We were up and out of the house be 9:30 this morning to get the kids to a doctor's appointment. Half way there on the drive across town I decided to call the office to see if we actually did have an appointment. (We didn't get a reminder phone call, so I just wondered.)
Hee hee. Turns out we did not have an appointment. Hmmmm. What to do? What to do? We ended up doing a little shopping.
Evan needed some new shoes. I mean, he's had his current pair for TWO WHOLE MONTHS. Sigh. This child goes through shoes faster than he goes through toilet paper. We also got him a pair of running shoes for track to be worn ONLY when running.
I got a new pair of running shorts, a shirt, a hat and a water bottle. Now I just need a new pair of sunglasses and some sunscreen. Although, I'm sure I can come up with a few more things to buy for my sport!!
Did I mention that Eric officially signed me up for the half marathon in May? Yup. It's real now. Guess I better keep on with my training.
