T-41 Days......

Oh yeah, so I do still have this blog, huh? I really haven't forgotten to blog, it's just that life has forgotten to give me time to blog. Holidays + Jobs + this whole almost having a baby thing makes life so super busy! I think my Reader account has something like 120+ posts I haven't read, so whenever I see it I just quickly click off so as to not stress myself out!

Things are good here. We're not so much into Christmas this year since we're still trying to get our always under remodel house baby-friendly, and that's actually going pretty well when we're not attending a million Holiday dinner and parties! There was about a 10 day stretch where we literally had some event every single day, including two baby showers where we totally racked up on all sorts of things. And I'm close enough to D-Day now that I'm starting to be more tired, and when I do over-do it I pay for it in terms of massively swelling feet and ankles.

We still have a couple of upcoming dinners, and of course the holidays, but the dance card is starting to slow and point towards baby day! At my appt this week my doc said around the middle of January we could start talking induce days for the last week of January. So, it looks like we will be parents by the end of next month! Truly frightening.

I still go to the gym several days a week and walk on the treadmill. I get stared at constantly and have about a billion people stopping me to ask when I'm due so it's becoming more logistically challenging to even get my workout done! It has been nice having no training plans or goals these last few months, and just doing whatever I want. My goal all along was to run through the end of October, and keep hitting the gym to walk through the end of December, which looks like it's going to turn out just fine. I don't have any 09 goals right now, I think I'd like to do a fall half and I'm sure I'll do my usual local races. Honestly, I don't know when I'll run another 26.2 and I seriously don't care. Right now I look forward to lazy Saturday mornings with Brent cooking us some seriously good eggs and bacon, and just spending time together as a little family. I've got shelves of medals and trophies, I don't need more to prove anything to myself. Running and fitness will always be there, the stricter edges of training and what-not can wait a while.

Anyway, there's a nap calling my name. Poor Brent has a terrible cold right now. He went to the doc Friday and got loaded up on meds, which really haven't done a thing. He's been snotting and resting all weekend. Our weather has been absolutely awful lately & basically half the city is sick. It rains practically every day for about the last 3 weeks, and the temps literally swing back and forth 50 degrees on a 24 hour basis! Friday - rain and 60's, then yesterday cloudy and cold in the 40's and today it's in the low 30's and dropping down to 13. It's arctic out there and of course we don't have any snow, if it's going to be this cold we deserve some pretty snow! I was sick last Saturday with a stomach bug, so we haven't had the best of weekends lately. Brent's snoring away next to me on the couch, and Pippin is too, so I think it's my turn to get in on the action! We were out late to a party last night so we could all use some extra sleep today, and I have a dessert I need to make later for a dinner tomorrow. I'm thinking something fruity and semi-healthy, following all the heavy foods of late (and coming up this week!)

Have a wonderful week and a very Merry Christmas!

hope everyone feels better for x-mas. Tom's sick too - no fun. Anyway, hope we can at least stop by before the birth happens.

Miami Marathon approaches and I always think of you and Brent. Things have sure changed since then, huh?
Happy New Year and wishing you all good things in 25 days (or so).
