✔ annabel is sick. not terribly sick, but she has her first official ear infection [yes, i took her to the pediatrician and no, i didn't look in her ears myself]. she earned a 10 day course of amoxicillin and extra rocking, soothing, and a nap with mom in bed today. thankfully i didn't have clinic, so i just missed a day of lab work. and really, i'm pretty thrilled that she's made it through 6 months of day care before her first full sick day + need for antibiotics!
✔ she is also officially crawling. as of today! she had been getting around with a backwards scoot for weeks, but today she finally decided to do things the 'regular' way. so, our sick day ended up being a pretty exciting one, too.

✔ i'm kind of getting INTO running again. not just to prove something or get back in shape, but really and truly as a hobby again. i logged some faster miles this weekend, at least according to mapmyrun on my phone [i think that app overestimates pace a bit, but at least it provides me with a basis for comparison with other mapmyrun workouts].
-- 3.3 miles with the stroller, moderate hills on saturday at 9:10/mi pace
-- 6.9 miles on sunday without the stroller. 8:08/mi for the first three [east campus], then 8:33/mi for the rest [tobacco trail]
i was even inspired by meggie to take advantage of the holiday deal at believeiam. i don't think there is a specialized paper product that i'm NOT at least somewhat interested in . . . and this sweatshirt looks like perfect comfortable lab wear.
✔ the weekend, while bittersweet, was beautiful. lots of time with good friends and with miss a. josh and i enjoyed a fabulous date night on saturday evening with k and dr. s at one our favorite restaurants, revolution. they surprised us with an amaaaazing bottle of 10 year old wine straight out of napa valley, and we just had such a great time.
we will be moving to opposite corners of the US, but i know we will stay close friends. we are already plotting various meet ups/wine-tasting expeditions.
peanut butter banana tart @ revolution - i LOOOVE their desserts.
i also got to see susan and sara! we met up for brunch downtown and annabel mostly behaved herself [sara, sorry she is SOOOO in love with grabbing hair :) ]. i promise she is not as sun-bleached in real life as she appears below:
✔ i got a 2nd job interview . . . so it's back to FL in january! it's okay to wear the same suit jacket and shoes again if i get a different dress to put under it . . . right? i hope?
