Thursday Thoughts

Adulting is hard! – Wanting all the things and making responsible decisions is tough! Paying off my student loans was great! The hot tub crapping out was not. We really want a new hot tub, but made the decision we don’t want to take out a loan to get a new one. We know our washer, dryer, stove, microwave… are all getting up there and many of them have been repaired by us already.

Hot tubs are amazing- I didn’t realize how much I would miss our hot tub, but once it drained itself this winter (not the first winter it has done this), I realized how nice a soak could be!

Go St Louis Half Marathon is a little over a week away. Hubby and I are taking the kiddos out of school for a couple days and making it a run-cation! AND I get to see one of my college roommates and her family since they are kind enough to host us. I am bummed that the river is flooding and they had to re-rout the race. Now we don’t get to pass directly under The Arch in the last mile. I didn’t realize this was important to me, but I’m thoroughly bummed.

My left ankle is still giving me grief. It is a bit better after I used KT Tape. As long as I keep stretching and icing it is ok. I should probably be wearing shoes all the time, but I just can’t get myself there.

Spring– it is warmer, the snow is melting, everything is a sandy, muddy mess! LOVE what it means is coming!There was THE BRIGHTEST cardinal in one of our apple trees this morning. I do like the idea of it being a loved one checking in and being close. Even without this thought, I think they are beautiful!

Nap Time– being a daycare mama, I am struggling with kiddos who just aren’t napping. A couple are phasing out of naps, and a couple need them, but refuse- LOUDLY.

What are your thoughts today? Any fun runs coming up? What is your favorite way to relax?
