- Thanks to the generosity of The MC (and their desire to open up space in their utility room), we are the owners of a new-to-us treadmill. Designed to help with cold weather training for the upcoming half-marathon in April, I've been trying to log some (very slow and sporadic) miles at night after the girls are asleep. This is the time I usually devote to blogging thereby eliminating prime keyboard time.
- Going off the list that was told, written, emailed, and placed on his phone in a note app by three different individuals, The General gifted me a Kindle for my birthday last week. Having never actually previewed the device, I wasn't sure if I would enjoy an e-reader enough to warrant the purchase of such a luxury. Aside from missing the ability to visualize how far I read in one sitting or viewing how much farther I have to go, I love my Kindle and have devoted time almost every night to reading for pleasure. Good job, babe!
- Speaking of the Big 3-3, I spent last Thursday showered with love from friends and family through just about every mode of communication possible. The General worked hard to make it a special day despite being stuck at work, and I would like to publicly thank him again for his efforts to make my birthday wonderful. It's no easy feat planning a birthday celebration and then count on a four and six year old to execute. From the early morning "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" shouts to the solo serenades (completed twice) over a Rice Krispie treat illuminated by a single candle, it was a memorable day from start to finish.
4. Birthday parties, Christmas shopping, a LONG overdue evening out with friends, and recovering from aforementioned evening also played a contributing factor in the radio silence experienced at the Life and Times.
Hope some of you are still out there!
