I’m writing two posts tonight…a general catch-you-up one and a recipe one.
Life has gone on. Matt’s traveling this week; this is his annual geek conference in San Fransisco. I’m looking forward to Friday night when he comes home, but I appreciate the feeling of missing him. We both apologized for what had been happening over the past two years before he left. I love loving Matt.
The weather has been so nice recently, and we’ve been taking advantage of it. I’ve recognized that Annie needs to use her energy outside of the house, and not just going to the grocery store. We had a great day of the park and playing with our neighbor on Sunday; Anne slept for over 14 hours that night. Luckily, this week is very “unplanned,” so I took advantage of that today. We went to two different playgrounds, had pancakes at IHOP (it’s Free Pancake Day), and a special treat of ice cream after one playground experience. I have the best kid.
Running had been a struggle last week, but I’ve made a point this week to get back into it. 7 1/2 weeks until the 5k. I finally ran outside on Monday. I think I like running outside over on the treadmill, it’s not nearly as boring. I didn’t kill myself, just a little over a mile with some walking too. Anyone interested in an outside run sometime this weekend?
Here we are on the eve of Leap Year 2012, and I’ll do a quick recap of my resolutions. The running is clearly going, I’m not sure well, but I’m able to propel myself forward. The actual weight loss is an unending battle that one day I will concur. My quest to organize our house is at a complete stand still. I have to start this soon, none of our dresser’s can hold much more.
All in all, for nearly three months into this new, life-changing, year life is 100 times better than it was this time last year. (Of course, this time last year, I was about to go on a very lovely Caribbean vacation, and this year I’m not.) Life Goes On. 🙂
