1. this week in reading
You guys, if you haven’t read an Amy Harmon book, you’re really missing out. Her writing is so beautiful. This book – I just loved it SO MUCH. I seriously didn’t want it to end.
Now I’m in a book funk and have NO clue what to read next.
2. New Books I’m excited about
Since We Fell is my first Lehane book, and my first Book of the Month! Pretty excited to read it. I needed more Kristan Higgins in my life, and I pre-ordered A Million Junes.
3. fun thing(s) from the week
Last weekend I ran my first 5k race since October. I had a pretty good time, good enough to score the third place medal for my age group. I had to bump up an age group this year…blah. Lol. It was perfect running weather, and I was really happy with how I did. I run 5k’s almost every day that I run, but when it’s an actual race I push myself harder. I was just glad I didn’t cause any more strain to my hamstring and that I had a decent time.
After the race I had to book it to the school carnival, where I was signed up to help all afternoon. It was our first carnival, and it seemed to be successful. At least Sunnie had a great time.
The weather in Ohio was gorgeous this week. Went from freezing to hotter than Hades overnight. I tried to get outside a few days and enjoy the sunshine. And I don’t really like having to turn on my AC in May, but it was so hot that I wouldn’t have been able to sleep. And mama needs her sleep.
4. Fit Readers/Life
Sunnie got sick yet again. Ugh. My hubby had strep (second time in 2 months) and was on antibiotics. I managed to avoid it (knock on wood), but Sunnie ended up with a sinus infection. After a week of her being miserable and nothing we did was working for her, the doctor put her on a z-pack. THANK GOD school is almost over!! We need a break from the germ fest.
A few nights of her coughing and sleeping with me meant no running the next morning. I was just too tired. But I did manage to get to the park three days this week for my run. Running outside is always a treat for me. Especially when the weather is perfect for it.
And because fighting illness wasn’t enough, we had to get a new washing machine this week, and call a plumber for issues we were having with our bathroom drains. Adulting ain’t easy or good for my bank account.
5. looking ahead
Today I’m working from home and have managed to fit in some cleaning and laundry. My parents have asked to have Sunnie for a sleepover tonight – they aren’t seeing her as much as before, now that I’m part time. And because she’s their only grandchild and Sunnie loves staying there, I can’t say no. My hubby is hoping to get home from work a little earlier so he can take me out on the boat tonight. Date night on the lake is my favorite!
Tomorrow morning Sunnie has dance competition tryouts (at 9:00…what is this madness). Then we’re meeting one of my girlfriends for lunch (Mexican…margaritas, yes?!) My hubby has a fishing tournament on Sunday, and the weather isn’t looking all that great (rain/storms). Sunnie and I will just be relaxing and taking it easy. On Monday her class is going to the Akron Zoo, and I signed up as a chaperon. We haven’t been to this zoo, and she is excited to go. I could care less about zoos (sorry…just not my thing), but when my child asks me to come I’m not going to let her down. 😉
Have a great weekend!
