Three Things Thursday
#1. I have run 3 times this week! Yay me! It doesn’t sound like a big deal, but two of these runs have been just me and Spud. This is the first time (ever) that I’ve gone out with him in the stroller and not had Colin with us. I kind of thought that it would be really hard to push the stroller just by myself, but it’s not that bad. Colin can’t do it anymore anyways since it hurts his knee so I might as well get used to doing it!
#2. I went for an 11km run yesterday. I asked Spud if he was okay to not go out on a run. And in his honest 3 year old way he said, “No.” So out we went. I’m glad that we did – it was sunny (today is not) and he had a bit of a nap.
#3. The downside to #2 is that when we got home from our run Spud was really tired and complaining of a headache. He also said that he wasn’t hungry/full even though he’d barely eaten. I kind of shrugged it off (stupid!) and paid for it later. I thought maybe he just needed to sleep a little longer, but he was actually sick. He got sick all over our couch/floor/Colin right before we were supposed to sit down for dinner. So dinner got pushed back (chicken was still on turned off barbecue – worst dinner ever 1/2 hour later) while we cleaned up. We had to rinse our cushions in the tub so I had to bathe Spud in the kitchen sink. It made for a very interesting evening and a long night (he wanted to sleep on the couch at 1am – fine, whatever’s easiest – and eat at 2am). There will be no run today!
