I'm over the car - shit happens and it could be much worse! Far to busy being a proud mummy! M has been really ready to try a proper bike for a while and a friend has loaned us an old one. She jumped on it today and literally off she went!! She's so confident and just wanted to do it again and again. Going from the balance bike to the bike and skipping the training wheels seems to have worked well.
I am now sure I'll end up going into labour chasing a bike!!!
Welcome back Trendy - you are definitely not a non-runner if you can do a marathon in that time with no training!! SOunds like you have had a very tough time but you sound very positive and motivated now!
Caro glad you have met a kindred spirit - you def need someone who just gets how you feel (in your case with being sick and running. I still remember feeling so alone when my brother died because I didn't have anyone who had been through anything similar to really 'get' it. Glad you have some trips planned to look forward to and skiing for 2016 sounds awesome.
I have a poo story to add today M was happy as anything yesterday after having temp in morninga nd wanted to take her balance bike out so off we went round the streets when suddenly she said she had a sore stomach - not much I could do just head for home then suddenly she needed a poo. No option but the gutter and absolutely nothing to use to wipe etc (only had keys in my pocket!!) so just had to pull pants up and walk home - poor girl! Luckily was a one off so seems fine today. My sister asked if I went back to pick it up - ummmm not possible I'm afraid!!!! Ewwww! Sorry if thats put anyone off their food.
As if that wasn't enough s**t for the day my manager phoned to tell me that because of how they are restructuring while I'm away they will need my work car back (was going to lease it from them for mat leave). So now we need to buy a second car in less than a year - we finish paying my parents back next week for the last one! And will only need it for 5 months! So unfortunately my poor manager had to deal with a 38 week pregnant hormonal woman in tears on the phone! In better perspective today - not end of the world, much worse things could happen etc. But am just so frustrated at the relentlessness of financial challenges we keep having!!!
PG - that is such a rude comment esp coming from someone with absolutely zero self-awareness!! I used to hate some of the comments I'd get from people when running in London esp when you ran past pubs!!
I have a sick girl at home today which is NOT ideal!! She had quite a high temp this morning and was so lethargic! Of course she is fine now and wants to go to daycare but I'm guessing thats because she's had paracetamol. Daycare were laughing because when I rag she was in the background shouting and laughing.
Managed to buy a bit of time with some water and food colouring but fear it will be a battle all day long with me trying to work and trying to find things t keep her occupied! 8 working days left including today and still so much to do!!
Wow TT that is great but scary at the same time. Was there something that pushed him to go and see a DR after all this time?
JG sounds like your mum is in the best place - hope she comes right very soon.
TB - exciting re. your PHD and research project ideas!
I've just spent a morning dashing round town getting little jobs donw. Feel like I've accomplished loads before 11am! I love living in a relatively small place where it doesn't take ages to get from a to b. I also love that I can disappear off and do that because I did some work last night to free up some time while the shops are open. I am now pretty much all sorted for Christmas, just my sisters birthday present (19 Dec) to do and I'm done!!
