If we were having a glass of wine, I would tell you that my leg freaking hurts. Training for the half-marathon is tougher than I ever expected. Running this weekend for my “long” run of 11 miles I was feeling great. I had remembered to fuel properly and as the miles went by I was amazed how much the training had paid off. Until mile 10.5 when all of a sudden a pain in my leg forced me to stop and walk the rest of the way home. It is getting better but my confidence is shaken.
If we were having a glass of wine, I would tell you my child might not survive her teenage years. I am tired of the eye roll, the sigh and the fact that because I said so is no longer a valid end to an argument. She is lucky she is cute.
If we were having a glass of wine I would tell you that Bridget managed a visit to Children’s without hitting any alarms. It was close. In the elevator I thought we were safe until I heard: BLUE SPARKLE BUTTON. I quickly grabbed her arm before the touch happened.
If we were having a glass of wine, I would tell you that work has been stressful but I see the light at the end of the tunnel. I hope it isn’t my older daughter driving the train towards me in revenge.
If we were having a glass of wine, I would tell you that her father might be helping her drive that train. He is currently plotting revenge for being made to take her shopping before going to a birthday party. Sadly this mother remembered the birthday party but not the present. Since I was at work it fell to him to do the shopping on the way to the party. They both survived the experience and I’m currently preparing my wife and mom of the year speech now.
If we were having a glass of wine, I would tell you that Bridget continues to crack up her school teacher. When she asked who had a dad and everyone raised their hand but Bridget, she told Bridget you have a dad. Her response was classic: She stood up, spread her arms out and said WHAT? Like no one ever told her she had a dad. I was laughing when I told David he was obviously working too much.
If we were having a glass of wine, I would tell you life has been more good than bad lately and I would want to know how your week was…
