Hodge Podge O' Crap

So today, I thought we'd take a little photo journey...

Yesterday, I went to the pool after work.  I swear I need a friggin' Sherpa, because here's the stuff I have to pack in the car in the mornings when I head to the pool...


My bags...I have to put them where I can see them, otherwise I forget them!

The main set of my swim workout...I had to ask the Hubby to translate it for me.  Notice it says "3 times thru", I was trying to pretend I didn't see that. :-)

The bags above do not include each of the kid's backpacks and lunchboxes.  And heaven forbid that it's a swim/bike day, because that means I need an additional bag to take to work, so that I can go to lunchtime spin class!  Anyone wanting to volunteer for Sherpa duty, please let me know!


And, I am sure you were wondering what in the hell I was doing when I was not able to workout.  Don't worry, I was staying busy...kids do that to you.  Kids can be quite a time suck. :-)

We played board games...here's the Kiddo getting ready for a competitive game of Monopoly Jr.

We colored...a lot.

We played outside...a lot.  The kids both received new scooters from Santa, so we took advantage of the great weather!

We went to the movies...here we're getting ready to see the latest Chipmunk movie.  We also saw Beauty and the Beast in 3D.  Jealous?

We tried some new arts and crafts....here you see the product of the new Spin Art toy.  We also used clay to make jewelry...you should see my new earrings that the Kiddo insisted I wear to work.  Super cute!

I organized my medals...in chronological order.  Yes, I'm type A like that.  Thanks to the Hubby for the awesome new medal hanger.  Finally, my medals are no longer in a box at the back of the closet!


We went to see Phineas and Ferb's Best Live Show Ever!  Even the Hubby and I had a great time at the show.  Our family loves Phineas and Ferb!

We played with trains...as you can see here, we have the entire island of Sodor in our living room.  Look!  There's Thomas...HELLO THOMAS!!!

My parents took us out to celebrate my birthday.  Yes, I always wear a huge sombrero when having dinner.  And yes, that is Tres Leches.  I shared.

The hubby threw me a big party to celebrate the big 4-0!  (more on that later)

So as you can see, I've stayed busy during my time away from running.  And, of course I've been stretching.  A lot.  I didn't think you wanted to see pictures of that, though! While I have thoroughly enjoyed the extra time with the family, I am happy to be back in training mode...even if that training includes aqua jogging instead of running.

I know the feeling of having bags and bags to get out the door! I've been doing less Y childcare and gym showering to cut back on that. :) So fun that you got extra time with your kids! And happy birthday!!
