This will be a quick one...I'm wiped!
Tubes- D got the tubes in his ears last week. He was a total trooper. Not a tear was shed. Since he had the procedure done at my hospital, the recovery room nurses all commented that they now know what I am like after two glasses of wine. He did great, and was back to school the next day. Here is hoping there are no more ear infections!
Family Movie Night- Thanks to my Dad giving us a larger-than-life television when he moved out of his apartment, we have started a "family movie night" tradition. Once a week, we all pile on the couch and watch a movie (or an episode of Wonder Woman). We have really had a blast with it. We do lots of reading, playing games, etc., but something about showing the kids some of the movies that we liked as kids is a blast. We watched "Ghostbusters" this week. We were reminded how far special effects have come in the years since the movie was made, but we had a great time laughing at the movie. Of course our little one was obsessed with the fact that the Ghostbusters lived in an old firehouse.
Party on- This weekend was the party for my sister and her husband to celebrate their wedding in Philadelphia. It was a great chance to see his hometown and meet friends and family who couldn't make it to the wedding. Of course what are the odds that at a party with 90 guests, someone would be wearing MY dress?!?! I say that jokingly- I could care less and we looked nothing alike, but it was funny. The best part was that it was a Ralph Lauren dress that we both got for super cheap at TJ Maxx.
Training- This cold has been kicking my butt! I feel like crud still, and cough like crazy in the mornings. I haven't been in the pool because I am so congested. I am trying to run (woohoo!) and get time in on the bike, but I'm not feeling the swim just yet. I'm hoping for this week! The one thing I have been focusing on is a lot of strengthening, and core work...trying to get stronger for 2011.
Supper club- I have been inspired by my teammate Jessi to start a supper club with some of my working Mom friends. We are still figuring out the details, but I spent most of today cooking. I made stuffed shells, my enchilada bake, and mac and cheese. (Not all super healthy meals, but mac and cheese was chosen for being kid-friendly).
Team Trakkers- It is great to get to know the new round of teammates. There is a lot of enthusiasm, and I am really looking forward to the races this year. I am hoping to volunteer at the Rev3 race in Knoxville and be ready to race by Quassy.
