Good morning! Howâ€™s it going?
Things are great â€“ but busy â€“ over here. Over the past two weeks, Iâ€™ve had a lot going on, and I kind of feel like a headless chicken, running around frantically to get it all done. Iâ€™ve been up to my eyeballs in writing deadlines, which is a good thing. But still â€“ whew.
One thing thatâ€™s been going REALLY well lately is meals. Weâ€™ve decided to start sitting at the table for all our meals, and Henry really loves it (instead of the high chair in the kitchen â€“ man, am I really thankful I did not spring for a $$$ highchair). Sometimes, my meals donâ€™t line up with Henryâ€™s, but I sit at the table with him anyway and peel potatoes for dinner or do the bills.
Oh, yogurt messes. Iâ€™m so glad that youâ€™re back in my life full force!
So, although I feel frantic during the day, Iâ€™m trying to carve out time to relax at night. I have a bunch of half-finished DIY projects around the house, but that doesnâ€™t seem too appealing, so I have been opting to space out in front of the TV. Iâ€™m OBSESSED with Downton Abbey.
I did read a book that shall not be named on an airplane on Fridayâ€¦ I hate to talk badly about books so I wonâ€™t reveal the title. But when I got to the paragraph where the doctor told the pregnant lady that it â€œmay take two or three pushes to get the baby out,â€ and then the lady delivered her baby in three pushes, I laughed so hard that I cried and then I stopped reading entirely. I know itâ€™s possible to do it in three, but no doctor would say that to a first time mom before she starts! Hell, I pushed hundreds of times before Henry was born. Clearly, this book was written by a guy.
Henry is doing lots of quality reading! Here are his favorite books of the moment:
And last, but not least, hereâ€™s my weekly recap of Last Weekâ€™s Workouts. It was a stepback week, which was nice considering I was so busy with work.
Monday: 1000 yard swim
Tuesday: 2100 yard swim + 30 minute run
Thursday: 1 hour bike + 2300 yard swim
Friday: 1 hour 15 minute run
Saturday: 30 minute bike
Sunday: 2:30 bike, 20 minute run
Totals: 5400 yards of swimming, 13ish miles of running, 4 hours of biking
So â€“ howâ€™s it all going for you? Reading anything fun lately? Watching any good TV? Completing some epic workouts? Pushing any babies out?
