We’ve had an interesting week. It started with me in Raleigh for a couple of days for work, and tomorrow we’ll be in Charlotte. My son will be spending a couple of days with my in-laws (his first time away from my husband and I for this amount of time – since we left him with my mom for a weekend at 11 months old.) I have plans to work on his room while he isn’t around, and to get some items set for consignment.
Truth be told, I’ll probably get sucked into reading books on my Kindle, and next weekend I will be frantically pulling consignment items together. I mean, let’s be real.
For now, I want to share a five on Friday post – when I really have 90 minutes left to this Friday. But first, a selfie:
I love a good Snapchat filter.
One. I’ve been to Raleigh numerous times, but I don’t know I’ve ever been in the heart of downtown or visited the capitol building. I went running on Tuesday morning and it was pretty cool. We were just two blocks from the capitol, and I wish I’d had some more time to explore.
Two. I’m definitely a workaholic. Despite not having anyone other than myself to be responsible for, I found myself working until almost midnight the two nights I was out of town. I could have spent that time sleeping, but nope. Working. And I didn’t stop when I got home. Well, Tuesday night I went to bed around 11:15, so I guess that was earlier.
Three. We went to Target late this afternoon, and we were checking out at 5pm. Rather than drive across Asheville (because our traffic is brutal during that rush hour time), we went to Chuck E. Cheese’s. That’s right, friends. I would rather pay $35 for pizza, drinks and games than drive across Asheville at 5pm. The kids had a blast, so I don’t regret it.
Four. I’ve been running every day for a few weeks. I gave myself a goal of getting 10,000 steps a day (I’m obsessed with my Fitbit.) Running helps me reach that goal, whether I run one mile or five. I’m signed up for a half marathon in September, so I’m hoping I can stick with it. I’ll keep you posted if I find myself continuing this self-imposed #runstreak.
Five. It takes a village to raise a family, y’all. My husband is part of an institute for two weeks, and his schedule is wild. Sometimes leaving before 7:30am, and other days not getting home until 9 or 10:00 at night. This was the first year we haven’t had childcare for our son – full-time or part-time. So last week we had my dad and stepmom come to town to help out (because our schedules overlapped and we needed care overnight.) Then my mom kept our son for three days. He’ll go to my in-laws tomorrow for a few days and they’ll bring him home by mid-week. I know he’s having a blast, and I’m grateful I can still work. And the next few days will be good so I can focus on the house and work. Oh and our daughter. 😉 Actually, I’m sure my kids are going to miss each other like mad.
Now…tell me something good, because it’s been a wild week, and I need more positive news.
