Unexpected Obstacle and a Kind of Funny

Tuesday, August 30, 2011

This morning we had a shower of sparks coming out of our kitchen light/ceiling fan fixture. I ended up spending the time I intended to use for exercise holding flashlights and tools for hubby. Right now the fixture is not back together -- it is dangling down, but the problem wires are not touchig so it is functioning safely. Hubby has to go buy a part to get it back together, but we were able to fix breakfast.

Little Gwen is napping right now. I go pick up Natalie from her 9am-noon PreKindergarten program in a half hour. Gwen at eleven months is starting to take steps. Yesterday when she tried to step from one piece of furniture to another, she slipped. Natalie yelled, "She did a cartwheel!"It did kind of look like that is what she was attempting. Luckily, there was no damage, and barely a whimper. I predict she'll be walking all over very soon.

DD is working 10am-8pm today which is a very long day for a massage therapist. DSIL will get off between 5 and 6pm and join us for supper, then take the girls home. After that I hope I have enough energy to get in a good walk. We'll see. At least I got my run in yesterday and today is suppose to be a less challenging cross training day.

    I'm trying to imagine Gwen about 15 years from now doing a cartwheel! Maybe this is just early practice! LOL

    Hi Marsha
    That was interesting about your light. Hope you got it fixed. It is so nice that you are able to watch your grandchildren growing up and seeing Gwen attempting to walk.
    Did you get a walk in tonight?

    Thanks for sharing.

    Yikes! Glad you were able to safely fix your fan! Never like to see sparks coming out of those :(
    Maybe you need to invest in a jogging stroller ;) Or perhaps, hubby could mind the girls why you get out for some quick exercise? If they are very active though, you probably kept up your activity levels chasing after them..
    But if you are tired, you need to listen to your body and rest. Maybe after the run rest was called for...
    Take care of yourself always..

    You sure will get your exercise in by carrying for the munchkin. Best part of having children is grandkids!!!!
