It’s been a pretty good week around here … how was yours?

I’m still trying to find the new ‘rhthym’ with having my Sweets home during the week many times {he’s on a new rotating work schedule}. It’s been an adjustment {for me} to have him in “my space” while the Little is at school. Not bad, at all … I love being able to lunch together, run errands or go on an impromptu day date … but it’s an adjustment. I’m a creature of habit. Adjusting isn’t easy for me, but it’s good for me!
Let’s take a peek at the happening through my phone’s camera lens::

Phew, done. LONGEST run yet for the half marathon training. Next week is a 7 miler. Eeeeep!!

My favorite little lady joined us for the evening while her parents enjoyed a much needed date. Gosh I love being her “Auntie.” She enjoyed a lime chaser {no alcohol involved} while we made a batch of oatmeal chocolate chip cookies {skip those dried cherries and just add more chips!}.

Easter Sunday.
Me in old rags that matched the Little’s new threads {Sweets matched too, but he prefers to be behind the camera, and not let people know he was matchy-matchy}.
Oh and there “she” is … trying to work her way into the photo too!
Sunday evening run … into the sun!
Uhm sorry for the influx of running related photos. It IS life right now. At least 4 x a week and I’m trying to document each one on my journey to a half marathon so I can make a little book at the end. It may never happen again!
In case you’ve wondered where the # with the miles for the month comes from … @hausofgirls started it a year ago as a fun online ‘support/motivation/enouragement’ group to GET MOVING. It doesn’t have to be miles ran … it can be miles walked, biked or elliptical-ed … just GET GOING and let us cheer you on!
The best run is a DONE run. Man are my feet tired these days!
Despite everything in me NOT wanting to do this run, I did it and was quite surprised at my *almost* less than 10min/mile pace. The carrot dangling in front of me? Knowing FRIDAY meant a REST day and a NAP!!
And look at those “cherry blossoms” … our street is lined with these trees and the flowers last less than 2 weeks so I’m glad I got to enjoy them!
life rearranged
Wishing you a wonderful weekend!
Mine is going to be filled with another run and time with the Little while the Sweets is at work.
