And I feel awesome! I did a quick three miles (26:30) on the treadmill when Beer Geek came home and I feel so much better now. Whew!
This has been an awesome day. Jones didn’t have school because of the election, but Shoo had preschool. I voted early because lines were projected to be super long. After we dropped Shoo off, Jones and I headed out of the county to a cool toy store, where I scored some NASCAR Darda cars for Shoo for Christmas. Then we came home and worked on a marble run that Jones got for his birthday. After a trip to a local voting place to check out the elementary school band performing, Jones and I went out to lunch. He said he wanted an adventure, so we went to a local tapas place. I made him promise to try at least one bite of each thing we ordered. He ate ribs and kebobs and CALAMARI! And liked it! And then had one of the best desserts I’ve ever had. This was the first time since Shoo was born that I’ve had this many hours alone with Jones. It was so much fun. Jones informed in that it was his “best day ever.”
And I wish I was as happy in my skin as my kid is in his. He told me several times today that “I’m so happy being me.” I can only hope he always feels that way.
And to put the cherry on my day, VA went blue for the first time in my lifetime. Woot!
