as most of my posts start, i have, of course, been meaning to post this for a while now…. but right now i am avoiding all forms of housework so it’s the perfect time for me to ‘get serious’ about my blog…
last weekend pauly ran (with our good friends caleb and libby) in his first triathlon! i was outrageously proud of him…..and significantly more nervous than he was about it. let me be clear: i had my signature *ahem* “nervous bowel issues” for him, and i didn’t sleep well at all the night before….this also solidified my decision to avoid races for myself whenever possible (which….unless you are being chased….along side several hundred other people….it’s pretty easy to avoid races….)
but with the completion of each event, my ‘constitution became much more fortified’ and i was thoroughly enjoying myself by the time he crossed the finish line. before the race, pauly asked me “any last thoughts?” to which i, as the loving, selfless wife replied, “well…just don’t throw up at the finish line. that would really embarrass me…”
after the race, it was an amazing day of beach lounging, amazing food eating…(lets not talk about the 2 solid extra pounds that came home with me from this weekend…*cough cough*…), and general hanging out and getting to be together with friends and family. my parents and sissiebear and bro-in-law came down for the event and it was so fun to get a whole day of fam-bam time.
so here are the highlights, and i’m not going to write about each one like i normally do….too many….too lazy….
okay so i guess i did write on all these….i think it was just too overwhelming and i had to give myself permission to be lazy…..(give myself permission?…who says that……oprah would be proud….)
alright, off to sleep on my giant pillow-topped mattress and drape myself in loads of down blankets, as the A/C blasts in my face. with a fan running. after i take a hot shower.
but i do love camping
