possession...probably a cross that my mom had made for me when I got ordained. It is in the shape of a cross my dad got me before he died and that I have tattooed on my side, and she had his wedding ring melted down and made into a dogwood flower in the center.
that, and I also found the PERFECT pair of jeans recently!
I have just a few minutes to post (and try to catch up!) before the packing resumes. we are CD'ing on this trip and I swear it's like planning a battle. But I did run today at the gym, almost 4 miles and I watched the spelling bee on ESPN! It was great. The kids are so cute and so thrilled with themselves, and rightfully so...those words are HARD.
bbm--glad everything is good with you and the peanut! I always needed a looooong warmup when I was running pg. Like, if I did 3 miles, the first two miles were the warmup. But it's awesome that you're out there wogging.
creb--hope you're feeling better now! it's so easy to get dehydrated.
balancin1--welcome! I trained for a marathon with a nursing toddler and honestly, I would sneak out without nursing her on the days I had my superlong runs. If I nursed her before the long ones, I could notice a difference in how I felt. But she was down to a few times a day by then and was okay with waking up with just daddy.
kerc--belatedly...I'm sorry you didn't get the job. They don't know what they're missin'
okay, got to go resume the pack-fest. my dh is so great and hands-on, but how does it fall to me to pack the kids clothes/diapers? he would say it's because I care about things like if they....um....match. well, yep.
take care y'all, I'll miss you guys and try to scan the thread when I can. My granddaddy STILL hasn't died, poor guy, so hopefully he can let go soon.
