I feel like I’m just surfacing. My weekend was consumed by a huge last-minute freelance project. I’m not complaining about the chance to work, but man – it was crazy. I wrote ten pieces over two days (that’s a LOT!). After I hit publish on this post, I’m all worded out… until tomorrow.
I spent about five hours on Saturday writing at my favorite local coffee house, FABO Café. They are dog-friendly, so James came with me. He very much enjoyed getting out of the house and being petted by loads of people.
It was nice to get out of the house, drink wine, eat chocolate, and have no responsibilities except work.
My responsibilities are pretty darn cute, though…
You can’t see it, but his shirt says: Who needs an alarm clock when you have me? So true, Henry. So true.
Let’s see… what else? Oh, in between articles, I helped the Husband give Henry his first hair cut. We were just going to trim the back, and then we went nuts on his bangs. Next thing I knew, I was penning an entry in his baby book while simultaneously sobbing that my little boy was all grown up.
And last, but certainly not least, I managed to go to the pool today. I banged out 1,000 yards – so proud! Especially in combination with yesterday’s speedy 5.0 mile run, I’m feelin’ pretty good about my workouts.
My new swimming trick is to only commit to swimming 250 yards at a time. I take a break every 250 yards, and then I convince myself to do another 5 laps. I probably would’ve stopped at 750 if I had just been working towards the larger goal. It’s silly, but it really seems to work for me.
Can you believe the weekend is almost over? It flew by! Here’s to another great week!
I do a similar swim trick! Swim 4 laps, take a break. I also vary my strokes to add some variety 🙂
