I had some really amazing hard working intentions for when I got home from work tonight. I was thinking I would do some laundry, vacuum, maybe do a quick workout, and then clean out my kitchen cupboards. Instead I've lounged, lazed, read, had dinner, and lounged some more. I guess there's still time to pick up one or two of those things (the workout seems a good one) but after talking to a bunch of new- and seasoned-moms am enjoying not doing much, not having to do much.

The Three Kings Day Party this year was yet another success. SS the SS helped with the cooking again and save a few people just about everyone I really-like (new friends) or definitely-love (old ones) in DC was here. I contributed mulled wine, several kinds of cookies, a red velvet cake (I really can't bake a King Cake, that's my compromise), sparkling cider, lemonade, and almost embarrassingly cheap beer. My lovely guests brought homemade truffles, pigs in a blanket, dip, crudités, extra wine, and I don't even know what else - the joint was so crowded with awesome interesting cool people I could barely see right in front of me.

And the bestest part? Jen and Steve brought their adorable adorable baby girls Anna and Charlotte. The girls are so cute its almost wrong. It felt good to have kids here at the party - after being here in DC so long it sometimes feels like nothing changes but seeing them it was a welcome reminder that they do.

Also in the good-news category: am back on my training schedule again. Danielle, Coreen and I are doing a Half Marathon in Alexandria in May (instead of one in New Orleans in February) - more time to get up to speed but really after two weeks off for Christmas and New Years its more time to get back on the wagon. I find myself wanting to run the way I could a few weeks ago but not quite being up to it. Grrrrrrr.

But I'm better than on track for training and should be good by race time. And we've been promised a very active cheering section with fun-suitable-for-exhausted-runners when we're done. All good!

a m. just a m

Doing (life and related tasks): Work. Getting back into running. Recovering from hosting my Three Kings Day party on Sunday.

Doing (crafty stuff): Need to get on that. Really!

Wanting: Someone to take all the extra cookies out of my house!

Anticipating: Mmmmmm- some time with my Netflix tonight!
