Someone Slept in the Living Room and Someone’s Turning 4!
Thursday: 4 miles @ 9:07 pace outside/ Body Pump
Friday: 4 miles @ 8:30 pace on treadmill
Saturday: 6 miles @ 8:33 pace on trail
Remember how I told you Riley had to get 4 staples and a larger cone? Well, as you can see in the “pre-surgery” picture below, our bed is raised and Riley
likes loves to sleep under it. It’s her safe place. Her “home.”
Can you see the size difference? All the banging from her cone kept keeping me up at night and I’m already a light sleeper. One night, Todd said he was sleeping in the living room on a mattress pad with Riley with the door to our room closed.
What a sweet guy! I seriously got a GREAT night sleep. The things he does to make me happy 🙂
The weekends before Todd leaves for Taiwan are dwindling down and we’re trying to make time to see everyone before he leaves. He’ll be gone for our niece Addy’s 4th birthday, so we decided to watch her for an afternoon as an Uncle Todd/Aunt Heather play date. We went to the community pool in my SIL’s neighborhood and had a blast!
They have an awesome slide that we slide down a million times (seriously) and did cannon balls and swam all afternoon.
There were some older girls doing cheerleader stunts and Addy wanted to one up them, so she stood on my shoulders and jumped off…
We had a blast! We also got lucky, because it was raining ALL. DAY. the previous day and there was 60% rain/thunderstorms predicted. Lunch time rolled around and the birthday girl wanted chocolate chip pancakes for lunch. With her help, we measured the ingredients, mixed them together and made a yummy breakfast for lunch! We colored some Barbie pictures and called it a day. I think she had a great “pre-birthday” 🙂
And THIS girl (me) had a great run this morning. I was going to run on the treadmill, so I slept in. When I woke up (7:32AM) I looked at our thermometer and because of all the rain and clouds the day before, it was 73 degrees out! At 7:30!!! Todd usually sleeps until 8:30-9AM on the weekends, so I wrote him a note letting him know I was running on the trail and what time I left and headed out for a great run. Granted it was still 90% humidity, the temp was cooler and made for an awesome run. I can’t wait for nicer weather!
Happy Weekend 🙂 🙂 🙂
