Family In Friends
For a Saturday, yesterday sure was busy! I trained planned clients from 9-1:00, but then thought it’d be time to go home and nap before heading to my parents’ house. Alas, no such luck. There was a mix up at the gym over who was watching it, and apparently, since I was already there training a client, I was the lucky winner and ended up working/watching the office until 3.
I hadn’t planned on working seven hours on a Saturday, so I was SO thankful when I looked in my purse and saw a Simply Bar:
Coffee is my new favorite flavor! It held off my hunger pretty well, too
After getting home, I made a tempeh collard greens wrap, and then was off to meet some of my girlfriends in Peoria.
We just needed to be together. And let me say, that it’s comforting knowing 100% that no matter what, these girls (plus Destiny, who was in Chicago) will always have my back – and vice versa.
I don’t really have a lot of family in the area like a lot of people do. It seems like a lot of my friends are always off visiting the brother or sister in laws, or are at their nieces’ softball game, or getting together with their cousins. While I don’t have a big family (and Shane has an even smaller family) I do love the family we do have, and it makes me happy that I have girlfriends that feel like sisters.
And just because I LOVE this picture of Kim and me surprising Destiny on her birthday in Chicago:
That’s BFF love!
OK OK, enough of the sappy stuff!
After simply spending some QT together (and eating Q’doba) I made the drive back home.
Now I’m sippin’ on some coffee and eating a pre-run breakfast:
I’m not even hungry, but I have a long run to do, and I want to get outside before 8:30!
I think I’ve become slightly too dependent on reading my Kindle during my long runs
Actually, what I need to do is download some new tunes for my ipod…any ideas?
While breakfast is digesting, I think I’ll take Niko for a walk and make my decision.
Do you have a lot of brothers/sisters/BIL’s/SIL’s
Do you have friends you consider family?
Have a nice Sunday, friends
