7:00 AM: Core – COMPLETED
I’m seriously clock-watching it today. Is it 5PM yet or what?!? I have no energy whatsoever today. The weekend sucked all my energy out of me. Here’s the recap:
Friday: Fortunately, I did some food shopping at lunch for the weekend. My niece was sleeping over so after work I picked up the two kids.
As soon as we got to the house, we played. Then I made them dinner, we played a bit more, we took a bath at around 8 and we read a bunch of books before lights went out (8:45).
Saturday: My niece had dance at 8:45 so my BIL was picking her up at 8:20. We woke up at 7, I fed them, they watched a bit of TV and then I made my MIL’s yummy banana bread with chocolate chips. YUM.
Lili couldn’t get enough of it. My niece came back at around 10:00am, so I fed her some banana bread and then they played. By 12:00, I told them it was time for a nap. So I read them a TON of books and they both passed out around 12:45.
Pedro and I ate lunch late and then I did some laundry (3 loads). The kids woke up and I was dying to do some strength. Of course, they wanted to join me.
Scarlett lasted a good 15-minutes before quitting. When I was done, I played with them and cleaned up. Then my BIL came to pick her up at about 4:45. Exhausted. I started dinner at 6 and we ate around 7. I finished up folding clothes and then did the usual night routine. I laid out running clothes too but wasn’t meeting for a long run until 9:30. I get to sleep in…
Sunday: Yeah, sleeping in for me is 6:45. Lili woke up and we ate breakfast. Our morning conversation went like this:
Me: Lili, mommy has to go for a run today so Papa will be playing with you today.
Lili: (runs over to the treadmill). Mommy, here. (pointing to the treadmill).
Me: (sad face) — Yes, but mommy has to run outside.
It didn’t help that she cried when I had to leave her. I knew she’d be okay after, but still, it makes me sad.
Anyhow, I left the house at 9 (well close to it. I had to clean off my car) and got to the lake by 9:25. We were doing 18-miles – out and back – There was snow on the ground but nothing crazy. The route was pretty boring since we were on the same, long road for nearly 3 hours. The good thing was that it wasn’t stressful. We didn’t have to stop at a lot of lights, etc.
Stats: 18-miles @ 9:20 min/mi
Mile 1-14: 9:35 min/mi
Mile 15: 8:48 min/mi
Mile 16: 8:29 min/mi
Mile 17: 8:41 min/mi
Mile 18: 8:41 min/mi
And that’s when I lost my license. If you see that little, itty bit thing hanging out of my belt, I somehow managed to not zip it back up and, well, I’m driving without a license until I get to the DMV tomorrow. I couldn’t find all the documents I needed this morning. Ugh.
Anyhow, we finished our run before 12:30 and then I picked up lunch for P and I. When I got home, we ate, I showered, I baked brownies for Pedro’s Superbowl party that he was going to and I baked a mac and cheese for my sister’s Superbowl party. While the mac and cheese was baking, I gave Lili a bath, we got dressed and it was just about time to head out. And yes, I was exhausted…
While I was looking forward to being with adults, Lili wasn’t having it. She was attached to my hip and didn’t even want to play with Scarlett unless if I were in the room. I caught some of the game (more towards half-time and when the lights went out) but yeah, was with the kids most of the time.
Lili and I made our exit at around 9. She fell asleep in the car (just a 10-minute ride) and I called it a night close to 10:15. I just couldn’t keep my eyes opened to watch the rest of the game.
I didn’t really care who won the game, but if I had a choice, I was going with the Ravens.
What were your thoughts on the power going off? Did you guys like the half-time show?
Anybody ever lose their license? Drive without a license?
