Well, last week was all about getting a bunch of stuff done: van repaired, post-op dental check-up for Jake, van insurance, organize the house, hair cut, and help Andrew with work. Of course I sprinkled in a little fun here and there because it’s the only way I’d ever survive.
Here’s some proof of my paces for last week’s 10-miler (the first 2 miles were on the treadmill) with a 2-mile tempo:
That was such a great run. I felt like a beast! Although I can’t imagine getting those tempo miles at that pace up to 14-16 consecutive miles after I have the baby. GULP.
There’s always time for a dance party in the kitchen. Always.
Callum is pretty good at sprinkling too, if you can see the front of his pants. He attempted to have a wee into this puddle here during our trail walk. I also love how he tucked his jacket into his undies.
A few weeks ago I told you guys that I tried to take the cat in to get groomed and she freaked out at me and wouldn’t get into her box. Well ever since then I had been worried that her temperament would shift to an angrier sort but although it did shift quite a bit, she actually went the other way! She’s been even more gentle and more patient! No hissing, swiping or growling. She’s always let Callum kiss her, thank goodness.
As much as I don’t like the pressure of Mother’s Day, it’s not all about me. Wait, what? Really? Really. My mom is beautiful, loving, gracious and kind and while I have a tendency to get all moody teenager buzzkill on happy things, she really likes all the girly stuff. I got her the most pink flowery card I could find and took her out for lunch to Denny’s. That’s where she really wanted to go! Then Jake, Freddy and Katie asked to join us at the last minute which of course I’d never turn down, Mother’s Day or not, so we all headed out to Langley to pick up my mom and eat a bunch of food.
Another week in the books! Thank you to Meghan from Clean Eats Fast Feets for hosting this week’s Week in Review. <3
Have you ever had an animal that turned on you?
What did you dream about last night?
