SMP = Seven Minute Post
This week has felt so. stinkin'. long. I can't believe it's only Thursday. Having sick kids last week has made this feel like my first week back after Christmas break. I'm NOT in my groove. I've had a few scheduling snafus this week, but thankfully nothing too major. I'm just ready for my brain and calendar to start communicating again.
I dreamed last night that some of my extended family came to Colorado Springs to visit and decided to climb Pikes Peak around 6pm one evening. I was freaking out and trying to warn them about safety and nocturnal mountain predators (that's a rational fear) but they wouldn't listen so off we trekked in the dark. Whew. Glad I woke up from that dream.
Will has decided that instead of running track this spring, he wants to play lacrosse. John took him last weekend and got the gear he needs to get started. I'm proud of him for having the confidence and determination to learn something new...especially when his friends that play have been playing for a long time. And I'm excited to learn about this sport too!
I am reading a fascinating book right now (more on that later) that has me contemplating a grain-free diet. The health reasons are pretty compelling but I just don't know if it's a viable long-term eating plan. Especially with a family of five. I do not enjoy cooking separate meals and I'm not sure I can convince my family to go grain-free. My seven minutes are up (I actually ran over a bit) but I'll re-visit this topic again soon.
Have a great day, peeps.
