Hey hey. Well this is sure turning out to be a BUSY week! Jack decided to get up extra early this morning (AND after having gotten up in the middle of the night for a 2am feeding), so I dragged myself out of bed and threw together some breakfast.
A rerun of yesterday- vegan pate on plain yogurt with blueberries. Hey, if it ain’t broke…
Around 9 Jack’s friend Odie and his mom came over with their jog stroller, and we took the babies for a run. It was pre-rainstorm and actually really nice out (and by “nice” I mean under 90 degrees). I think we ran about 3 miles and then did a 2 mile cool-down walk.
I lurve me some coconut water… as long as it’s flavored. Plain is nasty. Jack likes it, too.
For lunch we met my mom and sister-in-law (WEIRD!!! I’m still getting used to calling her that!) at Celebrity Bakery. I can’t believe I’ve lived in Dallas for this long and never actually eaten at a Celebrity.
I ordered the chicken salad plate, but then had eater’s remorse when I saw the roasted turkey. Apparently they roast the turkey daily in-house.
But the chicken salad was good. We also shared a slice of strawberry cake that was a-mazing. I made the mistake of letting Jack taste the frosting; he spent the rest of the meal yelling until we gave him more.
This afternoon was kind of a nightmare. I put Jack down for a nap right before a huge thunderstorm rolled in. He slept for about 15 minutes before the storm woke him up. I took him into the living room to play, but then not only would the big thunderclaps scare him, but then our dumbass dog would start barking, spinning in a circle and generally freaking the hell out every time she heard thunder- which just scared Jack even more.
Needless to say, I didn’t cook dinner since there was a Jack stuck to my hip.
We tried to grab a quick dinner at Tony’s, but the line was out the door. So we headed to our usual standby, Sali’s. They have a $5(ish) spaghetti & salad special. I had ziti with meatsauce and mushrooms.
Hoping I can keep the momentum going and get up to run again tomorrow morning! It puts me in such a better mood for the day… but it’s SO HARD to get out of that comfy bed. And the snuggly pug doesn’t help matters, either.
