the one where I blab and blab

Sixteen years ago today my husband picked me up for our first date. He drove 45 minutes to my parents house where I was home for Christmas break. We went to Hanes Mall and we ate dinner at Annabelle's (of course, no longer there). Then we went to see Scream 2. It seems like an eternity ago.  The funniest part is that my sister and two of her friends went with us to dinner.

One more day of work and then we get a two week break.  Teachers and students are beyond ready. After a full moon this week, two field trips, a science fair, and multiple disciplinary incidents Friday can't come fast enough.

I've really slacked off on reading this year. I just haven't made the extra time for it.  This month alone we've been battling some sickness and the general busyness of the holidays and I have been working on the same library book for a month. Last month I read one of the best books I've read all year:

Joshua has started taking gymnastics. He happens to be the only boy in a class full of 3 year old preschoolers but it's the only class that would work with our schedule and he's getting a lot out of it. Not only is he burning off some extra energy, he's being reminded how to line up, take turns, sit Criss Cross Applesauce, and listen to instructions, all of which he needs extra practice on.

Since Mistletoe is over, I took a week off and started training for a full marathon this week.  The miles haven't been bad yet but I know the challenge is going to be the time commitment. I've had a really hard time already squeezing in six mile runs during the week when we've got a sick kid and lots of Christmas events to go to in the evenings.  In two weeks I run the Salem Lake 25k though and I'm already registered so I've got to get 'em in somehow!

OK friends, I've got to get something done. It's been nice sharing coffee with you this morning. ;o) Have a great day!

I love Jodi Picoult. If I ever make time for reading again, I want to read that one.
