What’s Up? Wednesday

So it’s the middle of the week and I can’t believe that I only have one more day before the kids go on spring-break this Friday! YAY!!! I love it when the kids are home, I don’t plan any special activities necessarily, but I just love having them here with me as little presences in the house keeping me company as we get things done. (I know right? It must be so exciting to be my kids!)

This week has been crazy busy! On Saturday Paul and I ran in the Ukrops 10K and it was an amazing experience, I almost died, am pretty sure I cried at some point, but I met my goals of running the whole time, and we came in under my goal time of 70 minutes by over 5 minutes!!!! I am not a runner by any stretch of the imagination (having run my first mile ever last summer) but I was so proud of us! (Paul could have run it much faster, but stayed with me the whole time.)
Don’t you love this picture? Out of the thousands of pictures they took of the over 40,000 participants, this is part of the only evidence I was even there! (Do you think I look stressed much? Although Paul isn’t exactly looking happy either, maybe I was worrying him?) If you click on the picture you will be taken to the brightroom site where there is a 22 second-ish long video showing us cross the finish line on the right side of the screen. DON’T BLINK or you will miss us!
I have been doing my embroidery fieldwork for my Craft Capstone class, so my degree can finish up in 5 weeks! I am gone a lot for fieldwork though, and can’t wait for it to be over, although I am enjoying the time spent embroidering! I have a couple of sewing projects I am really excited about, (but I am waiting on starting them until this weekend) and I have a test on Friday that I have been studying for, but that is about it so far for the week (other then Isaac’s footlocker)
Oh! and I had my hair done, and my picture taken for my graduation announcements, which although I think I look terrible, everyone assures me it is a very nice picture. (it’s bound to be better than the race picture!) I’ll share it here after the announcements go out in a couple of weeks.
So what have you been up to this week?

    Wow and well done – you did it! And in fantastic time too. I just ran my first 10k in more than 10years a couple of weeks ago and felt absolutely elated at the end of it. I couldn’t believe I did it and wished I had taken someone with me to share the experience with. I’m glad you had Paul with you.

    I’m so impressed with y’all. I love your adventures.

    And, hey, have Isaac and Emmie seen any of the Avatar sequel – Legend of Korra? I may have missed the start.
