Yay it’s already Thursday! I’m really looking forward to this weekend – so let’s get this week over with, alright?
1. I made a new Pinterest recipe tonight and I think I might be adding it to my regular rotation. It was so easy and it involved just these ingredients: pasta, pesto, chicken sausage, brussels sprouts, and parmesan cheese (and a little olive oil).
I HIGHLY recommend it (and the kids enjoyed it too)!
2. Mom Brag: B was SO excited to show me the book he took out from the Library today — his FIRST chapter book (one of the books in the Magic Treehouse series). He even shouted, “I can read it on my OWN!”
Honestly, I am amazed at what he can do at 6-years old. I’m not saying that because he’s a genius by any means, but I don’t think I started reading chapter books until 2nd grade and I was an advanced reader. Things are definitely different these days. I’m also impressed with his school — they offer ”book clubs” for grades 1-5 (1st and 2nd graders read Magic Treehouse, 3rd-5th read Harry Potter). I’m kinda jealous. I want to be in a Harry Potter book club.
We emailed back and forth about it and I realized — why the heck haven’t I run this race before? A) It’s a 5 miler which is the perfect short distance, B) It’s super close to home, and C) It’s on a Sunday (Track Shack races are usually on Saturdays which can be a logistics problem for me).
So, I’ve all but signed up. I figured it might help me with my mojo problem — and I think it’s already working. It helps that I get to run another race with Paula. I’ve missed my race buddy!! This is from our last race – in MARCH.
Anyone else running it?
