Today, I picked up my bib and t-shirt from the expo downtown. What a madhouse! Just a preview of what Sunday morning will be like.
The highlight of the day, though, was receiving flowers — beautiful tea roses and calla lilies — from my husband at work today. Came with a sweet note saying he and the kids will be cheering me on. What an unexpected and sweet surprise.
Water intake was pretty good. For breakfast, I had the PB&J I had packed for my lunch. For lunch, I had Mikey’s Late Night Slice pizza (1 slice of cheese and basil). For dinner, we went to an Amish buffet 30 minutes up 71N called Der Dutchman, at Greta’s request. The kids love it because they have really good fried chicken, rolls and Jello. Magnus also eats their ham. I had fried chicken, mashed potatoes, and a shredded lettuce salad with pickled beets and homemade blue cheese dressing, plus a ladle full of vinegary 3-bean salad.
Still can’t get over the flowers…
