And Then There's This

So after the morning meltdown, I chose to spend my day in "off" mode, which I think helped. I posted my misery, watched a little t.v, ate some ice creams bars and Red Vines, read huge amounts of support from others, and checked my email obsessively. So my mood was picking up, and then I got this in my mailbox:

Now, I am not all too sure what is happening in this picture, but whatever it is, the look on Baby Nolan's face is priceless (click on to expand to get full effect). This is easily the funniest picture I have ever seen, though I am not sure why, and I am not just saying that because he's my nephew.

And this one, the little dude looks like he's onto my sister, got her number, knows her game. And if he could talk, it would sound a little something like this:

"So what I know so far is that, if I cry I get food, if I cry I get changed, and if I cry you give me kisses? And if I just give you a couple of cute-pie yawns, a handful of gummy mouth smiles and a couple hours of sleep here and there, you'll keep telling me how wonderful I am and rocking me to sleep? Life is good, baby, life is how about a little snack?"

Little dude is wise beyond his years...Just like his aunt.

My man.

And now my day is officially better.

Glad you're having a better day - it's amazing what some rest can do.

I just found your blog today, and it's great. Good luck with the rest of your IM training.

Just found your blog... cute nephew! I have a guess what he's smiling about... ;-)
About needing a break from training - take it! Triathlon is actually swim, bike, run, recovery. You can't skip the recovery. And Momo is right that you WILL be prepared on race day. The day will "just go by". You're going at a steady pace, not a hard pace. It SOUNDS more daunting than it actually is. You will be fine. There is nothing like IM. It'll be an amazing day and if you DON'T cry at the finish line, I want to hear about it!!!
