Three Things Thursday

1. The gym is just not in my future today. Baby girl and I are flying solo and she just decided to settle down for a nap. It is 4:12 pm here. We had to go to the grocery store to wear her out! It should be an interesting rest of the day... I hate how I get going and hit all my runs one week and then lose all momentum the next. ugh... Not long now until the Indy Mini (May 7). The distance is not a problem for me. I just want to do it faster!

2. I have a lot of baking and cooking on the agenda for the next few days. A friend of ours is spending time away from home as she cares for her little guy in the NICU. Newbie and I are hoping to go see her Saturday with chicken enchiladas, chips and salsa, oatmeal, cereal bars, cheerios muffins, chocolate chip cookies galore... I have felt helpless the last few weeks for her as she as gone through this and I feel like all of this cooking and baking will help me feel more useful. Ever heard that saying, "Once you become a mother, you feel like every kid is yours"? I am so there right now and it just sucks...

3. I am ready to say ADIOS to February. Or maybe I should sing a little Cee Lo to it:

I am over all the misery that it has brought to all of our family and friends. I am over the weather and I am just ready for spring. Spring is the time of rebirth, right? I think we could all use a little of that right now!


  1. I'm so with you on the Spring thing. Where is it already??

    Sending warm thoughts to your friend and her new family. That must be so hard to go through.. I can't even imagine.
