A Little Bit O' Catchin' Up

The past few days have been simply wonderful.  Right now, I'm warm and comfy in bed, sitting next to my little boy who is napping with his hands under his head.  Aijah just went down for a nap.  For 5 minutes I just ran my fingers through Jet's hair and over the curves of his face, thinking about all the things I love about him.  So precious.  Last week was rough, but this week has been heaven sent.  Highlights.

Today (awesome):
-Ran on a new path across from Weyerhauser.  Have been curious about it for years.  Passed the river several times.  Need a new playlist.  Hoedown Throwdown isn't doing it for me anymore...bummer. 
-Got grocery shopping done early to make room for a longer adventure with kids and pups.
-Cooked, cleaned, mothered, fed, and got everyone ready and out the door for our trip.
-Went to the "tire swing spot."  Perfect weather.  Happy family.  We hiked.  We swung.  We ate PBJs.  We photoed.  We sat in the grass.  We climbed up hills and ran down them. 
-Looked for a planter at BRING.  No luck....decided to run another errand a different day.
-Came home, snacked on cantalope, read books, and fell asleep.
-Watched some Rachael Ray.  Clinton Kelly, let's be friends. 
-Took a bath with Aijah...she's squirmy....AND SLIPPERY!
-Ate tons of stir-fry and a 2 bowls of sugary cereal (Game On is OVER!)
Here I am

Over the past week:
-Date night:  Mucho Gusto, Armitage Park stroll at sunset, Market of Choice eclairs
-Sisters home for the weekend!  Voodoo donuts and Hendricks Park.  Long walk by 42nd.  Lots of catching up and just feelin' good being together.  : )
-Picnic lunch with Mumsie by the river
-9 mile run on a country road in the sun, sorted out all my thoughts
-Dinner w/Durfee family at Round Table

Sure I'm missing stuff.

Remodeling the house.  Chad took off all the sheet-rock on the central wall in our house.  Open concept design....yay!!!  Much to come.  Ai yai yai!  Why can't I wrap my head around how much work it's all gonna be?  I really need to get my attitude in order.  I am dragging my feet.  Okay, Jess, it's gonna be a pain in the booty, but seriously, GET TO WORK!  Stop worrying and wondering, and just start doing, you pansy!  The more you put off now, the worse it will be later.  1 goal every day.  Start checkin' em' off.  Self peptalk.  I've noticed, when I'm hard on myself, it helps me the most.  lol.  GET CRAP DONE!  Then I'm a zombie at night and crash, but ol' well.
