My weekend in pictures. I really thought that being at home for a bit and not traveling would give me some downtime, but all of a sudden June became packed and everything is happening this month. I can’t say I don’t love it, though. I can rest when I’m dead.

Saturday after miles, I hit the pool for the first time this summer, got made of for my already visible running tan lines (don’t even care), and then got fancy to celebrate a good friend’s birthday. 

Today I spent a few hours in the kitchen prepping meals for the week, worked on school things until my mind was fried, subbed in for a game of kickball, worked on more school things, hit the hothumidstickysweaty pavement for some miles, ventured to the parents, ate mom’s delicious food, and celebrated Dad.

My family is always good for some humor whenever my sisters and I are around. For example:

(Due to some inconclusive test results for cancer on my Dad’s thyroid, he his having exploratory surgery/part-thyroid removal surgery on Tuesday).

Sis: “How much are they taking out?”

Dad: “At least half of it, more depending on what they find.”

Sis: “Will they have to give you medication to take its place?”

Dad: “Not if they only take out half. It’ll still make enough thyroid juice or whatever it is to still work.”

Scary? Yes. But you know you can roll with the punches when you can find humor in a situation like this.

Love my fam. They’re the best.
