Friday Fives

1.  Mother's Day.  Where my family eats make your own shish-ka-bobs and eats for hours on end while talking, laughing and catching up. 

2.  Sunday, actual Mother's Day, I will be riding this:
and Pete will be riding this:

(minus the child) to the first motorcycle event of the summer.  Then I will be talking Pete into going for a long ride with me on the back of his bike.  I do my best thinking on the back of his bike and it makes me cry to think that I will miss several months of riding.

3.  I am going to try to talk Pete into surprising a certain 10 year old at school for lunch.  She will be ecstatic.

4.  I am determined to put my new running shoes to work this weekend.  Even if all I do is walk on the treadmill at the gym.  I need to feel my body working and sweating again.  It's time.

5.  I am still working on living in Grace.  It seems ever appropriate that I chose this word for 2013.  I need to sit in my positives and realize that I will live through the bad things with the support of those around me.

  1. Happy Friday! I know how hard it is to get to the gym. When I was super stressed out, I spent my time in front of the tv with snack foods. I felt horrible! Gradually, I found a routine that worked for me. At first, it felt forced and it was so hard to get to the gym. I've been doing the gym thing for maybe 5 years now and its just a regular part of my life. I am used to scheduling the time for it. Even those ridiculously busy days get gym time. If you are patient with yourself, you will get back to it. I hope you have a fabulous weekend! Esther Norine Designs
