I can’t believe it’s been a week since I was in Vegas. RNR Vegas always seems to come and go in a flash. While I would certainly love to hit rewind on the whole weekend and do it over again, I am looking forward to the next two months.

Maybe that means I’m at a good place in life – I can look back and feel happy and look forward and feel happy. I haven’t always been able to say that.

After my ridiculous {because there is no other word to describe it} drama that I was cryptic about in my last post {trust me I’m doing you a favor sparing you the details}, I can say I’m moving forward. Nothing is resolved and honestly I’m not sure things will ever be resolved. It is going to be one of those move on type of things.

Moving forward means that for the first time in my adult life I’m going to be home, as in my physical house for Thanksgiving. Chloe is 9 years old and I’ve spent her entire life running around on every single holiday trying to make everyone else happy. In the process, no one was really truly happy because we were always leaving one place to run to another {such is life when you are married + a child of divorce}. I’m excited to start traditions of our own {and really it’s beyond time for us to make our own}.

We are all REALLY sad that Gary won’t be here with us this week. I think about him more than I ever did when he was alive. It makes me appreciate my close friends and family more – you literally never know when someone will leave you. I still feel like he was stolen from us so I’m clearly not through the grieving process. I certainly loved him and appreciated him before he left this earth, but now I feel like we are constantly talking about him, or remembering good times with him. We really don’t want our kids, especially Colton, to ever forget him – so we will keep on talking about him and smiling about the memories and silly times.

Christmas 2014

Sue {my mother in law} is coming over on Thanksgiving and we are looking forward to food, wine, football, and not running around. Maybe I’ll even get to run that morning. 😉

If you want to hop over to my instagram page I’m giving away a pair of Yurbuds Wireless Headphones and a Garmin Forerunner 225 – entering takes less than a minute and who couldn’t use a new Garmin 😉

This morning’s workout was the strength part of Jillian’s One Week Shred. It’s my favorite DVD of hers to jump start me after a week of overindulgence. I ran 6 miles after I dropped Colton off at pre-school. I’ve decided to part ways with the coach I was using, so I’m in a limbo state again of what I want to do running/racing wise.

Got Colton’s school pictures back today. Be still my heart. I love this kid so freaking much.

Feeling extra cheesy thankful today for no reason in particular.

Hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving week!
