You know how when you're all worried about something that you really have no control over and can't do anything about? Do you all do that?
Well...okay, I do.
You know I've mentioned a few times about Dwija and her fighter-baby. Well, Cari at Clan Donalson has set up a great way to DO SOMETHING, when really, you have no way of DOING anything else, but it makes you feel good to just DO SOMETHING!
Looks like the response has been terrific so far and Cari is leaving the donate button up through Sunday. So if you're interested in helping out with Dwija's laundry room, check it out!

Today is the first time since I've been a manager at my current employer (5+ years) that I have an associate leaving the company. I'm happy for her because she's worked hard the past couple of years to gain an associate's degree and has obtained employment in her new field. I'm sad because she's an invaluable employee and done a fantastic job acclimating me to the position I took on last fall. We're having a party to celebrate her today. Just because.

33.6 Miles, that is how many I have run in June. I'm planning for maybe 3 tonight (before or after Crossfit and then a long run tomorrow. But don't be surprised if all I really do is a long run tomorrow. I am so much more tired and sore when doing CF every day, but I love it. I will work through it to go long tomorrow, I have to. I really need to get to 7 or 8 miles. I am trying to build up so 13.1 on August 17 will be doable. To be honest, I think it's doable no matter what...but the more I build up my mileage, the less sore I will be afterward!

Do you think it's odd that I actually admire people who are able to be open to conceiving a baby after a loss? The thought of it just makes me shudder right now. Maybe it's because of my age and the timing in my life of my loss? Perhaps it is because I had already begun to think Gregory would be my last go-round with this child-bearing thing because I turn 40 later this year. But, honestly, I am deathly afraid of having the same thing happen should we be blessed with another baby. I can't stand the thought of reopening the gravesite for a sibling to share the space with Gregory. Is it okay to talk about such things? Should I just shut up about it?
