Things are good here. We got another rain storm last night/this morning which resulted in Nicky being up again but only for an hour. And then, THEN, he (and I) slept until 9:30. AMAZING. The big kids got up at 8:30 (super late for James) and watched Scooby Doo until we got up. It was so nice. We decided to skip swimming and are just laying around the living room. I am brewing coffee. Nicky is playing with cars. James and Ruby are still watching Scooby Doo. :) I promise I'm turning it off after my coffee.
We had a good weekend. James was kind of a pill on and off but what can you do? We did have a picnic dinner Friday night, bought school supplies and went out to dinner on Saturday night and I worked a lot on Sunday and took Ruby to get groceries while the boys worked on a "race car."
This picture was taken yesterday before Ruby crashed it but Patrick and James fixed it again last night. I am kind of surprised at how cool it is. The kids love it.
I also kind of freaked out on Sunday. I am starting to really crave some time alone in my house. It seems like all the closets and cupboards are jumbled up and everything just needs some time and attention. I did feel better yesterday and decided to try and clean out one closet or area each week. This week it's the front hall closet. (in case you were wondering.) :)
Yesterday I ran some intervals and it was SO HARD. I feel the need to mix things up a bit and that was a good start.
(Nicky keeps saying, "na na boo boo, got me!" It is so cute.)
Do you know I still can't believe that I go running? Usually the night before I'm going to run or even the morning before I think to myself, "What am I even thinking? I cannot run!" It's kind of funny. I suppose it takes a while to erase years of saying those things to myself and others.
I just ran out of writing steam. I think it might be the coffee scent wafting in my direction.
