Kelsey was supposed to come and babysit today instead of tomorrow as that is the 4th but now she can't, due to the poops. Patrick and I had BIG PLANS to go to Sonic for dinner. We never go to Sonic and Patrick has been thinking about their chili cheese frito dogs for a while. :) Darn it. Maybe next week. My friend Kelly was also supposed to come thrifting with me (Kelsey was going to watch her 2 kids for a while, too) so all this fun will have to wait. Something to look forward too, right?
I ran 25 minutes yesterday and then again this morning. Next week we move to 28 minutes and then 30 minutes the following week and then it's done! I will be able to run 30 minutes which won't be a whole 5K for me, but a good chunk of one. I was dreading the first 25 minute run yesterday. I didn't even believe I was going to do it until I actually started running...just couldn't commit to it in the crazy humidity. But once I got going it was, well, pretty miserable. ha! But I finished and then this morning did it again with Kelly there, which was fun. I will be kind of sad when this program is over but am still not sure I want to push myself farther. Will I enjoy running just to run? I don't know. I do love how it makes me feel, though. It's pretty cool to have something that you just do not do, have never done, and then all of a sudden (okay, very slowly) you're doing it. The only thing that is making me go in this weather is the thought of how good it will feel when it cools off again. Like heaven!! Speaking of heaven. I am so thankful for my healthy body. So thankful. What a gift. Thank you, Lord.
I can't sign off without a Nicky update. He is so cute. Have I said that before? ha. He just says everything. He answers "okay" when you ask him to do something or "no way!" He repeats the alphabet after me and loves to dance. He is a little muckball at bedtime and loves to press his nose into my bare arm and take a big sniff. He and Ruby (he calls her "erbu") have a special relationship and the three of them actually played together a lot over the weekend in a restaurant/ship they made downstairs. I'm so glad we have them.
That reminds me of my seester and her kids. She is so blessed. She has so much ahead of her...how perfect is a new baby?! I am kind of jealous but it's easier because I know she will be here in the fall and she will let me borrow both of them whenever I want. :)
