I Hadz A Sleep.
Oh my goodness. I fell asleep after dinner while watching the Simpson's. That was at 7pm. I got up with the alarm this morning at 6am. I have now slept for 11 hours and I feel completely refreshed. I am still yawning a bit, but I think that is because of the amount of sleep I got. Now I am sitting here wondering if it has anything to do with what I did yesterday. I'll explain...
Yesterday, Ms. M and I went out and walked the bridge. Don't ask be the name of the thing... I don't remember. What I do remember is it is 1.3 miles in length and has a 15 to 20% uphill grade. Ouch. We drove to the park on the other side of it, and parked the van. From there it was a short walk to the large side walk ran alongside the span. I was almost out of breath going up the darn thing! Me! The woman who does a mile in the morning to and from the school, then another mile in the afternoon to and from the school again. I almost couldn't keep up with the conversation I was having. We did make it to the top and then back down. That was all well and good, but we had to turn around at the bottom and go right back up it again! We made it back up it too, and for a treat.... we went to Starbucks as a reward.
I. Am. In. Love.
I am in love with the new tea lattes they are doing now! Ms. M and I got the "London Fog". It was totally awesome. It was a blend of teas with Earl Grey being the top note in the flavors, steamed milk, and then I added some Splenda to it. It was creamy and yummy and I am in heaven! The best part about it was if we picked 2% milk for the latte, it only comes to 150 calories for a tall. Awesome again! I can't ever drink anything bigger than a tall anyway. So, we got our Bux and made our way back to the complex. Ms. M dropped me off at my place and we made plans to meet up and walk to the school later with Mrs. J.
On the Oscar front, yesterday was our first school walk with him. He did FABULOUS! I was very proud of him. He even pooped outside. Granted it was on the sidewalk, but I had a baggie and I picked it up! No nasty sidewalk for us. All the kids loved him, and when we got back from the school Oscar passed out for about an hour. That made dinner easier since he wasn't under foot constantly while I made it. I had a HUGE sinus headache and I took some medicine for that, but after I ate... I passed out myself! I was asleep and I woke up after what I thought was a couple minutes, but it had actually been a few hours. I changed into jammies and went back to sleep and here we are now..... with me writing my post right now, at 6:45 am instead of having it already done last night. They say exercise makes you sleep better. I guess they were right!
