7 Quick Takes - I'M STILL ALIVE edition

1. I'm still here! I'm sorry! I've been busy!

2. I was at my parents' house last week, which is a black hole of communication and technology. There is no internet. There is no cell phone reception. There is no cable. They don't even have a land line phone. It was frustrating, to say the least. But hey! I read a lot!

3. I know you've all been wondering how my running is going. I'm on Week 7 of my 10K training. I'm still really, really, really, really slow. But I keep going! I've just about convinced myself that I'm going to do the half marathon in November, even if I have to walk half of it.

4. Alex and I went to the gym together last night. We haven't done that yet because we are both weenies when it comes to leaving Jack at the child care center. I got stuck with the dirty job of actually LEAVING him there and he was none too pleased, but he wasn't crying, so we bolted. You know where this is going right? Guess whose workout was cut short due to a crying child? But! He totally only wanted me and refused to go to Alex. Favored parent status confirmed!

5. We also got Jack's hair cut on Wednesday, which also happened to be my 30th birthday. I have a post started on the awesomeness of my birthday and hopefully I'll get to finish it this weekend. The hair cut part? Well...not so awesome. It deserves a post of its own, but you have been warned! Weepy, my baby is all grown up post is in queue.

6. You'd think I'd be OVERFLOWING with things to talk about since I haven't blogged in a month. You'd be wrong.

7. I ran into a die hard Cubs fan today at Wal-Mart. (I was wearing my (new!) Cubs shirt. It's not like he just walked up to me and asked if I was a Cubs fan.) Y'all, Cubs fans are EVERYWHERE. And they are all the same. They are all so hopeful that their team is going to get to the World Series someday. Bless their little hearts.

So proud of your running. And just for support, I think I walked more than half of the half :-)
