Vacation Week Recap
Why do vacations always fly by so fast? It's very sad that the vacation week is coming to an end. So let's just move onto bigger and better things (breaks) like - 7 more weeks until April Break and 16 more weeks until Summer Break! I am worse than the students.
How did I spend my week off from school?
It was really a laid back kind of week. Tucker had quite a few sleep overs, we did some shopping, Ward and I worked on sanding and painting our bedroom and the ceilings in our bedroom and kitchen.
Stacy and I tried out Crossfit.
I also did a lot of running this week. Yes, I do run every week. But this vacation weeks are extra nice because the running happens mid-day in sunlight!
I was featured on Another Mother Runner. That was my rockstar day.
I bought myself an early birthday present. I absolutely love these socks. I have decided that these socks will be my official racing socks for 2012. You can get them too for less than $12 at Amazon. Actually, right now they are $11.03, but two days ago they were $12.
Yesterday I did take the kids to the Maine State Museum. Admission is quite inexpensive ($3 for the 3 of us) and it's a 15 minute drive.
Then last night we had family over to celebrate my birthday. We did celebrate a bit early since my actual birthday is on Tuesday, the 28th, but it's break and I wanted to do it early.
I did get an awesome YMX shirt and some Zipfizz from Jill and then some cash from my dad and my in-laws.
I'm pretty sure she rocks as a sister-in-law. Don't you think?
I am definitely going to be spending the $$ on some new shoes. I really want to get girlier with my new shoes but at the same time, I know mens shoes fit me better. I have a lot of thinking/shopping to do!
I also wrote my Yaktrax review after walking in the woods to find snow. I definitely called it in the post when I said after I post this we'll get snow. I actually said something like a nor'easter. We did not get a ton of snow, but we did get a couple of inches last night and it is so pretty.
Ward and guys are doing their 20-miler today, but before they head out, I'm going to get out there with my Yaktrax for a 5 miler, or more. We'll see how I feel. Have you entered my Yaktrax giveaway? Enter here. If you live in a snowy place, you will not regret it.
Later on tonight, the Rail Trail Chicks and I will be heading out for another birthday dinner to the fantastic Slates in Hallowell. I seriously love February break with all of the birthday celebrations!
Finally, I need announce the winner of the Larabar's Giveaway. Congratulations, Amy, over at Running Escapades. She's another New England blogger and a teacher. She just ran the Hamptons Half Marathon and it ends at the beach. I need to add that Half Marathon to my bucket list.
