The weekends over and I didn’t run

Going into this weekend I had planned on going for a 5k run, sadly that did not happen. But a lot of other great stuff did!

First off we had a visit from my sister…. a.k.a. Auntie Laura. We played with every toy in our house, went for a walk to the playground watched Lilly run the length of the soccer field, and we both climbed on the playground equipment and had a lot of fun. My a$$ even fit into the kiddie slide so I didn’t get stuck 🙂 We had lots of laughs.

Then three young girls about 10-12 years old, showed up in their pajama’s. Note to self: never let daughters wear pajamas as everyday clothing unless it’s pajama day at school. I figured they went to the school attached to the playground since they were very familiar with the new upgrades to the previous broken equipment. As Lilly and I were playing I heard all of a sudden ….“This slide SUCKS”!

My first thought was “oh man I hope Lilly doesn’t say that and then won’t play on it”.

My second thought was “now I understand why my Mother didn’t like us saying the word “SUCK”.


As I mentioned, I wanted to go for a long run (5k for me these days) but chatting with my sister took over once the girls were asleep and time slipped away from me.  I was pretty bummed out Sunday when I realised I should have taken the opportunity to get out of the house for a run while I could (my husband’s been away a week). Oh well, you snooze you loose.


We also hit up a really cool craft fair called East Coast Momma Collective! It’s all Mama’s who make some pretty cool things:

We bought some Halloween and Thanksgiving barettes for Lilly. Then we hit up Open Farm Day (in Nova Scotia) at a local market/farm. They had lots of little games for the kiddies and best of all a bouncy castle.

Even though I didn’t get my run in on Saturday I had a nice visit with my sister and managed T25 (day 3) workout Sunday night.

What did you do this weekend?

Do you support other mama’s creative passions?

  1. I was amazed when we first had our kids how suddenly everything that my mother had scolded me for suddenly made sense. As a kid you expect it to be different, but as a parent, suddenly it’s not ok for your kids to say suck. Glad you got so much family time in!
