Right now...

For some reason, I'm having major focus issues these days.  Focus issues = can't concentrate on blog posts.  I've spent the majority of my "free" time these past three days cramming in as many CPE credits as humanly possible.  I now only need 27 more credits in order to renew my CPA license.  I need to have that wrapped up by June 1st as I most definitely will not have any time after that.  How is Memorial Day weekend next week?  Things just feel weird right now.  Abigail's birthday will be here soon and I think it all feels different this year because I'm distracted.

Rich and I opted to not run that 5K this weekend.  I'm sure I could have run the 3.1 miles (although it wouldn't have been the wisest decision) but because we hadn't trained for it, we didn't really see the point.  In addition and more importantly, the CF (cystic fibrosis) walk was the same day and logistically speaking, it would have been extremely difficult to do both.  It was nice to spend a few hours with family and to honor Rich's niece, who passed away from complications related to CF when she was 13 years old.            

As for my running, I ran one mile on Friday as a test run.  My leg felt fine and remained that way so I decided to run another mile today.  The area of my leg that was messed up doesn't feel 100% back to normal but well enough to run.  I've been wearing compression socks too and I'm a believer.  Those things are awesome.

We hosted a big, group play date this weekend for five of the girls' school friends.  I can now say that I survived eight six years old for two hours.  They were actually pretty good.  Rich and I are getting to know the other parents and thankfully, our girls have gravitated toward good kids with good parents.

I'm working on a photography post that's sort of an extension of my lens discussion post.  I hope to have that up in the next day or two.

I'm feeling fragmented (or something), too. I'm hoping for a good start to the week to get back in the groove.

Would love to see pictures from your play date...I'll bet that was fun! I understand you might not be able to post those, but I can only imagine they're cute.

Looking forward to your lens post!

Hi Mandy - I'm looking forward to the long weekend. Hopefully that will help.

I did take some pictures of the girls with their friends and they are cute and funny but I wouldn't feel right posting w/out permission. You know how it goes.
