I Shouldn't Even Say It

But I will. Because, I guess I simply do not learn. Everyone is healthy!! We had such a great day yesterday! Kevin was super tired and slept in, so I got everyone in the car and we went to the gym. It wasn't the usual girls in the Kidz Club, so I got the requisite "OH 4 boys" and "Ohhhh are they all yours?" When will I get used to this stuff? I forgive them though because they took great care of my kiddies while I got on the treadmill. Ahhh the treadmill. Lately I want to run. Because, I don't know, I'm crazy I guess. I never dreamed I'd want to. Probably because as a kid/teenager running brought on asthma attacks so I just didn't. Then when asthma was no longer an issue it would kill my knees. So, now that I'm in a little better shape I thought I'd try it. I've heard and read that it is best to start slow and build up, so I did a 5 minute warmup, 5 minutes of fast walking and then I ran for 5 minutes. Then I finished out my workout with 15 more minutes of moderately quick walking. We'll see how the running goes on my days I don't have a class to go to. Then we went home and hung out for a while and then I took Eric and Mark swimming. They wore their little arm floaties and I was surprised (pleasantly) that they could paddle around the pool with great confidence. It was fun. I played with them in the pool for a little while and then lounged in a chair (while watching them like a hawk of course) while they splashed and giggled and had a blast. It was dreamy. Of course, I managed to get a sunburn because I'm stupid. I was complaining to Kevin, "I put sunblock on, why am I burnt?" and then he asked if I put the sunblock on before or after I put on my little coverup dress. Of course, after... So my shoulders and back were unprotected and after an hour got slightly scorched. This morning, it feels much better though, but I hope not to make that mistake again. Kevin made some nice homemade pizza for dinner and it was awesome!

So we had a fabulous day! I loved playing with my big boys, and we'll definitely all go back to the pool soon. Maybe today! I am so happy everyone is happy and healthy. Now I just hope that the
jinx doesn't come after me...

woohoo and I'm so jealous, because our pools aren't open yet. I think they should adjust their times for the hotter state, you know like open from April til November!
