1. Newborns are a lot of work. Newborns kittens are too. One of my wild outside cats left one with the placenta still attached in my driveway on Sunday. I left him there for awhile hoping she would come back and get him. I even enticed her with a can of tuna. She ate the tuna and didn't even give the kitten more than a second glance. So now I have a bottle kitten. We named him Rocky, since we found him on the rocks in our driveway. Real creative I know.
The kids love sitting and snuggling with him.
2. Running... I did a 10 mile run Monday and got foot pain half way through. I think part of the problem was the very uneven road/trails I was running on. I did a five mile run today pain free :) after doing 65 minutes on the elliptical. My legs were feeling pretty tired, but that was sort of the goal since I am trying to not piss off my foot too much. I think I will stick to flatter more even surfaces for a while too.
Three weeks until I leave for Hood to Coast. Three weeks! I haven't really even thought of it that much since I was so busy with my first marathon and then trying to get recovered.
3. I took my son school shopping Monday for the first time. The school list seemed kind of crazy like sani wipes, hand soap, and kleenexes. Really? The school doesn't proide hand soap? I just hope they don't try to turn my kid into some crazy germ a phobe. Sure you need to wash your hands, but you don't need to be a freak about it.
Seems so crazy to have a a kid in school. He was just a baby keeping me up all night. The kids also had dentist appointments Monday and were cavity free! YAY!
