A week on Instagram 9.6.15

>> Friday, September 18, 2015

Where has the week gone? I have been sick and it is quite frankly kicking my butt! Still have to have the girls to their activities though. I took a personal day on Tuesday and canceled everything :) Well except getting kids to school, laundry, dishes, supper etc... So finally on Friday I am working on this post :)

Hanging with the Peanuts Gang!  #harmonyhall #carowinds #heycharliebrown
We, along with everyone else in Charlotte, decided to go to Carowinds on Labor Day. It was another tough day to let the older girls ride those big rides but I did it. They had a ball! Ruby wasn't feeling it so we just followed the older ones around the park. Baby girl and I did have Dipping Dots.
My sidekick. #lovethisgirl #whatsupwiththesixfingers #wishshehadabedtime
She stays up WAY too late hanging out with me. Thankfully the Walking Dead isn't on so I am only watching Chopped right now. #shelovesmemost
Survived 4 hours of volleyball games. Baby girl was such a trooper! #volleyball #fitkids #siaa
Both girls are in volleyball this year and let me tell you it is HARD! I am having to ask friends for help because this mama can't be at 2 places at one time. Last week one had a game at 11 and the other at 12 BUT at schools across town from each other. I will not stress out. I will not stress out. I will not stress out.
17 hilly miles done with the lovely @kathymagnanti & temps were excellent!  #runger #INKnBURN #hana #mrtt #marathontraining #yumm #getinmybelly
What do you eat after running 17 miles? A Burning Love Burger from Red Robin that is what! #YUM

That's all folks!


My week on Instagram 8.30.15

>> Monday, September 7, 2015

It was a crazy week last week and I had intended to post a non-Insta post but that didn't happen. Life with these 3 is crazy! So here is a catch up of what we have been doing.

2nd week of 1st grade. *sigh* It's getting real!  Spelling tests already 😠 #dontevenknowhowtotagone
2nd week of 1st grade and this girl got spelling homework. Like 14 words and 2 sentences! Granted the words were easy BUT then they threw in some signs (cents, dollars etc..) that I wasn't aware of. Sneaky teachers.
Creating #rainbowloom foot jewelry today at the zoo. #doyourememberrainbowlooms #craftykids #itshotoutsidebutnotinhere #thelucaszoo #footjewelry #fancyshouldbehermiddlename
Remember when the rainbow looms were all the rage? We lost interest too but they dragged them out last week surprising me and made some foot jewelry. They wore them as hand jewelry to school the next day. I don't remember a lot of useless toys like this laying around when I was growing up.
A day at the lake is worth a month in town. #lakelife #lakegirls #kayak #paddle
I penciled in a kayaking date with a few mamas who live near me. Our lake is so far down and you don't realize it until you are out there. It was so nice to do something for me last week that DIDN'T involve marathon training.
The Force is strong with this one. #starwars #pinklightsaber #fancyshouldbehermiddlename #maytheforcebewithyou
This one. She has absolutely no interest in Star Wars but she does like pink and things that light up and potential weapons so...
I added .1 to make it a half marathon. Why not?  Found a #neenahfoundry grate as well. I'd say my day started out awesome!  #marathontraining #peaks2creak #mrtt #runhappy #motherrunner #INKnBURN #hana #run
Marathon training is chugging along. These final weeks leading up to October's race will be my highest mileage runs. It really drains me. I went to bed at 8pm last night because I was exhausted. Mostly because I was up since 3 not able to fall back to sleep more than the running. Each week I dig a little deeper to get me to my goal. I am the kind of person that really needs that goal too because otherwise I would blow off my weekend runs.

That's all. I was so busy I barely took pictures *gasp*. Have a great week!
