...and then there was one...and some other random musings!

On Sunday morning Molly boarded a plane with my mom and step-dad.  She is flying back to their home in Rochester, NY.  She will be gone all week, until my mom and Phil fly back with her on Saturday.  I am missing her, but I also know she is having a great time and getting spoiled rotten.  I am very thankful for Face Time so we can chat each day and I can see what a fabulous time she is having.  And now acting like we only have one child, well, it's been nice.  Lucy gets a ton of attention and she loves that.  It's easier when trying to get around and nap time, ahhh peace!  But Lucy I think is making up for Molly's presence, she goes around yelling and running.  So although it sounds like we still have 2 kids under one roof, it's just one! 


Here is what else we have been up to...

I went strawberry picking for the very first time in my life.  It was a blast!  We had to dig and search and pick some more, but I ended up with over 9 lbs of berries.  I have no idea what I am going to do with all of them, but I am sure Pinterest can help me out!  I went with a really good friend of mine, so it was fun to chat and compare red hands, and by the end we both had hives on our arms from the leaves of the plants.  Good times! 

I ran today for the first time in over 2 weeks.  I was going to run yesterday but my legs were so sore from berry picking on Sunday, I seriously hurt!  So this morning the old alarm went off at 5am and up I went.  Okay, up I went around 5:15am when I realized that that was my alarm still playing music, it's all a little confusing that early in the morning!  I am borrowing a knee brace from a friend for my knee.  It's really tight, so I literally can not feel anything in my knee, so not sure if it's supposed to be that tight, but I am glad my knee did not hurt!  So I am going to try and finish training for this half.  I am running a 5K race next week, I think, it's coming up, I know that.  Today I did 2.6 miles, then decided that might not be what the doctor meant when she said start back slow.  Oh well! 

And then there is this one!  She is loving the attention from mom and dad.  She misses Molly, but I think she is liking the only child gig.  When her and Molly see each other on Face Time they scream like high school girls, and then proceed to kiss the phone over and over.  It's funny!  But now Lucy thinks everyone Face Time's, so she is always looking at my phone, like who is on there?!  Sadly, she is disappointed a lot! 

Well, I am off to try and clean out, reorganize, and spruce up Molly's bedroom.  I have all these great plans of getting a ton of stuff finished around the house, and now I have totally lowered my expectations!  I will be lucky to accomplish Molly's room, ha!  Have a great Tuesday!
