The fam took a our first family vacation to Seaworld May 04-06th. The trip was great. We went to the Riverwalk, Seaworld and Splashtown. I will update the boy’s blog with with the details. It wasn’t too relaxing but the time spent bonding as a family was priceless.
Mothers’s Day was great. I now have yet another Gar.min product. The hubby bought me a GPS for the car. Where has this been all my life. I even brought it to Florida with me…don’t leave home without it. We visited Granny and PaPa, they become ten years younger when they are around the boy. We had a great time.
Still no running…
Memorial Weekend was sort of eventful. We had a bachelor/bachelorette party on Friday for our neighbors that are getting married on the 2nd. Us crazy couples stayed out til the break of 10:30. Oh and there was just three couples out of 7. Rockin good time. Actually…the timing was just bad…graduations and family plans took precedence, but we managed to salvage dinner.
The rest of the weekend was a wash…literally. We were planning on going to Lake Livingston Monday but the weather kept us inside. It was unfortunate…I was really looking forward to getting my jet skiing on. Someother time.
Even more no running…
We had a date! The hubby and I went to see Spam.alot on Saturday. It was our anniversary present from January. The love of my life even thought to book the restaurant where we had our first official date where we both left feeling the other wasn’t interested. I guess we were wrong.
We got all gussied up and we actually got to be grownups for a night. Oh and the boy told us before the babysitter got there that he was not going to cry. OH my gosh…he may not be crying but I sure am. Slow down boy…you are growing up too fast.
Dinner was ok, the conversation was better and the show was outstanding. The hubby and I watched some of Monty Python and The Holy Grail a couple of weekends before but we didn’t finish it (he knows it verbatim), I was glad I did see what I did because I had an idea of what to expect. But oh my gosh I still was surprised at the quality. I know…I know…it’s a Broad.way performance but it was superb. I laughed till a cried…”BEEELOOOW me” Yeah…it looses something in print but man was that freakin funny.
No running…but planning to…
Sunday I left for Florida and that is where I am today. Drum roll please….
Thank you…thank you. I ran about 1.5 miles on Sunday and then walked back up the beach to the hotel. It was outstanding. Everything still worked…legs…check…breathing…check. Why had I waited so long?? I didn’t time myself because it wasn’t about that. Just revelled in the fact I was actually doing it and remembered that I want to do it more…and often.
The week has kept us busy, are portion of “stuff” was handed over for packing yesterday and our schedule has opened up considerably. Today we didn’t come into until 2p so we took advantage of a team building exercise this morning in the form of jet skiing. Oh man…did I mention how much I love to jet ski? I’ve GOT to talk to the hubby about getting one.
We ended up renting one two seater for an hour. The other two people I was with had not ridden before. I have to give it to the one that road with me, she stayed on pretty good, I only lost her twice. I wish I could bottle that adrenaline rush.
We just attending a launch briefing and everything looks great for tomorrow. No vehicle issues and weather seems to be cooperating. Everyone send good weather vibes to Florida about 6:38p your time tomorrow.
Planning to run in the AM…
We have another light day tomorrow…our “official” day will start around 12:30 in order to prep for the weather briefing at 3 then it’s “go for main engines” at 6:38.
Speaking of the hubby, he has been quite the trooper this week taking care of the boy. I am so lucky to have the support from him so I can come to Florida once a year for a couple of weeks. I’m trying to coax them into coming with me next time.
That’s all I got for now…thanks for all those still checking my blog I really appreciate the encouragement!
Have a great weekend!
