Oh boy, today is going to be a long one.
The alarm is set for 7:15am but Tate was up at 6:30 “too excited to sleep, it’s like Christmas morning”. And he wanted to talk about truck packing strategies at that hour. Just. A. Few. More. Minutes. Sleep. I certainly appreciate his enthusiasm though ;).
And now I am up, slurping coffee from my new china
My two sisters, niece, and I hit the thrift stores yesterday and I walked away with a set of 4 of this china (much prettier in real life than this poor picture!) and 2 dresses for a whopping $3.90 total. West Virginia is cheap, I will give it that.
I almost took yesterday as a rest day but at the last minute (actually 6:50pm) my brother and I jogged up to the track and did a fast and furious 25 minute workout. 10 minute warm-up, 10 minutes of sprints, 5 minute cool-down and home just as the enchiladas were coming out of the oven :). Ben is really fast but he doesn’t have great endurance so we compliment each other well (he’s a quintessential 18 year old boy, runs hard and fast until he can’t anymore! Pacing oneself comes a bit later in life…).
My 4 runs this week were “supposed” to be at least 35 minutes so I am not sure whether this one will count towards the 4 or not.
Today is a rest day. Well, sort of. We will be in the truck for close to 7 hours total but there will also be brief spurts of heavy lifting, 2 couches, 2 beds, a dresser,etc. loaded and unloaded. Humm, maybe it’s a two cup morning!
Gotta go buy a house!
