What a week.
To start, our family was brought down with what we thought was a simple cold that just wouldn’t end. My husband had several early morning meetings, which kickstarted our days earlier than usual. I had two social engagements this week (yay!) but as they were back to back, by the second night I was dragging my feet.
When I am feeling worn down, my emotions tend to run high and at times irrationally.
But it’s now technically the beginning of Easter weekend, and I am so happy and excited to have three days with my family, AND my sister is coming to visit for the week.
1. 150 Calories
I made it to the gym today for the first time since moving to Vancouver. I have been avoiding it, deciding that yoga and walking or running was more my thing, but realistically with the weather the way it is, it’s good to have another back up. So I am grateful for those 150 calories that I burned on the elliptical machine today, and all those post gym endorphins.
2. Being a Jennifer
I went out last night to a wonderful event called Thriving Moms, put on by the lovely Kate Muker. It was an evening of sharing, caring and thriving together, and I am so happy I went. I almost bailed 10 times before I got my courage up and headed over to network with other moms without any familiar faces, and it was so worth it. And I won a prize from Stella and Dot. Three Jennifers won door prizes last night, and I was one of them!
Thanks to the lovely folks at Bed on West Broadway, we are the proud owners of a new duvet cover and sheets. Since I was buying all the linens at once, we were able to get them all from the same dye lot, so the colour is uniform and just the perfect blue. And I picked up a couple of cushions in the “crashed computer” pattern that was an early Easter gift for my husband. He was tickled, so mission accomplished!
