First off, I disciplinedly jumped out of bed at 4:30 this morning and drove off to the pool for my swim. I didn't hit the snooze or talk myself into the benefits of sleep outweighing exercise. Only, when I arrived at said pool, there was a note on the door that the pool was closed for maintenance. It didn't look to me like any maintenance was happening. I was kind of ticked off. They have both an email list of health club members and a fb page, so you'd think they could have gotten this news out somehow.

My niece came over for a play date, but I sent her home early because Elsie cried the whole time. She actually ended up taking a nap. Elsie and Ruth are besties, but today was not a good day for them.
To top it all off, Mr. Hippie is not home yet. And this does tick me off. I can never grasp why it takes less than 6 hours to get to this retreat, including two meal stops, but it always takes 9 hours to get home. The kids miss their dad. They are grumpy. I am grumpy. But I am a bit too irritated to miss him. I just want him home for some parenting relief. I have no idea how single parents do it! I'm done, and it's only been four days.
The best part of this day was that I didn't cook dinner. I loaded the troops into the van and we went to OG. There was no fighting over the bread sticks, everyone ate well, and we had dessert.
my bro posted this the other day when I was talking
about trimming my race time.
I guess it could always be worse. Thank God for small miracles.
