Good morning! President's Day which equals 2 hours of morning coffee time while reading blogs instead of working! Glorious! Even better that my kids are in school because they have Thursday and Friday off instead for Winter Break! Home alone, drinking coffee and reading blogs=the perfect Monday morning:)
I'm not even remotely organized with my thoughts here and this past week has been a whirlwind. As usual, I will just throw out what comes to mind so HEREYAGO!! (This is actually a word in Minnesota and I have myself saying it on video to prove it. The Minnesota, Canadian, Redneck combination accent is really quite becoming!! We talk funny and eat hotdish and meatloaf up here-HELP!)
Both of my girls are now in hockey playoffs. District tournaments were this weekend. BOTH of them won their tournaments. Ryan's team will have the #1 seed in the Regional tournament in 2 weeks.
I was traveling with Ryan this weekend and Joe was with Reese. Ryan finished her championship game and we hopped in the car and drove 90 mph for 2.5 hours and made it to the last ten minutes of Reese's championship game and then hopped in the car and made it to the 3rd period of Max's game. I bought a brand new vehicle less than 2 years ago. It has 131,000 miles on it.....
I haven't seen my husband or talked to him face to face for more than 2 minutes in FOREVER. He is working A LOT and his days off are spent traveling with whatever child I'm NOT traveling with....
Don't pay attention to my Daily Mile counter, I always forget to update it.
I ran 64 miles this week. I am happy about that. My speed workout went very very well. My tempo run was the longest I've attempted thus far. It didn't go quite as well and my confidence level from the beginning of the week faltered a bit. You win some you lose some-MOVE ON! Much easier said than done......
I need a maid.
I am getting a massage on Thursday which I received as part of a payment for playing piano at a wedding. Yes-it is like "Little House on the Prairie" up here and this is how we roll. A massage....NOT cash but better than chickens:) Anyway, I am looking forward to this. I used to have a bit of a phobia about being touched or something, so I would never get one. Well, when I finally went for it, they couldn't even get me OFF the table! Touch away!!!
Baby Theo was released from the hospital! He is doing AWESOME! Such a peanut!
We are all so happy to have him home! His baby shower will be March 12th and his baby dedication at church on March 13th when all my sisters can be home. Perhaps some of you know, I was supposed to run a 10 mile race 6 hours away on March 12th.......None of my family knew about this....they still don't know. I've finished processing this situation and I will spare you the emotional rollercoaster otherwise known as my feelings. Just a race right? I will replace it quickly with most likely a HM. It will be just an awesome weekend to have all my sisters together celebrating the life of an amazing little baby!
Speaking of HM's. Ana Maria pulled off a fantastic one this weekend! Check out her PR in crummy conditions on a course that seems AWFULLY long to me!! If I'm remembering right she's knocked off like 20 minutes on her half in the last 3 years. AMAZING! I'm pretty sure she just sits on her butt and eats potato chips:)
So, I will end this uninteresting post. I am working on a different, hopefully more interesting post that I will put out there soon! Hope you all had a wonderful weekend:)
