I know I promised you a post on my homeschooling but...well you're just going to have to wait because today is NOT the day. I never know exactly what I'm going to write about but I generally have a feeling. I'm not getting the homeschooling feeling today. I mean it is Saturday and I have been on facebook so perhaps I can be forgiven for this lack of motivation.
I should also explain that after all the whining about my birthday and and all the "moan...sob...it's going to suck so much etc etc..."
I haven't even had my birthday yet. All my pissiness (is this a word?) comes about before the day. It's all about the anticipation of the suckitude for me. Don't I sound like a good time?! Yup. I am. Party in a bag. Anywho, the offical day is Monday and it's looking good actually. On Thursday, I got roses from my bible study ladies AND a cake. A cake and presents and I'm totally happy. Very easily bought am I. I'm always awed by the fact that hubby has yet to figure this out but I digress....
I'm going out for lunch on Sunday with my sil and mil which may or may not also include a walk or shopping but will most certainly include eating - yum! AND I get to go out for dinner with hubby on THE DAY. I do love him despite to serious lack of flowers and I love spending time with him. He's still my best friend which is crazy to think after 14 plus years of marriage. There will be no Mexico or diamonds but I am reminded every day of how loved I am. See how I'm growing up?! ha
Oh and I'm happy to be training again! We run half marathon number two on February 15th. I'm a teeny bit freaked out about it actually. This one is supposed to be hillier ... yikes. I just finished week one of training and it's been pretty good. I'm only running three days a week right now but I'm also going to bootcamp 3 days a week so hopefully it's enough to get me to the goal feeling strong. It's much more fun to run these things if your all trained up and ready to go. This whole running/training thing has been an improtant life lesson for me actually. I'm sure God is using it to show me that it's not actually about the race, it's about the process getting to the goal. I'm such a procrastinator in so many areas of my life but somehow I'm usually able to pull it out and get it done. I'm a mess and I don't enjoy whatever I've been asked to do but I get it done.
There's no way to shortcut the training for a run process. I just can't do it if I don't do the prep work. So many applications to my regular life.....
And the kid's bedroom addition is finally taking shape. I'll get out there and take some pictures if the giant tarp is down. The giant green tarp is such a classy addition to our home;-)
Can't wait to see it finished. Closets - yay! and a girl's bathroom, double yay!
