Hi mommas and soon-to-be-mommas, furbabies-mommas and (proud) aunties (like me!). I hope you had a wonderful Mother’s Day weekend. Our weekend was pretty ‘motherless’ this year. As so often, I didn’t get to see my Mom and we also didn’t see J’s Mom, but I bought (myself – haha!) some tulips in honor of all the mommas out there that I adore and appreciate (most of all my Mom and my sister, who’s a fantastic mom to my two love-to-the-moon-and-back special munchkins!).
We had a pretty low-key weekend, ran some errands on Friday (and it was ‘laundry day’!) and I ran two (for me) longer runs on Friday and Sunday. I am scratching the 1-hour run time now and I am so amazed at myself for being able to build up my endurance. I wouldn’t have thought this possible only a couple of months ago!
I also made a quick trip to Ikea on Saturday morning. I hadn’t been to Ikea in ages, but since I mentioned that I am planning to overhaul our apartment in lieu of moving (for now!), I had to a) get some inspiration (I wrote down so many things I’d like to get. Ridiculous!) and b) pick up a few items already. I mean, to be honest, I can always find something to take home at Ikea!
Oh, and I finished “To Kill A Mockingbird” by Harper Lee for the Postal Booklcub! It was a fantastic book and definitely a book everyone should read once in their lifetime. I know this book is a classic to read in school, but I am glad I was able to enjoy it outside of academic context. I honestly kind of hated dissecting books in school, because you were supposed to “find” certain hidden meanings and I think that more often than not books can be interpreted in so many different ways. This one definitely had a great message (especially considering the time during which it was written!). I highly recommend you read it!
Other good things this weekend:
