Three Things Thursday (plus some bonus items)
1. My run yesterday was gorgeous. I hit the bike path at the beach. I took a little lesson from my naked run the other day and turned off my notifications from Run Keeper while I ran. I did have music and drowned out my breathing. Final stats: 3.52 miles in 38:43 (11:00 pace). I felt challenged and accomplished. Who wouldn’t feel great with this as the view from my turn around point? I saw some sea lions playing in the waves, but no dolphins.
2.Parenting: Dude had a little issue at school yesterday and had to move his clip in class (the discipline strategy in the classroom). This is the first time this year that he’s had to move it twice in one day, so there were consequences at home (no screen time). Why is it that when there’s a punishment for the child, it almost becomes a punishment for the parent? He had a really hard time entertaining himself in the afternoon without my assistance, it was exhausting all around.
3. School: I got an A in Introduction to Nutrition this semester. Yay, me. I’m trying to work on my class schedule for the fall and struggling. With Dancing Girl starting middle school, I may actually have an hour less in my window for the day of when I can get to class. Because of the commute time, I’m hoping to get my classes on the same days and only have to go down there 2 days a week. The hold up is that my other undergraduate credits aren’t in the computer and I’m not able to get into some classes that need pre-reqs (that I have). It’s such a complicated process – I’m not sure why it needs to be so hard.
Bonus 1: It seems that lots of us love our cereal. Thanks for all the comments yesterday – it appears that Cocoa Pebbles, Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Honey Bunches of Oats can be easily compared to crack. Cookie Crisp was also mentioned as an old favorite. Anyone tried the new “Fruit Loops” Cheerios?
Bonus 2: Don’t forget to vote! Thank you all for your support – if anything, there’s lots of new visitors around here, thanks for reading. You can vote once a day, I’m hanging around the top 15, so keep voting! There are lots of blogs creeping up, thanks for continuing to support me!
