Take rest

Notice the book on the chair arm where I spent mornings reading?

Hi everyone…I missed you!

Here's where I traveled.

There were days when I almost caved and posted to the blog, even though I was aware that I needed to take a complete break. Testament to how much I love writing this blog, I suppose.

Happy face

But I’m now back and fully rested and ready to prepare for the next season. My kids are still with their grandparents, so I have a big list of things that don’t usually even make it to the to do list that I am hoping to tackle while they are not underfoot. Plus, a few fun social get togethers for a freewheelin’ couple unencumbered by kids. I’m increasing the intensity of my training for the September 11th 5K and I’m taking a girls weekend road trip to Omaha with Deirdre and Colleen to see Janna.

Lots to fit in before the end of the month, but all very good stuff for a lucky girl with a rich life.

So far, I am still in my pajamas on the couch. Hmmm. Guess I better get started.

p.s. The winner of the drawing for a copy of Love in the Time of Cholera is Gail O’Kane. Watch your mailbox for the book and a surprise!
