|forgot to post this one on last weeks post.|
It's time to get the kids out of the house. The day is too warm and my kids are too wild. And it's my birthday. It's been a good year. Even if the ending wasn't exactly how I imagined. Moving on!
This is my plan: Next year at this time, I hope to be stronger, faster, and healthier. If I get into the NYC 2013 Marathon, I think I'll enjoy the race so much more. I was putting too much emotional baggage into the race. Like somehow by running in honor of my mom, I would be over her death and that sense of loss would disappear. But it won't. I'll always miss her. I think I would have been disappointed to find that out had I run the race.
I haven't taken the time truly thank you for your support during my marathon training and with Fred's Team. It was a life changing experience! Thanks for being apart of it.
PS As I started writing this post Ella leaned over my shoulder and asked, "What? You're making another blog post?" It's true. I've been writing a lot this morning. Here's A Rustic Applesauce Recipe that will make your house smell amazing and a list of 10 Kid-Friendly Service Projects to do before 2012 is over. Actually if you do one on the list, consider yourself a success. I've also been pinning my heart out for Elizabeth Street. I'm still in the process of recreating/editing all of Elizabeth Streets pinboards. Someone keeps sneaking their ideas onto our boards and I can't wait to delete them. Ha! Like who's responsible for this pin?! There's a few more I'm scratching my head at . . . I'll keep you posted on my progress.
Also: Joanna's Hurricane Sandy Bake Sale was a huge success! Just so you know, I made the BEST chocolate chip cookies thanks this recipe on Smitten Kitchen. I will never use another recipe again. While I can't credit my chocolate chip cookies entirely, I will say they helped raised $2400. The best part is that Dwell Studio is going to match – so it brings the total to $4800. All the money is going to The Mayor's Fund this week. Yay! It was fun meeting some of you!
