Wednesdays are for taking some time to appreciate the little things, and really this week I need to do that. We have so many BIG things coming up, I’m missing the little ones all together.
Like this blog. This is my 96th post – and once I hit 100 I am going to take a little blog vacation before I settle in on a good posting schedule. I’m sure you all love reading every little word I spew out, but honestly I don’t need to update this thing five times a week! I am not that interesting. However my blog is a little thing that I have going right now that I really do love. I like the look of it, I like you readers, and I like these link-ups and updates. I’m really going to like it in a few years when I look back on what I wrote about during this exciting time in my life.
However if I keep posting as much as I do now I’ll be reading a lot of random stuff. I don’t think I’m going to want to look back on baby bangs and fake nursing bra bottles.
Anyways – another little thing? My husband still sends me flowers for no reason. Well, he has a reason. This week’s reason was to “have a good week” – and they’re beautiful flowers, too. Funny story – which I may have told before – on our wedding day, I gave him a wedding present and he told me what mine was. I was going to have fresh flowers for an entire YEAR. I was amazed – what a brilliant gift. If you know me at all you know I adore fresh flowers…………
He got me one bouquet and that was it.
When I moved to Dallas and we lived apart for a few months, he just started sending them to me – about once every two or three weeks. I was always surprised, it was always sweet… but I knew once we were together it would stop. Hasn’t stopped and I am NOT complaining. I love it. I love him.
The third and final little thing that I really appreciate is my training plan. I may have already written my schedule all the way through November 2015. Having a plan makes me feel at ease, even though I know that it will probably change a ton… seeing it on paper makes me feel much more in control. Here’s the general plan – a few weeks after Princess Olaf is born, I’m going to do Jillian Michael’s Body Revolution DVDs again. They’re great, not too hard, 30 minutes each, for 3 months. After that starts triathlon training for The Spa Girl Triathlon over Mother’s Day weekend to get me back outside. After that I will start training for the Dumbo Double Dare that I have to skip this year, and then after that I will keep up my mileage in order to run Wine and Dine again to celebrate Princess Olaf’s first birthday.
Is it a little crazy? Probably. But it makes me feel much better to have a plan.
