Games, get stronger, overload

July 11, 2017

1. ‘Ammal!’ Rachel exclaims, followed by ‘tack, tack, tack’. I guess ‘you’re a duck!’, and on we go with one of Rachel’s favorite games. We kind of take turns giving the other an animal noise to guess, and she’s pretty good at it.

2. I’m not able to do my pushups with Rachel flopped onto my back. Also, she’s too tall to walk between my legs, especially when I’m in the middle of side lunges.

3. Library story hour was a little overwhelming today due to the huge number of babies, toddlers, and responsible adults. No wonder Rachel went to a quiet spot and laid on the floor.


Desparate, tidy, sore

February 18, 2017

1. Rachel chasing after the broom, desperate to get the piece of cereal in my dust pile (She didn’t get it).

2. Organizing the pantry cupboard. I love how tidy it is now and more motivated to work on the bigger areas. Plus, even though that cupboard has a safety latch on it, Rachel can still open it about three inches and now there’s nothing she can grab that is able to be pulled out.

3. Waking up a little sore from a Pilates workout I did yesterday. I’ve gotten into a rut of the same workout dvd and am a little tired of my 5+ years of Jillian Michaels, so it was good to switch things up.
