Random Nain

 Come on, Nain....come up with something to write.  Something brilliant.  Mind-blowing. 
Nope.  Nothing.  Got nothing.  I'm sitting here on a Thursday night staring at an empty blog screen with a sore throat, drinking warm Silk from a "New Daddy" mug, listening to my child not sleep but rather babble to her monkey or God knows what in her crib.  I have to admit, I am very curious as to when I go check on her what position she will be in.  Should be interesting. 
This has been a week.  And it's over.  And tomorrow?  I run 6.2 miles.  I have to say I'm a little nervous about it, but it's just one step closer to the mini in May.  I've never run that far before in my life.  I've race walked 6.2 miles, but not run.  So think positive thoughts around 7:45 Eastern Standard Time in Indiana that I make it across that finish line!  And that I can keep up the training because it'll be a 15k (9 plus miles) in April. 
Okay, so anyway this entire post is quickly taking a turn for the "what the hell are we talking about, Nain?"  So I'm going to end this week with random.  Random, random, random!  Here we go:
So T has taken to looking up on YouTube videos of celebrities who have appeared on Sesame Street.  My favorite so far?  REM.  Or Johnny Cash, if you can imagine that.  In fact, here you go: 
Here is REM.....

And Johnny Cash:

 Look what has happened to us.  Look at what entertains us. 

I have a new favorite show.  Duck Dynasty.  God, I love that show.  "Nothing tells a woman that you are over her more than a dead deer in the back of your pick-up truck."  Actually hands down my favorite quote?  "Here's my take on high school reunions - if I haven't talked to you in 20 years, there is probably a reason."  Love that show!

Our daughter is SO close to walking it isn't even funny.  She's getting brave, walking along furniture, just holding on with one hand.  And I have a feeling that once she takes that first step, it's over.  She'll take off running.  Who knows, maybe she'll run races with Mommy and Daddy?

I'm still plugging along with my Lenten promise in doing the 40 day Love Dare.  Now have I actually successfully completed every dare?  No.  But my friend Jess and I are keeping each other accountable.  It is quite the learning process, and it definitely is a challenge.  An enlightening one, at that. 

So yeah...I'll be getting up at 5:45 a.m. to go run 6.2 miles in the cold.  So...yeah...that's happening.  After that, I think I should relax, what do you think? 

Sorry for the randomness of this post.  Eh, it is what it is.  You know you love it :-) 

Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
