Every morning should start with a good laugh. This morning I got to work, completed my normal morning routine, started talking to Bobbi, looked at my feet, and GASP! I’m wearing one black flip-flop and one brown flip-flop. OH DEAR! I even have an important walkthru at 9:30am. No time to run home and change shoes – I just have to laugh and go about my day!
Yesterday was beautiful outside, so I broke part of the training plan – I ditched the tread mill and hit the trails at 64th Street. I even made the husband and the dog join me. I pulled my Garmin out of the electronic basket in our living room, dusted it off, and put it back on the charger.
We walked (arms and booty shaking) all the way to the boat ramp parking lot. My 20 minutes of speed walking was up – and NO PAIN IN MY LEG! That deserves a high-five! We turned around and just enjoyed the day and each others company on the walk back to the car. We even took a quick detour to let Alex play in the bay.
While we are making the most of spring break on the east coast, Cole is having a blast in Nashville! My boy is growing up! Mr. Timid, Afraid to Try Anything, Over Analyzer Cole FINALLY got on his dirt bike at his Dad’s house. His dad bought him the dirt bike for his 3rd birthday and Cole has always been too afraid to ride it. Not anymore! He can’t get enough. He is begging to go faster and is even changing gears on his own. Over the past few weeks, he is really enjoying himself and trying new things. It makes my heart happy because I know he is happy. Once he steps outside of the safety box, that crazy boy really amazes me!
Spring has been good to our household! Cole’s opening up to new experiences, I’m training again, Christian let go of his embarrassment and anxiety to arm shake, booty shake walk with Alex though lots of crazy dogs yesterday, and Alex…….he’s enjoying being a dog!
Enjoy the spring! Open yourself up and see what comes your way! The freedom you will feel is addictive!

I love that Alex’s paws are included in the foot shot!
