5:30 AM: 4-Mile Run – COMPLETED
Is it just me or does it seem that Lili is always sick? (insert very, very sad face). I am hoping it’s just the case of her teething, but when you throw in a runny nose, I just don’t know what to call it. What makes me more sad is that I couldn’t take off of work yesterday or today to be with her because of this closing that has been going on for three months now. Frustrating.
Anyhow, Lili’s been having a low-grade fever since yesterday morning and then in the afternoon, she was up to 101.7. Last night, she was much better, but when it was time to go to bed, there were several times that I had to pick her up and out of the crib and rock her to sleep. Poor girl. She couldn’t breathe so I had to give her saline drops. Between a three hour span, she had almost 13 oz. of milk. She was so dehydrated. At 4AM, she had a 100.3 fever. I waited it out and it slowly went down on its own. She was okay this morning, a bit playful and all. When I dropped her off at the in-laws, she was screaming crying. I felt awful. I hate leaving her when she’s not well. I’m waiting for updates right now on how she’s feeling…Like I said, hopefully it’s just the case of teething and it’s nothing serious.
My 4-mile run was actually divided up into a 2.6 mile run, 1-mile run and then .5. Lili kept waking up and getting fussy. It’s done though. I took a much deserved rest day yesterday and came back this morning — with very, very little sleep.
In other news, I finally had the guts to chop of my hair. I had been contemplating it for quite some time now… But kept going back and forth. I love long hair. But hair is hair and it’ll grow out.
FACTS ABOUT SHORT HAIR:
1. Even though I cut nearly 10-in off, I did not weigh any less this morning;
2. I did not run any faster with my short hair.
3. I still use the same amount of shampoo; hence, I doubt I’ll be saving any money in the hair department;
4. It takes me longer now to do my hair than it did with long hair.
Regrets? It’s cute. Do I miss my long hair? Sure I do. I think all women miss their hair when they chop it off. Will it take me long to grow out? It shouldn’t, but you know what always happens? It gets to that stage where you can’t stand it and then you chop it off all over again. I
don’t think I’ll hope I won’t do that though.
Did you ever regret a hairstyle? My one close friend permed her hair once and hated it. She ended up reversing it. Can you believe that’s how we ended up as best friends? She called me for the first time ever venting about her permed hair mistake.
