Mom's Day

Mother's Day is today and I worked. It was a really nice day at work, there were tons and tons of people and they were all happy and nice, which is a rare thing and it was lovely!! After work I picked the girls up and we came home and I opened presents. The girls all made things for me, they were really sweet and wonderful! My mom also got me a gift from the girls, a new pair of Toms (since the ones hubs ordered for me didn't fit and were then back ordered). Hubs bought me yummy candy and a very sweet card. Then we had ice cream and cleaned out one of the girls closets (partially). Now we are relaxing and catching up on some tv.
Tomorrow it's back to moving my butt in the treadmill in the morning. It is going to be a VERY full week so I'm hoping to get through it all without losing my mind!

Three Things Thursday

1. I can't wait for the girls to be out of school! With the combination of all of the end of the year activities and the cost of the end of year activities and the cost of summer and fall activities that we have to pay for now we are going broke and running crazy! I'll be glad for the break that summer will bring!

2. The sink issue is not resolved! The dinner dishes are still sitting next to the sink that won't freaking drain. I am so done with the issues. Hopefully tomorrow we will get it fixed.

3. I don't think I'm running the half I was planning to this month. With the crazy running around and the aforementioned brokeness (just made that word up!) from all the kid activities I'm thinking it's a no go. I'm really ok with it too, I will be ready for the next one in the fall.

That's all I've got today.

Whiny whiny Wednesday

I'm super whiny today! So whiny I can hardly stand myself! My excuse is that I just started my period and I have horrible cramps and that is in addition to the sinus headache I have thanks to allergies that have been killing me for the last few days.
I slept in and didn't run or do any sort of exercise today, but I did run Sunday, Monday and Tuesday so I'm ok with taking a break. But, that doesn't excuse my horrible carb binge today, waaa!
This afternoon I was cleaning out some leftovers and dropped a huge chub of pork in the sink. Being lazy I just ran the disposal and promptly created a HUGE clog, which I only made worse by dumping drain-o on it. Hubs got it taken apart and while clearing the clog realized that there was a crack in the pipe (which makes me feel much less crazy because I kept thinking it was wet under there!!). Luckily he has a good friend who is a plumber so he is here right now at 9 pm replacing it. Yay!!

Sunday Catch All, with a new 5K PR!

It has been a fast week in our house, literally!

We will go back to Thursday for my catch up (since that's as far back as I can remember). It started off like a normal morning, getting everyone up and off. Then I climbed on the treadmill to do a nice long walk and then a short run. 20 minutes into my incline walk (and Law & Order: SVU) my calendar dinged at me, dentist in 1 hour!! Eek! My dentist's office is about 40 minutes away! So I rushed and got ready to go. I made it with 5 minutes to spare. I needed a filling because my tooth colored fillings are not standing up well to my teeth grinding while I sleep and they are getting fractured. The fractures mean lots of tooth sensitivity!! One is bad enough that it warranted a new filling. I HATE the numbing shot and the numb face, especially because that ALWAYS makes my face swell, so I went without and it was really no big deal.  I have to go back in 2 weeks to have another filling replaced.

That afternoon I took the two biggest girls to get some new sandals today and was SHOCKED when my big girl couldn't get a size 6.5 on her foot! So we had her sized and she's a 7.5 (remember this child is 10)!! OMG! She is going to have huge feet like her mama!! Then my buggy picked the most gaudy sandals ever!!

Friday flew by! Yesterday was the cancer run, the same race that was my first ever last year. I was feeling good and ready to run! I really wanted to get 26:xx. Of course my Garmin died about half a mile in (which it did last year too) so I ran on feel alone. I definitely need to work on running by feel because I suck at it!! I started off fast and then couldn't get my rhythm. I rounded the final corner and when I could see the clock it said 26:59, ugh!! I crossed the line at 27:07. I was so mad at myself for not pushing harder! I could have done it! I ended up 4th in my age group and don't feel horrible about my time, I just wish it were 8 seconds faster!! I didn't get any pictures so this is a naked post.

It's Tuesday and I'm tired!

Yesterday passed in a blur, I don't even know what I did besides go to work and feed the kids and go to bed. Today was crap in the morning, work, Open House at the big girls school and finally cake and ice cream for my birthday. Now I'm just pooped!!
You may have noticed that there is no mention of exercise or eating recently, that is because I've simply been lazy! I ran Monday and last Wednesday (although both were lazy ass half run/half walk). Then my eating has been abysmal!! Tomorrow I am going to start another Whole 30, I felt great and then I just got lazy and it was SO easy to backslide! I feel like a sloth!!
Here are the pictures in no particular order.
