Yesterday my SAHD hubby (well sahd for the month he has off here) kept Leah from taking a decent nap by going to the home improvement store.
Mom came home from work cranky as all get out and it was hot. So I left dh to get both girlies to sleep and took off running in my dingos shirt. Apparently I just needed a run as I didn't even feel the first mile. Vanessa and I should NOT run together as I suspect we'd both quit before the mile was up because I always have to talk myself into the groove of the first mile. Same with swimming, same with biking....Anyhow I did 3.5 miles on a new loop, came home and felt great.
Question: I don't sweat much. Apparently my body is thinking that radiation alone will do it for heat relief. I used to think I was dehydrated or just out of shape. I know neither is true for yesterday. I came home, doused myself with water and cooled off a bit that way. Any suggestions for what to do on a run to cool myself off?
: Was this a part of squeezing water out of rocks?
welcome to the new folks! Just jump in and keep up as you can. (when i'm MIA for a few days I just read back about 10 posts and move on).
dingo: has this been posted yet? In summer of 2005 mdc member Naughty Dingo was posting more frequently to the running thread. Someone said something about chasing the naughty dingo. We all agreed that it would be a fabulous band name. Somehow it became the tribe name....
nonsleeping babies: may they all find the karma they need for the day to get their acts together and blissfully sleep tonight.
katemom: how's the house selling/buying?
monica: my doggie had a tumor develop quickly in his armpit. Turns out it was a fat lump. I'll be thinking of you.
drjen: glad the visit with your mom went ok.
2bb: nice to see you. have fun in your tri
bridge: holy smokes! I drive on that thing often (when I visit the main campus of the university). I can't imagine.
unpacking boxes: yeah, i can imagine. My basement is just a mess with boxes -- just get a little "donate" pile going as you uncover all kinds of stuff you no longer need.
mandy: we have one of these
. My dh mounted it in the pantry area of our kitchen and it helps IMMENSELY. I have hardwood floors downstairs and a golden retriever. It seems to do ok. Once a week or so I'll wash the floors but I love being able to pick up the little vac and just get the dirt that comes in with 2 kids, a husband and a dog. IMO much faster than a broom. Not as effective as something like swiffer, but somehow we use it more than the swiffer style mop we have.
ok must get back to the paid work....
