“But those who trust in the Lord will find new strength. They will soar high on wings like eagles. They will run and not grow weary. They will walk and not faint.” – Isaiah 40:31.

Three Things Thursday

1. Littlest Prince's room is finally finished! We had water damage in his room a little over a month ago and had to gut it and fix a "bunch of stuff"(that is actually the technical term).  The carpet was put down today and that was the final step!  He has been sharing a room(not sharing my bed ..I don't do animals or kids in my bed) with us for one month too long.  I'm a light sleeper and any little noise he would make would wake me up.  I'm looking forward to peaceful uninterrupted sleep tonight.  During the construction on his room I decided it would be a good idea to go ahead and have 2 of our bathrooms tiled.  In my head this made sense, my house would already be a mess from contractors coming in and out tracking dirt all over the place.  For the record, contractors do not care how clean your floors are or walls for that matter. 
From now on, one project at a time!!  The house was in total chaos and for a type A personality like myself I don't do chaos well.  At times I was down right irrational(shocker, I know.) and I would be on my hands and knees cleaning the floors and wiping down walls.  I even considered asking the workers to remove their shoes before coming inside. 

2.Tomorrow night I have a date with my boys.  I am taking them to see Alice in Wonderland and then to Maggie Moo's Ice Cream & Treatery (where I plan on overindulging in an Udderly Butter Bebopper) so Yummy!!  I have heard that Alice in Wonderland is a bit trippy, but I don't care.  Alice in Wonderland is my ALL time favorite movie from childhood. 

3. Next week is Spring Break and we were planning on spending it on the white, sandy, beaches of San Destin, FL.......not so much. Wah, Wah, Wah... Hubby had to work.  So I will be taking off work to have a "stay-cation" with the kids at home.  Actually, it will probably be more like a "work-cation" as there is a ton of stuff to be done around the house.  My brother is getting married in a few weeks and guess where the reception is.....my back yard. Woot. Woot.  So my list of activities include cleaning out the garage that we can barely walk through, tilling up the garden(yes in AL it's almost planting time), mulching the flower beds, and a bunch more stuff that makes me sleepy just thinking about.  Of course, I don't want the boys to have a sucky spring break so we'll hit up the local indoor pool, go to a museum, and do some other local activities that they are less than thrilled about. They really LOVE the beach. Hubby says he'll make it up to us.  I'm thinking a Caribbean cruise should do the trick.;)

I'm doing my first training run on hills tomorrow.....pray for me....I don't do hills....not that I can't...I just don't. I have the Rocket Run 10 miler on the 20th and I hoping hills will help take my running to another level.....
Goal for Rocket Run: sub 1:30:00

Oh one more thing! I know I called this Three Things Thursday but what I meant was 5 things... I've been doing the 30 Day Core Challenge hosted by One Run At A Time..and I am really feeling it today!

If you're new to my blog, welcome! If you're not new, thanks for stopping by!  I love reading your comments and feedback!

Grace and peace,

Glad to hear the repairs are done and normalcy can return.

Eat some ice cream for me! I will be interested to read what you think of AliceIW.

Embrace those hills...they give you great strong legs!

Molly said...

I love how you have already picked out your ice cream flavor!

Good luck on the hills, I used to despise them, but now I feel accomplished after tackling them!

I make everyone remove their shoes... I would even ask the pope it is seriously just one of my rules... ha I am not so sure I could ask big worker men though but that would drive me nuts, glad it is over!

Have fun at Maggie Moos and good luck with the hills!

Have fun on the hills! Remember - slow down and shorten your stride. Thebest tip I ever got for running hills was to lower your butt cheeks and pretend they are pushing the rest of your boy up. Power up and ease yourself back down!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and supporting my cause!

Looks like you've got your hands full! Nice-looking family! And good luck at the Rocket Run next weekend!

I just started doing hill repeats at tempo and you know what as much as i thought I would hate it...turns out I love how hard core and strong I feel when I get done!!

Let us know how the movie is!

It's so good to hear the Little Prince's room is finished and he has a fresh room to sleep in. Was Alice in Wonderland good?? I've been curious. I just started my running (again) so I can't even imagine hills yet. Good LUck!!

Wow! You have been busy! My husband is a contractor and gets upset with workers who don't work to keep a customer's house clean. He removes his shoes if needed!!!
