taking a little tumblr break. catch y’all on the flip side.
I don’t feel good. At all. Think I’m probably getting sick and will be heading home after babysitting. Try not to be jealous. Maybe one day soon I’ll post something fun.

THIS. So much this. I cannot wait to create an incredible 2012.
AAA won’t help.
OnStar won’t help.
1-800-DADDY is hopefully coming to the rescue.
It’s been quite a year and one that I am not too terribly disappointed to put behind me. I’m happy to report that Christmas 2011 was fantastic for both Charlie and I as my momma spoiled us both just short of rotten! In the mix (for me) was new Chanel make up, a really cute Marc Jacobs iPad case, and a replacement David Yurman bracelet for the one I lost this summer. Charles was quite thrilled with two cans of fresh tennis balls and a marrow bone from the butcher, like most men, he’s easy to please.
Night nursing for an infant has really been taking it out of me and it’s a rather odd thing to have your days and nights wholly flip flopped Mon - Thurs then try to readjust every weekend. Today, for example, I slept from 8am to 5:45pm before beginning my “day.” I’ve found that more than anything the thing that is keeping me balanced is my nightly trips to the gym before work. I’m hoping that this cold rainy stuff we’ve got going on finishes off soon so that I can resume running outside…
Which brings me to a VERY exciting announcement. I’ve re-registered for a full marathon (YAY!) and officially begin training just after the first of the year. The race that I have chosen is the (newly renamed) St. Jude Country Music Marathon in Nashville, TN this April. Beyond having an official race date, hotel reservations, and a friend to join me the most exciting part is that I will be participating as a St. Jude Hero. As a Hero I will be working over the coming months to raise over $1400 to fun research, patient care, and more at St. Jude. Having run the St. Jude Memphis 1/2 marathon and seen all of those kiddos’ faces it was an easy decision for me and I readily accept the challenge of both the fundraising and training.
