I have been pretty lazy with this blogging thing as of late. Not going to apologize or anything because this is my blog and I can do what I want, but I’ve just kind of been in a funk and thought you should know. Does that ever happen to you? Like, I just want to sit on the couch and veg out. Anyway, I’m hoping this warmer weather is here to stay and will inspire me to get out and do things so I’ll have more content for you!
Just in case any of you fine folks missed it, Mother’s Day was this past Sunday, and our little family ventured back to Montgomery for the weekend to see our moms (and grandmoms).
While we were in town, my parents and I ran the AGAPE Run for a Mom 5K and Fun Run on Saturday morning. I did absolutely no training for this one (it was, after all, only two weeks after my previous 5K), and it really showed in my finishing time. I finished in 35:17 which was ok, but it was about 30 seconds slower than 2 weeks ago. Not a personal best. I did end up 16th out of 33 in my age group, and I’m honestly just glad I finished.
5Ks are hard, y’all. I think I’ll be putting off that 1/2 marathon thing for a little while.
We also celebrated my birthday Saturday night by going out with everyone to my favorite Japanese Steakhouse, Kabuki. If you are in Montgomery, I would highly recommend this restaurant. Great food and reasonable prices.
Mother’s Day Sunday was spent relaxing and enjoying time with family. My aunt and uncle were in town visiting my mom’s mom (my grandmother, but she’s Bebe to me and my kids), and I was really glad we were able to visit with them for the weekend.
Mother’s Day always seems to fall within a few days of, or sometimes on, my birthday, but I don’t really mind because it means I get to celebrate things all week (and who doesn’t love to celebrate for a week?)! And since I know it might have slipped your mind, my birthday is, in fact, on Thursday. I will be accepting gifts all week, so don’t worry if you’re a little behind. Hope you had a great Mother’s Day and are having a fantastic week!May 3, 2013
If you are a true southerner, you know many of the south’s unique “rites of passage” that we all go through at least once in our lives.
Your first SEC football game. Eating grandmama’s grits. Drinking from the water hose. Picking pecans from grandaddy’s tree and eating them on the porch as you shell them. The list could go on, but you get my point.
There are things we southerners do that are uniquely, well, us. One of those things that I have always been fond of was running through the sprinkler on a hot summer day.
Granted, these last few days here have not been hot, nor have they been anywhere close to summer (where are you 80+ degrees?? come back!!!), but when you have 2 little monkeys who want to be outside all the time, well, you have to think of something to do. We have already dipped ourselves in the kiddie pool this season, but even after I let the water sit out to “warm” during their nap one day, it was still not much warmer than about 60 degrees. Too cold, in my humble estimation.
So, I looked to the sprinkler to solve my problem. Both girls seemed to enjoy sticking their hands and fingers in it, but, alas, no “running through” it just yet. I’m sure with time they will figure it out. For now, I’m just happy that they were entertained for the afternoon.← Older posts |
