"Rest" of week

Thursday- Rest
Friday- 7 miles

I decided to not bike at all yesterday, probably a good choice for me. I bod needs a little rest once in awhile. I will probably throw in some miles tomorrow, but we will see.

I went to get some running shoes tonight at the Running Place. They video you running and then pick shoes that are best for you pronation. I was pretty pronated, so I needed lots of stability. I guess as long as my feet don't hurt that is the real test in the end.

Just a funny story.

We were outside playing today and Sinclaire went behind the tree and then she started screaming. We thought she was really hurt. So I went over there and she wasn't hurt at all, she had just stepped in goose poop. I thought it was hilarious, she did not.

To exercise or not

Well, I had a goal this week that looked like this.

Monday- Bike 5 miles
Tuesday- Bike 6 miles
Wednesday- Bike 7 miles
Thursday- Bike 8 miles
Friday- Bike 9 miles

This is what it looks like so far.

Monday- Bike 5 miles
Tuesday- Bike 6 miles
Wednesday- Bike 20 miles

Yup 20 miles, so does that mean I don't have to go the next two days?
My mother-in-law has a friend that does 20 miles once a week and she invited me to go. It was killer. I had a mountain bike, they had road bikes; I am not a biker, they are; I have never ridden on the road in Indy, they have. But it was fun and I will probably go again sometime. They are going again today, but I am not sure I will be going. I think I need a bit of recovery time. It is a good thing I got a new seat for the bike, or I would be feeling way worse right now.

Signed the papers

It is finally over. Our house has sold and we are officially homeless. What a great feeling.

Monday is the day

We finally have a date and a time for closing. Now maybe it will happen and we will be able to finally "move on." It is set for Monday at 3 pm. I went to my sisters this week and had a great time. We swam in the pool and shopped for fabric. She also likes to quilt, so we both get excited about fabric stores.

Tiny went to the doctor last week, and he wasn't so tiny any more. At two months old this little porker weighed in at 13.5 lbs. I think Kit weighed that much at her year appt. I would look if all my stuff wasn't in a giant container at some storage place. We are just glad he is a healthy boy and he still loves to sleep.

Have I ever mentioned that I love the food network. It is a good thing I don't have cable, or that is all I would do all day. I have no self control when it comes to that. I feel as if I am rambling, so I think I will close this post.

packing day

We packed up most of our stuff yesterday. My mom came and played with the girls all day so I could box up the garage. What a great help that was. It was done by three when the missionaries came to help. So after they helped for an hour they had a bunch of boxes in the back. Then at six a few guys came over and by eight there were six guys to help. So by nine we had everything in the container that was ready. I am so glad that is done. I have boxed up most of the rest of the stuff that needs to go in tomorrow. I kitchen is the worst. I have stuff on the counter, and it has been there for days. I will be glad when it is over. We will be going to my sisters next week, and Sam will stay in Indy. Then we will join him on Friday. We are just waiting for the banks for the go ahead on the house we put an offer on, but I guess it doesn't mater, our closing was pushed back until next week sometime.

Last Friday the girls went to grandma's and I had the whole day to myself, well with Tiny. But that is like being by myself lots of times. I did do the dishes, but mostly I sewed and did things I wanted to do. The top picture is of a car seat carrier cover. My friend Esther had one and I thought it was great, so I made one for me and one for Julia who is due in September. I thought they turned out very cute.

The second two pictures are of Tiny's blanket, only two months after he was born. I thought that was pretty good. I love it. It is so simple. I love the back with the swirls and really everything about it. It was fun to piece and machine quilt. I can't wait to get more practice with machine quilting, I guess I will have to make more quilts if I am going to get practice.
