Sunday nights I always get in a blah mood. I think I really enjoy the weekends, sleeping in and not running around like a maniac and getting nothing exciting done like the weekdays where it is just lesson plans and working out. I always find myself partially sad as the day goes on on Sundays. Also I keep reading these childbirth books, mostly to educate myself and it is freaking me out. I don’t think that I can read them anymore. I just want a baby to hold, take care of, play with, and mold! I don’t want to go through the next 2 months!!
Bill had a big test all day on Saturday. He gets results the end of Jan, hopefully good, but the passing rate is very low, so we’ll see! He’s been studying really hard so I hope it goes well. While he was gone, I got out all the christmas decor, made some cookie dough to be rolled out, cleaned the house, and picked up all the modeling clay in the tri county area (driving store to store to get this stuff!) for a geometry project my kids are working on this week. I also did some running and went to the brand new Y where my parents belong and got to swim! Beautiful pool! I want to go back there to swim. It was great! I fit in food shopping, addressed christmas cards and was P-O-O-P-E-D. Today slept in and vegged out. Never left the house today. I was thinking I didn’t feel like running but when I started, I was hooked. My mom came over to help put up the border in the baby’s room and it looks nice!I really like the theme.
Winnie the Pooh!! My mom is really creative with this stuff.

I ended up getting back on the treadmill after an afternoon session this evening to get to my 30 miles for the week. Earlier in the day I was ok with not getting there, but later on I was in my blah mood and needed to find something to do to get my mind off it, and what else to help but to run! Running this weekend has been good! I’m looking forward to the BOOTIE BUSTER CHALLENGE for extra motivation that doesn’t have to do with weight loss.
Congrats to FL, Aron and Julianne for their hard work and PRs at their marathons this weekend! I was so anxious to hear how they all did and each one of them did fantastic!!! Way to go LADIES!
