We're up a bit earlier than usual today, and it's giving me an idea of what my mornings will be like next year. Luke goes to kindergarten in the afternoon, we're probably the last school district in the county that doesn't have full day yet. Today the school is having an outdoor winter Olympics, games in the snow, so he's going in the morning with everyone else. Sounds like fun to me, I want to go play games!
I'm winding up the week with mixed feelings. On the running front, I'm doing well so far for February, I've logged seven miles, and I plan to run on the treadmill after I post this. I have a six mile run planned for Saturday with the running group, and on Sunday I have a 5K. So I'm on my way to making up for miles lost in January.
I found out this week that my Mom is putting her house on the market after living there for 32 years. Yes, the haunted house. My siblings and I are bummed, it's the house where everything has happened for us, and now its time for a big change. My mom is looking at a condo in a 55+ community, which is what she needs, she's alone quite a bit. But I'm so sad to say goodbye to where I grew up, when we moved upstate, I always knew I could go back to visit, get my dose of NYC and the beach. I knew the sale would happen eventually, so I'm going to let myself be a bit sad, but also know that it's best for my Mom.
This is a photo of Eliza getting ready for beach day at school, note the snow outside the window. I love it when they have theme days at school, I'm already looking forward to being the room mom for St. Patrick's Day!
