Some Days Are Gold

Daniel spend the night last night and fell asleep beside me before we could even do our normal talks about all the girls he has a crush on this week.

Firetrucks woke us both up at about 3am at the apartment building across the street. But we quickly went back to sleep. I slept like a baby.

We were back up for breakfast and headed to Forest Park. We explored, went to old secret places, fed ducks, found cool clam shells, skipped rocks, pretended we had superpowers….basically saved St. Louis from zombies.


Daniel said something today that made me stop and smile…and think. He was climbing high up on a monument so he could get a better look at the city.

Me: Daniel, what if you fall?

Daniel: What if I don’t?

We should all live our lives with that simple statement in mind…from the mouth and mind of a 7 year old. 🙂

Allison and Sadie joined us at Brasserie for brunch. James worked today. After a delicious, healthy and leisurely brunch, we went to the zoo for the rest of the day.

This day made my heart happy….♥♥♥♥

The weather could not have been more perfect. It was 65-70 and sunny all day. And all the animals at the zoo were out and about for a change!

We went to the petting zoo where Sadie chased the goats trying to brush them. She had her first carousel ride.


My body felt good. I was relaxed. I had tons of energy. I smiled and laughed a lot. I enjoyed my kiddies and Allison.


It was a perfect day. I could write the rest of the night and not express how good this day was.


Allison and the kids dropped me off at my apartment. I even ran half a mile to our local grocery and shopped for dinner tonight and breakfast in the morning.

Even though Monday is a rest day, I think I will try to get a run in early in the morning. My running schedule is Tuesday – 4miles, Wednesday – 6 miles, Thursday – 3, Saturday 8.

My work (kaizen leader) training starts tomorrow afternoon 1-5pm about 15 miles away from my apartment. The rest of the week will be 8-5 T, W, Th and Grandparents day at Daniel’s school on Friday.

If I could choose one day to end my life on, it would be today.
