Caffeine Withdrawal

It’s been a little dicey the past few days around my house.  I woke up on Tuesday and decided I was going to give up caffeine.  I’ve been consuming waaaaaaaaay too much soda and coffee lately but been feeling ridiculously exhausted.  The fact that I can consume approximately 5000x the recommended daily dose of caffeine…

Quick Update

I spent the last week lounging on the beach, reading and soaking up the sun in the Outer Banks.  I think it’s going to take a few days for me to settle back into our routine (just in time for school to start!) but I went to the doctor today for my follow up so…

Friday Randomness

Funny, I just talked about how hard it’s been to drag myself out of bed lately and here I am this morning bright and early, the only one up in my house.  I didn’t get to bed until around 12 last night, but for some reason, I was wide awake at 6.  I laid in…

All over the place

Did you read this article yesterday?  It’s about how the cost of raising children has gone up in the last 50 years. “A new government report says child-rearing has increased 23% since 1960 even adjusted for inflation. A lot of the reason has to do with more expensive housing as well as higher costs for…

Three Weeks Down

Three weeks in the boot, less than two until I see the doctor again.  I’m nervous and excited about it.  I had planned to start some easy spinning this week, but the more I thought about it, the more I felt like I didn’t want to risk over doing it.  I took off running for…

New Life Plan

A friend sent me this picture the other day: Before I talk about the picture, a little background.  I’ve been trying to convince Lawrence for a while that we need to move to the Caribbean and open up a bar on the beach there.  When we were in St. Kitts a few years ago, we…

Vegas

Lawrence had a conference last week in Vegas and since I’d never been, we thought it would be fun for me to tag along.  We got in Wednesday afternoon, checked into the hotel and then headed out to Red Rock Canyon.  My brother and his wife and my sister and her husband went there when…

New Goals

Trip pics coming soon but in the meantime, some goal talk. In the past few months as this injury has dragged on, I’ve had a lot of time to think about my goals and what I hope to accomplish running.  I’ve been back and forth. Part of me wants to see how fast I can…

Dropping In

I’ve been mia the few days because Lawrence and I were busy hanging out in Vegas!  My favorite part of the trip was our visit to Red Rock Canyon.  I wish I hadn’t been confined to the boot because we would’ve been able to do a lot more exploring but we saw as much as…
