TTT ~ The Sleep Edition

Today is Day # 487

Did I mention that I love the fact that it has rained since Monday?
No?  Well, I should have.
I have just been in one of those moods.
The ones when you just wanna' hole up an hide inside.
Since I've got the Big Girl job and a daily run habit, my hole'ing up had to wait until the evening but I've been loving it!  I have even done all my runs inside even though last night it wasn't raining that much.
Some days...or several days...you just want to enjoy being IN.
Isn't that why we have our homes to be in them?
I can tell I am already getting ready for winter hibernation.

It's time to get up of course he is sleeping now.

Speaking of sleeping a lot, I have been an epic fail on the morning run issue.  I just can't seem to get into a groove with the new back to school morning routine.  Either I am mega early for work or cutting it close.  I have yet to find that magic routine that allows me to get it all in and get to work on time.
And Little Bug Man is not helping with his late nights and unpredictable wake up time.  Because he doesn't care he can hap anywhere!

If not for me, do it for my kids.

Are you already feeling the craving for warm food and a cozy blanket too?

How have you been adjusting to the back to school routine? 
Did it effect your training?

Wake up and enter my giveaway!  Here


  1. I haven't been able to get up in the mornings at all. Means a lot of treadmill miles later in the day, but I suppose we do what we can :)

  2. I've already been thinking about Thanksgiving dinner. I'm not ashamed to admit it. If you ever tried my mother in law's stuffing, you'd be thinking about it too. :)

  3. yes back to school is changing it all up on me, right now i have one in and one starts next week but it is all good......

  4. It's still the height of summer here in FL!

  5. YES I want to open all the windows, let the cool breeze blow in and snuggle up with a blankie all day & night!

  6. The back to school routine is killing my running. Getting up before 5am is no joke. Today I was just so angry I was awake for at least 3/4 of my run. Yesterday I dozed off in class like 6 feet away from my teacher. I need to get it together. Your son is just adorable.

  7. Back to school routine is so hard to get adjusted to at our house. I just found out Ryan hasn't been eating breakfast...grr!!

    It has been so nice and cool here the past 4 days, highs only in the mid 60-70 (but suppose to get warm here this weekend again)....sure makes it easier to run later in the day for me!!

    LOVE LBM sleeping pic! :)

  8. We have had so much rain the past 4 days that I have wanted to stay in bed all day. I am so ready for fall. pumpkin pie, apple cider etc...can't wait!

  9. My training gets messed up more with shorter days than back to school - of course a lot of that is because i have one away at college and one in HS rather than little ones.
