Snippets

Hey, y'all.  Hope you've had a good week.  It's been a minute since I popped in.  I've been uploading pics and/or typing up posts for the last few days, but could never finish and publish. I have three posts I've been trying to get up this week, and guess what.  They're all going up today (posted below). I live on the wild side.

So what have y'all been up to?  Me?  Well, it's been one of those weeks where I can't sit still long enough to form a complete thought.  Which is the reason today's post is given to you in snippets:
  • I'm so glad the month of May is finally starting to look like the month of May.  The 50-degree temps earlier this week were just weird. 
  • Warmer temps means pretty dresses and outfits for the little one.  I've said it many times how I LOVE dresses on little girls, and that's hard to do in the winter.  M picked this one out yesterday morning -- I love it, too.  It's a cute little thrift store find of my mom's last year.
  • I've been slacking on my running because of how crazy the last month has been. I haven't had a solid run schedule since before spring break (March!). Instead of running 3-4 days a week, three miles a time, I've skipped days and shortened runs. And boy, I can tell the difference in my body. I've packed on a few pounds, and my runs have been harder in general.  Yuck.  Yesterday I pushed myself to do an entire 5K because guess what?  I HAVE an official 5K event this weekend.  And I'm rusty.  Taking a month off (basically) has done my body no good.  Thankfully yesterday's run gave me a little bit of confidence.  I can still do it, but I'll probably pass out at the finish line.
  • This pic is from earlier this week as Babycakes and I waited on her swim lessons to start.  I had no idea at the time of this picture that this swim session would be our worst yet. She all of a sudden decided she was afraid (?), and refused to get in the water. Imagine the drama. Thankfully between the teacher and me (and promises of fruit snacks when we got home), she got in the pool the last 10 minutes of the lesson. She did much better the next lesson, and is already excited about continuing next week. 
  • I got the pretty-much-official word that the summer school class I teach isn't going to make. *sigh* I'm not sure what I'm going to do with myself this summer.  I seriously considered finding a regular job to keep myself busy, but I doubt I find something that will only let me work part-time -- particularly 8:00 to 1:00, Monday - Friday. I have no desire to work full-time, evenings, or weekends during my summers, so I'll have to find other ways to keep myself busy.
  • M will still be going to preschool this summer (it's more like a camp in the summer versus preschool).  While I could keep her out this summer, we run the risk of losing her spot in the fall.  We just can't let that happen. (We recently learned that once again, her preschool has won Best Preschool in our metropolitan area.  The waiting list is insane. Just can't risk it.)  I'll probably only take her a few days a week, though, and only for a few hours. Mama's summer vacation = baby's summer vacation, too.
Don't forget to check out my long overdue posts below. Also, I'll be sure to let y'all know how my run goes this weekend - ha.  Last but not least, Happy Mothers Day to the mamas (and like-a-mamas) out there. 

Love,
G
