Yeah, I really don't know what was wrong with me last night when I came home from a MOMS group and all of a sudden starting pining away for my pregnant days. What?! I'm over it now. I've recollected myself and now have a grip on my feelings of wanting to get knocked up again. Good grief! I think all I really needed was a wake up call...a real one...with all three kids needing breakfast at the same time, forgetting to use their manners, and drawing on the floor with crayon. This was enough. But now they are all happily eating breakfast and reading their books so maybe it is time to think about another again. Nope! Done!
1. So, I went to this Mom support group/night out type thing with a friend last night. She's a new mom of two boys ages 2 and 4 so she's kind of having to adjust all at once to having kids. Usually I'm pretty socially outgoing. If anything, I'm usually the newbie that talks too fast, shares too much, and ends up eating my entire foot by the end of the first 10 minutes because of my lack of verbal filter. But last night was just weird. It was like I was a fly on the wall with these strangers when really I was sitting at the same shared coffee shop table. They were talking about running, races, getting in shape and all kinds of topics that you'd think I would jump in on but I didn't. I just kind of sat there and listened. I half expected them to ask me some more questions or say "what about you?" but they really didn't. I think eventually I revealed that I'm a runner but it took the entire couple hours. One woman was sharing how she had to bite her child to teach them a lesson about not biting friends. She had a Love and Logic (parenting theory) book in her hands and I said something like "Well, Jim Faye (writer of the book) wouldn't agree with the biting part...I was only joking because I'm sure I'd bite my kid too. Ha, but the look on her face was like I just told her she was a bad mom. Then my awkward filter laking personality came to a flair and I felt compelled to share random stories from my own life as a mother to make her feel better. Maybe I'll go back. Maybe I won't. Part of me doesn't think I have much in common with these women but I'm trying to give things a chance past the first time.
2. Running, Running, Running! I'm going to try to do some repeat 800s today before going to get a free sports massage that I won! I also have an appointment with my chiropractor for some torturous Graston Technique therapy. My hamstring has been feeling a ton better. However, the past few days, I've felt it a little too much for my liking. It is almost as if it is just groaning at me...a dull ache. Not so sure the 800s are the best idea so I am going to play it by how I feel when I get out there to run. I also need to look into purchasing a foam roller. I'm thinking this might be beneficial. Yesterday I used a can of spray paint to roll out my hammy...not too shabby.
3. Random. Does anyone out there know of anyone who plays World of Warcraft? Just curious.
Happy Tuesday! How are you in new social situations? Are you chatty, quiet, nervous?
