Feb 3

-It's been kind of a rough week. Lizzy wasn't feeling well Monday and Tuesday--low grade fever, runny nose, cough. Her fever broke Tuesday, and she's been sleeping a ton since then. She had also been going through the separation anxiety thing lately, so she basically wants to be held 24 hours a day. If I set her down in the living room to walk into the kitchen...she is HYSTERICAL. And, as I feared on Sunday when my heartrate was through the roof on my run, I'm coming down with it too. I'll probably call the doctor for Lizzy today because her cough is sounding pretty junky. Of course, I am more than willing to take her into the doctor if that's what she needs, but I feel like they're always like "Bring her in and let's take a look", and then once I bring her in, 9 times out of 10 then say, "Oh, why don't you bring her back in three days and we'll see how she's doing?" Which then means I'm paying two co-pays for them to tell me nothing other than she has a cold. At the same time, I'm terrified that the one time that I don't take her in, it WILL be more than a cold.

-Speaking of running, we don't have a Road Runner Sports or Feet Fleet or anything like that out here in the boonies, so I went online to Road Runner Sports, plugged in all the info about my super crazy high arches, and video taped myself walking to see whether I pronate or supinate. It spit out 5 or 10 different shoes that it recommended for me. I wrote them down to save up for a pair sometime in March. But then I went to ROSS, and they had one of the exact shoes recommended for me (Puma Ventis). I call them my snazzy shoes, because they're purple, and I've never had purple shoes of any sort before. That said, I haven't been able to try them out yet because of the aforementioned getting sick and holding Lizzy 24/7 thing.

-I started Beth Moore's study of David yesterday. I've never done a Beth Moore study before, so I didn't realize that there's about 45 minutes of daily homework. It's like a class! I confess--I loved school. Even college. I am a total nerd. Still, I'm excited that this is a pretty in-depth study that really goes into the Greek and Hebrew meaning of words. Now, if I could only get Lizzy to go into childcare without flipping out so that I could actually watch the video. We try every time, but they always bring her back out to me within 5 minutes or so because she's hysterical and can't be calmed down. Poor baby.


  1. Hope you girls get to feeling better! Fleet Feet-woohoo!!! Love them and Big River Running. Before buying in the store, if you don't find them again, you should check out some places online-like $50 cheaper than in the store. Keep running girlie!

  2. Oooh, purple shoes sound fun!

    Everyone around here is getting sick. I'm using hand sanitizer about 20x a day to try to prevent it, eek!!

  3. I cannot tell you how jealous I am that you found your shoes at Ross. I bet they were a bargain, too. Oh, one day I dream of my finding my trainers there!
