12 June, 2013 Oh happy day, it’s nine o’clock all the boys are asleep and I am tucked in my bed working on the blog. Oh I’m happy. This has to be one of my favorite feelings. Toady I had that strong feeling that we’re going to be okay, I’m sure you can relate, some days you just stress and other times you just know it will be okay. Figuring out how to get through this summer hasn’t been easy. I have been running more and I’m finally genuinely excited to run more. I’m finally back there, back to when you go out on a run it’s fun, and it feels good to breathe hard. I don’t know why it took me so long this last time around to really enjoy it. It was just hard to get consistent enough.
It was this cute girls birthday on Sunday! The McDonalds were nice enough to spend their Sunday evening with us, they are moving to Montana at the end of the month. Travis just finished his residency and is doing one more year of specializing. It was great to be able to hang out with them a little more. Finn especially loves Jessica. He cracks me up, he loves the ladies. We ate food, flew the air hog, chatted as much as we could with three babies around!
My friend Jessica is a professional photographer, she’s quite talented and somehow has escaped giving me pointers! Finn is a ham, despite the intimidating company I was pulling out the camera. I can’t resist. It’s usually close.
The boys haven’t been getting naps the last few days, oh man lots of this going around after four o’clock. Silliness!
We’re doing great here. Ryan is next to me working on his MPRE questions, after this I’ll be looking at my new Women’s Health app on the iPad (magazines really ARE fun on the iPad, this is a first for me!) or finishing ‘The God Who Weeps’. I have a long list of books I want to read this summer so I have to start cranking. I want to read the Power of Habit next, and I’ve got an awesome book to read for a book club – Enchanted April in a few weeks. I figure if I can go on some runs, read some fun books, and do a picnic at the beach on Sunday with friends it’s pretty hard to beat that. Looked at just two or three old blog posts from two years ago, great reminder that amongst all our therapy for Jude I need to just play with him for the sake of playing without any therapeutic exercise in mind. Childhood…. find some more fun Hb!
