Happy Friday y’all! I hope everybody has had a great week. For today I am borrowing a writing prompt from a few other bloggers that I follow. If we were having coffee…
I may never get to meet many of you in person. So the idea is that I am going to give you a virtual coffee date on the blog today! I will talk about what’s going on this week, random thoughts, and life in general. So grab a cup and join me!
If we met for coffee, I would tell you that I am SO happy that it *officially* Spring! I am SO over the cold. And being from Alabama, I can say that the snow has worn out its welcome in our state this year. And that is saying something if you know how much people usually pine away for a rare snow here. I love Spring!
If we met for coffee, I would tell you that I had a work conference this week. Those things can be tricky, especially when I am trying to watch my diet, since they feed us two meals and endless snacks each day. I would tell you that I was thankfully able to stay on plan! I even avoided the candy dish that sat in front of me the entire time. We were lucky that it was held in a venue that had lots of space to walk around. So I was able to take walk breaks, which was nice. And my Fitbit is still keeping me motivated to move more.
I would tell you that my son was sent home sick from daycare this week with a fever and a cough. Again. Sigh. We had a few really restless nights with not a lot of sleep this weeks thanks to that persistent coughing. Then on that note I would fill up my coffee cup with some more. 🙂 I am so thankful to my mother-in-law who was able to watch him so that I did not have to miss my work conference. And boy was I hitting up the coffee pot all week to keep me awake and functioning.
If we met for coffee, I would tell you that I have started distracting myself during treadmill time with Amazon Prime videos. I order everything from Amazon, so getting Prime was basically a no-brainer. This is our third year. Totally worth it for us. And the videos! Yet another benefit to our Prime membershipthat I did not know about until recently (free 30-day trial here, if you want to try it out, FYI). I just started watching Parenthood, which has already made me cry twice! I am glad I was at home and not at a gym, or I am sure I would have been getting some looks. But y’all the show is just so GOOD! Even though I am only on episode three. I love it!
If we met for coffee, I would tell you that my son must be going through a growth spurt because he is eating EVERYTHING in site! His appetite has grown even over the last couple of weeks. I am bracing myself for feeding this one in the teenage years!
I would tell you that I am in desperate need for a haircut, a car wash and some new clothes and shoes. But somehow I never seem to get around to this kind of thing. It seems that I am always trying to handle things that are more pressing/urgent. If you are a mom too, I may ask you if this ever gets better?!
If we met for coffee, I would tell you that I did start looking for some new running shoes, and I felt like such an old fuddy duddy. Because ALL of the shoes looked so obnoxiously bright to me! My eyes hurt just looking at all the neon. I know this is “in” right now to have bold colorful running shoes, but I am having a hard time liking this on MY own big feet. LOL!
If we were having coffee I would now ask you to tell me about your week. Any news? What’s going on in your world? Feel free to play along in the comments!
