Well, I don’t have a lot of food to share with you the past two days. Mainly because my insides wanted to be on my outside (meaning I think I had food poisoning or else I angered some digestive deity somewhere).
Some type of time bomb went off around 8 pm on Tuesday and didn’t leave until sometime this afternoon. As a result, I haven’t had much beyond water and tea.
Funny thing is I had a great run on Tuesday before the belly bomb went off. I have not done squat (or any squats) since.
I thought I was feeling okay enough yesterday to go for a run, so I got into my workout gear. That good feeling didn’t last long, and while I was changing into pajamas, D came in. Apparently he’s never noticed my sports bra today since he remarked that it looked like some type of battle bra. So now that’s what they will always be called. It sounds cooler 🙂
Tuesday night was mainly spent curled up in a ball of discomfort while reading. Nothing fun to report there.
Wednesday was work and then catching up with a friend afterwards. She and I don’t spend nearly enough time together, but when we do, it’s like no time has passed at all. And that’s really cool.
Thursday was an early morning work meeting, and it was bring my daughter to work day! I am part of a project to build a revolutionary new school in my region, and we had a meeting yesterday downtown. It was at 830, but since R had an appt at 1030, I brought her with me (I checked first).
So – I got to have a mommy and me picture! Notice she’s actually showing her teeth in her smile? That’s because I told her she had to…since it would be her last morning picture before braces!
So yes – her 1030 appt was with the orthodontist. And, being the strange child she is, was totally excited for it. No fear nor apprehension of any kind. The process was painless, and she spent the entire afternoon exclaiming “braces are so neat!”.
Then we went to the movies to see Insurgent.
And while today she is still happy she did it, the mouth soreness has kicked in. I never had braces, but my sister did, and I seem to remember a lot of meals through straws….
Otherwise, D is up in DC this weekend to see and take pics of the Cherry Blossoms peak (and possibly take in a Nat’s game!), and I have a houseful of kids (A and her friend from school are here).
As for me, it’s bedtime 🙂
