GPS - finally

I got an early Christmas gift - a garmin for running! So far it's been so great! I now know my pace and time and although it's not all figured out yet I love it. I have been running when I can since the half but that hasn't been much. My husband works a lot and it's dark now at 5pm so that really limits my running. I usually run Mon, Wed, Fri - husband watches him Mondays (he has Sun and Mon off) and I find a babysitter the other times or take him. I prefer the babysitter. Usually my parents or my sister or aunt. It's a lot of work as I go to them about 20 minutes away. Sometimes I am lucky and they come to me like Wednesday. Tomorrow I am going to my sisters so I can run. I am ready to start running a lot again but really need to figure out the babysitter situation. He can be pretty bad still when I leave him and my parents will call me back. I can be about an hour and that's all anyone can handle so it's tough. I find the now it's dark that really limits my running as I used to get my parents to come out at night to work him and they didn't mind. During the day it's harder for them with their work ect. I am still nursing my guy - he just won't take a bottle which I don't mind it just makes it difficult to leave him with anyone. I never thought I could last this long but I have to admit that I will miss nursing him when it's time to stop whenever that will be...

Nagging breathing problems

Finally after seeing many drs and many tests I saw a lung specialist today and I have asthma they think. Probably brought on by my pregnancy as I have NEVER had this before in my life. One more test to in fact confirm....I am not that thrilled but thankful and grateful it's not worse. Also happy I can still run. I am putting together another blog of my daily adventures as a stay at home mom. Baby is 10 months old now so 2 more months of maternity leave then I am officially employed as a stay at home mom for the next 3 years til he's off to school. I got my wish - God always knows the desires of your heart xo
