What I'm thinking about

As much as I don't want to post only about mum related things, it's hard not to since that's about all I'm doing.

  • Zoey is still congested. I took her to the Dr today and it's only congestion and we just have to wait it out.  I'm relieved she's not actually sick, but I wish I could do more for her.  
  • Tomorrow I'm doing a very mum thing: Going to Play a Latte, a playground and coffee shop thing.  It should be interesting.
  • Zoey got a play mat yesterday from kijiji and she loves it!  She can't do much with it, but she stares at the toys hanging down, and sometimes bats at them, though I'm not sure whether that's on purpose or not.  Side note, my home is becoming a little more kid ish!
  • I haven't gotten the courage to take her in the stroller for a run yet.  I'm not sure what's holding me back, but something is.  I need to just bite the bullet and take her out for a short run. (I like how I'm blaming it all on her, and not admitting that I'm nervous to run again and might not be able to run for very long!)
  • I feel VERY family ish and grown up because I ordered christmas card / pictures yesterday.  I have always thought that sending out christmas cards is a very family / grown up thing to do, and have never considered it until this year.
  • I would love to go to hot yoga again.  I need to do that soon!
  • I also would love to get a manicure, but I don't want to bring Zoey to a nail salon and would feel really lame asking someone to watch her while I got my nails done.
  • I've become obsessed with finding a well priced Keurig coffee machine.  I really want one all of a sudden!
That's about all that's on my mind!  Oh, that, and finding some long shirts so that I can wear tights and shirts and pretend like I'm wearing real clothes but really am wearing something that feels like pyjamas.

What's on your mind?

I would babysit while you got a manicure!

Don't feel lame to have someone watch Zoey when you get your nails/hair/whatever done.....It is going to be like that for awhile. I just put in hubby's iCalendar "watch baby so I can get my hair done" for the 23rd haha.

Go back to running when you are ready, there is no rush! Your body is still recovering and it might take some time to get back to running-Heather again, but that is ok! I don't think I'm going back until March...hopefully....

Put your running clothes on, get the stroller ready, but bring an extra layer so that you can walk instead of run if that's what feels right. Leave the Garmin at home, put some music on, and just do whatever feels right. If it is 30 seconds of running and 1 minute of walking, do it. If it is a few minutes of running in the middle of a walk? That's good too. Or maybe you'll get out there and want to run. Who knows? But don't feel guilty if running doesn't work right now!

I think it is just fine to ask someone to watch your baby while you get yourself prettied up- I wish I could come do that for you!

That's a good idea! I'll try gearing up for a run but walking if I need to.

I also will get my nails done. You've all convinced me. Too bad all my baby sitting offers have been from out of towners! I'll just go when Matt is home!

I love the mum related updates!!

Hope Zoey's congestion goes away soon.

Go for a run but don't have an expectations. Just start off with short intervals- like Learn to Run. You have to start back somewhere!

Go get a manicure! You deserve some alone time, even if it is to do something frivolous!

You know I will always watch her. And Quinten says he will too.
