I ran the same hilly road tonight as I did last Friday, just a wee bit faster. My legs hurt! Is it normal for your inner thighs to feel it the most? Seems like a weird muscle to be feeling it in, but when I was pushing hard up the steepest parts, I was totally feeling it in the inner thighs. I think it may be a very good thing that tomorrow is a rest day LOL.
Today was a bit better day. Shoo and I went to a neighbor’s house for coffee and snacks. He was the only non-baby child there, but he did really well. Most of the moms there had kids Jones’ age or older, so their kids were all at school. The house was AMAZING. We live in an neighborhood that is a mix of 1930s houses (Sears houses and brick colonials) and newer construction that has replaced some of the older houses that fell into disrepair. It’s an interesting mix of large new houses, older houses with large additions, older houses that are in good shape, but are on the smaller size (what we live in), and houses in disrepair that are ripe for remodel or demolition. This house was one of the newer, larger houses and I was totally jealous of the fact that the “entertaining” spaces were totally devoid of clutter and kid stuff. In fact, it motivated me to continue my decluttering and straightening. When Shoo and I got home, he did some water painting and playing at the sink, while I straightened a book case and sorted through some of the stuff cluttering our dining room. While our house will never be kid stuff free in the main rooms (too small of a house, too many kids LOL), I have a goal for 2009 of getting the house back to some semblance of what it was pre-kids.
The best news all day came in the early afternoon, though. Our babysitter called and said she’s free Saturday night. Beer Geek and I get to go out to dinner! By ourselves! Without the kids! In preparation, I’m going to bed at 9:30pm tonight so I don’t fall asleep over my glass of wine at dinner tomorrow LOL.
Have a great weekend everyone!
