It was indeed my anniversary weekend. Can’t believe we’ve made it past that 10 year mark! *Wooohooo!* We’ve been blessed through all the good and challenging days – has it been easy? Oh hell no! *lol* But it’s been quite a ride.. and there ain’t no regretting it.

This #Mission2013 – not just about the running.. has served me well. Let’s just say, things just took a turn – to a better side of me and those around me. It didn’t matter that we didn’t have no date on anniversary day or life ain’t as novel-perfect as it should be. I am just happy inside. Happy and a great sense of gratitude. That things have turn out to be the way it’s been.

So.. what have we #TheRunningFamily been up to the last September weekend?

Well, Saturday was a family day out for another Race Pack Collection. Our usual library trip. That yummy attap seed ice-cream.. And while #TheRunningPartner took some Me Time catching up with his sleep and rest after such a long long hours on the weekdays, I was accompanied by MiChicas at the running track later part of our Saturday.

I gotta tell ya.. That meatball sandwich I had for late lunch was oh so tough to get it burn! *lol* But yeah.. I made it through my #MissionLSD 10K round the track with these great tunes. And I so didn’t realize that I’ve clocked in 150 runs since June 2012! I’ll say.. that ain’t too bad right? Let’s go up a notch for #Mission2014!

After all that sweats done, to my surprise, I had a ‘Running Date’ request from #TheRunningTween. She so wanted to go for a morning run on Sunday – just the two of us – and no she didn’t wanna run on the track – she wanna hit the pavements! When #TheRunningKindergartener heard our conversation, she jumped in and pleaded to be a part of it too! *cuteness!*

Unfortunately, that Sunday morning was a rainy one. We had to skip it. And yet another surprise from MiLittlestChica (#TheRunningKindergartener), “Mommy.. Did you know that I was up before every one else this morning? I was up early cos I wanna follow you and Bubu go running in the morning.” — Awwwww… that coming from a six year old! *melt*

So.. No Sunday Morning Run. No Running Date with CheekyBabyMunster (#TheRunningTween). But these were still on my list..

Such a lovely birthday party for Megan

While big sister was having a ball at the party, MiLittlestChica had the best date ever – with her mommy..

"The Best Date Ever!" - MiLittlestChica
“The Best Date Ever!” – MiLittlestChica

And that 2.5hours of our date just went zipppetty gone in a flash! It’s time to fetch big sister now..

Back again in the arms of her big sister..

Oh did I mention that the heat was pretty craycray on Sunday? It gave me the throbbing headache again.. But this time, I felt so much better after a quick power nap – one that MiLittlestChica tucked me nicely in bed and hugged me to sleep..

With that priceless gesture and this handmade card from MiLittlestChica, I am just so humbled to receive such love and warmth from this tiny little person.

So yes.. after all the 4,051 over days (and more to come!) of being married and having this opportunity to be a Stay At Home Mom once again to our two beautiful daughters – I must say, life is pretty good for me. I am blessed. Praise Allah for all His Blessings! And Thank You to all friends for the lovely wishes we’ve received via my FB and IG. You’re all awesome! xx

Sincerely,

@justbeingarlyn xoxo
