I was on my way home from work and saw a bunch of bubbles floating all around me. I always feel a little guilty when I see things like bubbles or fire trucks without my kids. It's the equivalent of them going to a half off shoe sale at Nordstrom without me. Unforgivable :)
Bubble source? San Francisco's Magic Bus...
I planned to run 6 today but I fought a headache all day at work and by 3pm I was ready to go home, take some pain reliever, and lay down. This means I need to make up for it tomorrow with 6 followed by 12 on Sunday. Is this a terrible noob idea? Maybe.
Just in case, I decided to use it as an excuse to fill my body with carbs. Yes I ordered Giorgios a 2nd night in a row. But that's because I forgot we are hosting two additional children in our tiny flat tonight and I promised them pizza!! The Dude is having a couple of buddies from school sleep over.
So let's add that up:
1 bathroom. It certainly makes for some - interesting potty negotiations (think lots of "do you have to go ONE or TWO because I have to go NUMBER TWO SO I GET TO GO FIRST NOT YOU!!" type of talk).
It's already been a very eventful night. I came home and crashed for a bit while Jon took all four of the boys to the park to ride bikes. I may or may not have secretly watched an episode of Girlfriends Guide to Getting Divorced and read some running blogs too - hey you gotta take advantage of these rare moments of house silence when you have it!
The Dude lost a tooth right before I got home! Then we ate pizza and Croc helped me set up a little sundae bar for dessert. Not sure how great of an idea it was to fill them full of sugar right before bed, but - hey - sleepovers are for bending rules!
We're counting down the days to our vacation. This is a picture of one of the stops on our road trip we did last summer. I should recap that road trip in another post to recommend our route and stops. We battled thieves, vomit, fire, and forgotten luggage - as well as several incidents of "the runner" taking off and disappearing at various points during the trip. Never a dull moment with this fam bam!
