I am currently in recovery mode from the most amazing 2 1/2 childless days in over a year. AHHHHHHHHHH! I could say it over and over again. I am trying to adjust back into my mommy role and shake off the freedom I felt for about 55 hours. I am a firm believe that moms need their time and it makes us much much better at what we do when we get some time to our self. (hence we all run!)
I unfortunately I took virtually no pictures as I forgot my camera but the memories are quite vivid. I saw some friends that I have not seen in ages, but have known since I was very young. It is great when you see those people that no matter how long it has been since you saw them, it seems like it was just yesterday.
I got home just in time Sunday morning to take Oscar to a Birthday party and Googles just love these Elton John sunglasses...we can't keep them off of him.
We had some very large rains last week so my garden is a bit of a rain forest right now. I came home to so much broccoli, the picture below does not even due it any justice. All the broccoli was flowering so I decided to whip up about 2 gallons of broccoli soup with cabbage and carrots....can you say colon cleanse? I will probably be eating this soup around the clock until Wednesday....as I ought not be eating it too close to Marathon Weekend! Can you imagine the port-o-potty stoppage that would occur? I am a firm believer that your time should stop when you cross the threshold of the pot-o-john...It's only fair right?
So, now it is Monday and Marathon numero- uno is less than 1 week away. I have not run in a few days due to the weekend with friends and also because I became a bit nervous about my left knee. My knee just feels off...almost like I hyper extended it maybe? I don't think it is anything major, but since I did 12 last Monday and a few short runs I decided to skip this past weekends 8 miler. I am getting really excited, really nervous and really ready for this weekend of fun!
Sorry this is ALL over the place.
How was your weekend?
Any great runs?
Are you crafty? scrap booking? card making?
