my title is what it is cause that is what spark told me to do when i left it blank.
so i just wanted to let you all know my nephew is home from the hospital and is doing great. i can't wait to go visit them next month and get a bit of a baby snuggle. here is a picture that my sister has taken of 3 of my nephews (2 oldest and the newest).
my sis is a professional photographer so she gets some amazing pictures. you can check out her website at www.luvuphotography.com/ if you wish.
on to me....
still not feeling 100%. i am in that circle of if i rest i am ancy and feel i have too much energy but if i do a work out i need a nap. i am still so congested and cough all night so getting little sleep is probably the biggest issue with getting rid of this darn cough.
last week though i did manage 8 miles, do a cardio mix at the gym (bike/elliptical/stepper) and 1 strength workout so not so bad. i am going to attempt a 6 mile run on tuesday this week. i planned on a 4 mile run this morning with the pup but it was raining very hard when i went to leave so i decided to go to the gym to do strength and a 2.25 mile run. tomorrow i am planning on a kick butt spin class.
i had a great dinner with a good friend on friday. we agreed we need to do it more often. my friend, who is not a great kid lover, has totally come around and wants ONE kid. i never thought this day would happen. felt good to have some one who only wants ONE kid or understands why I only have ONE. to those of you with more than one i don't know how you do it mentally, physically and financially. i find it hard to even balance my needs with dh and ds. the more i think about it i don't want another. i just feel i should cause everyone on earth seems to have more than one.
especially now that ds is pressing to play hockey and it is ridiculously expensive. seriously, i know dance, karate and other things are pretty steep too for other parents. we were hoping to avoid hockey with ds but that is all he talks about and wants to play so bad next year. he starts skating lessons this week. hoping he falls on his butt and never wants to see ice again lol! i am not a huge hockey person and although dh likes watching has never played so we wanted to avoid it. then dumba$$... i mean dh starts taking hayds to games and watching with him constantly so it is his fault. the other night we were out to dinner. the restaurant had tv's. dh and ds were sitting on one side of the booth watching "the game" while i sat on the other staring into space. i told dh that i guess there is no reason for me to come along anymore lol.
