I know, it’s Tuesday. But it was such a fun weekend! On Saturday, we had Run Club (this is not an official thing really . . but I call it that) dinner (w kids). It was so much fun and it always cracks me up how different my running friends look in actual clothing. We all clean up nicely 🙂
Then on Sunday — upon request — I took A and G to get their ears pierced. We kept things easy and went to Claire’s about 15 minutes away (one of the few locations not in a mall) and A left with sparkly pink earrings. She initially had her ears pierced at age 4, but years ago they got irritated and eventually closed up. She may have inherited my metal sensitivity – I only wear titanium based earrings now and have no issues!
G left with . . . clip ons. It was bittersweet, she was all excited but then after watching A (who was entirely stoic and barely flinched!) was like “NO WAY” and then started crying because she wanted to have pierced ears but could not bring herself to get up in the chair. I could see her doing battle with herself and told her not to worry because we can just go back another time when she feels ready.
Then it was time for the Super Bowl – I made our traditional Cincinnati Chili and a bunch of snacks and we all watched the first half and the halftime show. We actually got a new TV (sort of) for the occasion – our old one was small, >12 years old and had some persistent lines on it . . . it was time. I am pretty amazed at how vivid the images are on this thing. I guess TVs have come a long way since ~2010 . . .
As I write this, it is Monday.
I kind of . . . love Mondays. The whole fresh start to the week thing always makes me happy and just excited to dive in. Plus there’s usually a group run to start the day (fun). Let’s hope I can keep this energy up past Tuesday. Last couple of weeks were sort of rough but I feel like I’m fully back in action. Although I am not terribly excited for my taper this week. (BUT, at least the taper didn’t coincide with PMS!)
One additional note:
Allison from PrepDish had me on her podcast!! It was a fun interview (all about things planning + planning-adjacent!).
