Feet Up, TV On, Taking the Night Off!

Today start at 5am...not by the sound of sweet Baby C who is 5 months old TOMORROW or a bad dream belonging to Mini K, but my alarms (yes I set two of them!)

I had a date with a bridge and I couldn't be late. Today I ran the inaugural Wilson Bridge Half Marathon...not my first, but my first since having kids and you know time was only 12 minutes slower than my last one...considering I haven't been able to get a run in longer than 5 miles leading up to this race I am pretty pleased.

But, the race ended and duty called...Mini K had her first lacrosse practice today followed up by a car picnic (my fancy way of saying we ate in the car!) and a skating lesson. We are home now, lunches and backpacks are packed, kids are asleep and tonight I am putting my feet up, drinking my new favorite mocktail: the diet cherry limeade packet from Target, and watching Mad Men.

I know I have products to load, lists to make, plans to make, but tonight I am okay admitting:

Or I should tonight I am choosing not to try at all...

You understand I hope!
