Back to Reality (Almost)

Last night was our last night of kid freedom.  Tonight we head north to get them and our jobs as parents will resume.  To be honest, I am missing them a lot.  To be really honest, I cherished every moment they were gone.  The week flew by for us but it was great to have such a nice break.  Thanks Mom and Dad!

We went out more this week than we have in the last 6 months.  We usually are too cheap to pay a babysitter $10-15 bucks an hour to watch our children that are usually in bed.  We normally really enjoy hanging out at home.  This week we tried new a couple newrestaurants and visited a fav, hung out with good friends, and played a little golf.   We did a lot of eating and drinking. It could not have had a better week, well, maybe if we didn't have to work.  We had quite a streak and I don't even want to assess the caloric damage.  All I am saying is my pants are a little snug today.  It was totally worth it though! 

Running this week has been rough.  I haven't been feeling great.  I have had no zip and my legs have been feeling like lead.  I went out a couple of times but didn't cover anywhere near the mileage that was scheduled.   I took a lot of walk breaks and then eventually gave up all together.  As it turned out, I got me a Summer cold.  Stuffy nose, muscle aches, and a sore throat.  Wonderful.  Chubby Hubby got it as well.  It came on yesterday.  I passed up my scheduled run last night while feeling like this but there was no way in hell I was letting a kid free night go to waste. We headed out for a beer and a burger instead.  A girl has to have her priorities.  I am chugging Airborne and resting up to get back into it.

I am looking forward to the weekend and seeing my kiddos. I am sure they have been crying the whole time because they have been so bored.  They look like they are having a horrible time!  Ha!!

Happy Friday!

Glad you had a nice week. Sorry it had to end with a cold.

Totally LOL at that first picture. My kids "swim" in my parents' hot tub too.

Still. So. Jealous. Too bad you get them back for the weekend! I guess that might be too much of a good thing. Hope you feel better, summer colds suck!

Enjoy the kids being home again!

Hi Carly,
Oh, it would be so great to be kid free for a week! I would most likely start to miss them after a day or two:) It sounds like you had a great time doing all sorts of fun things!

Happy weekend!

Happy reunion. I hope your cold goes away soon. It's no fun to try to run with a cold.
