Our living room is coming along. Matt has been diligently sawing, sanding, and painting shelves...and now they're finally hung!
|Sometimes his perfectionism frustrates me, but I was definitely grateful for it when I saw the finished product!
|Matt hung the shelves for our baseball collection first.
|Then we hung our race bibs and medals!

I love that the living room now showcases the hobbies we care about most: SUP, running, and baseball. Clearly there's still more to do, but I know seeing these hanging everyday will make my motivation skyrocket!
We had Thursday off this week for Rosh Hashanah. Matt and I attended temple Wednesday night...it was the first time we'd gone in the nine years we've been together. I didn't realize how much I missed being part of a congregation until we went. The old prayers, the music...just knowing you can look at the strangers around you and feel so connected...it's priceless.
The rabbi spoke about inscribing ourselves in the Book of Life, but also about making sure others are inscribed as well...in the sense that we need to remind people that we love them and that they're important. That they belong here and deserve to be here. It was actually a pretty heavy message, but also uplifting.
Thursday, we went for ice cream with Elizabeth and Roniel. I wanted to run after, but I knew cross-training was the order of the day. I did a deck-of-cards workout while watching Seinfeld. (My thighs are killing me today...hope they're feeling a bit less sore Saturday morning!)
|Vanilla froyo with crushed M&Ms (they just taste better crushed when in ice cream!), hot fudge, and whipped cream. Tummy ache in a cup!
|I used a deck from my bat mitzvah - the theme was Casino Night!
|I focused on core work.
You know all that rain we've been getting? The other night I looked out our back window and this is what I saw:
Seriously...could that be any more perfect?!
My long run is on the schedule for tomorrow...I'm seriously pumped!
How has your week been?
Does your school district/work give you Jewish holidays off?
Do you attend church or temple or anything similar?
