We started off and Nick was quiet. After about 5 minutes he started saying something, probably "get out?" I couldn't hear him - it was windy. I gave him a bag of cheerios and his gummy bear vitamins and he was quiet for the duration! Poor Kara who is all stuffy had snot running all down her nose and wasn't too happy but she hung in there. We got in 3.4 miles running just over 32 minutes. Nick's new PR! It was so much fun and nice to catch up with Abby too. It has been a while! It felt so good to get out there and do what I like to do - instead of a kid activity - you know what I mean? Hopefully we can make it a regular thing. I forgot to take a picture with all of the million things going on in my head (do I have Nick's trains? Is Kara warm enough? Do I have my car keys?.... )
I have had some issues with wind and I'm wondering - is it worth it to get one of those wind guards for the stroller? Does anyone have one? Would you recommend it? I feel like Nick would refuse to have that in front of him... I'm not sure.
Before that I made it over to Whole Foods - really big nice one out that way. I bought 2 coconut milks for 39 cents a container (niceeee) - 2 coupons, and a few other things with coupons. After I got in the car (Nick was a distraction during check out), I realized they shafted me out of $1 of coupons. Dude, I work HARD to cut those things out and find them so I'm not happy about that. I need to pay better attention during check out. The other day at Giant, a similar thing happened where the coupons weren't ringing up properly and the guy just put them away! Had I not said something, I would have lost out. Lesson learned: pay attention at checkout!!!
After the run, we went to the mall where there is a merry-go-round - Nick had a blast!! I also got a free pair of underwear at Victoria's Secret with the coupon they sent out recently. Niceeee!! Really fun morning with bonus workout. I swam with the fast people today and enjoyed it. Not sure if I'll wake up and run with the fast people tomorrow :)
I'm really psyched about this bike!!! Thank you Abby!
Random Question of the Day: How long can you soak beans for? I soaked black beans in boiling water all day on Monday and still they seemed firm so they've been sitting in clean water since yesterday. Are they still good? ? ? ?
