What happened with creepers?? I hope everything is okay! I miss seeing your posts
I have an ip tracker that shows who looks at my blog. Knowing that a few select people look at my blog 70+ times a day is a little unsettling. I mean what the fuck are they looking at? Mabel isn’t that cute, nor am I that funny. Gives me the creeps. I just don’t feel comfortable sharing anything remotely personal anymore.
Mabel: Ummm, I have pummus (hummus) and carrots and grapes and sammich (sandwich) with bee-gan-ayes (Veganaise) and Mabel cheese (Daiya) and comic books… And maybe I have peanut butter sammich tomorrow with crackers and strawberries… What we have for dinner? I take a nap then have a clif bar? The chocolate one.
Sometimes I have to make a serious effort to be a good parent. Sometimes it’s easy and natural, but sometimes it feels like a chore and I have to remind myself that you can’t tell your child to shut-up and slapping is unacceptable.
So if you’ve never hid from your child in the bathroom or put on headphones just to tune them out then I’m really not interested in being friends with you.
“Hey, mom. We can go to Whole Foods? I love Whole Foods. Them have guacamole there… and bean dip… and betchables (vegetables)… and soy nuggets… and rice… I love rice! I get some rice there? Please, mom. We go to Whole Foods??”—Mabel (I’ve created a monster.)
I’m training for a 10k in October with every intention of running a half marathon in March. I’ve said I’d do this before, but never made it past week two of training because I can’t finish anything. I’m looking to change that though so instead of focusing on the long term goal (13.1 miles! Yikes!) I’m just going to take it one week at a time. Now that I belong to a gym that offers both daycare and free classes I have no excuse not to get it done. Andplusalso as an extra incentive I’ve decided to reward myself with a small treat under $10 after every week of training I complete.
Here’s what my training entails:
Monday - 1 hour of yoga/deep strething
Tuesday - Moderate run
Wednesday - 1 hour of Sculpt (entails weights/squats/push ups/burpees)
Thursday - Easy run
Friday - REST DAY!
Saturday - 1 hour of Scuplt
Sunday - Long run
Also any extra stretching as needed. If you have Netflix there’s a really great video called Candlelight Yoga that I do whenever my muscles are feeling tight/sore.
Nothing like a good argument over Facebook to get the blood pumping. I know you can’t reason with idiots, I know that. I do. But likening abortions to “baby genocide” is the one thing I can’t resist. It’s like my Kryptonite.
You guys I totally cried when Micheal Phelps won that last gold medal, but it was quickly replaced by hysterical laughter when they showed footage of the Chinese gymnast named, Dong Dong. For fuck’s sake, what a terrible name.
