First topic:So Christmas went well, although, Santa brought an Xbox Kinect, and while I think it’s a pretty cool system, I don’t like the attitude that it creates in my children. Samuel in particular gets way too intense and wants to play it all the time and gets mad at Levi when he doesn’t want to play the same game. I’m pretty much laying down the hammer on that one, though, because no son of mine is going to act like he’s been acting over a game or anything else.
Next topic:So on the day of my half-marathon, I hurt my ankle bone by hitting it with my other foot and bruising it. So now I can’t run on it for another few weeks, which I’m pretty bummed about (but glad it’s not a stress fracture). I can still do elliptical or bike, but I can’t jog. So that means that I won’t be doing the full marathon in February like I had hoped.
SOOOO, originally I was going to get my tummy tuck in March (I can see my mother-in-law cringing right now because she thinks I share too much – haha – love you, Ann), after my marathon in late February. But now that I’m not going to be trained in time because of my ankle, we figured that January was the best time to do the surgery since I wouldn’t be training. Then I could start training again in late February. Makes perfect sense, right?
So about this tummy tuck…I can’t decide if I’m going to show before and after pictures (more cringing). I know that I don’t have to justify my decision to anyone (don’t make me post my pregnancy pictures again), so that’s not the reason I’d be doing it. I just kind of think it’s cool. I mean, seriously, my stomach looks like a deflated balloon, and someone is going to make it not look like that anymore. That’s pretty freaking cool to me. I’ll take the pictures and then decide after the surgery if I’ll post them or not.
Next topic:We leave for Prague on Saturday, and I’m super excited! I’m going to have tons of alone time in a foreign country, just me and my camera. I’m a little nervous about finding my way around and not getting my camera stolen and stuff like that, but I’m way excited. I’ve done a ton of reading on it, so I think I’m ready and know what to expect, but I’m probably wrong. I’m going to miss the boys like crazy, but it’s so reassuring to know they’ll be well taken care of and having fun. I’ll surely be posting while I’m over there, so stay tuned for Prague photos!
Okay, I think I’ll try to get some sleep now, although I still don’t feel sleepy.
ETA: Michael isn't letting me post before and after pics. Haha. It's probably for the best.
