Viola keeps asking if it is dinnertime yet. Did I annoy the bejeezus out of my parents like that? I explained to her that dinner won't be ready till the timer goes off. That hasn't stopped her from asking 14 times. I gave her a snack even. It's not about the hunger, it's becase we're having chicken & broccoli which is her favorite.
When I was at the ranch this morning, it almost started raining. But then it didn't. It's coming soon, though, I can feel it. Apollo was in fine form and I didn't have to chase him around the arena to get him to run off some energy. He did it all on his own: running, bucking and screaming. People were waiting in line to turn their horses out in the arena and as we came out Apollo ran up the little hill from the arena with his neck arch, his tail sticking up and blowing out his nostrils. He did a little half rear thing. I just didn't pay any attention because he always acts like an idiot and the more worked up you get the more worked up he gets. If you just ignore him then he gets sort of "aw shucks" like. We had a great ride after that.
Went to Costco. Bought food.
Dean and I went to the gym this afternoon. We took advantage of the complimentary-3-hours-per-day-childcare and dropped the girls off in the playroom. Dean likes to do free weights. Just going into the free weight room totally intimidates me. I think next time I'll bring my Shape magazine along and try to do some of the free weight exercises out of there. Then I'll look like a super geek for sure. I was totally looking forward to sitting in the spa in the women's locker room after, but Dean wanted to get going so no bubbly relaxation for me. Tomorrow morning, though, for sure.
Yes, I'm turning over a new leaf. I'm going to start getting up early in the mornings and either going for a ride or going to the gym. I love both and never seem to get enough time to squeeze them in later in the day- so I'm going to try this. Part of the reason we switched to Clubsport, though, is because of the generous childcare hours. So maybe I'll be able to get more exercise time in the evenings now with that.
Okay, off to write a paper for my Feminist Theory class and answer some questions for my Resource Management class. I'm on the plane to Denver tomorrow. I can't think of anything I'd rather do less right now than go on a trip. I hope it isn't snowing there. It won;t snow, right?
