|Daddy creating magic on the pit.|
I know, I know. You are thinking that this was a terrible thing to do to myself. Well, I did get some exercise. My Dad's got a large yard and Sofie had energy to burn. Since little Baxter suffered from heat and allergies, he couldn't give her the chase she wanted. That left me. We ran and played for a good half our in the heat. I burned some calories and energy. And to my defense, my womanly time was knocking at the door so I couldn't exactly control ALL the cravings! I did the best I could.
We spent time at the cemetary planting flowers on my Mom's home as well as the grandparents and little Alexia. My husband did a french prayer which was so very special to us all. I love that man. Afterwards, we said our goodbyes and hit the road. I have to say it was a miserable drive and I was hella whiney. My poor husband did all he could to soothe my irritability. Again....I love him!
After a 4.5 hours drive back home, my husband and I collapsed. We slept a couple hours and then noshed on salads and fish. Later we took a leisurely stroll around the pond and came back home to sleep all night. It was a deep and satisfying slumber. Luckily, I had taken Tuesday to recoup from the trip and I relaxed most of the day. Later we took another stroll around the pond but decided to extend it as the husband said he ate a lot and now felt the need to put some miles behind the food.
Needless to say, looks like we are back on track. Our relaxing, romantic stroll turned into a 3.25 mile, sweat soaking, 98 degree speed walk. I had told him my energy level was not where it should be. Guess he didn't hear that part. And being the competitive person I am, I didn't listen to myself and finished the walk. But it felt pretty good. I'm all showered up and ready for bed now.
Hope everyone had a good holiday weekend!
