It was only 3.6 miles but it felt great. 

 

Now I am going to do something totally unlike me...and go to the mall with my mom and daughter to meander around while dh takes ds to the funplex arcade (too much overstimulation for me).

 

Real, glad to know you're safe! Any chance we can hook up?

 

Love to all the Dingoes!

RP is now allowed to walk, so we've been walking on alternate nights.  It's better than nothing.  A groupon came around for something 4 miles from here for 5:30 am boot camp.  I'm tempted, but these caffeine-free eyes droop at the thought.
 

My MIL left this morning.  My ears are still ringing. 

 

Gaye and Lisa-- I'm glad you arrived at your destinations safely.  It was pretty treacherous around here that day as well.  My in-laws insisted on leaving that day anyways instead of staying an extra day.  Instead, they made it 60 miles and stopped in a hotel for the night. 

 

Take care of yourself, Nic!

Well that was nice of them! winky.gif

 

Real - OMG! what must you have done in your last life to bring on all these travel horrors in this one?  That's all laugh or cry stuff!  I hope the return home makes up for it.

 

Nic - Have fun at the mall!

 

RR: Yesterday boxing was intense and then I did a bunch more dancing until I couldn't really move my arms anymore and I started tripping over myself.  I have a dance class in an hour or so.  I really want to go even though i'm pretty tired.  I think it will be a nice time to get centered.

 

NRR: Just super psyched for Lofty's arrival tomorrow, and the forecast calls for dry weather!!! I think today is about the first day in months that we haven't had at least some pouring rain.  I would be so excited if it was actually sunny for Lofty and fam.  A girl can dream!

Real, That trip is unfreakingbelieavable. Hope it's all worth it just to be there. hug.gif

Geo, a few quiet days sound good. I'd be envious if I wasn't going to see

PLADY tomorrow! bouncy.gif So freaking excited. energy.gif I don't even know how many years it's been. Funny thing is, it just feels so normal, like it's just part of my regular life and we'll pick up where we left off. orngbiggrin.gif

After 7 days of 12 people in one house I think everyone's on trying not to blow their nice-ness. Though it has been fun. And good.

Plady, shall we run?

Real - I hope you have finally had a decent night's sleep!

 

Not much sleep around here the last few nights. The girls have been having friends over for sleepovers and while it brings a wonderful energy into our house and it is great having lots of kids around it means not a lot of sleep for me. I have had a massive headache for three days now and hope today will be the end of it. 

 

Lots of knitting going on in shanti-land - a couple of patterns written that I hope will highlight my hand dyed yarns for this new shop. Is anyone interested in doing some test knitting at some point? I don't have yarn to include with the pattern yet but I will soon, I hope. I meet with the store owner this afternoon and I am looking forward to that. If the new shop has space and facilities for dyeing and I can move that whole process out of my kitchen/dining room that will be amazing. A couple of other shops have asked about carrying my yarns so I will see what her expectations are and make a plan from there. The wage for working in the shop isn't that great - which is fine because it is a new store and it is still retail after all - but having the freedom to sell my yarn and make some kits to sell will make this job more liveable for me. It is part time and I can continue my studies when I am not working.

 

I can't remember - do we have any graphic designer Dingoes? I am trying to design a label and I can't quite figure out how to get my computer to do what I want. It is simple - just brand name and my location, ideally in white lettering on a coloured background with a simple logo - as I will print off individual fibre content/yardage/guage suggestions on stick-on labels for each weight of yarn. I figure it will be better in the long run to have one label that I can adapt rather than having to print off a different card-stock type label for each and every kind of yarn.

 

Time to wake and feed the teenagers. Watch my fridge empty!

real~Ugh...I thought my trip was bad, but I think yours may top it! Hope all is well and you aren't having too much in-law (or DH) trouble!

shanti~Poppy does some design...she's done our dingo shirts the past few years.

I am a slug. Ugh. I have wimped out entirely on running the past two days. In my defense, it has been snowy and not great conditions for running (especially since I forgot my yaktrax). Blech. On the bright side, I haven't been a total pig eating-wise, so maybe it won't be too terrible. There is, of course, the small matter of that 5k I'm running on NYE, but it's *just* a 5k, right? bag.gif

shanti - wave.gif I'd be happy to. Just PM me your details and size of the label you need, so I can lay it up properly. I will send you some options to mull over.

Made it to Plady's house. Fabulous dinner bc she's an incredible cook! Great fun hanging out. Can't believe it's been 5 years. Feels like I've just jaunted across the island instead of the country.

RR: tomorrow smile.gif

Geo, I'm glad your RP is back at it. Congrats on surviving the IL visit.

tjsmama, we all know how you do best on "under training". Enjoy the 5k.

Lofty and Plady, have fun!!!

Shanti, I hope you catch up on sleep soon. The yarn and all of the knitting sounds like a dream job.

RR- Going climbing with my youngest this afternoon.

NRR- We seem to have slowly started the annual post-Christmas decluttering and house re-organization. The tree still needs to come down, but the living room furniture has already been rearranged and the garage partly cleaned.

MelW - we are also in the midst of the post-Christmas clean and purge! Like you the tree is still up, but DH is reorganizing the basement and I'm putting the gifts where they actually belong before vacuuming. All three kids have been out sledding on the paltry 2 inches of snow we got two days ago and having a blast!

Plady and Lofty - hope you're having a great visit!

tjsmama - undertraining is your secret weapon! You'll do great!

Shanti - your new job sounds dreamy. Enjoy!

RR - Ran and walked for 40 minutes on Friday while DS was at swim practice. I still have really annoying numbness on the top of my foot. Hopefully it's just a transient effect of the anesthesia two weeks ago. I see the pain management specialist again on Thursday for a followup, so I hope she will have some ideas.

NRR - we have another big hike planned for tomorrow, and it's supposed to snow too! After the hike, we'll go out to dinner. Looking forward to New Year's Eve day.

My place is open if anyone wants a mid-winter meetup in a warm climate...come on...I think Emirates runs a nonstop flight from Seattle now? Just pop over the north pole and you're here in like 17 hours!

 

Seriously though, I am so happy you ladies got to see each other again. So awesome. You are both just the loveliest, and the two of you in a room must be loveliness overload for real. luxlove.gif

 

JayGee, clean, purge, and join me for the big January W30! Still with the numbness? I would be beyond frustrated at this point. You are handling the challenge with grace.

 

Geo, the end of your IL visit did make me giggle. I hope all is well that ends well.

 

And Real, there just aren't words. Bless you, mama. With patience. Which we already know must be true. Really though, my 2013 wish for you is some delicious, deep, rejuvenating sleep. On a regular basis.

 

This W30 psychology is just beyond me. I false-started for what, months? And then, boom. The day just came when it took, and I'm in. Turkish delights be damned. Cupboard full of chocolates can suck it. If dh wants to take us out for weekend lunch, it better be the awesome Lebanese place that gives us a huge plate of arugula and veggies and baba ghanoush before the mixed grill comes out. Or the churrascaria place, if he wants to be fancy. winky.gif Sugar can kiss my ass. I want my energy back. I'd been cutting myself way too much slack and pretending "good" sugar (like piles of dates and oranges, and I mean piles) would have no negative effects on me. I'm remembering how hard and at the same time simple it is to just stay away from it for a while and recalibrate again. I can do this.

 

RR: I have been really, really happily getting out for walks, rides and workouts at the gym. I am, however, feeling so pent-up and trapped with the kids in the apartment that I can't bring myself to roll out the mat in my bedroom. I do yoga when I go to the gym, but my body wants more. So I do need to find a way to get over that. Not sure what the answer should be. Not there yet.

 

NRR: Lofty, my highest recommendation to The 90-Day Novel by Al Watts. It could just be that I am finally in the right head space, or it could be that this is the right message at the right time. But for the first time, I don't care whether I'm writing well or poorly, as long as I am writing. Just sayin'. blowkiss.gif

I love the pictures, lofty and plady! love.gif


I weighed myself this morning for our biggest loser contest, and if my mom's scale is to be believed (and is accurate), I'm actually down a pound from last week. Which just proves to me that weight loss is, for me at least, far more about what I eat (or don't) and less about my exercise. Since I haven't worked out in two weeks now bag.gif. My eating hasn't been fabulous while I've been here, but it's been alright. With a huge assist from invisalign, but I think I've finally realized that I don't *have* to finish everything in front of me. It's ok to leave things on the plate, especially if they don't taste that great anyway. This has been a hard realization for my midwestern-raised-not-to-waste-anything self.

So, as this year ends and the new year begins, I am purposely not making any big goals. I would like to figure out how to work full-time and still maintain a training schedule, but beyond that...I just want to try to manage my life without letting too many things fall by the wayside. If I decide to run NYC, I would like to be able to do a better job of training for it than I did this year. That's about it, really.

I'm running a midnight (actually 11:45) 5k tonight, which should be interesting. I'm trying to decide whether to go to dinner and a movie with my sister, BIL, and their friends beforehand. They're going to a 6:40 show and dinner at 10...which is cutting it a bit close to get to the race, even if eating a full meal that close to a race isn't a bad idea. Hmm...

Jo - your post resonated with me in a huge way. First, I am having a sugar-be-damned day after returning from a week w/ the in-laws where all my sugar crutches (aka choc-chip muffins: "super healthy": garbanzo-bean and sprouted brown rice flours, ground flax, extra dark choc. chips, no sugar except for the chips) were gone. I eat 2 muffins fro breakfast every day. I think I crave the sugar/caffeine high, and the "dessert in the morning" thing really eliminates the craving for sweets for the rest of the day. BUT, after a week off and then the past two days back on, I feel how bad they make me feel. The sugar crash is ugly, and even the sugar high is a little ugly too. So I'm feeling the whole health-sugar-is-still-sugar thing.

Then there's the generally good head-space you seem to be in and it reminds me of your medications. I dont mean that your mood is all medication related, obviously you have had huge life changes for the better this year, but it gives me pause, especially, as you know, I have been mulling the possible role of some medications for my various problems. Which reminds me, I need to make some phone calls today.

I know this is only month two but I think I may very well be seeing some perimenopausal symptoms, and its sad in several ways.

Anyway, the New Year is just in time

Plady and Lofty - So dang cute! And I love that I was just in that room 4 months ago luxlove.gif

Happy New Year to everyone blowkiss.gif Treasure-mapping is around the corner. I can use it!

I love the pictures Lofty and Plady! <3 It sounds like you are having a fab time.  How long will you be there, Dana?

 

Happy New Year, Dingos! :D

 

Sparkle ~ I am awaiting Treasure Mapping with much excitement this year!  I have a 2013 workbook I am using right now to plan and goal set for the time being.  Nothing is as fun as Treasure Mapping though.

 

Gaye ~ Good luck at your midnight 5K.  That's a great way to ring in the New Year!

 

I haven't been on the forums since Christmas, and I just wanted to let you all know how exciting of a Christmas morning we had!!!  Tripod came home after breakfast and gift opening.  He was gone 8.5 days, and he was found within a mile of our house on the road walking toward our house.  Our neighbor picked him up and brought him back.  I'm still amazed!!! =)

Wonderful news as I ring in the year, Jennie. Welcome home, sweet Tripod (whom btw my kids totally lurved). So very happy for your family!

 

Sparkle, I'm all but off the SSRIs. Taking half a pill when I remember (like every 3rd day?) now. So far so good. I'll happily provide any info I can offer. Listened to To The Best of Our Knowledge this past week and one episode in particular had me thinking of you. Probably a convo not for a public board though.

JenLove, I'm so happy to hear that tripod is back.

Good luck tonight tjsmama. Have a great race!

Jo, recalibration seems like the perfect word for your diet.

Night shift again tonight. I'm headed in on not-quite-enough sleep, since a three year old snuck in to bed with me around two this afternoon and started smothering with kisses. I work too much this week and couldn't really resist getting up to play.

What's the date for treasure mapping?

Hi Dingos!

Alas I've already said goodbye to Lofty and fam in the wee hours this morning.  It was so so nice to have them here and felt so normal.  I can't believe it had been 5 years either, the last time we saw each other was in San Miguel right before Alison was born!  Crazy.  And she's just as beautiful and awesome as always.  And her boys are big and sweet and really good guys.  It was fun to see the kids all immediately fall into playing together.  Alison asked if she could keep the boys to be her brothers.  So we'll just have to make another meetup happen sooner rather than later.  And Lofty and I started daydreaming about a Dingo-only meet-up somewhere sometime.  It should really happen.

 

Jennie - So glad Tripod came home!

 

MelW - Hope your night shift is quiet!

 

More personals next year mamas!  Have a happy night!

Great photos! I cannot wait for my turn. joy.gif

welcomeback.gif to Tripod!

I am still mulling over our Christmas. Pleasant enough and probably an appropriate holiday to 2012. Dh and I went to dinner last night just the two of us. We got seated right away and I felt a wave of something wash over me. For 8 days I was feeding, driving, washing, seating, etc. a party of 10 and like someone (Lofty?) said up thread I almost ran out of patience for it all. Almost.

Shanti, I am knitting a scarf I think you pinned. I like it even more than I expected -just a bit lace-like but a not very complicated 4 row repeat. It was a very slow start for me as I got comfortable with it but I hope I am on a roll now.

Happy New year to all! It is still early here and I hope to be sound asleep at midnight.

RR: Here, where it is sunny and warn all the time, I put in 4 miles late afternoon when it was about 50F and it hailed in my face for about a mile. It made the rain for the next couple of miles seem not so bad which made the shower that followed even better.

You don’t owe them an explanation, just a response.

Jennie - joy.gif for Tripod's return

MelW - one more night! I hope you can catch up on sleep. You are a good mama to sacrifice it for some cuddling orngbiggrin.gif

Jo - what about bcp's? are they in the picture anymore. i think that's the root of my ills. I did take an ssri for part of the pms phase (I'm just trying to throw in acronyms at this point lol.gif) and that seems to help. Maybe I'll just stay on it and see how that affects the overall system. There's more, but alas I fear it's only interesting to me lol.gif

Happy 2013!!!

Jennie - I am so glad to hear that Tripod came home. I bet he was hungry!!

Plady and Lofty - your meetup looks like it was great! I love the idea of a Dingos only meetup too.

mommajb - running in hail? Yuck.

MelW - I don't think I'd have been able to say no to those kisses either smile.gif

Jooj - recalibrating my diet here too. No sugar or wheat for the last 4 days, and today begins a true Whole30. Eggs, veggies and black coffee were a perfect start to the day, month and year.

RR - hiked 4 miles in the snow with the family yesterday

NRR - I conked out in front of the fireplace at 10:30 last night, but DH and the children woke me up in time to see the year turn. I just can't stay up late anymore. My children, even the 6 yo, made it just fine though.... We spent most of last night purging cabinets and drawers. DH had all the kids going through the millions of marker and pens we own to test every one. We must have thrown away 200 pens. And then we sharpened all the pencils. And organized the junk drawer. We sure know how to have fun, don't we! Our hike yesterday was wonderful. A light snow fell the entire time and the woods is an entirely different place in the snow. We had planned on the entire 5.3 mile loop, but by the time we hit the 2 mile mark, the girls were exhausted and wet, so we turned around and walked back to the trailhead for a total of 4 miles. I could have stayed out all day myself. We had planned to go to a really cool restaurant that serves all local foods, but they had no reservations left, so we ended up at the Olive Garden. Not my favorite, but the kids like it there and there wasn't a line. I did manage to find a menu item without pasta at least.

Happy New Year to everyone!!!! May 2013 be filled with happiness, joy, running, and maybe a Dingo meetup!
