It was soooo nice to have a long weekend! Back to work though, at least for a few days. Hope you had a blessed, wonderful Christmas! Now that the day has passed and the memory settled I think it could’ve been one of the best ever! At least from a gift and health standpoint. The boys had been sick but recovered enough to enjoy the day and it felt so great to be in our new home and host dinner for everyone. Jim got me the book “A Hand to Guide Me” by Denzel Washington and the new Taylor Hicks cd. He also hit a home run in the clothes department! My man has taste!:) He bought me some outfits and I was impressed. The boys and I also focused on wardrobe for him too. Now that he has a real office he likes to dress up more but he’s a good old’ boy and had a closet full of flannel mostly. That’s fine with me but you need some variety too.:) He loves Ralph Lauren Polo and he’ll be set for a little while. The boys were blessed with lots of gifts (thanks to Santa and Grammie)! They’ve been having a blast ever since and Gabe’s Nintendo DS is a major hit! I love playing Super Mario Brothers!! It’s so much fun, poor Gabe is going to have to share his game with daddy and mommy! Lol.:)
Last night I ran 3.5 miles at the Y. I told myself I would start training for the half marathon in January. For some reason I just don’t have a threshold for anything more than 4 miles. I just get bored and tired and want to quit. Once I get past that hump I’m sure I can do it, I just need to stay committed. It’s still hard to find the time I need and not feel overly guilty about training. To be honest, I think that’s my biggest issue. When I’m on the treadmill for 35 minutes my mind is drifting to the boys and feeling bad for leaving them in the child watch area. Garrett has been VERY clingy lately and has a difficult time with anyone other than me. He’s been teething and sick so naturally he wants his mommy.:) Last night I was just overcome with guilt for being apart from him and weighing my reasons for working out. Why? What is so important about running when I could be with my kids? I’m not overweight, I’m in somewhat good shape, what is the point? I know I set a goal and I want to acheive it but I need to decide if it’s the right time. Anyway, that’s my mindset lately. Better get going, enjoy the last full week of 2006!
