I haven’t mentioned it much but I promise, you are going to sick of me talking about the trip I’m taking with the 8-year-old next week. For the past 2 days I’ve been writing posts to schedule while I’m gone — I even recorded a podcast! — since I’ll be completely offline for most of the week.
Let me say that again …
I’m going to be offline.
As in NO computer for DAYS!
This is some serious uncharted territory for me. I think I’m already going through withdrawal and it hasn’t even happened yet!
In addition to the whole offline aspect this trip is SERIOUSLY out of my comfort zone and I don’t think I really thought about that until now, three days before I leave. Well that’s a lie — the last time I thought about it was when I booked it WAAAY back in December — click here to see my original post and more about the trip on TheUnworldlyTravelers.
I can’t stress how much this trip means to me, even though I will be trying over the course of the next week. Please excuse this old sap while I take a quick trip down memory lane.
This is Ryan and I, 8 years ago, the week I joined Weight Watchers. This is when I had “the talk” with myself.
And here we are a few weeks ago before a 1-mile run.
I can barely write this without getting choked up. We have grown so much together. He has changed me in ways he may never understand and I hope I am positively establishing a foundation for him to live a healthy and happy life.
In 3 crazy days we are embarking on the first of (what WILL be) many Mother-Son (soon to be sons) trips.
- Tomorrow is my last day to finish up all client work and prewritten posts for my blogs.
- Saturday I’m actually registered for the ROC race in DC!
- Sunday we pack and and take a late flight out to Denver!
This trip has had me a bit distracted. I stopped wearing the Fitbit, I’m not food journaling and I haven’t been running much. I actually miss my #runstreak and hope to start a new one when I get back.
Speaking of getting back, I also signed up for a local CrossFit competition (I can’t remember if I told you) so I start training for that when I get home, too. It’s September 21, which kind of sounds like I have time, but we all know it will be here before we know it.
OK, I have got to get to bed. Lots of work tomorrow!
