Yesterday I made it out for a 5.1 mile run. It wasn't a great one, and I was ready to quit around mile 2. That's the good thing about running outside--once you're out there, you can't just give up 'cause it's your own two feet that have to carry you home. Anywho, I had a choice around 2.5 miles whether to turn left and finish with 3 or turn right and go for my planned-for 5. Obviously I ran the 5, but it wasn't without protest.
It must have been the warm humid weather (we either tied or hit a new record high yesterday, 68*), or else my recent malaise, but I was not feeling it. Around mile 4 for about 5 minutes I felt great. That's not saying much for a 57 minute run.
Once I was finished, I was happy I'd put in the effort. I know my evening went better with the endorphins running through me.
After my run and after picking up the kids, I had to go to Target. I needed to buy a ton of stuff, so I got the cart with the two kids' seats on the front so the basket would be empty (Sophie usually sits in the basket and Luke sits in the kid seat). This was the first time Luke's been in this kind of seat, which provides more freedom even though he was sort of strapped in. It was such a pain. He did not want to stay put, especially since Sophie kept getting up and walking around.
I bought them a pretzel to share and Sprites to drink, and that kept him busy for a while. I got all the stuff I needed, and then we mosied over to the toys. I finally let Luke out of his seat, and he found a tricycle sitting in the aisle that his butt stayed glued to until it was time to check out. He was so cute, riding all over the toy aisles and up to the checkout area. Needless to say, he's getting a new tricycle for Christmas. But-- Oh, the drama when I had to take him out and put him back in the cart. I was ready to sell my 2 year old to the highest bidder.
I got the Bourne Ultimatum for DH, and last night I was able to watch about 30 minutes of it before falling asleep (saw it in the theater, but can't wait to watch it again--LOVE this trilogy). Wendy, you'll appreciate this. The back of the DVD has the bonus features listed, and on all but one, they end with an exclamation point. It was so annoying, and I kept thinking how stupid they looked-- "See the making of the car chase!" "Listen as Matt Damon talks about how sexy he is!" None of them were ! worthy. Luckily the movie doesn't reflect the DVD case writer's abilities.
Sophie was dizzy this morning, and it started when she rolled over on her right side. I made her get up, and made her go to school even though she still wasn't feeling 100% after breakfast. I called school about an hour ago and they said she was doing fine and hadn't complained about being dizzy at all, Thank God. I was feeling really guilty about pushing her, but I'm glad I did. Santa brought letters to her class today, and she'd have hated to miss out. Her ENT appointment is tomorrow; I'm praying we will get some answers soon.
