Simply Summer

Not too much new here, just muddling our way through a short week.

Why is it a short week? Nate has Lasik on Friday! I'm so excited for him, I know he'll be just as pleased as I am with mine!

Other than that we managed to still run today in between raindrops. We're inching so close to our end goal I can taste it. But I haven't wanted to say much because we're at the point in the training program that we actually made it to last year - and then I got sick - so I'm a wee bit gun shy at the moment. Fortunately we're both (knock on wood) feeling good and doing good right now, so I am confident we will get there.

Summer is just not happening so far - but it did officially start yesterday. I have so many things I want to do this summer and have been reading friend's lists - but as I said earlier, I don't think I'm going to make a list this year. I got kind of disappointed when I didn't hit even half of my list last year. This is not in offense to anyone who has made a list - that's a good way to approach summer too, I'm just trying to go at it differently this year.

Right now my biggest goals are just simply - eat outside as much as possible when weather allows, attend the concerts I have tickets for already, run the Torchlight 5K in July (going to make myself register before the week is over I think) and take our St. Louis trip in July as well.

There's work to be done at home as usual, but again, we'll do as much as we can when we can!

In short, I want to enjoy this summer, but I'm going to try to simplify it - I'm not going to over think it this year. I will have fun, I will work hard and I will enjoy every moment!

Now, if we could just get that sunshine to come back!

This will be a great summer with or without the lists ;)
