whew....people, i haven't looked forward to a friday the way that i have on this week in a looooong time. it was a killah week...but it was productive.
**hkay had ballet camp this week. this entailed an hour drive there and back each day. totally worth it because she absolutely LOVED it, but a drain nonetheless. i'll post on it next week!
**during hannah's three hour camp, ava girl and i hit up the local shopping for back-to-school stuff. hkay has some totally cute new clothes (but alas, no turquoise sequined shoes.....dangitall. i WILL not be defeated in my quest though....those shoes are a must have for her turquise plaid shirt that i got her. it's over-the-top or nothing at ALL!) and two, count'em...TWO new lunchboxes. her mia got her a fabulous pink and white polka-dot lunchbox from pottery barn for the days that hkay's feeling all sweet. i got her an awesome hot pink and black tin hello kitty lunchbox for the days that she's feeling a lil sassy. i might be more excited about them than she is ;) my girl also has some brand-spankin-new crayons, pink erasers, scissors, and other whatnots for kindergarten. there's no turning back now!
**i signed up for a 5k folks!! yep....it's on like donkey kong from this point on. i have actually successfully run 3.1 miles (TWICE!) in the past week, now i just have to get my time to somewhere a scootch under 6 hours. my goal is around 24 minutes. but get this....the race is on october 2nd. for those of you not "in the know"....that is my 31st birthday. that's right....i'm going to attempt what may be the event that ends me....on my birthday. hey, nothing says "happy birthday" quite like cardio-pulmonary rescusitation...right? those of you who might actually be AT the race (you know...with signs, cowbells, streamers and confetti.....oh yeah, and an OXYGEN TANK!), please make sure the emt is at least mildly attractive. i don't want to wake up from my birthday-near-death-experience to some uggo giving me the breath of life....mmmmkay?
and now.....a lil blast from the past (for anyone who is even mildly interested in reading these old posts. i know that i am.....but my life fascinates me, so yeah).
july 28, 2008: our lives in three paragraphs: hey....everyone was sick....what did you people EXPECT from me!! and it figures...chandler is STILL the best "sick kid" in the house. just give them boy his blankie and he's al good :)
july 29, 2009: summer time updates: this one was interesting for me to read because it documents some of chan's first words. i had forgotten about a couple of these! and we DID sell our house...say yay on that.
