So I'm feeling much more like myself lately. Which is awesome!  Work is a total 180 from a few months ago. I now work with two of the funniest ladies ever and laugh every day. Like stomach hurting kind of laughter. It's great.

Spring Break is this week and we are actually taking a real honest - to -God vacation. Not our normal cabin in a state park vacation where I still have to cook and clean the whole time!  We leave for Branson in the morning. We are staying in a resort with an indoor water park. We plan to visit the Ripley's Believe It Or Not Odditirium and The Butterfly Palace. And... I am going ziplining.  No one else wants to go but Bill said go for it. I'm terrified of heights so I'm not really sure why I want to do this so badly. LOL. I'll probably post a million pictures because I got my camera repaired and will take a billion pictures I'm sure!

After we get back, I have a half marathon April 5th. I'm going to go visit a good friend for the weekend who lives up where the race is. I'm excited about that as well. It will be #4.  April 26 (Isabelle's birthday) will be my 5th.  Having three half marathons so close together will qualify me to join Half Fanatics, and I'm stoked about that, too.

Last weekend Bill sent me a text, a picture of the December calendar.  I had no idea why he would send me that so my response was "??"  LOL  He sent back a zoomed in picture of the last week of the month where it said "Bill off" with the caption "Be ready. "  Still confused, I asked what I needed to be ready for.  He said, "Don't you have a race that week?"  I could have screamed into the phone, I was so shocked and so happy!  He took off of work for us to go to Texas so I can do the New Years Double.   A half marathon on New Years Eve.... follows by a half marathon New Years Day.   The medals are AMAZING!  It's a big challenge, obviously. But I totally have time to train.  My sister and I wanted to do it but neither of us thought our husbands would be on board for it.  But we were wrong!  I only mentioned it to Bill once, as a "it would be so cool to do this" kind of thing.  I didn't beg or nag or anything!  

Needless to say, I have a lot to look forward to!

In other obsessive news, my crochet business is creeping along.  Not booming as it was at the beginning of the year but I've been steadily working on dolls.  I'm ok with that.  I have a lot of personal projects I want to do as well and it's hard to balance it all.  The business is for fun so I don't really want to be so swamped that I can't do anything else.  My mood blanket is coming along but I am really bored with it so I may be taking it a different direction come April.   I'll update more on that after I finish up March.  

Hope everyone has a great week!  Look for a Spring Break post soon!

  1. So glad you're feeling more like yourself, and I hope y'all have a wonderful time I n Branson! I remember going there as a kid and having a great time.

    I looked up the New Years Double, and it's in a city about an hour away from me! I might sign up for the double 5Ks. Looks like fun!
