side note: I had just pumped out 8 miles in under 70 minutes on the treadmill at the YMCA. After I finished I told myself I could tack on another 5 on race day, no problem.
...so, we sat down at the snack area with a Sierra Mist (for the doc) and a Gatorade (for me) because I didn't feel up to walking around. To make a long story not so long--I think those 8 miles did more of a number on me than I care to admit. Regardless, I'm tacking on those 5 miles whether I can stomach it or not!
Anyway we wandered slowly down the aisles--something unheard of in my regular, non-date world--and I even discovered an aisle I had never been down (the Ziploc/Tupperware aisle) with all sorts of fun squeeze-top bottles. We left having spent too many dollars at the dollar spot and too much hard earned cash on candy for the ride--all worth it. I asked Dr. Gooch if he would get me a cheeseburger at In 'N Out (totally out of character for me--not to ask my mister for things but to crave a burger) What in the world!! He complied. I think all this running is also running up my appetite. We got home exhausted, but out of the grumps. This morning, Dr. Gooch commented that it was a good thing we hit the sack early because this is what I found in my bed this morning before I could even let out a yawn:
So go ahead tell me all about your bungee jumping, rock climbing, low-tide sloshing, water-skiing, kite-embroidering, cool wall fan-making, book publishing, yard-saling, giveaway-winning, first-day-of-schooling, rummy dessert-making days. Because I'm taking my hubs out on dates at Target and staying in my PJs all day with three under three feet!! Thank goodness for other people's blogs! Somedays, you keep me goin' folks! But, do you have a pool in your backyard?
