Ramblings

I honestly don't have that much going on right now, so I thought I'd throw out some random things to talk about.

I mentioned before that Emmeline is obsessed with movies and wants to watch one (or two) every night. I decided that we needed to start limiting her TV time and last night was one of our first no TV nights. Girlfriend didn't know what to do with herself. I was trying to make dinner and she kept wandering into the kitchen saying, "I need you". Finally, she pulled out some of her toys and discovered her talking Elmo (kill me) and that kept her entertained for quite a while. She also found a bag of alphabet magnets and she was very excited to stick them all up on the fridge and singing her ABCs 20 times.

Jason got a flu shot yesterday and he was hurting last night. His shoulders were tense and his arm hurt and I think he had a bit of a fever. Poor guy. Being the awesome girlfriend that I am, I rubbed his shoulders and put some Icy Hot on them, made him take some Tylenol and sent him to bed. He was passed out sprawled out across the entire bed when I came upstairs.

I decided I was going to try and challenge myself to do 300 crunches per day for the next 30 days, or 28 rather, since I started two days ago. The past two mornings before my shower, I have gotten them done. I'm just doing a combination of different types since I don't think I could do 300 straight crunches in a row. I did this same thing last year and I got pretty good results. I think there is something on Pinterest about it, but I haven't looked for the pin.

My hair is a hot mess of bobby pins and hairspray today. I didn't wash it so I was trying to put it up in a cute way. I just starting pinning it up randomly and then sprayed the shit out of it. Oh well, the front looks cute at least.

It is supposed to be cold and rainy the next few days (have I mentioned how much I hate cold weather) which does not bode well for outside running. Guess I'll just have to suck it up and do it anyway. I really need to get more practice runs in before the marathon relay in a few weeks. It is one thing to have a slow time for yourself, but there is a little more pressure when you're part of a team.

That's about it for today, guess I'll actually get some work done. Have a lovely Thursday!
