You know, the one where we told 2010 that we were done with sick kids, dead dryers, rodents, and other aggravations. We ended the year with all of us mostly healthy (some lingering coughs and an occasional twinge in my ankle), a new dryer, and a plan for 2011.
Guess we should have told 2011 our plan. Jones woke up this morning with pink eye. Really?!? The kid’s been out of school for 1.5 weeks and now might not get to go back tomorrow because of his eye? Crap!
On the bright side, I did a four mile run outside today. I was slow (for me), but I used my garmin to make myself stay that way and I found if I got going a little too fast, my achilles let me know too. So, looks like the plan for now is slow running. Hopefully I’ll continue to be able to run more miles as long as I take it slow.
I’ve been working on my 2011 goals, but have been to busy actually doing them to sit down and write them. A little preview – I’m writing my first paid! training plan, I’m getting my kids moving, and I haven’t had ANY added sugar today.
Hope 2011 is being nicer to you so far!

pink eye is the worst! good luck.
Pink eye sucks! Poor kid!
I remember the good ol days when I was nursing and could just put some milk in the eyes and all would be well. They should have an over the counter pink eye med so you don't have to go to the doctor so they can tell you what you already know. Hang in there mama. I had some mishaps too to start off the year. Oi.
pink eye spreads like wild fire.btw, my husband ran in his vibrams today and it made me think of you.
Pink eye stinks!Yea for more pain-free running! Hope 2011 reads that memo fast!
Ugh! It sounds like our house. The kids have been out of school for almost 2 weeks and now they are getting sick. Nice job on the 4 mile run!
wooot to getting paid…boo to sickness, hope the little man gets well quickly
Sorry to hear about the rough start! I hope things improve… SOON. Happy New Year!!!
ooh, sorry about the sick kid! Hopefully it'll clear up soon and you'll all be healthy for a while!Glad you were able to get out for a run and you kept yourself in check not to overdo it!Happy New Year!
Boo to pink eye! I've got my fingers crossed that this is not a sign of the year to come.Paid writing gig, running 4 miles, and no added sugar? Awesome!!
My family was sick with some bug over the holidays and as mom and caregiver I sucked it up until today. I called off work and LBM and I stayed home. Why did I think I could get rest with LBM at home too?? 2011 doesn't know how to read!It will improve.
