I thought I better sneak some time in to post here because we leave for Disney tomorrow and I might not get back here for a week!
Geo - I get the thermal regulation issue with long runs, and also when ever I'm just plain tired. I have a hard time ever staying warm in the hospital at night if I'm up late for a delivery. Hydration doesn't seem to matter for me, it seems to be purely related to muscle fatigue. I'd be interested to see if the Mag helps. We'll be in Columbus for an hour tomorrow! We're changing planes there on the way to Orlando.
Jen - I can't wait to hear about the new sprout/sproutette you have in there! And that tea party does sound fantastic.
1jooj - Good for you making time to exercise! And wow, not being in an actual residence that long might put me over the edge - glad you get to visit at least soon. I'm also glad your resume was jumped on so fast - nice to know you're in demand, even if you're not wanting to meet the demand.
Penelope - how are you hanging in there? Also, in case it still matters - I'd totally wear sandles with or without toenail. And if you do lose a nail, once the nail bed heals and toughens up, you can actually put nail polish right on the nail bed and it makes it much less noticable (providing you polish the rest of your nails, too!)
kerc - I hope you get a Geo visit, too. My kids are really missing the idea of dingo camping this year and Caroline is asking about her little dingo friends.
RR - I've been really spotty the last couple weeks, but I did run the last 2 days. Even before 8 am, it's over 80 and super humid here. Apparently after a ridiculous long cold spring, we got instant summer. I might get to run with Paige (HBM) in Disney! She and her girls are there now, and will be until Saturday I think, so we're hoping to hook up for a run.
NRR - I'm a mother-in-law! My son married his beautiful bride on Saturday. We had an amazing long weekend of it, and a beautiful wedding in which everything seemed to go pretty perfectly. I have to hand it to my daughter-in-law - she planned everything down to the littlest detail and there were many little personalized touches. Despite that, she wasn't the least bit bridezilla about it, and could easily go with the flow if things needed to be changed. I cried a lot, after thinking I'd be okay - there is something about watcing your son stand at the altar with his hands shaking and jaw quivering watching his bride walk down the aisle. He also gave a lovely toast to her at the reception, including thanking us (his parents) for showing him what it looks like to be in love, and that got me going again. I'm linking some photos from the wedding here - hopefully this will work. Wedding pics.
On a funnier note, my dh gave a little speech at the rehearsal lunch that actually included the phrase "make up sex is great." It got a big laugh out of the wedding party/family - and a second laugh because Chris and I (who look very much alike) apparently both put our hands to our face and made identical "OMG he didn't" grimaces.
We are leaving for Disney tomorrow. Catherine's high school band is marching there and performing in Dowtown Disney.
I'm really looking forward to the downtime, but now kind of freaked out because we found out late last night that the house we're buying in MO did not appraise for what we were supposed to pay for it. Now dh has to spend the day trying to renegotiate and getting this settled.
