What happened this week?
Socks! I started them Sunday night on a whim and finished them up Tuesday afternoon.
I used the universal toe-up formula from Knitty. The crochet cast on went smoother and once I did the first toe it was pretty just go from there. :)
New jeans! I actually received my new jeans (Free People!) last week but got to photograph them today.
I know that a lot of jeans don't come in specific lengths. And being a short person it's pretty tough. Thank goodness I know how to work a sewing machine! I lopped a good 4-5" off the bottom of these and hemmed them so they are a respectable length. :) I really like these jeans because they are a higher rise in the back, they're super comfy and soft! And to top it off I bought them at a discount from HauteLook.
Running! I hit 3 milestones this week. On Monday I ran my mile (outside) all in one go with no gasping, no stopping and not feeling like death. Then on Wednesday on the treadmill I ran 2.5 miles straight through of my 3 miles. Today I did 3 miles in 35 minutes which is a minute faster than on Wednesday! I am pretty excited that I am seeing lots of improvement this week after feeling like crap for the past few months of running.
Daily I just felt totally drained by the day's end every single day this week. It was like by the time the kids were in bed I wanted to be in bed too! But at least we have a routine going and have worked out the kinks in our double drop off days!
Books I just finished my book on DNA aaaaaand. I was super interested and into it at first. The last few chapters were really difficult to get through. I feel that this happens a lot when I read science books. I'm really into it and then my brain just shuts off. I will do a better review on Monday I promise!
The kids brought home their Scholastic book order forms last week and we ordered a few books from each. My husband always teases me that I don't have to order books every time...but I do. I so totally do. I love books and our house reflects that. :) Plus you get them for such a good deal, how can you not want to buy them books? :D
