It was raining this morning, so we couldn’t walk to school. I had tentatively planned to bike to the pool and swim today, but it was raining most of the morning, so today ended up being a non-exercise day. Well, I take that back. I got a full-body workout in by cleaning both of the bathrooms.
My cousin works for Adidas and she can get me an awesome discount, so I wanted to check them out first. They are the top of the line Adidas stability running shoes. I liked them, so I might give them a try. I’m always on the hunt for the magical shoes that will work with my wonky feet and make running easy.Yeah, I don’t think those magical shoes exist either.
They had an awesome deal on Dunkin’ Donuts coffee (my favorite)! $3 off per bag! I bought four bags. I’m tempted to go back and buy some more. I rarely drink my favorite DD anymore because it is so expensive. I usually buy whatever premium coffee is on sale or BOGO.
They also had pomegranates…the first ones I have seen all season. Oh, how I have missed pomegranates. I’m so sad after the winter when they disappear from the stores. They were expensive, but I bought one.
Oops, that was almost the last errand. On the way home I stopped by the school to drop off the bundled Box Tops. After that I got detoured by whatever work they are doing on one of the canal bridges on our route…we’re thinking (hoping) they are just repaving since they have recently repaved all the streets around there.
I clocked the detour the other day, and it should only add a little over a tenth of a mile to our walk to school in the morning. I’m actually not even sure if the walking path next to the bridge will be blocked off or not.
He used Dale’s Seasoning (which is like 99% salt) and a little olive oil and they turned out super delicious.
I think I am going to love this show even more than Project Runway. It’s all crafty, and I like crafty. Make a necklace, belt and handbag out of garbage? Awesome.
Next I picked the boys up from school, then headed home. Halfway home Mack said, “Mom, what about my doctor’s appointment?” Oops! I totally blanked on that. So we turned around and headed to the doctor. Luckily, it’s close by so we were only ten minutes late. Mack has a wart on his foot which we lovingly refer to as his sixth toe. Cal has an endless supply of jokes about this sixth toe. Chad said I couldn’t put a picture of it on the blog (but honey, it’s so fascinating!), but you can’t really see it here, can you?
All of the office staff and the pediatrician were in costume. So cool. Also, each boy got one rubber glove and a Halloween goody bag. They were in an extremely happy mood to be at the doctor’s office on Halloween.
This is the second time the doctor has given Mack’s wart the freezing treatment. If it doesn’t work this time we will have to go see a dermatologist. Being a parent isn’t as glamorous as you thought, huh?
Thank you Mrs. F!
What’s better than macaroni art?
Now we are chilling before we have an early dinner and head out for tricks and treats with the Z’s. I hope you get lots of chocolate!
