forget sunday - today is a day of rest!

No running! That's right - I typed it! NO RUNNING ALLOWED!!! My body does not like me today and rightfully so. I pushed really hard last night (and pushed an entire group of people too...muahahhahahah). I pretty much lead the group last night for 3/4 of the run with another girl and we ended up shaving off 5 minutes from our regular time. Whoopsie :P But now my back is sore. Thank God it's a day off. and TGIF!!!! My weeks just seem to be getting longer with Li away... but today I'm really looking forward to having a family dinner and seeing my nieces, my brothers (well at least one, hopefully two, not three as John is off to Ottawa), at least 1 sister-in-law and parents. I love spending time with my family and the more of them that are there, the more laughs we have! ...and I'll enjoy the "all-you-can-eat" and not stress about it like I have before in the past because it's not about me, it's my brother's birthday :)

Having a family like that is such a blessing and the older we get, the more we appreciate it. That's so great.
