Usually I’ve run at least 10 miles by this point in a week. This week I’ve run 3. I also skipped my workout class because Shoo had a dentist appointment. This is doing weird things to my brain and horrible things to my eating habits. I’ve been on a mini binge – too much chocolate and caffeine (yes, female things are playing into that too) and I’ve been cranky for no reason. I’ve been trying to keep busy to minimize the damage to my waistline and my children.
Shoo and I went for a nice walk today with a friend and her sons. We ended up at the Kettler Ice Rink. It’s where the Washington Capitals practice. Only one player (the team captain, Chris Clark who’s recovering from wrist surgery) was on the ice today, but the boys were quite happy to sit and watch him circle the rink. When he got done, he called the boys down and gave them each a signed puck! He was really nice to the little guys! Shoo is sleeping with the puck under his pillow tonight LOL.
I’m still loving my Mac and my ipod. I bought a small speaker that plugs into the ipod and have been greatly enjoying listening to music while I do stuff in the kitchen. We have a rather extensive (although fairly old) CD collection and I’ve been too lazy to ever bring CDs up to our main CD player. So far I’ve loaded 30 onto the Mac and have been enjoying putting it on shuffle. There was mention in the comments about never seeing Westerberg and ABBA in the same sentence. It’s even weirder to have them play back to back LOL. Today’s additions included Husker Du, The Clash, Son Volt, The Replacements, Meatloaf, and Blondie (yes, really). I’m having so much fun LOL! I think I’m going to need to figure out a way to separate Beer Geek approved music from non-Beer Geek approved music or I’ll be using the skip button often when I’m with him. ;o)
