Thursday 5

This week is just blowing by me, which is fantastic.  The quicker we get to the weekend, the better in my book.  This week's words are:


1.  I'm feeling pretty fantastic about what I was able to get accomplished the other day at work, during ACT day, no less.  I was finally able to write Natalia a nice, long letter.  I had an envelope ready for her at home, but I just wasn't getting to it at the end of the day.  I was able to write her a long one, on the back of six half sheets of bright pink paper.  Hopefully it's as enjoyable to read as it was to write.  I was also able to plan for the next two weeks of lessons, which is fantastic for me, a person who hates to lesson plan.

2.  I was able to get in a 1.83 mile run today during my game manager duties for soccer.  Interestingly enough, I only burned 24 calories because my heart rate never got above 110!  My pace was barely sub-10, so at least I wasn't over my normal "limit" for myself.  The cool part about my run was that I was joined by a random stray dog for the last half mile!  I don't know where the dog came from, as it had no collar on, but it has obviously been groomed recently.

3.  I think we need a wonderful, affordable knock-off of Kate Middleton's lovely blue engagement dress.  If I could get that one in a darker coral color, I would buy it in a heartbeat!  Sign me up!

4.  I've been trying to make this a special week for DH, with his birthday being tomorrow.  While I didn't make him a big, homemade meal tonight (he had that the last three nights), I did make him a whole batch of oatmeal raisin cookies to scarf down by his lonesome!  They're not my fave, so it's all him, a true treat!  He didn't want a cake, and I finally talked him into letting me make him cookies.

5.  That's about all for tonight.  Who else is ready to get a glimpse of Kate Middleton's beautiful wedding gown?!  BRING IT!

I'm personally glad that the whole wedding fiasco is over... however...

I will say that Kate knows how to dress.

Great post! I those these! Very inspirational. I need to get back into running more! I has been two weeks since I ran last. Due to Vegas and work, I have not had time! I need to make time! I am 36 and not getting any younger!
