Happy New Year

 The New Year started and I was not quite ready. I threw up and was sick leading up to it, felt sick the day of, and have not quite recovered since. BLAH! Let me tell you teaching and coaching and feeling sick don't go well together. I set one New Years resolution and have already totally slacked off because I have been sick and tired. Which is an excuse but it is kind of valid.

Because I was sick I almost didn't do anything on New Years but then at the last minute decided what the heck. I am sure glad I went to Loralie's. It was a family get together, low key, but perfect for me. Got to see Andrew from a distance I didn't want to breathe on the poor kid.
I even made it to midnight which was shocking (while losing to Loralie at Ticket to Ride which was also shocking.)

 Since then I just have not had any energy. I teach, coach, walk/run my dog , and lay in the love sac. This week I finally played some sports and didn't feel too off but I still have a crazy cough.

Remember how I got a dog. I love her. She is super cute and cuddly and crazy. Definitely a puppy. We have figured out a routine that works well. She hasn't had an accident in my house this year (knock on wood). Loves to run, play fetch, and she loves the snow. I have run more this year than ever before in my life. We do 3-5 miles a day. Right now they are walk/run miles because she gets distracted and tired, I obviously never get tired:)

Tonight we did 5 miles in 5 inches of fresh snow while it was snowing. It was awesome. She loved it and I loved it. The snow just sticks to her crazy fur. So funny!
You can't just pull them off because they form around individual hairs.

I am hoping to get some rest this weekend and feel even better next week!

That poor dog had no idea what she was getting herself into. :)

Absolutely loved the picture of Amanda and Andrew- so cute. Mokie looks pretty exhausted and cold. (frozen legs) I also liked seeing you, Daniel and Caleb. Miss you guys and love you.

I loved seeing Sam too. You looked like you all had a good time. Dad and I were so laid back on New Years. We did make it past midnight though.
