Rg – your boy is such a cute little talker! Mine was a silent little observer all this time. My DH is very very quiet (unlike me) so I think DS might be more like him than me. Pediatrician said 6 words from little boy by 18mo is kinda what he is looking for. Birds at the reserve. Lots of birds. Herons etc. I watched that movie “A Big Year” and it made me want to take up bird watching.
Zorbs – red canoe looked awesome. I love love love bok choy. Esp baby bok choy.
Rg/zorbs - Ravioli is actually made with wontons which you cut into squares, wet together and boil in a broth for about 3 mins. Super quick and easy. I spend 20-30mins on cooking in the week.
Mer – yoru TR was so cute. I loved reading it. This is my third fm. I have done three, and my goal in each has been to finish Miami (5.28), Area 51 (6.30), SF (3.57). I would like to race one now.
Cx2 – so cute on your playing little girl. Very exciting to be running in new shoes. What did you buy from carters the other day?
Mrszm – would love a pic of your xmas sweater btw. No idea on nike thingy.
Shelby – I just try to get through my training too – no matter what, I try to get it done. I switch out perfectionism for “good enough”. It works. Hope you guys are ok without DH. I know it’s hard, but try not to compare yourself to your peers – you have a lovely LO, you are single-parenting it for a year – you have just moved – you have a lot on and I think you are doing wonderfully. Give yourself a pat on the back. I can manage anything under 9 in the week and not really be affected by the time/miles. More than 9, I am a bit stressed.
Arm – those little runs for me are often the sorest – my recovery easy runs. I have learnt to take them a lot easier than I want to. And you know you are on FIRE right now – look at that PR 5k you did! Come and do Nashville fm! Or run the half! Would LOVE to meet you and your fam.
Ernie – I find 1000m tough – it’s more than a sprint/ dash around the track but it’s not as daunting as 1m so you get the speed but also the endurance. Plus it’s really useful for 5k/10k training to help me with pace. If I had free choice, I would be doing 100m and 200m sprints in every workout! I love short sprints. I love kicking at the end of a race and passing people.
Spike – nice job on the cooking and eating veggie! Fun! I would totally have eaten dog-paw smooched lasagna.
Simon – enjoy storytime. Nice job on your speedwork!

ER - walk at lunch. I remembered shoes, but forgot socks. I'll likely go anyway.FR - well, sunday was a healthy soup, monday was a healthy soup, tuesday was DH fried chicken (but still everything was homemade)...now MIL is begging DH to go out to dinner. I swear that woman can't go more than 2-3 homemade meals before she just HAS to eat out. Oh well, last night she is here so we'll be heading out for dinner! Should be fun.TR - at daycare today and her baby buddy gave her a hug first thing. so cute! I hope she isn't too tired for dinner tonight. "talking" up a storm. She and DH have conversations and it is so adorable I can't stand it!PGR - feeling bigger, baby boy is getting stronger. NRR - back to work.
Bermy- I'm still going to eat the pasta- its in the fridge. I was just annoyed that the corner is all mooshed because my dog wouldn't listen to me.

beskirted & manicured
Ordered some basecoat online and they sent topcoat instead. Oh the humanity.
mer - I was thinking of other times I could run that don't rely on DH being home: at the gym after work, or after I put B down for his nap, but neither of those are very appealing.
cx2 - when B was your DD's age, he was already down to 1 nap. My current car is 10.5 years old with 208000K on it and is toast, my dad had a 323 that he put 300000K on it, traded it in and someone bought it and drove it for another few years. My ex bf also had a Mazda that he drove for over 300000, so I think I'm being shafted.
mrszm - I kind of liked the dentist as a kid too.
shelby - I think poop is better than no poop. But 4-5x a day would definitely get annoying!
arm - try to make half of each meal/snack produce.
Ernie - you are way too fast for me, girlfriend.
spike - my DH would probably flip out over the idea of giving B melatonin, but you have intrigued me. I have to admit I loled at the dog smooshing your lasagna. I always want my hair blonder too. i think I'm a dumb blond in a Chinese body.
simon - enjoy your mom's visit!
rocky - as long as MIL is paying for all those dinners out..how many more hours before she leaves?

zorbs- what is your new car? Our mazda we just replaced was bulletproof. I drive a Mazda CX7 and I love it. Mileage isn't great though.
spike - right now I have a 2002 Protege. New car is mazda3 GS. My aunt works for Mazda so I get employee pricing.
Zorbs- I love mazdas. I almost got the 3 instead of the 6 when I bought my first one back in 2005, but DH was still 300+ lbs and didn't fit in the littler car so well. Enjoy!
zorbs - DH drove a mazda too when we started dating.. it was used and falling apart but he sold it to another guy who put a couple hundred bucks into it and is still driving it today... i think his was a 1996...
bermy - i bought more clothes of course.. ha... a couple of one piece fleece outfits for when we need to go out in the cold for short periods of time.. unlike a lot of babies, C doesn't wear pants that often simply b/c it's a pain for me to take them on and off to change her diaper. I buy her "practical" and comfortable clothes and she only owns 3-4 nicer outfits, and by nicer I mean actual pants with a matching onesie. Baby girl clothes are adorable and it's hard to not get carried away but I don't see the need to put C into really nice clothes when she's playing at home.
cx2- R never wore pants at home and never wore shoes until this fall. The only nice clothes he has are the ones grandma buys for him. Now that he's bigger I don't like putting him in onesies, so I prefer tshirts and pants because they are more practical.
Spike/Cx2 - I can't stand onesies on Em anymore. People just don't get it. DH is adamant that she wear a onesie underneath her clothes in the winter. I'm like, fine, you change her diaper with an extra layer of clothing. We have way too many clothes for Em though, but i prefer tunic style tops (she has a long torso) with legging, form-fitting pants so her pants don't catch on anything when she plays at school. MIL prefers dresses w/ frills, bows, tights, etc. I'm like, have you SEEN this kid climb on stuff?! But yeah, onesies should be no more and people keep getting them for us. I hate to be ungrateful, but enough is enough.
