Sorry. I am just so sick of raining I might cry.
But actually I'm in a shockingly positive mood. Well, probably it's positive because tomorrow is my last day of school and then I have the rest of the week off before my summer job officially begins. I have big plans to hang out with friends from work tomorrow night, chill at the Cape with Eric for the rest of the week and then go to NYC on Saturday for a fabulous bachelorette party. So basically despite the rain, I am very happy right now.
Today was the end of the year concert, kindergarten slideshow and then "picnic"- of course this year the rain did not make for much of a picnic, but oh well. At least all of that is over, so all I have to get through is a half day with the kids and then cleaning up the room (which I am mostly going to make the kiddos do anyways).
As for triathlon training, things are up and down for me right now. As of this weekend I was thinking I should not do it at all. I was also going to stop swimming and biking for a bit to see if that helped my knee. Now today, I am really doing well with my PT exercises and I am just not ready to give up yet. I was thinking that there is no way I could bust out a 5k after swimming and biking without training, but now I am thinking that the worse thing that happens is I have to walk. Yes, I probably will then finish last but at this point I'd just be happy to be able to do it, even if I am last. I'm not saying I am definitely going to do the triathlon, but I am going to go with option #2 (I think it was #2...the one where I continue to train and see how things get a bit closer). Of course I say a bit closer like there is not only 3 weeks left! So that is where I stand right now. Thanks everyone for the advice on what you think I should do, I think the general consensus was to keep training, but be careful and I think that is ultimately what I am planning to do.
On one final note of excitement, last night we went to my parents house for Father's Day and my mom's birthday (which is tomorrow). I forgot that we hadn't really gotten around to celebrating my birthday because of my brother's graduation and an overall crazy month of June. My mom surprised me with a very KELLY cake.
As we all know I have lots of annoying dietary restrictions and one of them is I cannot really eat cake. Sure I have a bite here and there, but if I eat a whole piece of cake I feel very sick after. One thing I can eat is Edy's 1/2 the fat ice cream. So my mom found an Edy's ice cream called "Take the Cake" and molded it into a cake shape. We found these awesome candles at Christmas Tree Shop on Memorial Day weekend but I actually thought I had the one that said my name- apparently not though because it was sitting on top of my awesome cake. I ate almost the whole thing and it was absolutely amazing (don't worry, there was a normal cake for everyone else).
I leave you with... "People are like stained glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is light from within." I know it's a bit dramatic, but I need some light from within right now, because there certainly is not any outside. I hope it's sunny and beautiful where you are! (and also, can you tell me where you are so I can get there?)
