Friday Five

1. My mom is visiting! We have been spending a lot of time surprising children (they didn't know), bird watching (they're still creepy, but she digs 'em), and hiking.

2. I ran 4 miles Tuesday, slow and easy, and it was like we had never been apart. Then gabby kicked the hell out of my shin (on accident, I think...), and mother effer it hurts.

3. Speaking of gabby, she had a procedure yesterday (lumbar puncture with chemo), that resulted in our first ever reaction following an LP. Scary. Bah.

4. Since I'm not running Holiday Half this weekend, or the 5k that I talked everyone else into running, I'm a little bitter. But I will be there Saturday to spectate the hell out of the 5k. Followed by a trip out to Joshua Tree for the weekend. Bring on the rock climbing!

5. Thank you, pinterest, for introducing me to avocado fries. They were delicious.


  1. Yay for running! I hope the "beat up" shin feels better soon :)

    Poor Gabby --- I'm keeping her in my thoughts!

    Have fun race spectating and at Joshua Tree! I've never been there but I want to.

    Um, avocado fries?!? Yes, please!

  2. How fun that your mom is visiting! enjoy!!

    Sorry about the shin and Gabby's reaction to the procedure... those things are scary. Hope she is ok now.
    Enjoy the spectating and Joshua Tree!!

    And what's an avocado fry? I need some!

  3. Poor little Gabby. Take care of yourself Momma.

    and LOVE Pinterest.

  4. Hope my fohawked twin is OK! I'll be thinking of her.
