July’s Ultimate Coffee Date

The Ultimate Coffee Date

Happy 4th of July!  I’m so glad we could take a little time out during this holiday weekend to catch up with The Ultimate Coffee Date. A big thanks to Coco, Lynda and Deborah for hosting! Don’t forget to check out the link-up and see what the other ladies are dishing about.

rp_fireworks.jpgIf we were having coffee together, I’d tell you that a 4th of July isn’t complete for me without some fireworks! We caught a great show last night and my youngest is already asking if we can see more tonight.

If we were having coffee together, I’d tell you that my oldest son has been away at camp for a week and I’m thrilled to say that he’s already written home! It sounds like he’s having a blast, which makes missing him much easier. I am counting the days until parents’ visiting day – 14 😉

If we were having coffee together, I’d tell you that I started physical therapy on Wednesday. My evaluation revealed weak and unstable hips (no surprise) and limited range of motion in my ankles (who knew?). So I’m faithfully doing my exercises and am scheduled for 2 PT visits a week for the next month or two. The exercises are tedious, but I’ll do anything to get back to running with less discomfort.

If we were having coffee together, I’d tell you that I’m doing two challenges with Black Girls Run! Boston this month – log 50 miles and a daily plank series. I love the way this group of ladies cheer each other on. I’m really hoping to squeeze in a couple of group runs with them this month too.

What have you got planned for this weekend? Are you catching any fireworks?



  1. When I went to camp we had to bring a letter home as our “meal ticket” for dinner on Sundays and Wednesdays. 😉 Interesting on the PT. I have weak feet and ankles.

    • I like the “meal ticket” idea. I have to say I was surprised to get the letter – better treasure it, might be the only one I get this summer 🙂

  2. I always miss my kids when they are at camp too! hope the weather clears up for your fireworks tonight. Thanks for joining us for coffee today to catch up! Have a great weekend 🙂

  3. I know you are missing your oldest! That’s a long time to be at camp. The camps around here are only a week long. I’ve always loved to watch fireworks but my boys never did. But if we we shoot them, they really enjoy that. I hope you continue to improve with your PT!

  4. Glad PT has a good plan for you. I’ve been ignoring a small ache in my hip for the last few weeks… I know I shouldn’t… thanks for the nudge to get it checked out.

  5. Those fireworks are so pretty! <3 I'm glad your son's having fun at camp! :]

    I'm glad PT has a plan worked out for you, and I hope you have a speedy recovery!

  6. Happy Fourth! I’m still not sure if we’re going to see fireworks this year, we didn’t really make any plans! Hope your physical therapy goes well. I have to work on strengthening my hips too. And that’s sweet how much your miss your son at camp!

  8. We caught the fireworks last night at Epcot and it was spectacular! Good luck with those PT exercises! Summer camp sounds great and it is nice that you already got a letter, I bet he is having a blast, I remember those days 🙂
