A few random updates and thoughts from my week.....
-I am now Auntie Jenny! My brother and sister-in-law welcomed little baby Aurora into the world on Wednesday, August 7. I'm not one who normally gushes over babies......I know, I know - that's a terrible thing to confess......especially since I enthusiastically gush over puppies and kittens.....but I have to say......this baby is quite obviously the smartest, sweetest, prettiest, most perfect little girl in the world. And I'm certainly not biased at all!
-We took the fur babies to Yosemite on Sunday. Col Sew Fab and the "kids" LOVED it! Me.....not so much. I guess that's another terrible confession. I do not like national parks. I just don't get it. There's a lot of dirt and some trees and some rivers full of rocks. What's the big deal? Please forgive me if you LOVE national parks! Maybe next time we'll take a bottle of wine and some nice snacks and we can turn it into more of a "glamping" day trip!

-I have been feeling sooooo run down all week with a bit of a scratchy throat and a mild headache that just won't go away. All week I've felt like I'm about to come down with a terrible cold but I just continue to teeter on the edge....
-On a related note, I'm postponing my 18 mile run that I was supposed to do tomorrow until next weekend. I'm guessing that if I'm "teetering" on the edge of a cold and I go out and try to run 18 miles.....well.....I'm pretty sure I'll end up in "full sickness mode" and not just "teetering on the edge of sickness mode."
-I'm taking a MUCH needed Staycation next week! I was in desperate need of a Staycation right before I found out we were moving in April and I never got one. So you can just imagine how much I need one now! Just a few days to rest, relax and re-group - sounds heavenly doesn't it?! I was planning on doing my usual Thursday to Sunday Staycation....but I'm seriously tempted to throw in Wednesday too. The extra day will be kind of like the interest payment on the missed Staycation in April, right?! And the world is most likely not going to fall apart if I take an extra day off, right? Hmmm....what do you think?
-Emma is doing GREAT since her horrible health scare! She sends lots of thanks and licks and hugs to everyone for all of the moral support and happy thoughts and prayers that came her way!
-I've made NO progress on any sewing projects this week.....the whole "teetering on the edge of a cold" thing will really slow a girl down!
P.S. Sammy went to Yosemite too! I just didn't get her in any of the pics.
