Today

Some random thoughts:

Today...

...I ran a mile for the first time in a LONG time, and even though my lungs and knees hurt and the flab was a-flabbing, I was happy I didn't stop. (Not to mention I had two kiddos in a running stroller with me...yikes.)

...Grandma died two years ago. It really feels like yesterday when I think about her being here.

...my daughter said to me, "Mama, I like your chubby legs." Hmmm...was that a blow to the 'ol self-esteem, or was that a two year old simply giving me a compliment?

...my son and I are still dealing with thrush. Grrr.

...I enjoy using cloth diapers on my boy. Thanks, small group ladies, for opening the door to this new world of thought. Less trash to haul out on Wednesday nights, less diapers sitting in a landfill for seven years, and saving money in the end: sounds good to me!

Aw, sorry to hear about the thrush - I hope you guys feel better soon! And kudos to you on strapping those running shoes back on! I could barely wheeze around the block after I had Isa,so I bet you will be running mini-marathons in no time, LOL. And on another note, cloth diapers sure have gotten better...very cool...

You're using cloth diapers?!? You HAVE to tell me more about that. My friend Megan and I were just discussing this the other night. :)

That's a beautiful picture of you and Grandma Markey. I can't believe it's been two years...

Miss you lots! Hugs and kisses to all.

I would love to hear which cloth diaper wins your approval as the best one????!!!! I am thinking all in ones and I think that is what you posted!
