I Can No Longer Shop Happily

Here is a fencing mask.

Today was very, very busy. The kind of day where I had to be at work to sit down and relax. I left my house at 5:30 and picked up the guy and then headed to the pool. We swam and steamed and then both went to our separate jobs.

After work, I picked up my girls, took them to the mall while I went to give plasma. Then I took Coadster to the store to pick up some things before she went back to college. I don't know if any of you have ever taken your college kids to the store, but they seem to treat it like an episode of Supermarket Sweep where they look for the big ticket items and then shop like they're getting ready for Y2k - hording food and health and beauty items...Little money grubbers.

Anyway, it's late, I'm tired and I'm going to try and wake up in time to run before work tomorrow. Wish me luck!

Oh I do wish I had the discipline to run before work!! I guess I could start with walking...sigh. Anyways, HNY!

Huh, an image came to mind. A money grub.
Do you ever eat enough to sustain all that exercise?? good for you though.

We JUST got back from Iowa. I don't know how long it will take to actually think of it as Iowa and not the most fucking cold place in the world, but I'm counting on that happening. ANYWAY, it makes me marvel even MORE that you can get yourself all ... active. Are you just hunting down heat?

haha! I am totally picturing Coadster running through the store, trying to think of every conceivable thing she could need for the next six months, and sweeping it into a cart :-)

This is late, but good luck!

My eyes felt a little heavier knowing that you were up at 5:30am to swim. I'm sure that swim felt good, though.
