Rest Days and Being Crafty
This morning I was supposed to meet a friend for a nice 8 mile run. After yesterday’s awesome workout my body was screaming for a rest day. My stress fracture area was a tiny bit “achy” and my legs were SO SORE. I had run 5 days in a row which is a first in probably 18 months. So I decided to listen to my body and make it a rest day. I didn’t want to, especially because I had the time to run and someone to run with but I needed to be smart because I have a hard week ahead and I need to be ready for it.
I spent the day home with the kiddos. My oldest two are off from school for the next 2 weeks so it was the whole crew. My oldest daughter recently talked me into making a weekly meal menu out of a picture frame and scrapbook paper. (Just use expo markers to write and erase.)
|It’s just an 8×10 frame and one sheet of scrapbook paper. Super easy to make!|
She saw it at one of our friends house and it sounded easy enough to make. We have been using our new “menu” for two weeks now and I must admit that I really like it. I am trying to plan meals ahead of time which is not something I have not always done.
|Thank you, Abi for encouraging me to be more creative!|
My son recently brought home one of the best Christmas gifts ever. As soon as I saw it I knew I had something I hope to treasure for years!

|He is so proud of his plate! Anna looks proud of it too!|
And then there’s Anna. 🙂
|Making her best party face…|
|This girl loves chocolate like her mama!!|
Ashton is at an age that is not exactly Christmas tree- friendly if you know what I mean. Low resting ornaments are no match for his sneaky tree reaching skills.
|He thinks just because he is cute he can get away with anything…|
|Our family stockings… I asked Abi why she taped one more stocking at the end and she replied that it was Julie’s (her American girl doll). Of course. Why didn’t I think of that!|
And there you have it. I plan to get back on the running wagon tomorrow. It’s going to be a great week!
