"It Takes Two" - Rob Base DJ E Z Rock

Everything is coming in two's over the last TWO days.
[where's all the 4's when you need them?!]

2 - # of sleep-overs Peanut has had in the last two nights.

2 - # in dozens of cookies that have been made.
2 - hours we spent planning our "luau" party yesterday.

2 - total number of food items [rice, pork]
2 - grass skirts purchased

2 - coconut bikini tops purchased
22 - minutes spent decorating
2 - pounds of pork butt we cooked to feed the four of us.  LUAU PORK. Holy. yum.

.2 - seconds after dinner was finished; it took for them to ask "Is it dessert time yet?"
2 - garbage bags needed for dessert
2 - scoops of ice cream

2 - happy girls building their creations

2 - confused looks when I said, "nope, no hands, no bowls, no spoons"

2 - seconds it took for them to totally welcome the idea.

2 - adorably messy faces

2 - times Pita said, "I can't believe you [clean freak] let them do that."

2 - shots Peanut got in her left arm yesterday.
2 - days until school starts
2 - dozen Healthy Bites I'll be receiving shortly [probably in two days] from this girl.
2 - night Pita IS "gone fishin' "
2 - days of [27 mile] pain free running.  LOVE my CEP brace.
20 - miles until I hit 2,000 miles for the year

Are things happening in two's for you?
or maybe four's [to make my day]?

Happy Two's-Day!!

4 (1000) - times I thought about running outside anyway
4 - times I changes my clothes for the big girl job this morning
4 - people who text messaged me on personal issues so far while I'm at work

cutest girls!!! What a fun party. Love it!! Enjoy sixth grade... somewhere during/shortly after they seem to turn into teenagers and everything is different. Not worse (although definitely harder)... just no going back. Enjoy the "kid"ness while it lasts. :)

SO FREAKING AWESOME that you are running pain free!! Yay!!!! I can't wait for my brace to come. I feel good, then stress it out a little and get sore, then feel good. PT saw me this morning and thinks it is still doing really well and healing overall but said to be careful and not push it too much. It's hard!

I am so happy you are feeling good though. Yay x 4,444
