Time for some favorites with Hallie, because all my blogging ideas up until today have included too many expletives for my PG rated blog and so much complaining that I started to throw up a little just thinking about posting. Mostly kidding there, but it was a rough start to the week, so to keep things nice and light, I will dig deep for some favs.
For me it is more like wogging (a walk jog). Like I said, yesterday was rough- and I will not divulge exactly how many times I had burst into tears before Mike came to my rescue to let me out of the house for a run, but it was too many (worry not, I just have a flair for the dramatic). After the run the tear sessions tapered off because running brings me a little sanity. I think even I picked up a pace a teeny tiny bit yesterday so that passersby weren't completely confused about what sort of recreation I was actually partaking in. Little victories.

I have lost count of the number of trips we've made to campus since the weather has stopped dashing all my hopes and dreams of outside time. Yesterday (again with yesterday) all three small ones were up from naps by 1:30 and I thought my head might explode, but then campus and the promise of seeing Mike in his carrel PLUS feeding the extra friendly ducks PLUS seeing other human beings went ahead and saved me from a trip to the loony bin.
McDonalds Iced Coffee
You cannot get it in a size small (bummer!) so I took one for the team on our way to campus yesterday and got a medium, held the liquid sweetener (ew) and added my own artificial stuff (because I know what true health is) and it was divine. I may or may not have gotten another one today.
Date Night, baby!

I think planning fun things on Wednesday is the best way to get yourself through the week. This is our first attempt having a babysitter come who is not related to us, and even though the girls will be in bed when she comes, they never actually stay there once put in, so we will see how it goes. I plan on ordering 2 margaritas upon arrival and downing them post haste so that if the sitter calls begging us to come back home, my judgement will be bad enough to say "NO! NEVER!"
