You're Perfection

I updated the girls' phones (our old phones – used for music and games…not calling!) and found these two photos. 1) I can tell how much they love their little Clover 2) I'm thrilled that Eleanor spelled "you're" correctly!

A few of the podcasts I listen to on a regular basis
I spend 6-8 hours a day at my desk. To pass the time while I work, I often listen to audiobooks, NPR radio or podcasts. I discovered the genius of podcasting three or four years ago. NPR's This American Life and Another Mother Runner Radio have always been favorites. Back in September, This American Life previewed the upcoming podcast Serial. I was hooked. Soon, I turned Amy onto the show.

Serial is about the 1999 Baltimore murder of a young girl named Hae Min Lee. Sarah Koenig (a former This American Life producer) tells the story in a one-hour podcast that's released each Thursday. The slow progression of this true tale makes me feel as though I'm listening to a radio story from the 1930's. If you want to listen to something that is extremely interesting, sometimes funny, and completely enthralling, I highly recommend Serial.

I'm chomping at the bit for Thursday's episode!

Monday miles

Saturday, Amy and I ran the Dirty Duel 6K. We started at the same time, ended at the same time, yet Amy beat me in placement. (We were 18 and 19.) This makes me laugh. Amy is far more competitive than I am, and faster for sure. It's as if the universe knows that she "should" be ahead of me, even when we run together. It makes me smile!

Last week: 14
This year: 790

So sweet.

Josie's been getting additional spelling words each week. Kyle and I laughed when we saw the words that her teacher pulled from her journal: "Neighbors" and "over"

Hmm…I wonder what she wrote about? :)

Not much for miles this week. 
Work was busy, Josie was sick, then it was my turn. 
Better now. Here's to a new week!
