Everyone say, “Hi, GrandpaHTP!”
Henry and I flew (solo! and we clearly survived!) down to Florida for a super mini family reunion. Although I’ve seen my grandfather a few times since, this was only the second time that he’s seen Henry. They first met when Henry was about 8 weeks old.
Doesn’t my grandpa look like he’s doing better? He’s 96 years old (I think – I always confuse his birth year up!), but he’s doing a LOT better than he was last year or even a few months ago.
We had a really nice visit. Henry and I stayed in a nearby hotel and drove over in between naps and bedtimes to hang out. The weather in Florida was foggy but warmed up quickly – it was nearly 80 one day! That was a nice change of pace from the Charlotte snow.
On the way to the airport in Orlando, I met up with my buddy Healthy Ashley and her husband Richard. Ashley and I were great friends when I lived in Orlando and did a lot of training and racing together. I spectated as she did her first Half Ironman (it should be noted that it was also her very first triathlon EVER), and we did a Metric Century bike ride together. Ashley eventually moved to North Carolina and got married in a beautiful wedding ceremony. Then she was in a horrible bike accident… Remember that? Thank God, she’s fully recovered! And then she moved BACK to Florida. And now she’s a CrossFit addict. Oh, did I mention she’s 37 weeks pregnant?! Woman is still totally in better shape than I am! Hah.
Baby out, baby in.
And now I’m back home…
And eating healthy eats. Oh kitchen, how I missed you.
Plans for Today:
Run 8 miles per my training plan. Oh man.
Organize my desk. Double oh man.
Pay bills – they’re late!
I hope you have a fabulous Monday <3 <3 <3
