Thanksgiving babies are so much fun – especially when they’re as amazing as G! He’s the same weight as Madeleine was when she was born – I just don’t remember her that small. So not only did we have a baby to play with, but T lost his first front tooth. The girls made him watch Loose Ends, which they made with a Jon a few years ago, then they bugged him until he pulled the thing out. It was so cute!
We had a great Thanksgiving lunch, with NO political talk with amazing amounts of food – even stuff we didn’t make, even food I left in the oven (sweet potatoes hahaha), plus seven pies, gobs of of cookies and brownies and LOTS of leftovers sent home with Q’s and R&V. It was a bit crazy!
I am SO Thankful to be healthy, living a wonderful life, having two beautiful, smart and talented ladies in my house, and that I’m in a good relationship with my husband. Life is really good! 🙂
After everybody left, Pepper Ann, Mimi, and I took a short, SLOW one-mile sunset walk to burn off the food. I didn’t overeat though, so I wasn’t really worried about calories, but instead interested in getting some fresh air and getting those crazy dogs some exercise. My face froze because it was only about 7 degrees when we walked over the icy trails.
This past Monday I started my Sawtooth Relay training prep via Lisa Keller, so I picked Thursday and Friday as my lazy days: glass fusion classes on Thursdays and Fridays usually involve margaritas, Mexican food and art nights. Thanksgiving worked out perfectly for a lazy day because my legs have been sore from interval and pick-up training … which makes me realize that I’ve been a very lazy runner the last year and I’ve devolved by getting slower every month I run. Ha. That’s not happening now that I have a pretty robust training plan.
My State furlough is over after today … my 15 hours will have been taken. The furlough has really hit our budget.
