I don't talk about my part-time nanny job much on the blog for the simple fact that I try to respect their privacy and I don't use their names or post pictures of the boy on the blog but today I'm going to break pattern and post a picture of how I'm spending my afternoon "nannying" today.
That's right I'm chilling on the front porch soaking up some sun, sipping on my Diet Cherry Coke from Sonic (thank you Happy Hour!), and blogging. Please don't think I am neglecting the poor child. We've already foraged for a snack and he's playing with his best friend as we speak. I feel like afternoons where all I do is read blogs is karma for all the afternoons I dealt with people at the bank with a smile on my face.
Besides blog reading and enjoying the sunlight I did get out and complete Life as a Running Mom's Leap Year Virtual Run. I started out with Lucky and Sasha and poor Sasha got peed on by Lucky so I took her home and struck out with Lucky to tackle the remaining 2+ miles. Between bathroom stops, a water break for the dog, and dodging an off leash dog we kept a pretty good pace. Besides peeing on Sasha, Lucky probably deserves an extra treat for his behavior on the leash. He managed to let a squirrel cross the street in front of us without chasing it. He did stand very tall and point like I was supposed to do something about it.
In tomorrow's post I'm finally unveiling my races page and showing you all a pretty much finalized list for my 12 in 2012 half marathons!
If you have Sonic, what's your favorite drink to get?
If not, what's your favorite cool drink on a hot day?
Did you run the Leap Year Virtual Run?
