Friday Round-Up

On this Friday Round-Up, I am tired. I just finished a 10 mile run, which is a first for me! I am excited, sore, proud and hurting, but my mixed emotions and aching body leave me exactly where I want to be: on my way to running a ½ marathon before I get pregnant. Heck, while I’m at it I might throw in finishing a full marathon before I’m waddling then swaddling.

You might have noticed that I have not mentioned my own kids in any of my posts. This is because my children right now are furry beings: a Great Dane and two cats. Now these kids can be almost as trying, as loving and as beautiful as human children (to which any parent of a furry child can attest!), but there’s a certain je ne sais quoi missing in stories about one’s pets that is apparent in parent stories (really, how many people truly want to hear my numerous Great Dane puppy stories?).
