Show Me the Mommy- Emerging from the Quasi-Mom Cave

This is a Finished for Friday AND Show me the Mommy Special edition.

This is me for basically the past week:

Disheveled hair in my Slash-esque Headband, pjs, comfy robe working in the kitchen at all hours of the day and unfortunately night.

Keepin' it real folks in the week of lots of work and spending any time not working with the boys, sleeping, or trying to get exercise in for the week. I have realized that I just can't pull anything less than 6 hours of sleep and be functional, thus very little tv or mindless internet this week.

So what got done during this laying low week?

Exercise for the week to date- 18.5 miles, 4.0 hours.

Made reservations for sorority reunion weekend at the Grove Park in July. Excited to see old friends that now publish their 30-something selves on FB.

Wrote and submitted 2 batches of questions and picked up a contact for a long term project for Feb.

Signed up for 2 races (5k in March and 5k plus pushing Ian in April)

Picked up an additional section of online teaching. Meeting tons o deadlines this week for my 3 new sections of kids. Crazy. Busy.

And all of this with 3 sick people in the house. Man colds x 3.

Luckily in my quasi-mom cave (aka my kitchen counter with my laptop) I avoided all sickness. I just knocked on a really big piece of wood.

You are kicking my butt in miles every week. You're what's motivating me to get out and run this weekend!

Also, I hope you have as much fun pushing Ian in a race as I do with Nina. I'm pushing her in the Krispy Kreme race next weekend, and it may be our last race together (before she's old enough to run alongside me!).

You rock! I can't believe how much you are working, though. Your posts are exhausting me, so I can't imagine what your actual life is like! LOL. Hope the boys feel better soon!
