Thursday and Friday night, my oldest son had his first grade music performance and school play. He is amazing because he feels right at home on stage. I wish I had the confidence this kid has. Just the thought of giving a speech in front of my peers is enough make me vomit.
I thought I got to the school early enough for primo seating by getting there both nights half an hour early. Oh, how I was wrong! I walked into a full lunchroom/gym/auditorium and found a seat in the way back. Those parents with the good seats must have camped out the night before.
Next to us, was the lady running the schools video camera recording the show. Lucky her, she had my family sitting next to her picking up all the commentary from my kids. I am sure she has recorded Diva standing up and yelling "I HAVE TO POOP" and my son saying "What kind of stupid thing is this?". Because I had photography duty myself, Chubby Hubby had to remove the children and watch from the hallway.
Saturday was OCD cleaning day at our house. Our yard is raked, deck is scrubbed, and we have bags upon bags of stuff for donation. I did make time for a short run that was only about a mile and a half. Truthfully the run kind of sucked. I actually wrote a really whiney post about it but promptly deleted it because whiney isn't going to get me anywhere. Then my day was made....Sarge sent me a message! She is currently serving active duty and I don't get to hear from her that often. For those of you that do not know, Sarge is my running partner and the person that kicks my ass and keeps me honest. I miss her and just hearing from her put a smile on my face.
Sunday was the day of insanity. I got up and I ran 2.25 miles without stopping. I know it is not a distance to write home about but it is a good milestone for me. I was very happy to cross the 2 mile threshold. After the run, it was all about running errands....Target, a newborn photoshoot, birthday party pick up, back to Target, and a night of photo editing. I was exhausted but it felt awesome to be so productive.
This week, I can am shooting to hit 3 miles by Sunday. I am not sure if I will make it, but I am going to try very very hard. I am also going to try and catch up on my blog reading/commenting.
