It’s Marathon Monday!
I wish everyone in Boston a happy, fun, and safe marathon. I, like so many runners, stand beside you today, in honor of the past and hopeful for the future. <3 The Boston Marathon Bombing of 2013 taught me many things about life, but it did not teach me to fear standing at a starting line.
Today – I’ll be sweating for Boston. Won’t you join me? I wish I’d be able to RUN for Boston today, but alas – I ran Saturday and Sunday (how’s that for getting back on the bandwagon?!), and I could probably use a running break. Maybe I’ll swim? Or stairclimb?
The only place that I’ll be running to today is the GROCERY STORE. We are plum out of food. I was thankful to have eggs and toast in the fridge – that’s all I ever really want to eat for breakfast anyway! Hah. But some berries would’ve been nice…
And, if you celebrate, I hope you had a fabulous Easter! I grew up celebrating the holiday in a secular way (basically – CHOCOLATE), as did the Husband, so we decided to continue the tradition with little Mr. Henry. My mother was in town, so the three adults had a blast hiding 42 plastic eggs (filled with one M&M each) and watching the cutest toddler in the universe find each and every one.
He was WAY more into it than I thought he would be for 22 months! He caught onto the point pretty fast – we ‘hid’ a bunch in plain sight on the deck, and by the time he hit the grass, he was an old pro. When he was all done, he shook an egg and realized that something was inside… He cracked those things open so fast! And inhaled 42 M&Ms faster than I could think, “Sugar high!” It was really fun.
I hope you have a fabulous Monday. Today, I am thinking hard of everything I appreciate about life… And wishing the Boston Marathon runners’ a fun and safe race!
Have a good one.
