Do you ever have those mornings where you don’t feel “all there”? I’ve been having a string of them lately, and I can only assume that it’s because Ana has recently acquired the ability to be our own personal alarm clock. Every morning at 6am, she’s standing right next to our bed, staring at me and shouting “Good Morning!” There are worse ways to wake up, but still. How can I reset her to seven? Or eight?
Wes turned twenty-eight yesterday. Ana picked out a Tinkerbell birthday cake for him earlier in the week, and we picked it up on Wednesday and had a nice little birthday dessert before we had to leave for church. I took him out yesterday for dinner at Outback (his favorite) and the Star Trek movie. I would have never in a million years picked this movie on my own, but it actually turned out to be pretty good. I actually enjoyed a Star Trek movie! Will wonders never cease?
We started running again this week after a winter hiatus. (A winter hiatus that stretched into and through the entire spring. Ha!) I’m a wimp when it comes to running in the cold, but hundred degree temps? I can run in those, so this is my season. We had kept in reasonable shape with the stationary bike but still figured that getting back up to three miles a day would be as long and difficult as it was last year when we were completely out of shape. We started with just a ten minute run on Monday, and by yesterday, I was back up to eighteen minutes. With much clutching of the chest and gasping for breath, of course, but still. I plan on being back up to thirty minutes/three miles by the end of next week if my old lady legs will allow for it. Here’s hoping! Ana is super excited that we’re providing daily “stroller rides” again, and Emma is tolerating it. Ha!
And I think that’s about all that’s going on here. Big week next week, as the girls go down to San Antonio for “Camp Coach” and as I sit around and wonder what to do with no children. We’re having revival services at our church during the first half of the week and children’s camp at Falls Creek during the second half of the week, so… wow. I guess I won’t have to sit around and wonder what to do, will I? I’m actually going to be glad for the busy schedule and even more glad that Ana and Emma will be off having fun in Texas instead of trying to keep up. This is preferable to sitting around, missing them, which I’m sure I won’t do at all, right? Suuuurrre.
Hope you have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!
