Back in the saddle again...

It feels GREAT to have another run under my belt!  It's not getting easy - but it's getting easier!  I think that must mean I'm getting fitter!  Tonight's run was AWESOME!  To think, I almost skipped it!  We had quite an eventful day today!

My son was standing on the living room chair so I told him to get down before he got hurt.  Does he sit like a normal person?  NO - he jumps in the air and puts his feet out in front of him so he lands on his butt.  Problem is, he fell to the side and nailed his nose on the arm of the chair.  OH MY GOD I have NEVER seen so much blood in my LIFE!  I kind of freaked and rushed him to the ER.  Thankfully the bleeding stopped and he seemed fine.  We waited for THREE HOURS at the ER and I decided we were just going to go home.  He was gabbing up a storm and laughing and singing.  He was just fine - save for what appears to be a black eye in the making.  Poor kid.  Of course - I sounded like an evil mom from hell when I chastised him in the ER for not listening. LOL  He sat in my lap and snuggled me for a while.  Of course my rule after you get home from the hospital is to strip at the front door and head straight to the shower.  The germs at the hospital totally gross me out.  I never let him play with the toys they have there - I know he thinks I'm mean, but people can be just gross!  Anyway - we all got home and got everyone in their jammies.  It was almost 8 pm and I realized that nobody had any dinner.  I was VERY tempted to go and get McDonald's.  Trust me - I just about grabbed the keys - but then I tossed a chuck steak on the grill and we had some broccoli and rice with it.  What a crazy day!

After I finished my run tonight, I was walking past the huge mirrors on the wall at the gym when I spotted something.  It was a shocking sight - I don't remember the last time I saw this.  What did I see?  I saw my butt!!  WHOA I'm starting to get some shape to my butt!  How awesome is that??

I got home feeling pretty darned good!  When I opened the door, what greeted me?
Yeah - he would probably kill me for posting this - but I thought it was super cute!  My hubby fell asleep with our daughter on the chair!  (Yes the chair where my son decided to rearrange his face this afternoon!) 

All in all it was a good day!  It was a bit hectic there for a while -but we pulled through!  I even managed to eat right in the face of adversity!  I REALLY wanted to grab a chocolate bar from the vending machine at the ER.  I didn't though!  

Well, I'm off to la la land!  Thanks for reading!  Have a GREAT night! -Monica
