A miracle happened at the gym yesterday. I did my 6 easy miles on the treadmill and at the end my mom called to say that Brooke was awake. I hurried out to the car to get home and as I pulled into my driveway I realized that I left my iPad (I like to read when I run on the treadmill) at the gym. I went back (must have been at least 20 minutes) and ran into the gym crossing my fingers that it was still on the treadmill….and it was. Right where I left it. I am very lucky.
When I got home I spent a long time with my dear friend the foam roller. This last week I had my highest mileage week in a long time (55.25 miles ((yes the .25 counts)) so I am trying to do everything I can to make sure I stay injury free.
Brooke and I spent most of the day watching General Conference.
I also went grocery shopping with Paige. I feel honored to have been with her for her first time trying a Kazoozle. Our friendship can continue because she loved them (I am still struggling with the fact that she doesn’t like candy corn). Try a Kazoozle at least once in your life please.
Brooke walked at least a half of a mile yesterday (I should have had her wear my garmin so I could get an accurate account of how far she walked) all around the mall.
This will show you how speedy she is now:
I know, I know…that was the most thrilling movie you have seen in a while…I just felt like I needed to show you how good she is at walking now.
From the mall we went straight to the Pizza Factory for a girls’ dinner (aka what I do every night of my life).
Breadtwists and my salad mountain. In case you were wondering, people do stare at me when I am making this 8 lb salad. That straw kept Brooke entertained for at least 10 minutes.
No evening with my mom is complete without ice cream especially if you have a buy one get one free coupon.
