Well, I lied. I ended up eating two pieces of Eli's cake yesterday instead of just one. But the rest went in the trash! I wish I could say that I regretted the second piece, that it tasted terrible and I only ate it because it was there. But honestly, I truly enjoyed the second piece just as much as the first. I'll always be a die-hard sweets fan!
Speaking of which, someone asked me a question about my daily treat, and I've actually never been asked this before... She was wondering why I save my daily treat to eat at nighttime. A very good question! The reason I do this is because when I eat my treat, I want to really really enjoy it. If I had eat a piece of cake at Eli's party, I would have been distracted by conversation, kids yelling, music blaring, my tight jeans, etc, which would not have satisfied me at all. At home, in the evening, I'm comfy in my pajamas and the kids are in bed and I can sit and relax and TRULY enjoy my treat. Also, it gives me something to look forward to during the day!
The past couple of days I've been working on a batch of tea wallets to put for sale on my Gockets page. I've put them on there already, so I retitled the page "Shop" for lack of a better word. Anyway, they took soooo much more time and work than I thought they would, so that is the only batch I'll be making! But they are super cute and a great way to use up the fat quarters of fabric that I had.
I also was ironing the initials on a couple of Gockets, and Estelle was completely fascinated. She kept stealing the velcro strips from out of my bag of supplies. Then she just sat and watched me like a hawk. Apparently, she's taken on the job of quality control manager.
I've been trying to get a video of her playing fetch. I swear that she knows as soon as I turn on the camera and she walks away. But she plays fetch like a dog would! She has a drinking straw that she plays with, and she'll bring it to me or Jerry over and over over again to throw it. So we'll throw it, she chases it, and brings it right back.
Unfortunately, she likes to do it mostly in the middle of the night. She'll bring her straw onto the bed and then meow until we throw it for her. And repeat about 10-15 times. It used to be amusing, but it gets a little annoying after a while. She has us trained very well ;) Does anyone else have a cat that plays fetch?
Tomorrow starts marathon training!! I still haven't registered, but I hope to this week. My first week of training is pretty simple. It looks like this:
Monday- Run 3 miles easy.
Tuesday- Run 3 miles easy.
Wednesday- Run 3 miles easy.
Friday- Run 6 miles (long run)
Tomorrow, I'm actually going to be running 4 miles, because I'm meeting Jessica. I've only been running three times a week since surgery, so I'll have to add a fourth day. I'm going to try and stick to the schedule as much as possible so that I'm super prepared for the race. I'm still having issues with my knee (although not as bad as it was), and I'm just praying that it will get better on its own.
Lifetime Movie Network just reminded me how pathetic I am... "You're watching 'KILLER MEN SUNDAY' on LMN." LOL, how do I get sucked into these movies?!
