things she wouldn't otherwise be able to do - snorkeling, kayaking, dissecting squid, going on a stargazing hike tonight. I wish I had been picked as a chaperone, but I've got 2 more chances (maybe 3) to go when the little girls get bigger.
2. I've run once since last Tuesday, I'm not really very happy with that, but with being sick I just haven't done it. I ran on Tuesday this week, I only did 2.5 miles to see how I felt and I felt pretty good. As soon as the garage door people get here to fix the broken garage door (what else would they be fixing?) and get done I'm going to hop on the treadmill and do 5-6 miles depending on how I feel. After school buggy and I will run a mile and a quarter to pick up mini me. I'm a bit nervous about my half on the 24th since I haven't done much training, but I guess that I know I can do it so I'll just go out and go as fast as I can and hope I can best my time from January.
3. Random picture drop time, I've taken a few pictures over the past few days to share, so here they are in no particular order -
Mini Me with the Big Girl's science fair project
Bow piggies for Dr. Seuss' Birthday
Cute girl, pre-pneumonia
For Carrie, this is fruit seasoning (it is amazing!!)
Playing sick at mom's doctor's appt
She did these all by herself (she's in kindy so I'm impressed)
That's all I've got going on, I'm going to now relax with my cup of coffee and catch up on dvr'ed shows until they get here to fix my garage door.
