In an effort to get some of the junk out of Lily's room (she saves EVERYTHING), I threw away a bunch of papers in her top drawer. Today we were discussing Father's Day... and she said "I have a card for daddy that I've been saving in my top drawer." You see where I'm going with this? Yes, I had thrown it away. Fortunately, it was still in the trash can, relatively unharmed (thankfully I had put it in my office trash instead of the kitchen trash).
Things Kids Say:
When Paige (age 3) decides to pitch a fit... it's a good one, and she goes all out. Her face is usually covered with tears and slobber... so she yells for a tissue or cloth or my clothes to wipe her face off. Why? Because "MOMMY, my face looks re-dink-u-lous!" What??? Weird child.
Vacation Bible School:
The kids have VBS this week from 6-9pm. I work in the nursery which puts me there from 5:30-9:30pm. Bonus - I don't have to cook dinner this week. The flip side is that I'm not exactly eating healthy, and I don't have a lot of self-control when you put pizza in front of me. I eat well at home by surrounding myself with good foods and few temptations. This is also making for late nights (my kids are normally in bed by 8pm) which makes getting up and finding that lost motivation on the home treadmill in the morning hasn't happened.
The Summer Playlist:
I know this has been asked a million times on blogs, but I never pay attention because I don't listen to music while I run. Well the hubs bought me a small MP3 player (nothing fancy... no iPod... just a Poloaroid 2GB player), and I want to put some songs on it to push me through my summer workouts on the home treadmill... which unfortunately, I find 10x worse than the gym treadmill where at least I can people watch and make up fake competitions with the other runners around me. So, what should I have on my player? And where do you download your music? Yes, seriously... I have never downloaded a song off the internet... never logged into iTunes or anything else. It's just never been an interest/need... I listen to the radio in the car, and enjoy silence or adult conversation on my runs.
