Although I doubt anyone noticed last week’s lack of Weblog Wednesday, I apologize for dropping the ball! I got my days mixed up and thought that Wednesday was Tuesday, so it was too late once I realized my error.
So this week’s post will recap two weeks’ worth of life events. For starters, last week was scary, as my father-in-law had major surgery for some very serious health issues. I won’t go into detail, but he’s thankfully out of the hospital and doing as well as can be expected.
As you all know, I recently purchased a Kindle, and I’ve been devouring book after book. Since getting my Kindle after the last Weblog Wednesday I posted, I’ve read eight books! I have quite a list of reviews I need to write.
Two weekend’s ago, my dad and his wife came to visit us, and then the next day we took a family trip to Starbucks for breakfast. I’ve been reading these books from the Kindle out loud to Jordan, and I think he loves hearing them!
That evening was Super Bowl Sunday, or, as I was telling my blogger friend Paul, Superb Owl Sunday. What I really cared about watching was the Puppy Bowl, which for some reason made Piglet quite jealous.
This past week has been pretty hectic. In addition to my father-in-law’s health woes, it was Jordan’s six-month birthday! Of course this meant a photo shoot was in order. He was an absolute doll for the camera, and I got some great photos.
Him turning six months also meant a visit with the doctor for his next set of vaccines, which of course he was none too pleased with. On Friday I had a number of Etsy orders to fulfill, and it was a day destined by Murphy’s Law: Anything that could go wrong with those orders, did go wrong. Most of what went wrong was entirely my fault though, so I was frustrated with myself.
On Saturday I went on a 14 mile run. This was my last long run before the half marathon at the end of the month. I felt great throughout the run and maintained the average pace that I hope to do on race day. I was also pleased that I managed to successfully hold myself back in the beginning and get a good negative split.
In addition to getting started on packing for our upcoming Disney vacation, I’ve been starting character development for a new fiction story I am writing! I am very excited about this writing project and look forward to sharing more details with you all in the coming weeks.
Tell me, how was your week?
Until next time,
