Yay Zubeldia! You did great! Congatulate yourself and relish it. That's an awesome time. And oh, yeah, you had a baby less than a year ago and you're working full-time. For the love of all that's good, pat yourself on the back!
Poppy, Way to go on the PR!!! You've had so many obstacles and you should be so proud of yourself! I like to *think* I can run a half-marathon, but really, all I can't run even half of a half. So, pat yourself on the back and enjoy some downtime before RAGNAR! And enjoy that time overseas. Yay for leaving the shoes behind.
Jooj, those are a lot of eggs. Building fences is a lot of work! What a day. Do you get to make up Spa day?
La, I recently read that one of my heroines, Emily Hahn, took books with her everywhere she went (which I do) but she actually read them at anyone's house. She had a reputation for taking breaks from conversations to curl up in a quiet spot and read before returning to the conversation. Give yourself permission. I would probably accost you if you were one of my kid's friends and you were quietly reading somewhere. Yeah, I'd probably ruin the moment b/c I'd want to be your instant friend!
And yay for donuts in the family!!! That rocks!
Eagle, I'm so impressed by anyone who can flip off the wall. I've tried and tried and I have some mental barrier I think. Hope your knee heals soon.
Nick, I like the setlzer/juice idea. I've been good not drinking Diet Cokes, but all it takes is going to my mil's house and 1 DC and my body craves it. There must be something addictive in it.
Callie, that playground race with dd sounds fun. Reminds me of the obstacle courses my 2 boys like to create, only I like to make them do all the running just to wear them out.
DrJen, good luck with the new admin this week. Let us know how it goes. I'd be frustrated, too, with having to refer a procedure you can do perfectly well yourself.(And I have nothing to report. I just wanted to say hi. )
