Back to blogging about nothing

August 21, 2012 at 4:10 pm

This morning it was back to walking Mack to school. I have missed my daily morning walks.

We are trying to do the walk sans stroller this year, since it is only Mack and I don’t have two scooters to bring home. He is putting his scooter in the bike cage at school. It’s kind of weird not having the stroller even though it didn’t actually carry children at all last year, only scooters.

Back to walking to school, back to dodging my neighbors’ sprinklers.

Seriously, we had huge thunderstorms last night. There were puddles everywhere on the walk and it rains almost every day this time of year. Why do these people need to water the sidewalk and street? Ugh.

After I got home from walking Mack to school, breakfast:

That’s turkey sausage and Van’s waffles with Parkesdale Farm Market strawberry butter.

After breakfast I went to the gym for Bodyflow. Only, they don’t have BodyFlow in the mornings anymore. The Lifestyles Family Fitness to LA Fitness changes have been afoot while I have not been doing group fitness classes. They still have my normal BodyPump classes, but the time slots that used to have my BodyFlow classes now just have yoga. So I went to yoga.

It was a pretty good beginner yoga class, but I definitely did not sweat buckets like I always did at BodyFlow. Also, I will miss my favorite BodyFlow instructor, Susan, who is no longer employed there. They didn’t have many BodyFlow instructors to start with, so I’m guessing that’s why they dropped most of the classes. They still have it on Saturday and in the evenings, so maybe I will be able to at least take the class on Saturdays.

After the gym I went by Office Depot for the third round of school supplies, then to Publix.

Once home, lunch:

After lunch I did some laundry and watched some Dawson’s Creek (don’t judge…I never watched it the first time and have lately been obsessed with watching the whole thing on Amazon Prime free streaming). Pretty soon it was time to pick up Mack and his scooter.

I took that picture for my friend Sarah Kimmel, who just posted an article on her blog, Technology for Moms, about the Skylanders game shown on Mack’s shirt. Well, I said “friend”, but actually I’m just a stalker of Sarah’s. I have a geek girl crush on her. It’s okay, though. She knows all about it.

Now it’s almost time to go pick up Cal at his bus stop. It’s so strange having the boys on different schedules.

For dinner I’m going to make the Ratatouille Sloppy Joes from the Nov/Dec 2010 issue of Clean Eating Magazine. I’ve made this recipe multiple times because it’s so awesome. I blogged the whole process and the recipe in this post. It’s more than half vegetables and looks like this when it’s finished:

Well that’s it. I’m thinking of going with Chad and the boys on the family evening walk tonight. I walked 2 miles this morning and then went to yoga. Walking another 1.6 miles would not be “excessercising”, would it?
