Hello! How’s it going? Over here it’s slowly starting to feel back to normal, whatever that means.
I had an event over the weekend, which was a good way to keep me busy and get me to a happier place. My Grams loved gambling and it was at the Pala Casino (more on this later). Even though I didn’t gamble, I knew she would have loved it.
Minutes after Grams passed my Nina and Nino got there. (My Nina is my aunt > my mom’s sister and Grams’ oldest daughter.) My Nina was talking to Grams…this is the very special conversation that followed:
Nina: Hey mom… How’s Heaven? Who do you see up there? Who’s up there with you?
My mom: She sees dad…
Nina: He’s probably hiding from her!!
That made us laugh and was a nice little moment of my Nina being my Nina and remembering that Grams was a handful.
And I found this picture as we were going through stuff this weekend… Classic.
Okay… there’s no easy way to transition from that so let’s roll with it.
I’ve been running and eating (but it’s been LESS running and MORE eating).
Running: I ran most days last week but haven’t done much strength work (and still kept my usual rest day). After crossing ‘Run’ off my To Do list I usually just want to head to my mom’s or start work. I feel behind on everything right now. I’ll get back to cross training this week.
Food: I’ve been eating a lot of pizza. It’s delicious and easy. I didn’t want to cook last week. Then, ordered it again at an event this weekend. I’m kinda happy about all the pizza that’s been in my life lately.
Random: Spotted these light-up watermelon decorations at Marshall’s and talked myself out of getting one. I might go back for it though. That’s what I do! If I see something I like but don’t love or if it’s expensive I don’t get it right then. If I’m still thinking about it the next day I’ll go back.
