Um…….. it’s clearly been a while since my last post. At least its in the same month and year, so it could be worse.
Giving a little update on things also known as my life. Not in any particular order.
I am hosting Thanksgiving at my house for the FIRST time ever. Yeah and I’ve never cooked a turkey before. Chickens yes, but never a turkey. For the last 30 years I’ve always gone to my grandmothers house and had family dinner there. This year I really don’t want the stress of chasing two kids under 4 around an unsafe house. They redecorate, destroy and break things and I just want to relax. Alan and I made the right decision and felt it was a much needed opportunity to just enjoy our own family. We invited others over too.
I am still working 3 jobs in art. While it may seem a like a bit, it really isn’t much time or effort doing something I completely LOVE and ENJOY.
Goals for the month of November went out the window especially after my half marathon. I needed a break to just (LIVE) go with the flow of life. No set, I NEED to run this many miles today plan to follow and frankly I LOVE IT. My longest run has been 6.8 miles on a Sunday in the freezing cold. Next up the Turkey Trot on Thanksgiving. It’s been a long time since I’ve ran a 5K and excited to push it. My last race was a 10k and I hit a personal record at mile 3.1. I am ready to do it again. I will write December goals, that’s a promise.
Both boys are doing well. Speaking of well, we had a well appointment for them last week. 18 months and 4 years require shots. We sat in the waiting room for 40 mins before someone called us, after I said to the receptionist how much longer? It wasn’t the first time we’ve waiting a long time, but I was PMSing and pissed. So I walked out and said don’t bother rescheduling us, we are done here. It’s NOT okay to have 2 little kids wait more than 15 mins to be seen and it would probably have waiting in the room for another 20 mins for the doctor and 30 mins for the appointment. Making it over two hours of being there. NO thanks. So I found a new place to go.
I also had company last week. I took care of a 4 month old on top of watching both boys. Man it was work and makes me question WHY on earth we want another one?!! I must drink more wine. End of story.
What have you been up to lately? Is anyone still around reading this crap?
