Better together…

I’m happy to say I’ve not left my family in quite sometime. That last time the wife and I “got away” from the kids was for a family wedding we attended just a couple of weeks after K(2) was born. Even that night we spent the evening giving other children at the wedding the evil eye because of course we missed our children. 

My favorite: What’s the most time you’ve ever spent apart from your favorite person? Tell us about it.

I’ve left my wife side for long, long periods of time. I would never get this post finished though if I got into trying to explain how crappy that time was. So instead I’ll talk about how life is now.

Just like I haven’t left my children’s side I haven’t really been apart from my wife for very long. Even my longest of runs is less than 4 hours. I’ve gone to the bar occasionally but now I only spend a couple of hours there. I think maybe that’s why we’ve grown closer together.


zerotohero update: I really do like my current theme. It was the last one I settled on only because I’d tried everything before it. Only thing that bugs me about his one is that it keeps my tag line hidden.



A Case Of The Mondays A Day Late.

I can’t really explain how we stayed up until we welcome the next day last night. I do know why though: we were still celebrating as my brother in law very graciously came to toast his sister with a very delicious double chocalte cake. The few minutes we were certain he’d stay quickly but enjoyably turned into hours.

The alarm went off and it meant Griselda was on her way back to work after about a week and a half off. Kalel though still has another week off and so we went to drop her off together. The sparse traffic was a reminder that although the holiday(s) are over the world is only slowly getting back to life.

Kalel had stayed up too, so when we got back home. I had time to fit in my work out as he finished off his “nap”. After I showered I threw together some breakfast. He then worked on his holiday homework packet. Then we were off to the movies to watch “Puss In Boots”. If he’s off on Tuesday it usually means movie day because you can’t beat $1.50 a show.

We then headed to the park because after leaving the theatre you couldn’t help to really fell lucky to be outside for this beautiful weather. It had been a while since he went to the park and he really does come alive when out doors. It’s like he truly feels free. I had a second run work out but he’s the one to ran and role played and just wore himself out.

It was overall a great day, yet as walked by strangers and they walked past me I could tell all the euphoria from the holidays is slowly leaving our consciousness. I guess that’s sign enough to get rid of the tree. On the to-do list for tomorow for sure.

What else is on the to-do list: a very daunting Spartan WOD that I received today via email. Even as I read I can’t help but think about how late it already is. Is there such a thing as an alarm to go to bed.I wouldn’t want to hit the snooze on that. I only wish I could sleep like that.
