WOW. It has certainly been an incredibly busy here!!
First things first – I promised you all a link to the article when it came out. So here it is.
Saturday was a breath of fresh air. LITERALLY. We left the house [!!!!!!] and ran some errands, feeling more than lucky to get out. That afternoon I had a horrible run that I won’t revisit because I’m over it, and that night we went out with friends who we haven’t seen in forever. We absolutely love this family, and it was great to see them. Somehow I managed to not snap a single photo… Figures.
Sunday was packed full of football, and the greatest treat of all was when my sister in law and her daughter came to visit!!!!! We haven’t seen them in about a month, but it feels like forever. We were both gone during the holidays, and schedules finally meshed for a play date. Again, my camera apparently was hiding from me… I had zero time to run, which in retrospect was probably a good thing…
This morning I attended a class on Stress Free Parenting. It’s a 6 week course that meets once a week, and I am REALLY looking forward to it. I can safely say that with my short time in motherhood, I have developed way more patience, but I strive to be a better mom. There is room for improvement, and I have high hopes for this class. Heck, we learned things today that I have already applied to life, so there you have it!
The highlight of the day was the husband’s promotion. I am beyond giddy about this. There is so much about that man that I admire, that it would take me all day to write it all out. While the promotion was automatic, I definitely feel as though he truly earned this. His sense of humor, integrity, and perseverance always astound me, and everyday I wake up feeling so incredibly blessed for having the opportunity to be his wife. I can’t wait to see what else Army life has in store for us, and I know that whatever card he is dealt, that he will do the best to his ability. Anyway, I’ll shut up now because I’m a hormonal mess and could start sobbing at the drop of a hat”]
I plan on running later, which will probably have to be on a treadmill at the gym… help me.
Hope everyone had a great Monday!
