I’m sorry I slacked on the recipes last week. I have plenty of recipes to tell everyone about, and I will this week, I swear. On the flip side, I registered for my 5k!!!! Even though I’ve registered, I’ve been slacking in the running. My mistake was not staying with my schedule while Matt was gone; I decided to sleep in on Wednesday. I’m about 4 days behind on my training schedule. Now I have to start thinking about running outside, and potentially training with other people. April 14th is a lot closer than when I started training.
No surprise, Annie has consumed me for the last week. Aside from my typical mom consumption, Annie had a cold starting Thursday, then a fever on Friday. Tylenol wasn’t bringing her fever down and she slept with me Friday night (even when she was a newborn, she’s never slept in our bed), so we went to the pediatrician on Saturday. Fifth double ear infection since November, and Annie’s on antibiotics until she has her tubes in in 16 days. This also ruined my very well laid plan for going to the gym on Saturday. Since Annie’s ear infections started, the pediatrician has noticed a slight murmur in Annie’s heart; we saw a cardiologist today to check it. She’s fine. One of the front desk ladies at the pediatrician’s practically knows our credit card number, she’s seen us so much.
I love Matt. In some strange way, the way I feel about Matt is almost similar to how I felt when we first started dating. I’m giddy to see him every evening. When he came home on Saturday, I didn’t want to let go of him. As you can all attest to, not very long ago I was second-guessing my marriage. This is where I belong.
Matt had a daddy-daughter day on Monday, as I had training at work. He’s done this before, but Annie’s energy level is way different now. They went to the park and went on the swings and the slide, and then they got the mail and then walked over to school to get me. Matt leaves again on Monday, and I am already looking forward to his return on Friday.
Tomorrow, I swear, recipes! I’m trying a stellar (well, hopefully) Crock Pot recipe for dinner tomorrow, and it will be fresh in my mind. I’m hoping to make you all drool.
