Way to go, mommajb!
I'm giggling a little, too, at the mental image of getting stuck in your bra. Just one of the reasons I wear one that fastens in the back instead of having to pull over the head...I was always getting stuck with arms in awkward positions!
Happy May, everyone! Seriously, how is it May already? DS turns 4 at the end of the month, and then I start school.
Yesterday's school carnival was phenomenal. I have to say, I LOVE DS's preschool, but they really could work on their communication to new families about the events they hold. I honestly had no idea what to expect for either the silent auction or the carnival, and they were both just completely amazing. I had to work the first shift at the cakewalk, so we were there at the start, but we ended up staying almost to the very end, nearly 4 hours! They had a train to ride, a mule-pulled wagon, bounce houses, vendors, a puppet show, lots of carnival games for the kids to win prizes (beanbag toss, putt-putt, etc), and of course, the cakewalk. I am an evil mom.
There were a few moms who brought actual bakery cupcakes (each family had to bring two sets of 6 cupcakes for the cakewalk), so when my kid had his turn and "won" at the cakewalk and I was still working, I um...may have...put the ones he picked back on the table and grabbed a bakery box instead.
The ones he picked didn't look that bad (at least compared to some of the efforts and the many grocery store cupcakes
), but come on...bakery cupcakes, people.
And then I spent the last 10 miles of my ride today fantasizing about said cupcakes and the mound of buttercream frosting on top of them....
rr~I went out for a group ride with friends today. Yeah, with the A team. You know, my elite age-group friend Sonja and her kick-ass friends. Yikes. It was a "mellow" ride for them, which meant I worked my butt off just to keep up. And I tried really hard to get dropped after we made the turn, but one of the guys wouldn't let me. Seriously, I told him I was fine, just to go, but nope, he wasn't having it. He literally put a hand on my back and pushed me back up to the group until I could hold on again. I'm not sure whether I'm more
about that. There was about 10 miles where I really didn't think I was going to finish the ride with them, but then they chilled out a little again, and I managed to stick with 'em for the rest of the ride. It was cool to do an actual "group" ride and learn about all the strategery involved in drafting and stuff. Totals: just a smidge under 50 miles in just a hair over 3 hours. Longest ride of the year so far, by a lot! And then I got home and immediately ate a cupcake. And now I think I might have another one...
