Brrrrr....I am SO over the COLD

We are in yet another frozen period.  I am SO over this.  I am not saying I need 70s but I would like maybe 30s or 40s...Lillie and I get bored in the house.  I am so thankful that we don't 'have' to go anywhere, but it would be nice to have the option.

  • She sleeps great.
  • She loves to ROAR!
  • She plays with her toys but really likes to shred paper.
  • She is in love with Sammy.  They play so well together.
  • She likes to crawl everywhere...but took her first step on Sunday, Jan 19th. She walked from her learning table to the ottoman.

  • She is the love of our lives.

{{Back in Gear}

Over the weekend, I discovered a new running group (just starting up) at our local Y.  Most if the people are beginning runners.  It put a light in me.  I met up with a couple of them Saturday afternoon and ran.  It was so refreshing to see running through their eyes.  I remember beginning running and I celebrated EVERY victory.  I loved being able to share my years of running (10 years in July!)  I have high hopes for this group.

Tomorrow am is half marathon training and I can't wait for my 5 am wake up!

{{Keeping it real}}

so let's see, the last time I ran was um, December 28th.  Hmm.  I am going to blame the weather.  Although I fear most was laziness.  Well, next Tuesday am starts half marathon training.  Gotta get my rear in gear.  I am following a new plan for this race - running 5 times a week.  I hope this is the right plan.  It seems realistic and as long as I get my week day runs in at 5:30 (on the dreadmill) I can run the weekend run outside. 

that is the plan 12 weeks..eating healthy, running...getting ready for the beach!

Condo is booked!!

Well, Lillie hasn't left the house since Dec 29th.  I only left briefly to go to church.  It is SOO cold.  Jeff worked from home the past two days.  It is strange to have him gone today.  Lillie keeps yelling 'da-da' all over the place.  But all good things must come to an end.

With Jeff at the office, I am able to get back into our normal routine - laundry!
