So my day didn't start out well yesterday- got woken up a good hour earlier than I had hoped, had to clean egg off of my van, tried to go for a bike ride but found that we were under a wind advisory once again with 30 mph crosswinds on my route I had planned to take... But- it did get better!
Yesterday I found the birthday present I had been looking for for my DH, came home, ate a light lunch and decided to go to the nature center. I invited my DSS14 to come with. And he agreed! On the first invitation! No cajoling or anything. Took him, the dog, and my DS6 to the nature center and went for a 4 mile hike. Got a little wet in the river and burned a good few calories. DSS even told me last night that he was sore. I figure he's 14, in good shape, and a varsity wrestler so if he's sore then I know I was getting some exercise!!! We had a ton of fun and its always great when DS6 gets some good quality bonding time with his big brothers (since we share custody of the DSS's he misses them sometimes). We all came out good and tired and DS6 had a bunch of new things that he could wonder about and try to research (why do rivers flow the direction that they do? How do trees end up hollow? What kinds of butterflies, insects, flowers did we see?)
Today's been pretty good so far too. Its rainy and 60 today (it was sunny and 90 yesterday) but everyone is in a good mood. Church was good. DS wasn't too shy to get up and sing with his Sunday School class. Plus- I just got done making the best omelets I think I have ever made (diced roast beef slices, tomato, onion, spinach, pepperocini peppers and a little bit of shredded cheese) Even DS14 loved it and said it was the most filling 400 calories (mine was a little less since I used egg whites) he's ever eaten. Well, off to clean up my omelet mess and then to finish a few odds and ends for DH's birthday tomorrow and somewhere in there I'll fit in some strength training and hopefully some Microbiology studying.
