Monday was so manic I didn’t even make it on here to post, despite my best intentions. It’s funny how you wake up thinking, “Yes! This is finally the day I will tackle with ease, and I’ll get my to-do list to-done, and it’ll be great!”
Then you get a phone call mid-afternoon at work saying your kid threw up on the playground at daycare and will you please come pick her up?
We’re not sure what she has. No fever. Just two episodes of throwing up at daycare. Or as she told me when I came to pick her up, “Mom, I spit all over the slide.” It may be a passing cold. (She gets gunky and has a sensitive tummy when she gets a cold.) All I can tell you is I am tired. I am tired of my girl being sick since starting daycare. I’m tired of thinking, “Hey, she has been pretty healthy this month” and then having a new illness hit the next day. I admit I’m a hardcore worrier, and I fear for my girl often. Hoping this passes quickly.
We’re adjusting to the other toddler in our house, too. She is about as good at listening as Dino-Toddler is. We’ll be working on obedience, but she’s doing pretty well for a newbie at our house. And apparently she fancies herself a lap dog.
I had a really decent run yesterday morning. I upped my segments to 8 minutes of running and 2 minutes of walking, and I was worried about this increase. I didn’t even feel like I had a grip on the 7/3 segments I had been doing. However, it seemed to go better, and I felt pretty good afterward. I think I was mostly thankful to be running before the sun came up (unlike Saturday’s long-run-sweat-fest experience).
Although yesterday evening kinda felt like a bust, I did come home to find my first Wantable package waiting for me on the steps. After hearing some glowing reviews from family/friends, I subscribed to their Fitness Edit. It’s a once-a-month delivery that has been hand-picked according to your “loves” and “likes.” You pick what you like and send the rest back.
Here’s your preview with a promise that you’ll get more info…tomorrow? I sure hope I get some time to try on the stuff tonight!
Read on. Run on.
