Today’s Calendar Quote:Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree.” — Martin Luther

The sun is out today!!!!!
It’s been over a week since I saw it last and it is glorious haha

The worst part of winters here isn’t the cold or the snow, but the lack of sunshine for long periods of time. It’s a lovely spring day today though and while it is so lovely, it is kind of cruel too. It’s only the middle of January in Canada so this beautiful warmer weather is a rather horrible tease, especially with snow expected this weekend! We already have a higher than normal snowfall so hopefully it doesn’t warm up too fast like last year and have crazy flooding for weeks. I live too close to the lake for this not to become a touch stressful!

I had a couple of day stretch of where I didn’t feel completely exhausted, but I’m back to feeling that way again. It seems my body has decided that between 4:15 and 4:30 a.m. coming up on a week now…. -_-
I have my fingers crossed for a better end to this week in regards to my sleeping issues! I can’t keep going on like this and I can’t seem to find a solution either!

It was a busy day!! I think we spent more time out of the house than it today!

Swimming lessons (through SwimAbility) at the pool across the bridge started early this afternoon and despite getting there earlier than intended and have to wait (which was difficult for my son!) he did amazing! He held hands with his instructor no problem so he wouldn’t run on the pool deck (a strange male! This is rare!), cleaned up the rings he was playing with before leaving the pool, didn’t freak out when he didn’t get the ball, and left the pool & right to me without a single hitch!
I am beyond pleased that this went so well because he loves water!!! *happy dance*

Day 67 ~ crushed PR

Day 67 ~ January 13th, 2018

I did a long run today, the first I’ve done since the fall when I did my last race of the season. It felt great and I completely crushed my 10km time!! My previous one was 49min and 55-56secs I believe and today I finished 10.3km in 50minutes even *fist pump* The hard focus on shorter, faster paced runs for the months of Nov and Dec have clearly paid off and I’m so glad!

Today’s Calendar Quote:Every day is a journey, and the journey itself is home.” — Basho

This morning was the first solo session with the new Speech Therapist that is slowly replacing the one my son has used for the last two years. It went way better than I anticipated and I am so grateful that he seems to handle new people a hundred times better now than in the past. I hope he ends up liking her just as much as his previous one, but those are hard shoes to fill! She is amazing!
