I was only about a quarter-mile into my run when I heard the back door open. I saw Seth walk through the kitchen and stare at me. He started firing questions at me: "What are you doing?" "What is that?" "How fast does it go?" "Can you run faster than that?" "What's underneath there?" etc etc. I was RUNNING, and it's fucking hard to talk when you're running! So I did my best to answer his questions, and then he made it all worthwhile by saying, "Wow, you're a good runner!" Hahaha, damn straight :)
|My intention was just a slow, easy run, but I guess it was more of a tempo run|
And then (speaking of funny things kids say), Eli (my 5-year old) asked me if he could get a step dad. When I asked him why, he told me that his friends have step dads and he wants one too. I explained what a step dad was and told him that he was lucky that he got to live with his mom AND dad. He thought about that, and then asked if he could have both and then they could both live here. LOL
We went to Jerry's softball game last night. I looked really cute in one of my new skirts, but unfortunately, I have no picture. Apparently, I'm the only one in my family that thinks to take pictures of stuff, which is why I'm never IN pictures (unless I'm with my girlfriends, who love to take pictures!) I did get a picture of Jerry and my kids...
|Eli being goofy. He played in the gravel the whole time.|
|Noah was actually interested in the game|
Today I have a dentist appointment for my 6-month cleaning. I hate going to the dentist. After that, I MUST go to the courthouse and pay a ticket that my husband got early this month. The ticket was for expired plates--and neither of us had any clue that they were expired (for 10 months, lol)! The ticket was deserved, but it sucks just the same. $100 for that.
So we leave tomorrow evening for Illinois. After checking out some places online, Jerry and I decided to take our little side trip to Madison, WI. I figured that since we've already been to Chicago, we can skip that. And Milwaukee is much farther from my sister's than I thought. Madison is only an hour away, and State Street looks pretty interesting, so I think we'll go there on Saturday. Not sure about spending the night there yet. I don't want to spend the money, but my kids really want to spend the night with Aunt Jeanie and NOT us ;)
Have you ever been "caught" exercising by someone you'd rather not have been caught by?
Have you ever been to Madison? Thoughts?
