not much to report today, other than i successfully completed another day of the whole30. two days may not seem like much, but thinking about and evaluating every single thing that passes my lips makes each day feel a little bit longer.
i didn’t do crossfit tonight. nor did i make a fancy dinner.
but i did attend a random tuesday afternoon (4pm to be exact) baby shower.
most of the attendees are firefighters, nurses, or something with similar ‘odd’ schedule. in fact, i think G and i were the only ones with Mon thru Fri 9-5 jobs. [and funny they say NINE to five because it’s usually more like SEVEN-THIRTY to five for this chica!!]
anyways, these dear friends of ours have been trying for years to grow their family. when having their own wasn’t an option, they went into the foster/adoption cycle. that can be so long and cumbersome. i’m grateful for people with great big hearts like theirs. they now have a 10 month old foster son (soon to head back to birth mom) and 1 month old daughter (adopted as soon as she was born).
in attendance 9 adults, 5 children, and 1 dog. it was loud. it was fun.
i don’t know if it’s the diet, poor sleep, or what but i am exhausted. i should have had more fun tonight, but instead i keep thinking about my bed. and so, this is where i blog. 841pm and i’m ready to sleep.
btw – i still don’t have my christmas decorations up at home. and this is the extent of my decorations in the office. an old co-worker got us all usb powered lights from big lots. best random office gift ever.
