I’m Still Alive!

It’s true… I’M STILL ALIVE!

Did a major holiday happen or something?



These past few weeks have been a blur. Hell, these last 12 MONTHS have been a blur. Hello December, how did we get here???

I really can’t believe Thanksgiving was a WEEK ago! It was a great holiday. I REALLY enjoyed those four days off. I prepped and ate lots of food. I mean, A LOT of food. More than half is still in my fridge though, so I’m 100% sure I’m not going to be cooking an extravagant Thanksgiving dinner for a while.

Next year will be simpler. And possibly without the turkey.

After Thanksgiving we took our traditional family holiday photos. To sum it up: exhausting, but also hilarious….








We did manage to get a few good ones though so I couldn’t just skip out on the Christmas Card. I was tempted though.

This week is my first week back to 40 hours and I’m already hating it. I looooooved my Fridays with Evan. However, my bank account will be happy. I might try to work from home once a week so I can sneak in some E time, but we’ll see.

And finally…. this Saturday is my next half marathon!! I’m pretty excited, even though it’s supposed to be warm and humid. And the last time I ran was a 10 miler a week and a half ago. I also still don’t have a Garmin. I’m going to buy the new 220. I think. Until then, I can’t decide if I want to try to borrow one from someone (umm, anyone have a Garmin/GPS watch I can borrow?) or just wing it. I know that Track Shack DOES provide a clock at most mile markers, so I wouldn’t be running completely clueless. I also don’t know what I’m going to wear yet — and I might commit the cardinal sin of wearing something new that I haven’t worn on a long run. I KNOW I’m not going to be PRing this thing, so it’s really just another training run… where I push a little harder than usual.

So, yeah, that’s what’s going on with me. I’m busy, tired, not running much, and trying not to overdo it during the holidays (HA!). What’s going on with you?

    LOL to already hating your first 40 hour week back. We’re not even at Friday yet dude!

    That first pic of you and L is the first time ever that I totally see that she looks like you. So cute!

    Why don’t we know more people with Garmins? You can use mine if you really need one for the race.

      Just knowing that I don’t get to spend a leisurely day with E SUCKS! I miss him like no other at work. It’s just another day of missing him ;(

      Everyone always thinks Livie looks like me. I see it a little bit, but she looks a lot like Dan!

      I don’t know that I *really* need one. I’m kinda torn.

    Oh no I can’t stand the cuteness that is Evan in his little dress shirt and tie.

    I am lucky to work a 4/10 schedule all the time (government). So I have every Monday off and I’m sure it will come in handy for pediatrician visits and maybe even some mommy and me activities. But the long work days the rest of the week will be rough once our little guy arrives. I’m gone from 6:15am to 6:30pm. But luckily I do have onsite daycare so he’ll be my commute buddy for as long as I want him close. I just worry that I won’t get any work done because I’ll be walking across the parking lot 6 times a day to see him.
