Tired, but for good reasons
First, before I explain that, I want to acknowledge Mermaids who gave me an award. I don’t know much about Web awards but what she said about me really touched me. She said, “…for her amazingly upbeat and positive attitude. Life keeps throwing her curve balls, but she keeps hitting them right out of the park. Reading her blog reminds me to keep a positive attitude.”
Wow. Thank you, Mermaids.
Now, someone else about two weeks ago or so gave me one as well, and now I’m embarrassed to admit I can’t remember who it was. I chalk it up to being over my head with my mom’s party.
Anyway, all parties are done, and it’s back to work today. Although, I did take off for a couple hours to walk with my daughter and the two boys up to Subway for lunch and back. That was two miles, which is the same number of pounds I lost this week at WW weigh-in tonight! On the way back to the house from a brief stop at the park for Cayden to climb on the jungle gym and swing from the “monster” bars (otherwise known as monkey bars to most of us), he and I “raced” down the hill. Keep in mind his legs are half the length of mine, but that little tyke is FAST. I had to stop three times to keep up with him. And, yes, I did run – sort of. I am now exhausted and every muscle hurts, aches, burns, feels pinched, but whatever. The look on my little grandson’s face of utter joy and excitement as he looked up at me and said “Grandma, go!” makes it all worth it.
Now I have to get caught up with work, so I’d better make this a quick post. However, I will bestow some cuteness on you in the form of Evan and Cayden. Evan was so adorable and fell asleep in the jogging stroller holding his wagon wheel treat.
Evan gets to eat Gerber finger food while we have Subway.

Dude has some crazy hat hair, plus Trixie and Daisy checking out whatever Evan might be eating.
Oops. He looked away for a minute.
