Happy Friday! Welcome to this week’s Weekly Wrap-Up. Tomorrow is a huge, exciting milestone for me: I’ll be running in my first half-marathon! Two years and 88 pounds ago, I never, ever dreamed I would become a runner. No way did I ever think I could run over 13 miles. Now, I can’t wait! I’m so excited to get out there and do this thing. Who knows? Maybe next year it will be a full marathon. Maybe.
On the school front, it’s been a pretty mundane week. The most exciting thing we did was make fudge for science to represent igneous rocks. The kids really enjoyed it and it was some yummy fudge. Now, I just need to get it out of my house! Yummy fudge doesn’t go well with continued weight loss.
Yesterday I made a birthday cake for my nephew. I’m not especially creative when it comes to stuff like that, but I got the idea to make him a “dirt” cake complete with work trucks and orange traffic cones. I thought it turned out pretty cute and he was thrilled. Of course, I think he liked the monster truck toys that we gave him better than the cake.
