I have been walking on the treadmill, besides my month or so of skiing before breakup, but I could not seem to ever walk any faster than when I started. Until today. Today I was able to step up my speed two tenths from what I have been walking. I needed that little break through today. I cannot tell any difference with numbers yet but I shall keep going because I can tell that I am getting stronger and building endurance.

Benjamin has had quite the winter. He has been riding the snow machine on his own now for a month. Saturday I get this picture sent to me while Dad had the crew out on the machines. Benjamin's face is no longer a baby face, he is growing up just as quickly as the other three did.
I am learning that Benjamin's love language is time spent with him doing something. I have been purposeful the past couple of weeks to make time for just he and I to do things and I have beefed up his "school" time. And boy, oh boy, that little guy has been so different with me since I began being purposeful. He sits with me, opens doors, helps me out of the van, holds my hand into church, hugs on me and just lovin'on Mom, which has not been his way for some time since he has been of preschool, independent age.

Tonight I am making potato soup for dinner. Potato soup is my sick food. It hasn't always been.
Back in my college days, I had seasonal allergies something horrible, I think I am allergic to Kentucky from February through May or June. Anyway, I lived on Wendy's French fries and soda when the sickies got too bad. Every once and a while I would mix it up and order a baked potato. So, the starchy potato has always been my go to sick comfort meal. Now I just do the potato soup thing because, well, what's not to love?
Today's potato soup contains homemade chicken stock, onions and celery and a little milk, salt and pepper. And even though I had to sit down and stir after the chopping I am thrilled to have the energy to make soup today. Yesterday I was immobile on the couch all.day.long.
Now Daddy stayed home with tummy troubles today but he doesn't seem as bad as the rest of us were. He is sick for sure though. He has napped and otherwise sat around except for one trip outside with the dog.
