June’s Ultimate Coffee Date

The Ultimate Coffee Date

Busy morning ahead, but before I get going I’m making a little time to join with one of my favorite link-ups, The Ultimate Coffee Date. Thanks to Coco, Lynda and Deborah, as always, for hosting! Be sure to check out the link-up and see what the other ladies are dishing about.

If we were having coffee together, I’d tell you that I’m in the homestretch on all of the school projects/concerts/field trips, etc. After May Madness, things are starting to wind down a bit. I did spend yesterday in my youngest son’s class room helping out with a project – it was a sea of glue sticks, construction paper and stickers, but I survived and made my kiddo happy so it was all worth it.

If we were having coffee together, I’d tell you that I cannot believe my oldest son is leaving for overnight camp in just a few weeks! He’s really excited and I’m excited for him…but I’m going to miss him terribly!

If we were having coffee together, I’d tell you that returning to running after a short hiatus is hard…harder than I thought it would be. Some days I feel like I’m starting from scratch and I’m working on not being too hard on myself.

If we were having coffee together, I’d tell you that I survived my 3-day refresh, and did lose a few pounds. I’ve got a lot of thoughts to share on the whole thing, but my boys are waiting and lacrosse calls, so I’m gonna save that for a separate post. 🙂

If we were having coffee together, what would you tell me? 




  1. LOL on May Madness and glue stick chaos! Interested to hear about your refresh!

    • Oh my gosh you should have seen it – it’s amazing how a group of nine yr olds can get glue stick everywhere…and the glitter – yikes! LOL!

  2. The end of the school year is always chaotic isn’t it? My baby is graduating! Taking a running break is always hard but you got this. Thanks for linking up with us today for coffee have a great day

    • Every school year I wonder why it is that so much gets crammed in right at the end! Congrats on your daughter’s graduation – big milestone!

  3. My kids are older so there isn’t as much chaos at the end of school. They’ve been out 2 weeks already. I make them do chores while I’m at work and then have little to do when I get home. 😉 I’m always sad when summer is over! You’ll be back to normal running in no time!

  4. I’m so glad you’re back to running – it is so hard to get back to it. It’s hard not to compare to how it was before the hiatus.

    Glad you got to volunteer in your son’s class. They remember those moments.

  5. Lots of luck getting back into the running thing! I’m looking forward to a couple of days off after my half this weekend… And especially extra luck without your kiddo for a couple of nights! He’ll come back with lots of memories I’m sure!

  6. I had to start over on my running plan and it is ok- I am coming back faster! Yes, we are way to hard on ourselves! Enjoy the summer madness, I remember summer sleep away camp was a blast! No worries Mom 🙂
