Weekend’s are awesome for a million different reasons. This one’s awesome because I really, really, really need it after the helluva week I just had.
You know, as soon as I typed that I felt like a fraud because, really, who am I kidding?!?! I don’t have a stress in the world! …at least not compared to 99.9% of the world …my life’s about as easy-peasy, stress-free, and all gravy, baby, as it gets. I need to shush up.
We got these little samples of Cascadian Farm Organic Dark Chocolate Almond Granola in our Carlsbad Half Marathon goody bags. I’m gluten intolerant, Jared can’t digest nuts since he’s sans colon, and my mom loves this cereal. I mean, hello! Dark chocolate, almonds and granola!?!? Yum! When we got these samples, I called her up and said: “Mom! You have to come visit! We have cereal for you!”
I guess you could say that was the straw that broke the camel’s back because she’s gearing up for her first solo plane ride in forty–yes, forty years!!!! My amazing, wonderful, best-momma-in-the-world will be flying from Cincinnati to San Diego in t-minus 9 days, where she’ll spend the week enjoying the granola samples that warranted a $300+ flight across the country… doing laundry (hey, she likes it!), spoiling her grand-dog, dishing out endless hugs and cheering her curly-haired heart out as I take on LA! Oh, and we’ll most definitely be eating Yogurtland. Duh.
I’ve said before that my hubby’s my number one fan, but truthfully, that title should go to my mom… after all, she baked and birthed me on (what she calls) the best day of her life. True story. I am so, so, so excited and grateful she’ll be spectating at the LA Marathon in, ahem, 2 weeks.
Who needs to follow an 18-week marathon training plan when you have an awesome good luck charm like my momma cheering in the crowds?!
She can’t wait. I really can’t wait.
Neither can Sully…
