Today, the babe and I headed off on a big adventure…back to school. Fueled up with a delicious (although not very visually pleasing) breakfast. The faux pancakes are better than they look, but I will eat just about anything if I think it’s good for me. 🙂
After packing the car with toys, diaper bag, playpen, and walker (yes there was still some room for the people to fit in the car), we were off. I was kind of over the whole day by the time we got to school, and I had to commence with the unpacking of the car. With lots of multi-tasking, I was able to work until about 11:30. This was a big feat! The babe spent just a bit of time in the playpen…
Most of his time was hanging out with me…I mean on me. Although I love having him close, I feel like my back may just break in two. Trying to slide furniture around and unpack boxes with 17-18ish lbs. on your chest is a work-out.
Mommyhood is not for wimps!
We celebrated the success of taking the babe to work and actually accomplishing a little bit with some new running shoes for me. I have been a big fan of Brooks for years now. I got my first pair at Riverside Runners in Lynchburg, Virginia. Then, I thought “Oh what is the big deal? I’ll just go to any old sporting goods store and pick up some new kicks (shoes).” This was a big mistake and led to wasted money and achy feet. Now, I go to Running Etc. in Virginia Beach. They are extremely knowledgeable and just genuinely nice people who recognize the power of a good run to make your life better. I can’t wait to try these puppies out.
Running shoes are my main fitness indulgence. I didn’t even ask the guy how much they cost before I said “Ring ’em up!” I don’t get too “geared up” with different workout wear or gadgets, so I just go for whatever feels best as far as shoes are concerned. Not that I wouldn’t mind some gadgets, new DVDs, lululemon clothes, Bosu ball, weights…The list could go on and on!
