I planned to get up at 6:30 and be showered and ready before the girls emerged from their room with their messy hair and moodiness, but after hitting snooze about a million times I finally rolled out of bed at 7:45... Oops. Sleep paralysis is real, my friends! I even was having a dream that I was riding my bike through the mountains alone and accidentally ran into a whole herd of black bears (you know, since they travel in herds) and they all ended up chasing me and I was peddling my heart out... Even that horrible dream didn't get me out of bed. Did I mention I'm petrified of bears? Cause I am. Especially Grizzlies. But anyway, I digress...
Once the girls came in and starting crawling on me that was motivation enough to get my sorry behind out of the sheets and into the kitchen so I could at least not have tiny knees and elbows digging into my boobs and vital organs.
I've subconsciously decided that I'm just going live off protein shakes. I made my usual this morning but added half a cup of strawberries because somehow that made it seem more "breakfasty" and it hardly tasted any different.
This was the first thing I saw on my Instagram this morning. Tell me God doesn't answer prayers.
We took our time getting ready and then we headed to K's school so she could do her kindergarten testing. Next it was off to Target to get some more of those protein/snack bars, but they haven't restocked yet. I was super sad. However, we did pass by the bar stools and I decided to just "look" for the house. Low and behold, they had EXACTLY what I've been searching for and they were ON SALE!! I felt like it was fate!
We had plans to go to a park dedication with Cory's parents but Brynlie was an extra flavor of grouchy so we opted for a nap instead. Kennedy spent the afternoon trying to be as noisy as humanly possible while I stayed glued to my mug and tried to avoid her.
Oh yeah, and I have a race tomorrow... This one will be bitter-sweet because it was the course I planned on getting a PR on when I registered months ago. But that's alright. There will be other races. My only goal for any races the rest of the year is to have fun and get more medals for my collection. That's it. Whatever happens, happens. It'll be fun to see friends from my running group and to run a new course. And get another race shirt that doesn't fit.
I also spent most of the day stalking the mail man. He is always at our house by 12, sometimes 1. Today he had a package I was super pumped about so of course, he didn't show up until almost 6 pm!!! But, he delivered the happiness in a box. This is sooooo stupid and childish of me, but I got my first pair of Ugg's and have been a major nerd excitedly waiting for them since.
Well, I'd better turn in and try and get some rest for this race. Hopefully I sleep ok to catch up on a crappy night last night. See you, soon!
