My Mom went home yesterday, after she was here for over a week. And we were pretty much home bound the whole time, because of the snow and cold. Mom was a big help while she was here, and Eliza was her little shadow. When my Mom says goodbye, she does it way too fast, and I realize now she does it that way so she won't cry.
Anyway, I started the week off with some birthday snowshoeing, I had asked Jeannine if she wanted to go at the nearby nature center, I was in the mood for some cross training. I woke up in a fog, I had a horrible night's sleep, I got maybe 4 hours, and almost canceled when I saw that the outside temp was zero. However, after some coffee, and getting the kids to school, I was ready to rock.
We did 3.2 miles of trails, here is J checking out the valley view:
Trees, trees, trees.
This week really sucked sleep wise. Today I was trying to remember the last time I had one single night of uninterrupted sleep. Luke has been sick all week with some fever that keeps coming and going, so he was up a lot, Eliza had a couple of nightmares, and even Frank was up for two nights in a row. Besides those valid reasons for being awake, I never, ever sleep for a whole night without waking up. Ever. I've been like this since I was a kid, and I'm tired of it. It takes me a while to fall asleep, and once I do, I can't stay asleep. When I was a kid I would sneak into the bathroom to read because I couldn't sleep. I have a hard time napping too, because I start thinking of everything else I could be doing. Oh well. Maybe I'm like Martha Stewart, who claims to only sleep four hours a night. Um.....probably not.
So once again it's Superbowl Weekend. Since the JETS blew it, I'm hoping Green Bay makes it, and to bring them a bit of luck, I hauled out the Cheese Hat.
And........put it on Frank:
which he then took off with:
I've been looking for new music, I have a couple of itunes gift cards to redeem, I'm open to new music suggestions is you have them. But I do have a new favorite running song, for your listening pleasure.
