Running 3 miles
Knitting during 2 episodes of Breaking Bad (OMG! I am addicted to this show!)
Rinse and repeat
Today we switched our plan of going to Disneyland for an invitation to swim at my mother-in-law's. I am excited to see all the Halloween decorations at Disneyland, but it is still very hot here so I was happy to swim instead.
My mil's pool is amazing and we always enjoy spending time there. She treated us to sushi for lunch. Delicious!
Have I told you about my burning desire to move to Washington with my sister? Yes. Recently I have been missing my family so much I have started praying about moving up there. Well, any chance I get I am talking to DH about moving. Not nagging or trying to sway his mind, just pointing out little things here and there or comparing weather reports, things like that.
Wouldn't you know, the sushi restaurant had a roll called Washington! It was like a California roll, but topped with salmon. You know I ordered it! I just grinned at DH and laughed. It's a sign!
We were back in our old neighborhood tonight and noticed a lot of changes. I reminded DH that at our new home, we don't pay rent. I could see a little nostalgia taking hold of him. I told myself we are in a better place. We feel like we are in limbo, not totally removed and not totally settled. Could it be because we belong in Washington?
I am officially naming this my Wishington Campaign.
Slept until 8:30am and it was awesome
Homeschooling until 11:15am
Piano lessons 11:30-1pm in some incredibly refreshing a/c
Made dinner so DH would come home to a delicious meal (I've been slacking b/c of the heat)
Professor X had practice at the high school so I got to run on the track
Ran 4 miles (interval run/walk)
Now I'm waiting for my turn in the shower so I can go to bed and read. Not the most exciting day, but then I didn't tell you about the smell in the car and the ensuing search for the source. That was fairly exciting.
I did great sticking to my eating plan today. I had about 600 calories left even before my run. DH bought a package of Klondikes last week. The peanut butter kind. I love those!
So I ate a couple last week, and then I hated myself. I swear if that stuff isn't in the house, I don't miss it. But if it IS in the house, it calls my name. The cookies. The chocolate. And tonight, the Klondikes.
But, my Nikes were also calling to me. Go run, they said. Just do it, they said. I was torn! Although, I knew that if I went for a run I wouldn't eat the ice cream. I wouldn't hate myself. So...I think that was the fastest I've ever laced up my shoes! I ran! I had a great pace and an even greater sweat going. Aahh! So good.
Shut those Klondikes up, yes yes!
Saturday night ended with Princess O puking all over the floor, just outside the bathroom. All OVER the floor and the clothes on the floor. All. Over. It.
This girl is 9 years old but waited just a few seconds too long before sprinting to the toilet. I was the only adult home. Guess who had to clean it up? Yep. Me.
Puked up pb&j smells a lot like Thai food. I kept thinking, when did she eat chicken in peanut sauce? Then I realized I was cleaning up the sandwiches I made for lunch. I don't think I will be in the mood for pad Thai for a long, long time.
She ran a fever all night, which meant no sleep for me. She is finally feeling better this evening. I am exhausted. A sick child adds a layer if stress to everything. I am ready for some solid sleep.
Tomorrow we spend back in our old neighborhood at homeschooling classes. I dread the drive. The bright spot will be hanging out with my homie in the evening. I am looking forward to a shrimp burrito and a nice long chat.
How are you starting your week? Make it a good one!
