Ok, How cute is this advent calendar? Jenny at allsorts just posted the pattern and I'm so making one. It'll probably take me all month but it'll be fun to have next year!

I'm also working on another felt stocking so that William has one at home and one at Grandma's house in Utah. I hope I get it done in time -- it's hard to do much of anything around here. Everything is slowly accomplished in 5-10 minute breaks when we're not nursing or playing. Good thing this kid is so cute.

I went running this morning for the first time in basically year. Holy crap. I'm so out of shape. No big surprise -- but it was pretty ridiculous. I've got a long hard road ahead of me.

But for now, William and I are going to walk down the street and finally mail some things while I listen to music very loudly. My dealing-with-stress method of choice? Denial and Distraction.

Can your family and your craft ideas BE any cuter?

Oh that calendar is so cute! And yes, exercising to loud music is wonderfully therapeutic. It ranks right up there with a good cry or screaming in the car - and burns more calories too.

I believe in you Cara - just remember how fast we progressed when we were training for our 5k. I'm about to start exercising again myself, as soon as I get through these finals. If you ever want a running partner you know who to call! Hopefully this old lady doesn't fracture any bones this time around.
