143.8…Home Sweet Home
When I pulled into my driveway last night, my husband and kids were waiting for me outside. As much fun as my weekend was, it was so nice seeing all their smiling faces!
On my way home my husband told me that we were going to take the kids to our club for dinner. Sunday evening are “Slider Sundays” there and that sounded so good….I needed some greasy food! We met some friends there and all shared a bottle of wine. I don’t think I’ve ever been know to turn down a glass of wine.
They always have a few different sliders to choose from. I went with the Philly Cheesecake slider and the Crab Cake Slider. I also had a side of “frings”: French fries and onion rings:
That hit the spot.
The kids went to bed and I was asleep very shortly afterwards.
After a fabulous night’s sleep, I was ready for breakfast. Toast with almond butter and a grapefruit:
Hubby took the kids to school and I went to Cardio Muscle class. I decided to get my run in after class this morning instead of before. Last week I did it before and had a hard time getting through the class. Today I was supposed to do 3 miles focusing on hills for my half marathon training. I had to run on the treadmill because it was raining. I decided to run a quarter of a mile flat and a quarter of a mile on a higher incline and keep that up until I reached three miles. I was a sweaty mess at the end.
I came home quickly to change and grab a snack:
Turkey slices, a pickle and mustard rolled up in a wheat tortilla. We seriously needed fresh fruit and produce so I made a trip to Trader Joe’s. After putting all my goods away, I went to pick up my daughter at school. Once we got home I made a huge salad for lunch.
Mixed greens, cucumber, bell pepper, tomatoes, radishes, red onion, tuna with a hummus/balsamic vinegar dressing.
After inhaling the huge salad beast, my daughter and I went to pick up my son from school. From there we went to The Helen Woodward Animal Center. They have a program there called Dog Smart. Both my kids are afraid of dogs and I have no idea why. I would like to get a dog someday and I heard this program is excellent at helping children get over their fears and become more comfortable around dogs. The first appointment was getting them used to the instructor and meeting animals of different sizes to understand more about their fears. We got to meet bunnies, goats, a very quiet dog, some reptiles and even a few bugs. The kids did a great job. :)
My plan for the rest of the night is to make dinner and relax. It’s nice to be home. :)
Were you/are you afraid of dogs?
Did you have pets growing up?
