I’m currently avoiding doing my second workout of the day.
No, don’t adjust your monitor, because you definitely read that right. I’m procrastinating doing my second workout of the day. Why am I doing two today? I decided to be lazy on Thursday, that’s why. Well, a mom’s definition of lazy.
You see, on Thursday, I did laundry. I changed the water in two fish tanks. I cleaned a little. I napped, because it’s summer time & I had to work that evening & it’s my prerogative, okay? I have a right to nap & I’m fully convinced they’re medically necessary as a Moyamoya patient.
I know way back in April I said I thought I was ready to get back into blogging. And for a while, I really thought I was. It’s clear to me now that I wasn’t ready at that point. I’m probably not now, either, but that’s a story in & of itself that I’m just not ready to tell yet.
I have a lot going on in my head, is the gist of what I mean.
But so far, summer has been great. If I don’t do an amazing job of keeping track of the boys’ lives through a blog, I’m pretty good about it on instagram. I posted pics from field day & the mom & son event at the school, & just random things that make me laugh, because my boys really are hilarious little men. I also have posted silly stuff like memes that make me laugh, or speak to me, or podcasts I’m listening to currently, or one of my favorites: a shot of chipped ham from Islay’s because PITTSBURGH.
Speaking of Pittsburgh. We took a trip to Pittsburgh in April for spring break. The trip was totally centered around the kids & that’s exactly the way I wanted it to be. We went to the Carnegie Science Center, the Water Steps on the North Shore, the Point [for the fountain, of course], the incline [Bear really, really hated being that high on Mount Washington, but it was amazing to see the city all lit up at night!], had a sandwich at Primanti’s, & went to Burgatory, which…. Go. If you are anywhere near Pittsburgh, GO. The adult milkshakes alone are a solid reason.
We’re heading back in two weeks so I can show the boys Kennywood. I’ve been dying to take them for years, but this year I finally made it happen. So we’re going to be celebrating Butter’s ninth birthday at the park & I have a roller coaster riding buddy in him, so I’m happy. They’ve both pretty much refused to ride the Raging Rapids but hopefully they’ll change their minds. Bear wants to ride the little roller coaster & if that’s what it takes to get him excited about them, I WILL GLADLY RIDE THAT THING WITH HIM. If he’s not excited about coasters, I still have Butter.
I’ve written about all I can write for now. I think it’s time to stop avoiding that second workout.
[And dude. If only writing 500 words had been this easy in high school & college…]
