Home stretch baby. Friday night I will be flying out to Boston and heading to the Cape early Saturday morning for three days with family. I need sun on this pale skin more than anything else. Oh and some lobster in my stomach. (You are welcome for getting that song stuck in your head)
I remember last year I wrote about how much the Cape means to me because I practically spent my summer’s growing up in Falmouth. Now the time I get to spend there gets shorter and shorter but my whole family (aunts, uncles, cousins, dogs and all) make an effort to have at least a small overlap. This year is no exception. Sure, that means some sleep on the floor or on a couch but I would sleep in a dog crate to be down the Cape.
I can’t get ahead of myself. I have a long work week ahead. This weekend was exhausting. I honestly just think it is because I haven’t had a full day off since May so I am hitting that burn out wall. And boy did I hit it hard. Emotional mess this weekend, always fun.
Marvelous is… my dog holding on. My mom is convinced Zoe is holding on to see my sister and I. My sister flew home this weekend and I will be home soon enough. Although she has lost a ton of weight and is just not herself, she is hanging on so I can see her one last time. I am so excited for a fluffy cuddle.
Marvelous is… some much needed texting conversations. I feel a little less crazy and a little more calm just having people that get it. So for those out there, thank you. So freaking needed this weekend.
Marvelous is… cousin overload. Saturday night I did get to see my cousin from Seattle who was here on business. It was a short sweet get together after work which ended in a pouring bike ride home but I love getting to see her. Then, down the Cape I get to see my baby twin cousins for the first time! I am the worst cousin, six months and I still have yet to see the now not so newborns.
Marvelous is… a body pump buddy! It is so funny because she hates running. Like hates it. She does the classes regularly but now have been joining me for all my body pump classes. I swear it just makes me push myself so much more, my shoulders are feeling it!
Marvelous is…music motivation. I don’t know how I ran almost four plus years without music. I now dig being able to listen to Kiss 108. I feel like it makes me listen to music I would not normally listen to on my own. Especially in the pop genre. Hey, we all need a little pop for our runs. And jesus, why do I freaking love this song?
Marvelous is.. a new show addiction. Not good, the last thing I need right now but man is Orange is the New Black kind of addicting. I blame you all for informing me of that one.
Won’t lie, this weekend was not exactly highlight worthy. I am beyond ready for the countdown. Five days.
Question: What is marvelous about your Monday?
