I thought I would join in on the popular Thinking Out Loud posts that Amanda hosts each week. It's a good way to get all of my random thoughts out of the way and link up with others doing the same.
1. Debating on which distance to run
I am going to sign up and run a race at the Calgary Marathon again this year, but can't decide which distance to run. Should I do the 10K again or should I do the half? I know I could easily run the 10k, but I also haven't run a half since March 2014. It's about time for another one!

2. The dreaded day care sickies
Amelia started having a runny nose and a bit of a cough on Sunday and so kindly passed it onto me. Luckily she hasn't had a fever at all and is still herself, so she's gone to the day home this week. Mine is a bit of a runny nose and a tickle in my throat that makes me cough a lot. Guess I better get used to it.
3. Day offs
I just found out that I am getting every third Friday off, which is awesome! Our work gives us the option to work a compressed schedule, so we just have to take a shorter lunch or start work earlier. I've been starting at 8:15 instead of 8:30am and am looking forward to those days off. It will be nice to have a day with Amelia or take a day for myself. I need a massage really badly so I am going to treat myself to one.
4. Adjusting to going back to work
Knock on wood, but so far the transition back to work has gone relatively smoothly. Amelia seems to be adjusting well to the day home (though is still pretty clingy and cuddly with me when we get home) and work hasn't been too bad so far. Mr.D has been a huge help in the sense that he has been making lots of dinners, walking Harley, etc. Definitely couldn't do it without him!
