Today marks exactly one month until my first 5k. I have found that I really enjoy running outside (trust me, words I never thought would come out of my mouth) and will do whatever I can to avoid running on the treadmill (more words that have never come out of my mouth). The current weather pattern is helping my desire to be outside; Annie and I have been outside at some point over the last 4 days.
BIG NEWS: Annie had tubes put in her ears last Friday. ABOUT TIME! These tubes better solve all of her infections; I have no idea what I’ll do if they don’t. Annie had a 6th and final double ear infection just before the surgery, and while she was on antibiotics from her 5th infection. I’m over it.
BIGGER NEWS: I have been wearing a size 14 for at least 8 months. Today, I wore a pair of jeans in a size 12. IN. PUBLIC.
I have been moving at about 8 million miles an hour, and only in the last 3 days have I had a chance to breathe. I’ve been a little overwhelmed, but I’ve been able to smile through the whole thing, and it hasn’t been a fake smile. I am loving my life, my daughter, and my husband, and all that I have surrounding me.
