It's 10:24 pm and I'm waiting for my duvet cover in the dryer..
Washed our bedsheets because I found Caelan snoozing in my bed while he's got the flu! Eeep.
Tuesday December 13.
I got to see my Ryder :) oh and her mom, Erica :)
Look how adorable she is, not me, the baby you guys! :)
Met Erica and Ryder for breakfast at Snow City.. and let me tell you what..
I parked in 4 different parking meter spots and tossed at least 50 cents in all of them.. and they all came out saying "error" What the heck? So after going around in a circle twice, I finally found one that worked! Goodness gracious, I just wanted to have breakfast with my girl !
Here's our photo of the day.. the first two were from my short arms.. Erica finally ripped the camera out my short arms and took them :)
My son stayed home from school that day (go figure after his one snow day. .he's sick!) and he was not well enough to go to school. So as much as I didn't want to do anything for the rest of the day... I had to.
So I'm not sure if this is the plus side of having a dog.
I'm a stickler about his daily walks... we don't miss one! Not even if it's raining, snowing, or both with ice on the road.. We are well equipped with snow boots or studded shoes and we've got coats.. right? Well today out of all days.. I looked at him and I literally said, "Really, I don't want to do anything.."
But 2 seconds later, I laced up my snow boots and headed outdoors.
And this is our backyard.. it is gorgeous, I admit.
So I've got my dog to Thank.. for never having a lazy day. Well, Sundays are usually my lazy days.. but hubby has dog-duty that day. So off we went.. exploring, playing, and just being out there. It does help.. to get out of the house, to see that bit of light we have left..
My day didn't end there..
I convinced myself to lace up shoes and head out for a run.
The sidewalks were cleared, the ice was hidden beneath some snow, and the sun was still out. No excuses right.. so what if it was only 19 degrees..
And out the door I went.. and I almost did not come back.. Hello six.. it's been a while.
And it really did make me feel so much better. I've been in some deep funk the past two days.. that I knew what I needed to do, but I just could not get there. I always get asked.. what do you think about when your running for an hour? My answer.. everything and anything. It's one of my "rare" quite moments.. and I really enjoy it. It's crazy to think that running outdoors in the snow/ice doing hurdles over mounds of snow to cross the street and not to mention 19 degrees.. but I do "strangely" enjoy the quiet time.
