You Oughta Be in Pictures

I was impressed with myself this morning - I managed to get up early, run 7 miles, shower, eat breakfast, get the boys dressed and fed - all before 7:00 a.m. so I could bring G to the eye doctor for his mandated appointment (he's starting at a new school this fall). I felt like a movie mom - I even dressed the part in a smart shift dress, flats, lightweight sweater - with my child nicely turned out in matching clothes and mini backpack. And he was reasonably well behaved! We should have taken photos because I'm not sure we'll ever see such coordination of schedule or attire again.


  1. Nice job! I love how accomplished I feel when I run before work/errands!

  2. Wow. I'm glad you wrote about this! For one, to know that things like this are possible (what time did you wake up?!?!) and for two... to remind yourself when everything feels like it's falling apart (or, wait... maybe that's just my life). Good job!!!

    1. That's exactly why I wrote about it!

      And yes, I got up at 4:30 to do it. (That's not unusual, actually, what impressed me was managing to get G out the door at 7:00 without a meltdown. He's growing up!)
